ABT Sportsline, known for its exceptional vehicle modifications, has unveiled its latest creation, the Audi RS Q8-S, presenting a compelling alternative to the Lamborghini Urus. Building upon their previous work with the RS Q8-R, the RS Q8-S package elevates the Audi RS Q8 to new heights of style and performance.
Aesthetic Elegance Meets Performance
The RS Q8-S package adorns the Audi with a series of tasteful yet impactful exterior modifications. The addition of a carbon fiber splitter, a front grille surround, and dynamic aerodynamic winglets on the side skirts subtly enhance the vehicle's aggressive stance.
A new rooftop lip spoiler and a striking diffuser add to the car's visual appeal, achieving a balance of sophistication and sportiness that arguably makes it more understated than the Urus.
Wheel and Ride Height Upgrades
ABT has outfitted this particular RS Q8-S with a set of bold 23-inch gloss black wheels, featuring a 10-spoke design that adds to the vehicle's imposing presence. For those preferring a smoother ride, ABT offers an alternative set of 22-inch wheels. Additionally, the SUV's ride height has been lowered, contributing to a more aggressive profile and improved handling dynamics.
Boosted Engine Performance
Under the hood, ABT's enhancements are equally impressive. The RS Q8's 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which usually roars 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, has been upgraded. The new control unit from ABT boosts the engine's power to 690 hp and 649 lb-ft of torque. This power increase is complimented by a new exhaust system, with a rear muffler, a middle muffler replacement pipe, and redesigned exhaust tips.
Custom Interior Options
ABT doesn't stop at exterior and performance upgrades. Inside the RS Q8-S, customers can opt for a range of customizations. These include a carbon fiber shift knob, additional carbon elements across the dashboard and seats, specialized entrance lights, and a unique start-stop button, adding a personal touch to the vehicle's luxurious interior.
A Viable Urus Alternative
With its blend of elegance, power, and ABT's hallmark attention to detail, the Audi RS Q8-S emerges as a viable alternative to the Lamborghini Urus. It offers an enticing combination of performance, style, and sophistication, making it a standout choice in the super SUV segment.
