Review

An outstandingly fast Sports SUV that’ll be more practical than its Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio and BMW X6 M Competition rivals, but the RS Q8’s excessive weight holds it back from being the best handling in its class

Trim: Carbon Black

This boosts the RS Q8's already comprehensive specification with electric rear side sunblinds and rear-seat USB ports, but much of what it offers is cosmetic, with huge 23in alloy wheels, carbon fibre detailing inside and out, and leather for other interior surfaces besides the seats.

Engine: RS Q8 TFSI Quattro

Every RS Q8 uses a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine, and is seriously fast, with 0-62mph covered in a scarcely believable 3.8 seconds. Overtaking power is immense, and you’re rewarded with a growling V8 soundtrack and a wonderfully bassy exhaust tone, but fuel economy isn't a strong point.
