With roughly 590hp and ft-lbs of torque right out of the box, Audi’s twin-turbocharged RS Q8 is already an incredibly potent and competent machine in its stock form. Nonetheless, ABT Sportsline has set its sights on the luxury German SUV, bestowing the six-figure stocker with a host of cosmetic and performance upgrades.

Christened the “ABT RSQ8-R,” the hopped-up Audi’s being built to celebrate ABT’s 125th anniversary, and as such, is limited to 125 examples. A revised control unit, special intercooler, and high-performance stainless steel quad exhaust system help to bolster the SUV’s power output up to 740 horses and 678.5ft-lbs of torque, while also shaving nearly half-a-second off of the stock RS Q8’s 3.8 second 0-60mph time and bumping its top speed up to over 195mph. Riding on a set of 23” flow-forming ABT High-Performance HR wheels, the R-spec RS Q8 also gets a rear spoiler and full aero kit that includes a generous number of carbon fiber pieces. An electronic suspension lowering kit provides even more track-ready performance, too. Inside, the Audi gets a bespoke interior package with one-off seats, floor-mats, and race steering wheel. Pricing on ABT Sportsline’s 2021 Audi RSQ8-R hasn’t been revealed, though more info’s available at the link below.
