Even the Lamborghini Urus will feel inferior standing next to its sharp-dressed German cousin

The RSQ8 is one of the hottest Audi models to receive aftermarket treatments. We’ve seen Mansory, Lumma Design, and ABT Sportsline come up with their iterations of this sporty SUV. While most folks would opt for models from these aftermarket companies, some prefer a mix-and-match approach. One such example is this insane build that was uploaded on Auditography’s YouTube channel. It looks radical and is one of the loudest RSQ8s to have graced our planet. And, did I mention it makes over 750 horses?

This Is An Atrocious Build

This Audi RSQ8 is finished in Nardo Grey shade and features carbon options all around. There are no chrome bits anywhere on the body and that brings out its sporty side. The SUV rides on low-profile tires wrapped around 23-inch wheels. The braking duties are taken over by 17.3-inch discs with red calipers.

At the rear, you can see new exhaust pipes that pop and crackle like fireworks. The owner has equipped this beast with a new 100-cells sportcat exhaust system and has removed all the filters and restrictors. The grunts and blurbs will surely make you go weak in the knees. Finally, it also comes with an adjustable air suspension.

It Makes Over 160 Horses and Pound-Feet Of Torque More

A stock RSQ8 in the Netherlands comes with a 4.0-liter, V-8 engine with mid-hybrid technology that makes 591 ponies and 590 pound-feet of twist. It comes with an eight-speed gearbox and the famed Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The standard RSQ8 takes 3.8 seconds to sprint to 62 mph and has a top speed of 155 mph.

This example, however, comes with a Stage 2 tuning. This means it makes 760 horses and 782 pound-feet of twist.

Around six-tenths of a second are shaved off from its 0-62 mph time as the SUV takes between three and 3.2 seconds to touch the milestone. Even the speed governor is eradicated and increases the top speed to 205 mph.

Fun fact – The Audi RSQ8 holds the record for being the fastest stock SUV at the Nurburgring, taking 7 minutes and 42.2 seconds to run the 12.94-mile lap.

It beat the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S by almost seven seconds to replace it at the apex position that the German SUV held for almost a year.

What’s more impressive than the specs of this RSQ8 is the video that Auditography has recorded, edited, and uploaded. Check it out and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
