    • Audi to have RS version of every Q-Series SUV - 670 horsepower 2020 RS Q8 coming

      You can expect an RS version of every Q-Series SUV sold in the United States. That means the Q3, Q5, Q7, and Q8. The spy photos you see below are of the RS Q8 testing which is expected to come to the market as a 2020 model.


      The RS Q8 will set itself apart from the Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Huracan by offering a hybrid drivetrain with 670 horsepower.

      You will get a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 with 542 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque combined with a 134 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque electric motor. This output is sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic.

      670 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque sounds fun but how heavy is this thing going to be?

      What we know for sure is when it launches it will be the most powerful SUV ever offered by VAG.

        Not a whole ton of utility to it beyond offering more luggage space than an RS3.

        Pretty much RS3 on stilts...

        You must have not seen the 2020 Q3 interior!!! Bought my wife the Q3 and I like it (that's why I'm so broke lately also, paid w cash).

        I'm tempting RS Q3 for my next daily if they won't price it same with X3M. I can't believe guys paying 80k+ for X3m. Crazy!!!

        You're getting me wrong. I totally like it and prefer it to the X3M as a performance car.

        Just not a lot of utility.
