ABT just revealed a new version of its flagship SUV Audi Q8 dubbed as the RSQ8-R. Visually the new models benefit a new aerodynamic body kit with carbon fiber front skirt, mirror caps, side skirt, front lip, wheelhouse ventilation, rear spoiler, and fender extensions. There are also new 23-inch wheels from ABT wrapped with 295/35 R23 tires.
Inside the cabin, there are also a new ABT sport steering wheel. New start button, sport seats and RESQ8-R badging.
The biggest change for the ABT RSQ8-R is under the bunnet where the tuner took the power of the-liter twin-turbo V8 engine to 730 hp and 920 nm of torque enabling the performance SUV to hit 100 kph in 3.5 seconds and hit the top speed of 315 kph. By considering the top speed figure the RSQ8-R is the fastest SUV in the world and can dust Lamborghini Urus and Bentley Bentayga. The top speed for the Bentayga is 306 kph and it is 305 kph for the Italian Urus.
ABT reached these fabulous numbers by installing a new engine control module, new revised intercooler, and stainless steel exhaust system with four 102 mm tailpipes.
ABT will build only 125 examples of the RSQ8-R.
