2019 Audi SQ8 spied without disguise

The upcoming Audi SQ8 has been spied completely devoid of camouflage, ahead of a likely official reveal later this year. Spotted in Europe, this white prototype looks pretty similar to standard Q8 variants, with the exception of the quad-tipped exhaust down the back.

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...
