When Audi launched the Q8 in late 2018, it introduced an SUV that combines functionality, elegance, and performance. With the 2024 model, the Q8 and it’s more powerful brother SQ8, now received an updated exterior and interior design and ABT Sportsline offers a wide selection of upgrades for both models.

First and foremost, ABT is taking on the important task of increasing the performance. The Q8 comes with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder with 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Our specially developed ABT Engine Control (AEC) bumps that up to 400 hp and 405 lb-ft* of torque.

The SQ8 as the name already suggests is a lot sportier thanks to its 4.0-liter biturbo V8. From the factory the spacious SUV delivers 500 hp and 569 lb-ft of torque. With the ABT Engine Control, the TFSI engines output increases of up to 640 HP and 626 lb-ft* of torque. That is more than the top-of-the-line performance model RS Q8 offers!

For the refreshed exterior of the Q8 and SQ8 ABT Sportsline offers a roof wing and carbon fiber fender inserts. Attractive alloy wheels are also essential in creating a vehicle’s coherent aesthetic. The 23-inch ABT High Performance GR or HR in “Glossy Black” finish look breathtaking, especially on a massive SUV like the Q8 or SQ8. All ABT Sportsline high-performance wheels feature one-piece manufacturing and are up to 40% lighter than conventional cast wheels. If you like the multi-spoke design but prefer a smaller size, both HR and GR designs are available in 22” inch as well.

When it comes to the interior, ABT Sportsline is all about creating a more luxurious driving experience with a carbon fiber shift knob cover and carbon fiber coated dashboard side panels and front seat panels.

The ABT Sportsline upgrades are available for all Q8 and SQ8 model years and can be checked out in the ABT online configurator or through the dedicated US price lists here
