The pictures of Sanya Malhotra taking the delivery of a new Audi Q8 were shared by Jubilant Sports Cars on its social media accounts. In the Instagram post shared by the dealer outlet’s Instagram account, the caption stated, “Audi Mumbai South is ecstatic to have delivered the richly equipped, comprehensively connected and versatile Audi Q8 to @sanyamalhotra_, one of our most promising actresses. Congratulations on your accomplishments and wishing you many memorable drives on your new Audi Q8.”
Sanya Malhotra is the third noteworthy celebrity from the tinsel town to acquire the Audi Q8, with the first being Audi India’s brand ambassador and former Indian Cricket Team Captain, Virat Kohli. Recently, renowned rapper and singer Badshah also purchased a brand new orange coloured Audi Q8 in Mumbai.
The Audi Q8 sits at the top of Audi’s SUV lineup and is positioned even above the mighty Audi Q7, which at one point in time was the top pick of Bollywood celebrities for their daily drives. The five-seater Audi Q8 might not be a high-selling model for Audi in India but suits the flagship tag of Audi’s SUV lineup befittingly due to its striking and sharp coupe-like profile, mammoth road presence and luxurious cabin with top-notch features.
The Audi Q8 is available in India in a single fully-loaded variant, which is powered by a 3.0-litre TFSI turbocharged V6 petrol engine. Coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and Audi’s famed Quattro all-wheel-drive system, this V6 engine produces a maximum power output of 335 bhp and a peak torque output of 500 Nm. The car is equipped with premium features like Matrix LED headlamps with 3D daytime running LEDs, contour leather seats with ventilation and massage functions, a 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display, a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 8.6-inch touchscreen for climate control and other systems, four-zone automatic climate control with air purifier and fragrance.
Priced at Rs 1.38 crore for the single 55 TSI Quattro variant in which it is offered, the Audi Q8 is priced against top-spec SUVs like Land Rover Range Rover Sport, BMW X6, Lexus RX 450hL, Maserati Levante and Porsche Cayenne.
