KUALA LUMPUR: PHS Automotive Malaysia has introduced the Audi RS Q8 to its model offering.

It’s the first ever full-size Audi SUV to bear the RS badge and retails for a princely sum of RM1,699,990. It is backed by 3 years free maintenance, 5 years unlimited mileage warranty and 5 years roadside assistance.

The technical specification includes highlights such as RS-specific adaptive air suspension, all-wheel steering, sport differential and active roll stabilisation.

The 4.0-litre biturbo V8 TFSI makes 592hp and 800Nm of torque between 2,200 and 4,500 rpm. The SUV accelerates from 0 to 100kph in just 3.8 seconds. Top speed is 305kph.

Its 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 ignition sequence also ensures a voluminous sound further enhanced by the RS sport exhaust system with black oval tailpipes. The engine sound can be modified via the Audi drive select system.

The power of the V8 TFSI flows to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system via the standard eight-speed tiptronic.

During dynamic cornering, the quattro sport differential distributes drive torque between the rear wheels as required. This active torque vectoring is said to improve traction, stability and dynamics.

The RS-specific adaptive air suspension sport with controlled damping was designed to allow the RS Q8 to travel everywhere like the Range Rover.

Its RS-specific damper tuning allows for a particularly broad spread between a setup biased toward comfort and an extremely sporty setup.

Body roll during fast cornering is minimised, thanks to the electromechanical active roll stabilisation (EAWS) system.

The Audi drive select dynamic handling system allows the driver to control engine and transmission management, steering boost, the air suspension, all-wheel steering, engine sound and the characteristic of the automatic air conditioning.

Eight profiles are available: comfort, auto, dynamic, efficiency, allroad, offroad, and the individually configurable RS-specific modes RS1 and RS2, directly accessible via the “RS-MODE” button on the steering wheel.

The RS Q8 comes standard with 23-inch aluminium wheels in a 5 Y-spoke rotor design.

Behind the large wheels is an RS brake system with internally vented composite discs (420 mm) up front, 370 mm at the rear, with ceramic brakes in red as standard.

With its imposing octagonal Singleframe, the RS-specific radiator in carbon and honeycomb grille in high gloss black, the RS Q8 sports a self-confident face.

The sloping roofline flows into the forward-canted D-pillars and rests against the quattro blisters above the wheel arches. RS-specific trim strips in the body colour widen the body by 10 mm up front and 5 mm in the rear, providing space for the more generous track.

An RS roof edge spoiler provides a striking finish at the top and provides downforce on the rear axle for even balance at high speeds.

Black Audi rings and RS logos at the front and rear complete the aggressive design.

The tinted RS HD Matrix LED headlights come with three-dimensional daytime running lights signature with a digital character, similar to the LED tail lights.

A light strip backed by a high-gloss black surface joins the rear lights, further emphasising the wide stance.

The RS Matrix LED headlights and the rear lights include dynamic turn signals and are showcased by an expressive RS-specific animation when the car is locked or unlocked.

The interior of the RS Q8 features a deliberately clean design, while a slim instrument panel and strongly horizontal line design convey a feeling of spaciousness.

The central element in the cockpit is the top MMI touch response display.

Special RS displays in the Audi virtual cockpit and MMI display provide information on tyre pressure, torque, output, temperature, lap times and g-forces.

The head-up display also offers several RS-specific graphics.

The RS sports seats come in perforated Valcona leather with honeycomb stitching with ventilation and massage function, while other RS interior elements include grey contrasting stitching on the knee pads, steering wheel rim, floor mats, and the edges of the seat belts.

Completing the look are strategically placed RS logos on the steering wheel and illuminated front door sill trim.

Nappa leather wraps the SUV’s selector lever knob and door armrest.

The RS Q8 also boasts everyday usability in the rear. With the seat backrests folded, the luggage compartment under the power rear hatch holds up to 1,755 litres.

The range of assist systems in the RS Q8 include adaptive cruise assist, efficiency assist, intersection assist, lane change warning and 360-degree cameras.

The RS Q8 is available in a choice of nine colours: one solid paint finish and eight metallic or pearl effect shades, with carbon exterior mirror housing, and 11 Audi Exclusive colours.

Bookings can be made at all Audi Centres at Setia Alam, Glenmarie and Juru.
