In the span of a week, the Audi RS Q8 clocked the fastest lap time for an SUV at the Madras Motor Race Track (MMRT), Kari Motor Speedway, near Coimbatore; and the Buddh International Circuit (BIC), in Greater Noida.
The record run, named ‘The Fastest Lap’, was conducted by Autocar India, with racing driver Aditya Patel behind the wheel at all three circuits.
The Audi RSQ8’s lap times at the MMRT (1:52.911); Kari Motor Speedway (1:13.691) and BIC (2:16.767) were not just demonstrative of its performance capabilities, but also its handling prowess.
After making short work of the technical, twisty, and relatively small circuits at Chennai and Coimbatore, the Audi RS Q8 conquered India’s first and only Formula One track at the BIC.
The lap records at all three circuits were ratified by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India and The India Book of Records.“
The Audi RS Q8 has once again reaffirmed that our sportiest Q is a large SUV coupe with the genes of a true high-performance sports car on the road.
With its road-run from Chennai to Noida in addition to the exploits on the track, it stands out as an all-in-one model that is at home in the rough as it is on the racetrack,” said Mr. Balbir Singh Dhillon, Head of Audi India.
