      After daring preparations of several Audi models, ABT Sportsline returns to the fore with a new creation based on the Audi Q8.

      Unlike their previous creations, ABT Sportsline shows an unusual discretion regarding the design of their baby. If, in normal times, the big shields and the fins are current currency, this Audi Q8 is almost normal. Almost as the original wheels have been modified to incorporate new rims 22 inches.

      Based on the 50 TDI engine, the Audi Q8 by ABT Sportsline receives a reprogramming of its engine via the integration of an ABT Power Boost unit. As a result, the 3.0-liter V6 engine, which develops 286 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque, now offers 330 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. ABT does not specify the performance of the car. For the moment, the Q8 is only offered with a single engine in the French catalog. Later, a 340 horsepower V6 3.0 TFSI petrol engine will support the proposed lineup.

      Two sports variants are also planned. The Audi SQ8 is expected to ship the Audi SQ7's 4.0 liter bi-TDI V8 to up to 435 horsepower and more than 900 Nm of torque. Audi Sport also provides an RS Q8 variant. This model, which should exceed 600 horsepower in order to tackle the Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupé 63 S and BMW X6 M, should be driven by a V8 4.0-liter twin turbo block completed with a hybridization system lightweight.
