MANHART Gives the Audi RS Q8 a 227-HP Upgrade & a Cyberpunk Interior

The Audi RS Q8 is one of the most premium offerings the German automaker has in its lineup. It is a gorgeous SUV that has aggressive power to boot, sporting a chic yet rugged design, 591HP, 590lb-ft of torque, and an impressive 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds. For those not wanting to buy an ultra-premium SUV like a Rolls-Royce Cullinan or Lamborghini Urus, it’s a fantastic alternative. Never satisfied with merely being fantastic, the folks at MANHART saw the Audi RS Q8 as a blank canvas that could transcend even its ultra-exclusive counterparts, so they did what aftermarket tuners do best and created a limited-edition beast, the MANHART RQ 800.

Never a shop to give less than 1,000% effort, the designers and engineers at MANHART poured their collective creativity into the Audi RS Q8 and made a great car even greater. Performance-wise, they outfitted the 4.0L V8 with a MANHART turbo performance kit, turbo upgrade, intercooler, transmission upgrade, and an Eventuri carbon intake to boost its performance to an astounding 818HP and 774lb-ft of torque. The MANHART RQ800 also benefits from a MANHART stainless steel exhaust system with flap function. Moreover, the MANHART upgrades resulted in a handsome makeover for the RQ 800 in the form of a MANHART decor set featuring red trim on the SUV’s fascias, rear diffuser, and side mirrors. It also sports a set of stylish MANHART in-house Classic Line rims that sport the same red trim.

Inside, the MANHART RQ 800 features a set of MANHART floor mats and red accent lights, which evokes a futuristic, cyberpunk feel. MANHART hasn’t announced pricing information for the RQ 800, but you can request pricing information on its website if you’re so inclined to purchase this tuned-up beast of an SUV.
