Already a punchy crossover that traces its roots back not only to the Volkswagen Touareg, but also to the Lamborghini Urus, Porsche Cayenne, and Bentley Bentayga, this Audi RS Q8 has received a number of enhancements, including a power boost.

Curious how much it has on tap? That would be about 840 ps (828 hp / 618 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque, courtesy of a new engine control unit, air intake with sports filter, OPF exhaust pipes, and a few other tweaks, all of which are part of the Stage 3 bundle of upgrades.

Top speed is said to have increased to 333 kph (207 mph), and there is no reference to the new 0 to 100 kph (0-62 mph) time, though it is definitely a few tenths of a second quicker than the stock German super crossover. The latter does it in 3.8 seconds, aided by the 600 ps (592 hp / 441 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) produced by its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8. Flat-out, it can do 250 kph (155 mph).

In addition to the ‘more’ part, Wheelsandmore has also ticked the ‘wheels’ box with a new set. Measuring 10.5x24 inches at the front, and 12.5x24 inches at the rear, they are wrapped in sticky tires, 295/30 and 355/25, respectively, from Vredestein.

According to the tuner, they have invested in the region of €40,000 (equal to ~$42,000) in this RS Q8, which was first registered last June, and has approximately 15,000 km (~9,300 miles) on the clock. Now they’re willing to let it go for €220,000 ($231,685), which is a bit less than the recommended retail price of a brand-new and less powerful Lamborghini Urus. Care to make it yours?
