Audi RS Q8: A Panamera In Disguise?

By  | 

Now that the Audi Q8 has been released, all eyes are on the Audi RS Q8 model. Initial reports suggest that Audi will be fitting it with the same engine they offered the Lamborghini Urus now new reports are now suggesting that they are actually looking at the Porsche engine.

According to Autocar, the upcoming Audi RS Q8 will be coming in with the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid powertrain. On the Panamera, the engine is capable of offering about 671hp and 627lb ft of torque.

If that is true, the Audi RS Q8 will be coming in as the most potent crossover from Volkswagen Group since the Urus is only capable of offering about 641hp right now. Of course, we won’t know for sure until Audi announces the vehicle but the Audi RS Q8 is really turning out to be the one to watch out for.
