Right. Let’s all agree here and now that the world doesn’t need any more tuned Audi RSQ8s. This has to be the final one.
This is ABT’s second attempt at fettling Audi’s flagship SUV after its first try turned the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 up to 690hp and 879Nm of torque—an increase of 98hp and 80Nm on the standard car.
Now, though, we’re talking 730hp and 920Nm of torque thanks to a new ECU and a new intercooler. Damn.
Known as the RSQ8-R, it’ll be limited to just 125 examples and will fly on to a top speed of 315kph. On top of the power upgrade, it’ll come with a stainless-steel exhaust system, 23-inch wheels, and a madcap carbon-fiber aero package. On a 2.3-ton SUV.
There’ll be interior upgrades too that include a new steering wheel, a start-stop switch cap, and a revised center console. The price for all this? Around £61,500 (P3.92 million) including VAT, but excluding the £104,000 (P6.63 million) base price of a standard RSQ8.
