When you talk about redefining luxury in the mainstream world, the Germans do it best. From BMW, and Mercedes-Benz to Audi, their vehicles, especially in the higher trims, are the epitome of luxury and comfort. The same can be applied to the 2023 Audi RSQ8, a mid-size luxury crossover SUV coupé revealed back in 2018. It’s definitely one of the most beautiful SUVs out there, garnering a large customer base. However, it’s the ultimate version of the vehicle – the RSQ8 – that gets the most attention, and for valid reasons.
Revealed back at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, it features the same engine found in the Audi RS6 and RS7 of the current generation. The 4.0-liter TFSI engine delivers 600 horsepower and 590lb-ft (800Nm) of torque. It utilizes an 8-Speed Tiptronic automatic transmission system by ZF – one of the best in its class – powering all four wheels thanks to the Audi Quattro all-wheel drive system. In turn, the vehicle can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 3.8 seconds. It will reach a top speed of 155mph (250km/h) in standard form when it’s electronically limited, but when equipped with the dynamic package, it can go all the way to 189mph (305km/h).
The RSQ8 features an aggressive exterior, combined with a comfortable luxury interior. It’s one of the best-looking SUV coupés on the market today, and it’s no wonder that Audi can’t make enough of them to meet the sales demand. The owner of this Mythos Black Metallic 2023 Audi RSQ8, the owner brought his brand new car to our Los Angeles detailing facility for a full protection package, ensuring the pristine paint job of his vehicle is completely protected against daily wear & tear.
The project started off with complete multi-stage paint correction, ensuring the factory paint finish is brought to a whole new level. Our multi-stage paint correction starts with a complete wash done strictly by hand, followed by the paint restoration that achieves what can be dubbed as a better-than-new, showroom-quality mirror finish. This was followed by a full front-end XPEL Ultimate Plus Paint Protection Film w/ added rear bumper, carbon fiber package, and lower body high impact areas.
In addition to the PPF, we’ve applied a complete vehicle Gyeon Q2 Infinite Base Type 1 ceramic coating for both the bodywork and wheel barrels and brake calipers as well. This ensures the work performed on the original paint of the vehicle is protected for years to come.
The final touch for the exterior is the XPEL Prime XR Plus Premium ceramic window tint, providing SPF 1,000 protection that effectively blocks over 99% of harmful UV rays that can lead to numerous skin cancers, premature aging, and skin cell damage, a feature our California-based customers will appreciate.
For the interior, protecting the pristine luxury interior is a Gyeon Q2 Leather Shield interior ceramic coating. If you’ve ever owned a luxury vehicle with a leather interior, you know how hard it is to keep it pristine for a long period of time. This ensures the factory look and the longevity of the interior are kept for years to come, making this one of the most pleasing locations you can go to each morning. And if you daily drive a high-performance beast as our customer does, you’ll definitely appreciate it.
