(Almost) 2000 kilometres in the 2019 Audi Q8

While the CarAdvice office shuts down (mostly) over the Christmas break, those few weeks are a great opportunity to thoroughly road test cars. With a longer loan period and the inevitable road trips planned, you start to really live with a car and pile on kays in all types of conditions. I count myself pretty lucky in that I’ve been able add almost 2000 kilometres to the odometer of a 2019 Audi Q8...

Speaking with Autocar at the reveal of the Q8 (pictured) in Shenzen, China last month, CEO Rupert Stadler (who has since been arrested by German authorities, read up on that here) left the door open for an even more luxurious model...

A prototype believed to be the upcoming Audi RS Q8 has been spied with less camouflage, giving us a better look at the upcoming flagship four-ringed SUV. Snapped alongside an early development vehicle for the next-generation RS6, the RS Q8 has dropped more than half of the swirly black-and-white wrap that disguised most of the vehicle we spotted in May – though there aren't really any surprises in terms of the overall design...

2019 Audi RS Q8 spied

A development prototype believed to be the Audi RS Q8 has been spied this week, giving us a first look at the flagship version of the company's upcoming SUV coupe. While the quad tailpipes out the back would indicate an 'S' model not an 'RS', the design of the front intakes and massive brakes with six-piston calipers up front hint at a Rennsport variant, and photographers noted a "deeper sound"– Audi tried a similar trick with an RS Q3 prototype spotted recently...

The upcoming Audi Q8 has been spotted almost disguise-free on a highway in Europe. The photo was taken by user Beckervdo and posted on the forums of AutoPareri. Although the car was only photographed from behind, and there's black tape disguising the tailgate's portion of the tail-lights, it's clear the production Q8 will be eerily similar to the concept car...
