Under the hood, it is plonked with a V8 twin-turbo 4.0TFSI engine that's known to deliver 600 hp which is backed-up by a staggering 800 Nm of torque. This engine is available with a 48-volt mild-hybrid technology and comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. It transmits power across all 4 wheels via Quattro all-wheel-drive, on the top of it, the RS Q8 also sports all-wheel-steering. All this comes together to push this mammoth of an SUV across the 0-100 kmph line in just 3.8 seconds. And without the speed limiter, it can go up to a top speed of 305 kmph which is simply unbelievable for a car of its size.
