A made-to-order car, the Q8 is priced at 1.33 crore (ex showroom) and has a plethora of customization options. Kohli too has suggested a number of customizations to his Q8 but the details of these are not known. Instead, Kohli was asked at the launch event where and with whom he would like to go for a spin in the Q8. "If we get the time then obviously Anushka (Sharma) and the Sea Link in Mumbai would be great," he had said.
