The Nürburgring Circuit, a racing circuit in the Nürburg region of West Germany, is often used by car manufacturers to test the performance of their products. Quite often cars that have not been officially released often milling about on this circuit. Once used for racing like F1, DTM, and GP2, the 5.148Km circuit is now indirectly a war zone for car manufacturers to print the fastest time in various car categories.
For the SUV category, Nürburgring has a new king, the Audi RS Q8. The car that has not been officially released by Audi has won the position previously occupied by Mercedes AMG GLC 63 S. Can be seen on the official site of Nürburgring, Audi RS Q8 managed to carve a record time of about 12 seconds faster than its competitor, Mercedes.
Audi RS Q8 managed to complete the Nürburgring in 7: 42: 253 at the hands of a racer named Frank Stippler.
This sporty-style SUV carries a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine under the hood. From the engine around 592HP power and torque of 800Nm were obtained. With that much power the Q8 RS can reach speeds of 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds and will continue to advance until the top speed of 306 km / h.
Reporting from the Autocar page, the Q8 RS uses air suspension and 48V anti-roll bars. To get a steady handling when crossing the circuit, the suspension is made 10% harder and stiffer through the default Audi software. This car uses a 4WD setting along with torque-vectoring sport rear differential technology. Wheel section, the Q8 RS uses 23-inch rims wrapped in 295/35 ZR23 Pirelli P Zero tires.
