Our spy photographers have had plenty of luck shooting the flagship Audi Q8 SUV in trials at the Nürburgring. In the latest encounter, the exterior reveals no more than in previous shots, as you’ll see compared with the previous exterior gallery below. What’s new this time: We get a look inside.
Seen with the doors open, it appears the Q8 will get frameless windows.
The photographer also managed to get a glimpse into a SQ7-based Q8 to view the new controls and displays. That is, fewer controls, more displays.
The Q8 is set to share not just the platform but also the engines with the Q7 with one possible exception. There’s a rumor that the possible RS Q8 could get a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 delivering over 600 horsepower. – the same engine said to be destined for its Italian cousin, the Lamborghini Urus.
The Audi Q8 is expected to go on sale in 2018.
