Even sitting still, the Audi RS Q8 has an undeniable presence that instantly identifies the Audi RS Q8 as something very special. With its honeycomb radiator grille and large air intakes in gloss black and the dark tinted HD Matrix LED headlights with dynamic indicators, the front end – or face of the RS Q8 – leaves no doubt as to the vehicle’s enormous performance potential and makes a strong, yet restrained comment.
The overall styling is muscular and purposeful, yet with an undeniable elegance. The guards have been massaged out an additional 10mm in homage to the vehicle’s quattro heritage but also to accommodate the 23-inch alloy wheels. While on the rear, the bold RS-specific diffuser and distinctive RS oval exhaust pipes add to the overall impact of the RS Q8 as well as serving their own practical purpose. Likewise, the roof-edge spoiler adds another understated design element while also serving to provide downforce as speeds increase.
