We have long been looking forward to meeting information on the Audi Q8. Will be a model SUV coupé -style BMW X 6, i.e. a car large, luxurious and high capacity dynamic asphalt despite their large size and heavy weight. Off the road best not ask it us. Audi Q8 you will reach the market next year , but meanwhile, Audi Q8 Sport Concept helps us to open mouth.
Just be revealed in the 87 Edition of the Geneva Motor, just a few minutes ago. Which we see in the pictures is a sporty version which, possibly, hit the market as Audi SQ8. Unlike the variant presented a couple of months at the Detroit show, this not uses a hybrid itself, propulsion system, but an engine V6 petrol with energy recovery. We explain it.
Under the front hood is a 3.0 TFSI 6-cylinder “V”, supercharged by a compressor, with a micro-hybrid system. The energy developed by this Audi Q8 Sport Concept is 476 HPand 700 Nm. Of all that figure of power, 450 CV come of the engine heat, while the 26 CV remaining come of the small system electric of recovery of energy that allows boost slightly to the vehicle.
Audi says that this big SUV coupé is capable of performing a 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds, can travel at a maximum speed of about 275 km/h. The four rings brand boasts performance similar to an engine V8, with a few own a four-cylinder consumption thanks to the system of energy recovery, which greatly reduces “the thirst” for a car as large as this. Frankly, we wanted to see the final production model and be able to drive it. Better than its main rivals Mercedes GLE Coupe or BMW X 6?
