Audi have shown off a sports version of their Q8 concept. The powertrain features a twin turbo V6 with a mild hybrid setup to help boost power levels up to 350 kW (469 hp) and a big dollop of 700 Nm of torque.
"The drive system of the Audi Q8 sport concept is a major step towards optimising efficiency and sustainability in large-volume series production. The combination of mild hybrid technology and a TFSI engine sets a new benchmark for the synthesis of electromobility and combustion engines. In the future, this combination will be used in many Audi models," says Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management at AUDI AG.
