Mansory Gives RSQ8 780 hp, All the Carbon Add-ons

780 hp for Audi super SUV

  • 3.3 seconds to 100 for uber Audi

  • 24s and all the carbon bodywork you can handle


Mansory has turned its latest attentions to the Audi RSQ8. Turning the super SUV into one of the most eye-catching you’ll ever see, powered by a version of Audi’s 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that now makes 780 hp and 737 lb-ft. So at least if you don’t like the looks, you won’t have to see it for very long.

The tuner started with their modifications to the engine of the RS6, only this time it makes even more power. Enough power to let it hit 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds from a stop and top out at 320 km/h. The extra power comes from an in-house designed exhaust system as well as Mansory’s own ECU tuning putting it well over the stock 600 hp.

A big part of the appeal here is the bodywork, which has been largely replaced and augmented by carbon fibre panels and add-ons. That includes the massive side skirts as well as front and rear bumpers. The entire hood has been replaced with a carbon part with a pair of massive ducts in the front.

24-inch alloys and a rear spoiler complete the transformation. Mansory says that despite the massive size (and their 295 front, 355 rear tires), the wheels “help to minimise the unsprung masses, which noticeably improves handling.”

Inside, the Audi is heavily worked over as well, with red contrasting seams on all of the leather bits, plus new carbon fibre trim and a Mansory-badged steering wheel.

It’s not subtle, but subtle isn’t what Mansory buyers are looking for. They’re looking for bold and fast, and this delivers in spades.
