The interior design is kept secret: it is likely that differences from SQ8 the cabin will be reduced to a more sporty front seats, carbon and metal inserts on the front panel, tunnel and door cards.
Under the bonnet of the RS Q8 will be placed 4.0-liter V8 engine with twin turbocharging, issuing about 600 horsepower and is already familiar on models of Porsche and Lamborghini Urus. It is also possible variant with a hybrid power plant, which was first introduced on the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid – in this case, the return will amount to 680 horsepower.
