Audi Sport supervisor Stephan Winkelmann as of late turned out and expressed he was going to twofold the quantity of RS-badged Audis by 2018, and one of the new increases could wind up being gotten from the up and coming Q8 leader SUV.
Autocar is detailing that Audi will review a potential RS Q8 with an idea at one month from now’s 2017 Geneva car expo. The Q8 itself was saw in idea frame only a month prior at the 2017 Detroit car exhibition.
The Q8 is a car like SUV due in 2018. It will be an opponent to the BMW X6, Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Mercedes-Benz GLE, so apparently any RS Q8 would match the elite variants of those vehicles, i.e. the X6 M, Range Rover Sport SVR and Mercedes-AMG GLE63, separately.
We can anticipate that the RS Q8 will be fitted with all the standard RS gear, for example, brought down suspension, colossal admissions in the front guard, an air bundle, and uprated wheels, tires and brakes. Autocar’s sources demonstrate that an articulated front splitter will highlight notwithstanding a more forceful grille than one on the Q8 idea appeared in Detroit.
The sources likewise show that the RS Q8 will be fitted with the 605-strength twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 as of now found in the RS 7 Performance and S8 Plus models. Such a yield would make any RS Q8 altogether more capable than its previously mentioned rivals whose yields lie nearer to the 550-hp check. Be that as it may, with evaluated 0-60 mph times of around 5.0 seconds, the vehicle will be a considerable amount a slower than the new era of electric SUVs promising 0-60 times of 3.0 seconds or less.
