The new Audi RS Q8 (consolidated fuel utilization in l/100 km: 12.1 (19.4 US mpg); joined CO2 outflows in g/km*: 277 – 276 (445.8 – 444.2 g/mi)) is the top model in the Q product offering. It consolidates the intensity of an RS model with the class of a top-notch car and the adaptability of an SUV. The new Audi RS Q8 will show up at businesses in Germany and other European nations during the main quarter of 2020. Costs in Germany for the energetic SUV car start at 127,000 euros.
“Without precedent for the 25-year history of Audi RS models, we are putting an enormous SUV car with the qualities of a genuine elite games vehicle out and about,” said Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “With its Biturbo V8 fuel motor, the Audi RS Q8** is the renowned initiate of the RS model family.”
Greatest force and high productivity: the motor:
441 kW (600 hp), 800 Nm (590.0 lb-ft) of torque somewhere in the range of 2,200 and 4,500 rpm – the 4.0 liter V8 in the new Audi RS Q8 (joined fuel utilization in l/100 km: 12.1 (19.4 US mpg); consolidated CO2 discharges in g/km*: 277 – 276 (445.8 – 444.2 g/mi)) conveys great RS execution. The turbocharged fuel motor with direct infusion quickens the huge SUV roadster from Audi Sport GmbH from 0 to 100 km/h (62.0 mph) in simply 3.8 seconds and to 200 km/h (124.3 mph) in 13.7 seconds. The 250 km/h (155.3 mph) top speed is electronically represented. With the discretionary unique bundle, top speed is 305 km/h (189.5 mph).
Its 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 start grouping gives the 4.0 TFSI a sportily voluminous sound. As is run of the mill for the RS models, the double fumes framework includes a noteworthy oval tailpipe on each side. The driver can impact the motor’s sound by means of the Audi drive select framework. The discretionary RS sport exhaust framework with dark tailpipe trims offers a considerably sportier sound.
The Biturbo V8 in the new Audi RS Q8** consolidates the most extreme execution and high proficiency. Its gentle mixture framework (MHEV) depends on a 48-volt primary electrical framework. The center of the MHEV is a belt alternator-starter associated with the driving rod. During deceleration and slowing down, it can recoup up to 12 kW of intensity and store it in the smaller lithium-particle battery.
On the off chance that the driver takes their foot off the quickening agent at a speed somewhere in the range of 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 to 99.4 mph), the drive the executives chooses one of two arrangements relying upon the driving circumstance and the ebb and flow setting of the Audi drive select powerful dealing with the framework: The new Audi RS Q8** recovers or drifts for as long as 40 seconds with the motor off. The belt alternator starter turns over the motor inside portions of a second when the quickening agent is activated.
MHEV innovation considers start/stop activity at a speed of up to 22 km/h (13.7 mph). The mellow half breed framework is associated with the camera sensors for considerably more noteworthy proficiency. At the point when halted, the motor fires up while the brake pedal is as yet discouraged when the front camera identifies that the vehicle before the new Audi RS Q8** starts to move.
The transaction of the MHEV parts improves ride comfort and furthermore can possibly lessen fuel utilization in regular driving by as much as 0.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
Another proficiency module installed is the chamber on request (COD) framework. At low to moderate burden and rpm in the upper riggings, it deactivates chambers 2, 3, 5, and 8 by turning off fuel infusion and start and shutting the admission and fumes valves. The exchanging procedure takes just milliseconds and is for all intents and purposes impalpable in the vehicle.
During four-chamber activity, the working purposes of the dynamic chambers move to higher loads and guide focuses with high productivity, while the deactivated chambers run generally misfortune free as gas springs. They are reactivated promptly when the driver presses the quickening agent.
The intensity of the 4.0 TFSI streams to the Quattro perpetual all-wheel-drive framework through the standard eight-speed Tiptronic. Arranged as a planetary apparatus, the simply mechanical focus differential regularly appropriates the drive power in a 40:60 proportion to the front and back axles. In case of a slip, more drive torque consequently goes to the hub with the better footing. Up to 70 percent can be coordinated to the front haggles to 85 percent to the back wheels.
Wheel-particular torque control culminates in the protected and spry treatment of the new Audi RS Q8**. During dynamic cornering, the discretionary Quattro sport differential disperses drive torque between the back wheels as required. This dynamic torque vectoring improves footing, soundness, and elements.

The discretionary electromechanical dynamic move adjustment (EAWS) limits body move during quick cornering. There is a conservative electric engine between the two parts of the stabilizer on every one of the two axles. When driving straight ahead, the two parts of the stabilizer are decoupled, which diminishes body development on lopsided streets and furthermore expands ride comfort.
During cornering, be that as it may, the attention is on ideal move pay. The parts of the stabilizer are bent in inverse ways, which altogether decreases vehicle lean while cornering. The electromechanical dynamic fold adjustment is coordinated into the 48-volt principle electrical framework and fills in as a recovering framework. It can even recuperate power by means of the electric engines and along these lines feed electrical vitality back to the battery.
With the discretionary unique bundle in addition to the electronically administered top speed of 305 km/h (189.5 mph), clients likewise get a skeleton intended for most extreme energy. This incorporates electromechanical dynamic move adjustment, the Quattro sport differential, and the RS clay slowing mechanism.
The standard all-wheel controlling moves the back wheels through a high-torque electric axle drive and two-track poles. At low speeds, the back wheels go up to 5 degrees inverse the bearing of the front wheels for more noteworthy deftness. At high speeds, they go up to 1.5 degrees a similar way as the front wheels to improve soundness during fast track changes.
With variable ground leeway, short shades, Quattro perpetual all-wheel drive, and slope plummet control, the new Audi RS Q8** can continue tranquility and unquestionably when cleared streets end.
The driver can absolutely impact the character of the RS Q8** by means of the Audi drive select unique dealing with the framework.
