Mansory has taken it upon itself to add supercar levels of performance to the Audi RS Q8 by means of a comprehensive engine upgrade. In addition, the high-performance SUV has been handed more extreme aerodynamics as well as some interior refinements.

Using a similar recipe to that of its Audi RS6 build, the tuner has fitted the twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 with a modified ECU unit and a high-performance exhaust system. This pushes the RS Q8’s standard outputs of 441 kW and 800 N.m of torque up to 574 kW and a pleasingly round 1 000 N.m. The results, says Mansory, is a 0-100 km/h time of just 3,3 seconds and a top speed of 330 km/h.

In order to add presence out on the road, Mansory has fitted front, side and rear carbon-fibre body parts, with the carbon weave exposed. The rest of the SUV sports a deep black paint finish along with red detailing. A set of 23-inch Mansory YN.5 forged alloy wheels is also included.

In the cabin, the RS Q8 gains black and red accents, additional carbon-fibre trim and a Mansory steering wheel finished in a mix of leather and carbon.
