Mansory showcased its version of the Audi RS Q8 on Instagram, a follow-up to the tuner's take on the German SUV a few years ago. The Urus' platform twin receives performance upgrades and new exterior enhancements, enough for the performance model to outdo the most powerful version of the Lamborghini SUV.

Differing from its previous work, the revised Mansory Audi RS Q8 gets a revised front fascia with a more aggressive bumper, larger air intakes, and a lower diffuser in carbon fiber. The hood also features the same carbon finish. The body is finished in green with yellow accents on the bumpers, wheels, and brake calipers.

Mansory didn't leave the engine untouched, with some hardware upgrades installed for the RS Q8's 4.0-liter V8. Among these enhancements is an in-house built exhaust system, accompanied by various minor tweaks and a modified ECU unit.

The result of these upgrades is a peak output of 769 horsepower and an impressive torque of 737 lb-ft - numbers that trump the Urus Performante. With these figures, the RS Q8 achieves a 0-62 mph sprint in 3.3 seconds. For reference, the Lamborghini Urus Performante can accelerate at exactly the same rate albeit with a lower hp rating - and that's out of the factory.

To ensure optimal traction and handling, Mansory equips the RS Q8 with 24-inch wheels on all four corners. This set was said to be chosen to minimize the unsprung mass of the vehicle, further enhancing the RS Q8's already impressive performance. The front and rear wheel arches are adorned with massive 295/30 R24 and 355/25 R24 tires.

Mansory's Audi RS Q8 has certainly turned a lot of heads and has already gained more than 60,000 likes on its Instagram. With this many performance modifications installed, however, surely the smart choice would be to just get the Urus Performante and call it a day.
