German tuner celebrates anniversary with special and modified Audi RS Q8 edition
Audi RS Q8 owners are unlikely to find their SUV a bit soft: with its 600 hp twin-turbo V8, their vehicle is indeed capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds. But if ever this is your case, good news: the German tuner ABT offers you its RS Q8-R, increased for the occasion to 740 hp …
The German, Audi equivalent of a Brabus (Mercedes specialist), revised the engine ECU and adapted a more efficient air exchanger, to get out 140 additional hp 4-liter V8. The RS Q8-R is therefore now capable of 0 to 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds, and a top speed of 315 km / h (with the option that jumps the limit to 250 km / h).
A special 125th-anniversary series
What to give cold sweats to many owners of Lamborghini Urus, who until then could count on their 650 hp to gaze fans of the Audi SUV, yet very similar technically.
And to celebrate its 125 years of existence, ABT has decided to produce a limited series of 125 copies of its super-SUV, which has also been stuffed with options. On the menu: a new steering wheel, carbon everywhere including the interior, and a revised central console. Specific 23-inch rims are also part of the game, as well as a released exhaust. Plates and logos celebrate the anniversary all over the interior.
ABT does not disclose pricing for its latest creation, but we imagine that the bar of 200,000 euros will be quickly crossed, a “basic” Audi RS Q8 selling for € 159,900 in France, before options and especially before penalties.
