Audi Q8 Sport Concept Orange Profile

Audi is following up its original Q8 concept from earlier in the year with a new design that gives it a sportier look and a unique new powertrain system. The engine is a 3.0L six-cylinder that features a mild hybrid system and for the first time ever, an electric powered compressor. 

This all works out to 476-hp, 516 lb-ft of torque and a 0-62 time of 4.7 seconds leading up to a top speed of 170 mph. All that power comes with lots of range too as the car can travel up to 745 miles on a single tank of gas. No word yet on when we'll see the final production form of the Q8, but if the prototypes are any indication, Audi's flagship SUV will definitely be one hell of a car.
