As you can see, the RS Q8 has received some updated carbon bodywork that gives the SUV a substantially more aggressive-looking face and according to Mansory also improves the aerodynamics and downforce.
Part of Mansory’s mods includes the deep black paint paired with red decorative stripes and accents. The red-and-black look continues inside, too, with red contrasting seams on all the leather. Other interior touches include a Mansory steering wheel and carbon-fibre trim.
The twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 also received some Mansory magic raising output up to 780 hp (574 kW) and 1,000 Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque. This was achieved with a simple ECU tune and a high-performance exhaust system.
That is a substantial power gain compared to the 591 hp (440 kW) and 799 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque it leaves the factory with and as a result, it can now sprint to 100 km/h (96 mph) in just 3.3 seconds and run to a top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph).
This package seems to be one of Mansory’s less wild offerings and actually works superbly well with the proportions and lines of the range-topping Q8.
