Emphatically sporty, extremely dynamic and luxurious – these qualities ensure the Audi Q8 sport concept makes a strong impression in the full-size category. The car stands for maximum prestige, resolute sportiness and clearly visible technology in all areas. A particularly groundbreaking aspect is the concept car’s highly efficient drive concept. The combination of a 3.0 TFSI six-cylinder engine with a mild hybrid system and an electric powered compressor is a world first. The result: The Q8 sport concept proves itself a very talented all-round performer. With its 350 kW (476 hp) and 700 Nm of torque, the car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in just 4.7 seconds – and reaches a top speed of 275 km/h (170.9 mph). And its cruising range of over 1,200 kilometers (745.6 mi) makes it ideally suited for long-distance driving. The Audi Q8 sport concept’s visual effect is accentuated by its characteristic air deflectors. The impressive front is dominated by an imposing octagonal Singleframe with honeycomb insert, flanked by two large air inlets.
Compared to the Q8 concept that Audi presented in Detroit, another 12 millimeters (0.5 in) have been added to the width of the wheel arches. Topping off the vehicle’s sporty personality are a long roof edge spoiler, an aluminum diffuser and the exhaust system’s distinctive oval tailpipes. The interior of the Audi Q8 sport concept exudes pure luxury – with expansive lines, sophisticated materials and abundant space. The new control concept relies on large touchscreens, with finishing touches in the form of an enhanced Audi virtual cockpit and a contact analog head-up display. The display uses intelligent augmented reality technology that merges the real and virtual worlds.
