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).
