Audi RSQ8

The soon-to-be-revealed Audi RS Q8 is already taking no prisoners as it has become the fastest SUV around the Nurburgring. Watch the run below!

First reported by British publication Autocar, the Audi RS Q8 has become the fastest SUV around the Nurburgring. With a time of 7min 42.253, the Audi RS Q8 has beaten the previous record holder, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S, by 12 seconds. That's quite an achievement for a big family SUV. 

For some context, that time is as fast as a Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 SuperVeloce and a Porsche Cayman GT4 (981). Under the bonnet of the Audi RS Q8 is the trusty 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 which produces 441 kW and 800 Nm. Power goes to all 4 wheels via an 8-speed transmission and 0-100 kph is said to be dispatched in 3.8 seconds. 

The Audi RS Q8 should be revealed in November 2019.
