The presentation of the high-performance RS Q8 crossover and RS5 liftback will take place at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which will begin its work tomorrow.

A couple of hours ago, Audi press service announced that a high-performance version of the flagship crossover Q8, which will receive the RS prefix, will be presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show in 2019. It is worth noting that this car has already set an absolute record for the German Nurburgring race track among large crossovers. The car will be shown tomorrow, November 20.

The Audi Sport sports division does not want to talk about its flagship SUV, but reports that the car will be equipped with a powerful engine with two turbines, which is connected to the Quattro all-wheel drive system with a sports differential.

 It has also been confirmed that the RS Q8 has rear-wheel steering and active electromechanical roll stabilization.

Like the high-performance RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback, which should also be shown at the upcoming Los Angeles show, the RS Q8 will use a 4.0-liter V8 engine, which is expected to offer the same 592 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. According to recent rumors, a large crossover will spend 3.8 seconds to accelerate to the first 100 kph, and its maximum speed will be 306 km / h.

 The show will also show the serial version of the E-Tron Sportback and the “charged” RS5 liftback in the Panther Edition version. The latter will be presented only in 100 copies – 25 coupes and 75 sportbacks. All of them will be painted in Audi Exclusive Panther fancy paint and will ride on two-tone 20-inch wheels with a five-spoke design borrowed from the RS4 Avant. It is known that the starting price for the exclusive edition of RS5 will be $ 88,000
