The Audi RS Q8 needs more power, said no one ever – or did they? Wheelsandmore at least did, and the performance SUV can be had with jaw-dropping amounts of power, as the tuner has endowed it with Bugatti Veyron 16.4-rivaling levels of output and torque.
Priced at a whopping €41,933 in Germany (just for the tuning package, of course, not with the car…) which equals to $47,029 at current exchange rates and includes installation, Stage 5 brings a whole lot of extra kit that unleashes a massive 996 HP (1,010 PS / 743 kW) and 922 lb-ft (1,250 Nm) of torque.
In return for €33,529 ($37,604), Wheelsandmore will sell you the Stage 4 that comes with 951 HP (965 PS / 710 kW) and 922 lb-ft (1,250 Nm). Stage 3 is priced at a more decent €12,521 ($14,043), compared to the aforementioned kits anyway, and brings 775 HP (786 PS / 578 kW) and 782 lb-ft (1,060 Nm).
You could have Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk levels of power in the RS Q8 with the Stage 2 package, which costs €7,688 ($8,622) and lifts the numbers to 715 HP (725 PS / 533 kW) and 686 lb-ft (930 Nm). Stage 1, on the other hand, costa a more modest €2,100 ($2,355) and brings 700 HP (710 PS / 522 kW) and 679 lb-ft (920 Nm).
Without the tuner’s intervention, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 pumps out 591 HP (599 PS / 441 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm). It’s matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission that channels the output to the rear-biased quattro all-wheel drive system, enabling a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint of 3.7 seconds and a 190 mph (205 km/h) top speed.
For an extra €1,680 ($1,884), you could get the LowMaXX system that can lower the original air suspension of the car via a smartphone app.
Finally, the last upgrade of the RS Q8 available from Wheelsandmore takes care of, well, its wheels, which measure 10.5×24 inches at the front and 12.5×24 inches at the rear, and come with 295/30 and 355/25 Vredestein tires respectively.
