That’s right, the SQ8 and Urus share the same engine and underpinnings, yet the Audi costs nearly £100,000 less than the Lamborghini.
Naturally, there are some differences. The Audi’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo petrol V8 engine (that’s right, it’s not longer a diesel). It produces 500bhp and 770Nm of torque, which is some 91bhp down on the RSQ8 and 150bhp shy of the Urus’ output. But then again, the SQ8 ‘only’ costs £80,000 and packs supercar levels of performance complete with a stunning V8 soundtrack. It’s thirsty, as to be expected with a massive V8 up front, but it’s the most fun you’ll have in an SUV under £100,000.
