2020 Audi RS Q8 Scheduled To Launch On November 20?

Audi’s Q8 family will soon be get a range-topping RS version. Without revealing their sources, Spain’s AutoBild reports that the official unveiling has been set for November 20.

Slotting above the SQ8, the hyper sports activity coupe will be a more affordable alternative to the Lamborghini Urus, albeit with less power, as the 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 that makes 641 HP in the Italian super SUV is expected to be de-tuned to around 600 HP.

Going against the BMW X6 M, Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe and Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe, the RS Q8 will differentiate itself from the rest of the range by adopting a sportier styling. Expect bespoke front and rear bumpers, bigger side skirts, a large diffuser with incorporated dual pipes, oversized wheels and a sports suspension with a lower height than the SQ8.

The interior will be slightly reworked as well, with sports front seats, RS badges and new upholstery. Elsewhere, the RS Q8 should get the specific driving modes of other top-of-the-line models developed by Audi Sport, alongside the typical technology features found in the regular versions like the latest MMI infotainment system and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, both of them likely with some RS graphics and/or start screens.

In terms of pricing, the RS Q8 will be more expensive than the SQ8 that starts at €102,900 (equal to $111,440) in Germany, and sit closer to the €146,662 ($161,684) Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe.
