Clear contours and athletic and tight surfaces convey the power of the Audi RS Q8**, even when parked. Numerous RS design details highlight the independent character of the new top model of the RS family. Its impressive and self-confident face exhibits an imposing octagonal Singleframe with an RS-specific radiator grille and a black, glossy RS honeycomb grille. This, combined with the large side air inlets and the blade in high gloss black, perfectly highlights the athletic character of the 5,012 mm (197.3 in) long SUV coupé from Audi Sport.
The body of the RS Q8** looks well-toned from every viewing angle. This impression is enhanced by the visually encircling RS sill edges, which are designed in Manhattan gray as standard. For a more generous track width, the RS-specific strips in the body color widen the body at the front wheel arches by 10 mm (0.4 in) and at the rear by 5 mm (0.2 in). The large wheels, optionally with a rim diameter of up to 23 inches, additionally emphasize the striking appearance of the RS Q8.
The roof visually spans low over the vehicle body thanks to the frameless doors. The coupé-style roofline slopes and flows into the forward-canted D-pillars and rests against the quattro blisters above the wheel arches. The characteristic rear light strip and the RS roof edge spoiler give an impressive finish. The latter provides downforce on the rear axle for even balance, even at high speeds. The RS-specific rear apron with a diffuser clip in high gloss black and the RS-typical oval tailpipes add a further sporty touch at the rear.
Customers can equip their RS Q8** according to their personal taste. A high variance and a wide range of customization options thus provide the greatest possible creative freedom. The new Audi RS Q8 is available in a choice of nine colors: one solid paint finish and eight metallic or pearl effect shades. The exterior mirror housings come in black as standard with body color, aluminum or carbon available as options. The aluminum and carbon styling packages set precise accents at the radiator grille, blades, diffuser clip and, for carbon, at the rear light strip. In combination with the black and carbon styling packages, the Audi rings and RS logos at the front and rear are optionally available in black. The Audi exclusive range offers numerous other customization options.
