Big things don’t like to move quickly.

That’s why it takes more than just power to change a large object’s “willingness” to move.

You need that first strong push – say, from four driven wheels.
Then you need muscle to pick up speed – a twin-turbo V8 does the trick.
The pace only comes with the right conduit, like a snappy 8-speed automatic and rear LSD.
Direction changes are even more challenging – for those, try rear-wheel steering and active anti-roll bars.
And let’s not forget trying to slow 5,500 pounds – only immense carbon ceramic brakes will do.

Being perched two-dozen inches off the ground while pulling over a G in a corner, or cracking off 3-second sprints to 60 mph…should feel wrong.

It doesn’t.

The Audi RSQ8 won’t let you forget its size or weight, but it does leap and dance as if that’s all it ever learned.

Spot a gap – take it.
Find a good road – carve it.
Run an errand – faster.

The 23-inch wheels and forearm-sized rotors are a bit of a giveaway, but the rest of the RSQ8’s design is inconspicuous and refined.
Inside, the sleek aesthetic is decorated with suede and carbon fiber.
Adult passengers can stretch their legs in both rows, and kids will get a kick out of the barking exhaust note.

There are flashier, and even faster SUVs on the market, but glitz gets old and price tags can double.

Let the Audi RSQ8 do the heavy lifting for you, for less.
