2022 Audi Q8

The Audi Q8 is a coupe-styled SUV. The range-topping variant costs Rs 1.38 crore, ex-showroom, which translates into more than Rs 1.5 crore, on-road. The Audi Q8 is powered by a 3.0-litre TSFI petrol engine, that churns out a maximum power of 340 Bhp and 500 Nm torque. The Q8 is the flagship variant of the German manufacturer.

The Audi Q8 is wider, shorter and lower than the Audi Q7. It sure looks highlighted on the roads. The Audi Q8 has multiple high-end features including HD matrix LED headlamps technology and three-dimensional signature LED DRLs.

The car also gets very comfortable customized contour seats with massage function and ventilation, four-zone climate control and an air quality package with fragrance with an ionizer. The dashboard of the Q8 comes with two massive 10.1-inch and 8.6-inch screens. In the place of the instrument cluster, there is a 12.30unch high-resolution display of the traditional speedometer which can be switched between two views via the multi-function steering wheel.

The Audi Q8 also comes with ‘natural language voice control’ which helps drivers word their commands freely. The Audi is also offering the ‘myAudi’ connect services in the Q8 to provide inline connectivity.

Badshah owns a slew of luxury cars

He also owns a range of other luxury-branded vehicles including a BMW 640d and a Jaguar sedan. But his BMW was on sale in the used car market some time ago. A lot of celebrities have started buying used cars instead of new ones to save money and avoid depreciation.

Badshah loves luxurious cars and also owns a Rolls Royce Wraith. He picked up the Wraith from the used car market as well. The Rolls Royce Wraith is quite uncommon in India as most of the buyers go for the four-door options, which makes it easier for chauffer-driven celebrities.

The singer also owns a pre-owned Urus before this in a beautiful Rosso Anteros shade. The new Lamborghini Urus in Nero Noctis shade will replace the old SUV.
