For starters, the German company has worked to upgrade the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 of the RS Q8. To do this, it has tuned the ECU and installed a high-performance exhaust system. These changes mean the V8 now churns out 769 hp and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque, impressive gains over the 591 hp and 590 lb-ft (799 Nm) of a standard RS Q8.
Thanks to the added grunt, Mansory’s model can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in a mere 3.3 seconds, half a second faster than a stock example. The SUV can also run through to a 198 mph (320 km/h) top speed.
From a visual standpoint, Mansory has gone to town on the super SUV but hasn’t necessarily gone overboard. At the front, for example, the RS Q8 includes a new carbon fiber splitter, as well as carbon fiber around the front grille. There is also an aggressive hood with two large air vents and some red accents on the air intakes.
Other modifications made include the fitment of flared wheel arches, custom 24-inch black wheels with 295/30 and 355/25 tires, distinctive side skirts, and an overhauled rear fascia that includes a bespoke roof spoiler, diffuser, quad tailpipes, and a secondary lip spoiler on the tailgate. Interior tweaks include carbon fiber accents and a Mansory steering wheel.
