The Audi Q8 is one of the latest competitors in the premium mid-size SUV coupe segment. Indeed, it has only been in production since 2018. However, it has clearly proven from the very beginning that you don’t need to be a tenth-generation model to offer a killer look, top-notch performance, and the highest level of luxury. But for some, it still lacked an ultra-high performance version to really stand out. This was done with the recently launched RS Q8, now available in its 2021 model-year. Audi Blainville, your Audi dealer serving the area from the North Shore of Montreal to the Laurentians, tells you all about this latest and ultimate iteration of the big Audi SUV coupe, which goes by the name of 2021 Audi RS Q8!

An outstanding SUV coupe design with features magnified by the “Audi RS” treatment.

First of all, the exterior styling. On this point, you’ll find all the lines that are the strength of the Q8 lineup. Sharp headlights, huge Singleframe front grille, high ground clearance contrasting with the lower, sloping roofline, and a very expressive rear light strip: you’re sure to fall under the spell of this design!

But the 2021 RS Q8, like all of Audi’s RS vehicles, takes sportiness to a whole new level. With an even more athletic roof spoiler, vents above the front grille and under the tail lamps, and huge oval exhaust tips, the RS Q8 is a real beast to look at. So expect to be noticed around Blainville, but also everywhere else on the Quebec roads!

Supercar performance even in winter in the metropolitan area!

With this force of nature exterior, the 2021 RS Q8 had to bring it engine wise. But don’t worry, Audi’s high-performance SUV features exceptional technical specifications! In fact, sitting under the hood is a 4.0-litre turbo V8 unit generating 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

Combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain delivers incredible performance to this very special Q8. 0–100 km/h sprint done in only 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 250 km/h: these figures from Audi Canada show that the 2021 Audi RS Q8 is already on par with many of the so-called sports cars available from Blainville to the Laurentians!

But there’s still a big difference between them and the super-sport SUV from Ingolstadt. Indeed, the latter is equipped with the legendary and very efficient quattro all-wheel-drive as standard. Many sports cars, however, don’t even offer AWD systems as an option. This gives the SUV with the four rings an important edge over them: the ability to safely deliver all its capabilities, even in the middle of winter!

An interior focused on dynamic driving, but still extremely luxurious.

Finally, the interior, which is totally in line with the 2021 RS Q8’s ultra-sport intended use. And this can be seen first through the cabin design, which is very sleek. It successfully creates an atmosphere filled with calm and simplicity, allowing you to focus on what matters most: the road and the amazing driving experience. Add to that the perfect ergonomics of the controls, and you get a cockpit primarily designed for fast driving in Tremblant!

A large power sunroof, four-zone temperature control, heated front and rear seats, ventilated front seats, head-up display and a sound system from Bang & Olufsen: this amazing standard equipment will make each ride a unique and pleasant experience!
