ABT Sportsline Audi SQ8 Looks Menacing – Just In Time For Halloween

ABT Sportsline has given the Audi SQ8 a once-over treatment that lowers the ride height and raises the horsepower.

You’ve likely noticed the new Audi Q8 already. From a distance or up-close, this is a luxury SUV that looks like no other. In North America, for the moment, we only get the turbocharged 335-horsepower 3.0-litre V6 but other markets are privy to an SQ8. Said Audi SQ8 is powered by a twin-turbocharged diesel V8 which delivers 429-horsepower and 664 lb.-ft. of torque. Through ABT Sportsline wizardry, the SQ8 now delivers more of everything.

ABT is a very well-known German tuner that has had its way with many Volkswagen Auto Group vehicles over the years, from Seat, Skoda and Lamborghini, not mention just about every hot Audi, from the S1 to the R8.

For this round, ABT Sportsline has tackled the SQ8 and thanks to their knowhow, they’ve managed to extract a full 513-horsepower and 715 lb.-ft. of torque from the boosted 4.0-litre diesel-burner. This is enough power to get the rather larger SUV to 100km/h in just under 4.5 seconds. The “truck” can also gain numerous visual upgrades in the form of a new front splitter, skirts and a large rear diffuser. By the pictures, it is clear that the suspension is lowered considerably and the wheels are gargantuan 23-inchers.

No, the Audi SQ8 will not be coming to our side of the Pond, ever. However, the RS Q8, on the other hand, may very well grace us with its presence in the not-to-distant future. We’ll have to settle for the 600+ horsepower Goliath…
