The Audi RS Q8 is itself a sub-model of the Q8 lineup, so there are no other trims at this point. And for good reason, as its six-figure sticker price buys all manner of goodies.
Standard features not already mentioned include 10-way power front seats that are heated and cooled, quilted Valcona leather upholstery, a power panoramic sunroof, and 22-inch wheels wrapped in summer tires.
On the performance front, there's an adjustable air suspension, active roll bars, a limited-slip rear differential, and four-wheel steering. A Bang and Olufsen 3D Premium audio system with 17 speakers provides the soundtrack.
A number of available packages are also on offer. Some are merely aesthetic, such as the $4,500 Carbon Optic package, which dresses up the mirrors, bumper inlays, and taillight strip in carbon fiber. To get that package requires the purchase of the $3,250 Black Optic package; this option group includes black exterior trim, a sport exhaust, and 23-inch wheels.
The $2,000 Executive and $3,150 Luxury packages turn their focus to the interior. The former includes dual-pane acoustic glass, a head-up display, power soft-closing doors, and heated rear seats. The latter offers more leather-covered surfaces, an Alcantara headliner, massaging front seats, and rear sunshades.
Standalone options include carbon ceramic brakes and a 23-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system.

Regardless of your budget, skip the overkill carbon ceramic brakes. As good as they are, the standard stoppers are plenty capable of hauling the 2021 Audi RS Q8 down from speed in a hurry. The ceramic setup's slight improvement in braking performance isn't worth the $8,500 price tag.
