The Audi Q8, the SUV flagship of the brand, was spotted testing on the German Nürburgring race track by our sources, which noticed refreshed bumpers, fenders, side sills, tailgate and lighting units. The most significant change compared to the current Audi RS Q8 is the LED headlights and taillights graphics.
Other notable changes at the front include the honeycomb pattern on the single-frame grille, which now features larger holes. The surfacing on the front and rear fenders appears identical under the camouflage, but Audi may be hiding some trim changes. The same applies to the tail, except for the lighting units and possibly the rear diffuser.
The debut of the refreshed Audi RS Q8 is expected in 2024, six years after its original debut in 2018. In addition, an all-new second generation of the Q8 is rumored for 2026, when Audi will launch its last new internal combustion engine-powered model before going electric-only by 2033.
