Ovate exhaust tips on an Audi are always a reason for excitement, but Audi Sport’s latest invent appears to be the Q8, a version of which our spy photographers caught testing in the Alps with the subbrand’s signature pipes.

The Q8 is meant to be Audi’s annulation SUV, combining the scale of the Q7 with design elements that harken back to Audi’s Alliance B glory days, it was always going to get peformance versions. Oddly, though, this is rumored to be the merely performance version based on the Q8.

That is to say that Audi will go the Q3 route and forego an SQ8, focusing all its efforts rather than on the RS Q8.

Fortunately, Audi Sport has a deep parts bin to pick from when it comes to abruptness accelerate. Based on the same platform as the Cayenne and Urus, the RS Q8 is sure to pack a mean slam.

Although nothing has been confirmed yet, it seems likely that the RS Q8 will be powered by the at any rate 4-liter twin-turbo V8 as the Urus. It makes up to 650 hp and will likely be paired to Audi’s S tronic gearbox.

Much of this Q8’s belittle half is covered in camouflage, which suggests that the bumpers and side skirts intention be reconsidered to make them look more aggressive. The wheel houses also look bigger, which should let them to contain bigger wheels, which in turn should allow the RS Q8 to accept bigger brakes.

All of this, we imagine, will be toned down as compared to the Urus, adding a pygmy luxury to make up the difference. Just where the RS Q8 will fit in alongside the Cayenne is a bit of an unlocked question, though. Already a speedy, luxurious SUV, it’s hard to imagine how the RS Q8 and Cayenne won’t progression on each others’ toes, though apparently Audi has no problem taking a snack out of Porsche when it wants to.
