Audi says that the biturbo V8 in the new RS Q8 combines maximum performance and high efficiency. Its mild-hybrid system (MHEV) is based on 48-volt main electrical system which would help the RS Q8 recover up to 12 kw of power and the vehicle would be able to cruise for 40 seconds with its engine off.

The RS Q8 will also come equipped with adaptive suspension sport with control dampening. This, according to Audi, will help the SUV tackle racetracks as well as rough roads with equal ease on the 22-inch aluminium wheels.

In terms of design, the RS Q8 will feature an octagonal singleframe, the RS-specific radiator grille and a gloss black RS honeycomb grille. The sloping roofline flows into the forward-canted D-pillars and rests against the quattro blisters above the wheel arches. The car will be available in nine colour options.

On the inside, Audi has opted to keep a neat profile to accentuate the feeling of space. The sport seats come in black pearl Nappa leather/Alcantara and a special RS display will put out all necessary information like tire pressure, torque, output, temperature, lap times and g-forces.

While there is no word on if and when the RS Q8 will reach India, Audi is gearing up to launch Q8 here on January 15.
