The results are polarizing, to say the least.
The Audi RS Q8 is a fantastically fast machine. Thanks to a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 developing 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, the RS Q8 can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and reach 155 mph (although a top speed of 190 can be unlocked by fitting ceramic brakes). While all that sounds like more than enough performance for an SUV, there will always be those who want more, and Mansory is always willing to oblige. The results are generally polarizing, but once in a while, Mansory makes a good-looking car. This is not one of those times.
As you can see, the appearance of the RS Q8 has been dramatically altered with various carbon parts, including the front splitter, side skirts, and rear apron. There's also a full carbon hood, new spoilers, various red accents throughout, and 23-inch Mansory YN.5 forged wheels.
The interior hasn't been left alone either, with Mansory fitting numerous carbon trim accents along with customized quilted leather seats and a carbon steering wheel with the Mansory logo. Red contrast stitching carries the theme of the exterior over to the cabin. However, it's not all show and no go, as Mansory has truly enhanced that 4.0-liter V8.
Power is now rated at a whopping 769 hp with 737 lb-ft of torque. As a result, the RS Q8 now gets from 0-62 mph in a scant 3.3 seconds, with top speed increased to almost 199 mph. This is the second Audi offering from Mansory, following on from the company's RS6 project that was similarly attention-grabbing. There's no word on what this conversion costs, but if you want to hurt people's eyes, it'd certainly be cheaper to force them to stare into the sun. Of course, art is subjective, but we're not sure that this abomination can be considered as such.
