JUST COME INTO STOCK – With just 1,292 miles on the clock, this jaw-dropping Audi-Exclusive Venetian Violet Purple 2023 Audi RSQ8.

If you’ve ever desired to obtain the unobtainable, you don’t need to find a magic lamp, as Automotive Addiction has just granted your wish. This truly mind-bendingly capable machine offers genuine supercar pace with SUV space.

This simply sensational Audi RSQ8 is offered with only 1,292 miles and full extended front end PPF from new. This crucial defensive shielding is necessary to protect the mystical Venetian Violet Purple paintwork, an Audi-Exclusive finish that not only required a two-and-a-half-year wait time, but is currently unavailable to specify from the factory, as all Audi-Exclusive allocations have now been fulfilled by Audi, meaning this example is believed to be the only one in the UK in this unique colourway.

We took delivery of this car originally with delivery mileage and the transportation wraps still intact.

This ultra-exclusive regal hue is a fitting pigment for a vehicle equipped with a King’s ransom of options. As the top-of-the-line Vorsprung model, it features an incredible £17,800 of factory optional extras over and above the already loaded standard specification of the RSQ8. This includes must-have items such as soft-close power doors, the Tour Pack suite of driver assistance aids, the City Pack collection of anti-collision warning aids, self-parking functionality, a panoramic glass sunroof, a luxurious interior with ventilated RS Supersport massage seats and alcantara headlining, as well as a heads-up display, RS Sports exhaust system and the excellent Comfort and Sound Pack complete with a Bang & Olufsen premium sound system, 360-degree camera system, heated front and rear seats, and heated steering wheel.

Additional extras on top of this are also included such as carbon matt twill interior inlays, black aluminium roof rails, red RS logo brake calipers and a complementing red RS Design interior styling package, which adds tactile alcantara to all interior touchpoints, extended leather, red pin stripped seatbelts and RS logo floor mats. Combined with the exquisite paint finish, these extras raise the value of the options of this mind-blowing machine to £24,000.

But even these most sought-after of upgrades are merely the icing on the cake. Powered by a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine producing 600PS and 800NM of torque, it is able to catapult this opulent brute from a standstill to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds.

But this is far from just an accomplished sprinter, as combined with the acclaimed Quattro all-wheel drive system, Rear-Axle steering, and RS specific adaptive air suspension, this luxurious SUV can make cross continental travel a breeze, and can defy physics on a race circuit, proven by its Nürburgring time of 7minutes 42seconds, which is 5 seconds quicker than the Lamborghini Urus and the second fastest production SUV in the world.

Throw in the mild hybrid technology 48-volt electrical system and cylinder on demand technology to increase fuel efficiency, and you have a vehicle that really can do it all, and in the most majestic style.

VAT-Qualifying – meaning that business or export customers can take advantage of the ability to reclaim the VAT. Making this an excellent choice for business use, while the Audi manufacturer’s warranty is valid until October 2026.

As always with cars offered for sale by Automotive Addiction, even this as new example will be further enhanced by an additional 40 hours of meticulous preparation by our in-house detailing team, including multi-stage paint correction to ensure a truly unrivalled finish.
