Navarra Blue Audi Q8 Spotted In Showroom With Bespoke Interior

As long as you’re already spending Porsche Cayenne money on a luxury crossover from Audi, you might as well entertain the idea of having it feature a bespoke interior, to go with that Navarra Blue Metallic body.

We found this particular example parked at the Audi Forum in Neckarsulm, and we must admit that its shiny dark blue exterior is quite eye-catching, perhaps even more so than the Q8’s signature Dragon Orange metallic finish.

Go for the bespoke interior

If you like your luxury vehicles customized to look a little more special than stock, there’s little reason not to opt for an Audi Exclusive interior when it comes to the Q8. Sure, pricing is the great decider, but this isn’t the type of car you buy when you’re strapped for cash.

Aside from the black leather, wooden surfaces and aluminum inserts, what you see here are dual-tone Diamond Silver and Royal Blue front seats, a color combo that’s also found in the back. There’s more Diamond Silver on the door panels, although from this angle it’s hard to say if Royal Blue was also used on there. Either way, you can set the car’s ambient lighting system to ‘Blue’ and you’re all set as far as contrast goes.

As for what this car offers from a performance standpoint, we know that it’s a 50 TDI quattro model, which means that it’s powered by a 3.0-liter turbo diesel unit, good for 286 PS (282 HP) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. In a straight line, it’ll get from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds, before maxing out at 231 km/h (144 mph).

    The styling on this thing is horrendous. Sadly, Audi probably calls it agressive & dynamic.

    I saw a few of these in the showroom when I was getting my A7 serviced. I was extremely underwhelmed. The styling and proportions are off… kind of like the first generation Porsche Panamera. There’s something just not right about it. Now that new A7… now that’s a thing of beauty. That and the new A6. The A8 is blah… it has no presence whatsoever. The Mercedes S Class still looks better, which is a shame. Hell, the new Lexus LS looks better than the A8… and I wouldn’t buy the Lexus either. But at least it has presence.

    The overall shape and proportion is okay. The color is stunning. But that front end is a disaster. Good design rarely includes layers upon layers of plastic, capped with plastichrome. It’s as if there was a contest to see how many cut lines they could include on a single bumper.

    That Navarra blue is absolutely lovely.

    I really am not a fan of Audi’s new interiors. Sat in one, and they really…well…suck. I mean if you like the look of just black screens with finger prints all over it, then maybe you’ll like it.
