The Audi RS Q8 has always been a more practical option to the Lamborghini Urus, delivering blazing performance straight from the factory. O.CT Tuning offers three degrees of performance tuning for the RS Q8, giving massive power statistics, for owners who wish to be faster than the Italian SUV from Sant’Agata.
The adjusted RS Q8 looks almost identical to the factory unit. The only difference is the 23-inch aluminium forged rims, which save 8 kg (17.6 lbs) of unsprung weight per wheel while also filling up the wheelarches well.

In factory configuration, the RS Q8’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 delivers 591 horsepower (441 kW / 599 PS) and 590 lb-ft (799 Nm) of torque. O.CT Tuning boosts the power to 791 horsepower (590 kW / 802 PS) and torque to 1,030 Nm (760 lb-ft). The boost was made possible by the Performance 3 package, which includes software optimization as well as a reworked exhaust system that produces a throatier sound.
The Performance 1 package from the German tuner comes with 690 horsepower (515 kW / 700 PS) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) thanks to ECU modifications. Finally, with ECU and intake system modifications, the Performance 2 pack boosts the engine to 725 horsepower (541 kW / 735 PS) and 950 Nm (701 lb-ft). The bundles haven’t been priced yet, but OC.T Tuning is taking orders.
