The full-size German crossover from the ABT studio is ideal for those who can not wait for the appearance of the high-performance RS Q8. Presentation of the latter will take place next month.

In early August this year, Audi released an interesting teaser featuring six future models of the RS-family, which should be presented before the end of the year. Already the end of October, and we saw five of them: RS Q3, RS Q3 Sportback crossovers, RS4 Avant and RS6 Avant station wagons, as well as the RS7 Sportback sportsback – but what about the sixth? We are inclined to believe that this will be the RS version of the flagship crossover Q8.

  If you like the almost instantaneous torque created by TDI diesel engines, but want more from them, ABT tuning company will find what to offer you. They have already managed to get one copy of the SQ8 crossover just a few months after its official show.

And in a fairly short amount of time, the power of the 4.0-liter Twin-Turbo V8 engine has increased from 435 horsepower (900 Nm) to an impressive 520 hp (970 Nm).

  Such torque might seem unnecessary, but we must remember that the Audi SQ8 TDI is one of the heaviest vehicles available today – the car weighs 2,440 kg with a driver weighing 75 kg and a fuel tank filled up to 90%. Therefore, the crossover needs all the torque that is available, it is reported that full torque is already available at 1250 rpm. in standard SQ8.

  The upgraded crossover can accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.45 seconds, and the maximum speed is 250 km / h. The official presentation of the “hot” RS Q8 crossover may take place at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month.

Not so long ago, we wrote that under the name Audi TT they will sell a new electric crossover. Poor sales of the German sports coupe may mean that the Audi TT model, in its current form, will nevertheless disappear from the company’s lineup. Under this name, a new electric crossover will be sold – its working name is Audi ettron.
