ABT Sportsline’s catalog is famous for its diesel-powered version which can now be become part of the tuned version of the Audi SQ8 TFSI and move up on the scale to the super SUV class. A tuned engine control unit installed might boost the bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 to deliver 650 horsepower and 850 Newton-meters reaching now a crazy 0-62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) sprint in just 3.8 seconds and a 168 mph (270 km/h)top speed.
To make the SQ8 a bit different from the Audi stock model, the ABT tuner team added a bespoke front apron, a rear skirt set, roof spoiler, and optional matte or glossy black 23-inch wheels. Also, the ABT upgrades ABT might cost up to $27,958 (€22,900) in Germany. The price does not include the installation and paint costs that add another $4,206 (€3,445).
The ABT made the tuned SQ8 complete vehicle version available for $159,684 (€130,795). You could opt for the performance upgrade for your RS Q8 that would help you get up to 730 horsepower, 920 Newton-meters of torque, and a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in less than 3.5 seconds with a 196 mph (315 km/h) top speed.
