Under the front hood is a 3.0 TFSI 6-cylinder in “V”, supercharged by an electric compressor, with a micro-hybrid. The energy developed by this Audi Q8 Sport Concept is 476 HP and 700 Nm. Of all that number of power, 450 HP from the engine heat, while the 26 HP remaining come from the small electrical system of energy recovery that allows you to drive slightly to the vehicle.

Audi tells us that this great SUV coupé is capable of performing a 0 to 100 km/h in just 4,7 seconds, travelling at a maximum speed of around 275 km/h. The brand of the four rings boasts a benefits similar to those of a V8 engine, with a few consumption of a four-cylinder engine thanks to the energy recovery system, which significantly reduces “the thirst” of a car as big as this. Sincerely, we are eager to see the final model of production and power to drive it. Will it be better than its main rivals Mercedes GLE Coupe or the BMW X6?
