Thanks to the optional Carbon Ceramic brakes, the RS Q8 has exceptional fade-free braking performance, on road or on track. The painted calipers, in grey, red or blue, add a not subtle hint of aggression.
Mounted within easy reach of the driver’s thumb, the RS mode button allows the driver to save 2 customizable driving profiles. Perfect for when the mood strikes, the RS Q8 will be ready.
