Not content with just tuning the RS 6 Avant, Wheelsandmore have turned to the RS Q8. Much like the RS 6 Avant, they offer upgrades for wheels, exhaust, and engine and air suspension software. And just like the Avant, Wheelsandmore claims 1010hp through these upgrades.
Aside from the color, the wheels grab the eye and they should since they’re a massive 24 inches. The one piece G-Logic VA wheels are 10.5×24 with 295/30/24 Vredestein tires while the HA style are 12.5 x 24 wearing 355/25/24 tires. Didn’t I say they were massive? You can also get them in any color.
If you want go with the show, they offer performance from Stage 1-5 for the RS Q8 (they also offer tuning if you are buying the ‘lesser’ SQ8). Stage 5 is the one you want as it boost the RS Q8 to 1010hp and 922 ft-lb. It includes the Flap exhaust system with catalytic converter pipes, F1 air filter kit, changed intake paths, modified intake manifolds, and a turbocharger upgrade. It’ll also run you €49,000.
As mentioned before, if the RS Q8 with upgrades is too radical for you, Wheelsandmore also offer upgrades for the SQ8 but I think I know which one to go for…if I had the money and an RS Q8.
