- As the top-of-the-line SUV from Audi, the 2024 model year RS Q8 gets the best treatment from ABT Sportsline
- The ABT RSQ8-S package impresses with aerodynamic parts made of visible carbon fiber that highlights the sporty character of the SUV
The exterior upgrades come with 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 its distinctive sound. Inside the car, door sills and floor mats with RSQ8-S logo, a shift knob cover in visible carbon, an ABT start-stop switch cap and a steering wheel badge as well as embroidered front seats add more than a touch of individualisation to the luxurious interior.
Preferably the RSQ8-S runs on ABT High Performance HR wheels 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. If looking for a smaller size, customers can also opt to have the HR wheels in 22 inches.
ABT Sportsline not only offers a complete package, but also individual parts for the RS Q8, like a power upgrade (available for all model years, 2020-2024). 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*.
Though it doesn’t even have to be a power upgrade to upgrade the driving experience. With the also separately available ABT exhaust, consisting of rear muffler, middle muffler replacement pipe and end tips, the power delivery benefits, thanks to the integrated interference pipe and reduced exhaust backpressure.
A big wow factor on every standard RS Q8 are the ABT High Performance HR in 23 inches in their Glossy Black finish. Interior upgrades like the carbon shift knob cover, carbon coated dashboard and seat panels, entrance lights and the start-stop button are also available separately.
