The Fast and the Curious - How fast can a 600hp SUV lap India's race tracks?| Audi RS Q8 Fastest Lap

The Audi RS Q8 thundered into the spotlight by setting the SUV lap record at the legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife. We've set out to repeat the feat at each of India's race tracks - Madras Motor Race Track, Kari Motor Speedway and Buddh International Circuit - with race ace Aditya Patel setting the times. Mind you, the RS Q8 won't be treated with kid's gloves between the hot laps. To see just how well it fits into the India scheme of things, the Audi will be driven from track to track in a 3000km+ pan-India journey.

    @Quick tech But the RSQ8 is 0.2 secs slower than the Urus. Moreover the RSQ8 has Urus like looks. So it is absolutely waste to spend extra 1.6 crore on the Urus over the RSQ8 as it offers the same experience. At extra 1.6 crore, you get Range Rover Sport, BMW X7, Mercedes-Benz GLS, Audi Q8 and Porsche Cayenne or maybe a 3 bhk flat. The Urus is absolutely worthless. If I want a Lamborghini then I will extend little more and get the Hurracan which has a V10.
