The most powerful SUV ever built by Audi is the 2025 RS Q8 Performance.

The all-new 2025 Audi RS Q8 Performance is the brand’s most powerful and fastest SUV ever. The automobile’s top-of-the-line model features 632 horsepower and supercar performance. The Ingolstadt-based company has released the all-new RS Q8 in two variants: the Standard, which is an upgraded RS Q8, and the Performance, which is all-new to the lineup nine months after Audi launched the facelifted Q8.

The most powerful series production ICE engine ever built by Audi powers both. This will be the brand’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, which can reach a top speed of 155 miles per hour (250 kilometers per hour) in 3.8 seconds and produces 592 horsepower (600 metric horsepower) and 590 pound-feet (850 Newton-meters) of torque in the base version.

Audi has created a performance option for individuals who feel that this is insufficient. This V8 generates 632 horsepower (640 metric horsepower) and 627 pound-feet (850 Newton-meters), which is distributed to all four sides through Audi’s permanent Quattro all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox.

If these figures sound familiar to you, you may recognize them from Lamborghini’s Urus. These specifications allow the super-SUV to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, with the speedometer needle reaching 174 mph. Launch control is installed in the all-new RS Q8.

Both versions have a mechanical center differential as standard, all-wheel steering, and adaptive air suspension, which allows the ride height to be adjusted by up to 3.5 inches (90 millimeters). They also have active roll stabilization which is electromechanical. To reduce body roll and tilt in corners, the system disconnects the two halves and is powered by two small electric motors that are located between the two valves of the stabilizer.

The Performance version, which is the highest model in the range (note the capital P in the name because that’s what Audi does) broke the track record at the Nurburgring, completing a lap in 7 minutes and 7.36 seconds.

Stopping power comes from larger front discs measuring 420 millimeters (16.5 in) with ten-piston calipers and rear discs measuring 370 millimeters (14.5 in). Nevertheless, 23-inch Y-spoke light-alloy wheels and front and rear carbon ceramic discs are also available as options for the Performance Edition. Both variants are equipped with 22-inch ten-spike light alloy wheels as standard.

A modern color scheme is available for selection by customers. Ascari Blue, Chili Red, and Sakhir Gold are the three new metallic color options available. The rear diffusor, window trimming, front splitter, and side mirrors are all gloss black on the base model. For the RS Q8 Performance, Audi prepared matte carbon parts and a matte grey diffusor. Surrounding the diffusor are two oval tailpipes.

The huge Singleframe reimagined honeycomb grille, in which each honeycomb cell is now three-dimensional, is located at the other end.

Meanwhile, the RS Q8’s interior is offered in three different design packages: red, gray, and blue. Sports seats with perforated leather upholstery, Dinamica microfibre made from recycled PET fibers, and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel are all options.

With manual light indicators, Audi’s 12.3-inch virtual cockpit provides the driver with all the information they need. It signals gear shifts by changing the RPM display from green to yellow and red and flashing in conjunction with the motor racing system.

In the European market, the Audi RS Q8 has a base price of 141,900 euros or $152,394, while the top-of-the-line RS Q8 Performance costs 155,700 euros or $167,215.
