RS Q8 owners can go all in with the ABT RSQ8-S package. First and foremost, the RSQ8-S impresses with an aerodynamics package made of visible carbon fiber that highlights the sporty character of the SUV. The exterior upgrades consist of a front lip with red RSQ8-S lettering, front and rear side skirt add-ons and a two-part roof spoiler. Behind the quartet of 4-inch (102 mm) end tips sits an ABT rear muffler and middle muffler replacement pipe to give the RSQ8-S an even more distinctive sound. An electrically controlled exhaust flap on each side of the vehicle creates a glorious resonance out of the end pipes. Power delivery also benefits, thanks to the integrated interference pipe and reduced exhaust backpressure.
Preferably the RSQ8-S runs on ABT High Performance HR in 23 inches. The flowforming wheel offers optimal handling thanks to its perfectly balanced weight and the elegant 10 spoke design in either Glossy Black or Dark Smoke finish contributes to the overall coherent aesthetic of the SUV. Alternatively, customers can choose the ABT High Performance GR in 23 inches for a more sportier appearance. Both GR and HR wheel designs are also available in 22 inches.
But ABT Sportsline of course not only offers a complete package but also individual parts for the Audi RS Q8. Even just installing the ABT exhaust that consists of a rear muffler, middle muffler replacement pipe and end tips or ABT wheels in 22 inch or 23 inches create a big wow factor and change the character of the car. Though the beautification of the RS Q8 doesn’t stop with the exterior. Carbon fiber seat covers, dashboard covers and a shift knob cover from ABT help to enhance the luxurious interior.
For the 2020 to 2022 model year ABT also offers a power upgrade. The standard output of the V8 engine is a thoroughly respectable 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, but the potential is far from exhausted, as the ABT Power S performance upgrade shows. Through the high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC) the engine power increases to 690 hp and 649 lb-ft of torque*.
