Badge engineering is an American term to describe the same car sold under another name at a different dealer. Although the concept began here, it seems alive and well in Europe. We’re not discouraging this practice because it allows amazing models to target different clientele. If you don’t need the aggressive looks and brutal power of the Lamborghini Urus, the new 2021 Audi RS Q8 is a twin-turbo super SUV.
As a larger version of the Q7, it offers three rows of adult-size seating. It shares the solid foundations of the Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, and the Volkswagen Toureg. The Lamborghini 4.0L V8 has been de-tuned to offer 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. When ordered with ceramic brakes, the top speed is limited to only 190 mph. Impressive accolades include 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, and lapping the ‘Ring in 7:42.2.
Standard equipment includes active air suspension, active roll control, all-wheel steering, quattro AWD, and Valcona leather interior. All this can be yours for $113,000. Click the button below to find our dealer near you and stay with us for all your Audi news.
P.S. They built this engine to run as smoothly as possible, so it uses a firing order of 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8, making it sound identical to every Ford 351 & 4.6 V8
