The arrival of the RS Q8 is exciting enough and when tuners turn their attention to it, that excitement multiplies. MANHART and Wheelsandmore revealed their version of a hot RS Q8 and now it’s Lumma Design’s turn.
This southern German company has fitted the RS Q8 with this rather handsome bodykit. Lumma manufactures carbon component in-house and that includes the front and rear spoiler lips, wheel arch extensions, door panels, rear roof spoiler, and rear diffuser. But Lumma understands that you can’t have beauty without, as Jeremy Clarkson likes to say, POWER! Lumma’s performance enhancement module combined with their 4-pipe sports exhaust system boosts the RS Q8 to 705hp and 671ft-lb. No slouch here.
To round out their improvements, Lumma offers several different alloy wheel designs in various sizes. You can even choose the color.
The conversion can be done by Lumma themselves or selected dealers…I’m assuming in the EU. If you are so inclined, the Lumma CLR 8 RS will be available in the 4th quarter. We’ll see if other design companies jump onto the latest RS from Audi Sport.
