Audi RS Q8 is the fastest SUV to lap the Nurburgring

The Audi RS Q8 is yet to go on sale but it’s already making headlines.

The RS Q8 is the high-performance version of the Q8. It’s also safe to say that the RS Q8 is now the fastest production SUV to lap the Nurburgring.

The Audi RS Q8 has set a new lap record of the Green Hell beating the previous best by more than 7 seconds. It completed the lap in 7 min 42.253 seconds, beating the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63S’ lap time of 7 min 49.3 seconds.

As expected, the RS Q8 will feature a more sporty exterior. It has RS bumpers with large vents at the front and a diffuser at the rear. It is also expected to get a set of sporty alloy wheels. Powering the behemoth of an SUV is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine, which could churn out somewhere around 592 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

The Audi RS Q8 will make its debut on November 20 and is likely to be presented at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.
