Audi RS Q8 boosted to 743 kW with tuner’s crazy ‘Goliath’ package!

German firm Wheelsandmore has released a new tuning package for Audi RS Q8, handing Ingolstadt’s biggest performance SUV a hefty increase in power and a new set of wheels.

The tuner has developed five tuning packages for the RS Q8’s twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8, with the fifth and most extreme increasing the standard outputs of 441 kW and 800 N.m of torque to whopping 743 kW and 1 250 N.m.

To achieve this huge figure, Wheelsandmore performed an engine control unit upgrade and replaced the entire turbocharging system (and removed the particulate filter). In addition, a new air-filter kit and modified intake manifold have been added for improved airflow, while a flap-controlled exhaust system by Capristo provides additional volume.

Optional alterations to the chassis include a LowMaXX air-suspension control unit, which allows the owner to adjust the ride height via a smartphone app, along with a set of 24-inch G-Logic three-piece forged alloy wheels.

The price for the stage 5 package (it offers a similar kit for the RS6 Avant)? Well, that’ll put you back some €49 900, which translates to around R950 000 at the current exchange rate…
