The Vorsprung trim accentuates the opulent luxury of the Audi Q8 Black Edition, by adding unique 22” alloy wheels, soft Valcona leather with a diamond-stitched pattern, and the latest in driver assistance systems to help you park, save fuel and, most importantly, stay safe.


  • 22” x 10.0J ‘5-V-spoke star’ design in gloss anthracite black alloy wheels with 285/40 R22 tyres

Performance and suspension

  • All-wheel steering - improves the driving dynamics and the driving comfort as a result of additional steerability of the rear axle. At lower speeds, the rear axle self-steers oppositely to the steering angle of the front axle. This results in higher agility and a smaller steering angle, making manoeuvring easier. At higher speeds, steering in the same direction improves the responsiveness, as well as the driving dynamics, cornering and vehicle stability.

Exterior equipment

  • Power door closure – comfortable and secure door closure

  • Adaptive windscreen wipers with integrated washer jets

  • Panoramic glass sunroof
  • Audi Beam - uses LEDs to project the Vorsprung logo onto the ground as you exit your Q8

  • Driver and front passenger memory function for the electrically adjustable front seats
  • Front seat ventilation with massage function - Massage of muscular system with 10 pneumatic cushions, 7 different programmes (Wave, Tap, Stretch, Recover, Shoulder, Empower and Vitalised) at 3 intensity levels. The massage function can be switched on and off via a lumbar support button with an integrated massage direct button. Programmes and intensities can be adjusted using the MMI

  • USB Interface in the rear – 2 USB-C ports in the rear with charge functions

Driver assistance

  • Advanced Key - access and authorisation system that works through automatic data exchange between key and vehicle, allowing the driver to keep the car key in their pocket or bag at all times. To unlock and open, simply lift the exterior door handle, use a kicking motion underneath the car at the rear of the vehicle or hold down the convenience key. 

  • 360° camera - wide-angle lenses cover the close-range area around the vehicle. The driver can choose between different image representations in the touch screen, including a live ‘bird’s-eye view’, a view of the front and rear wheels, front camera view or panoramic front and rear view. The 360° camera is activated when reverse gear is selected or via a button on the virtual switch panel

  • Park Assist with Parking aid plus – when activated the system searches for suitable parking spaces along the road by means of ultrasonic sensors and calculates the ideal parking path. The vehicle then takes over and performs the steering, acceleration, and braking automatically. The system can support the driver with:
     ► Parallel parking in reverse and forwards
     ► Exiting a parallel parking space, driving forwards
     ► Bay parking, both in reverse and forwards
  • Audi Side Assist - when activated, the system aids the driver when changing lanes. Audi Side Assist monitors the area behind the vehicle informing the driver with a visual warning signal in the door mirror, if there is a vehicle in their blind spot or approaching quickly from behind. In the event of the driver starting a lane change with a warning in effect, the warning LED will flash 4 times. In conjunction with the departure warning, corrective steering intervention can be performed in critical situations

  • Audi Pre Sense Basic - where necessary, actions are taken to help protect the driver and passenger if a potential collision is detected, including seat belt tightening front and rear, closing windows and closing the the panoramic roof

  • Audi Pre Sense Rear - monitors vehicles following from behind, and if a potential collision is detected, the driver is first warned visually via a flashing light. If a collision is unavoidable actions are taken, in line with Audi Pre-sense Basic, to protect the occupants. The system is deactivated when towing

  • Cross Traffic Assist Front - within system limits, warns the driver of traffic crossing in front or to the side of the vehicle, using vehicle sensors. The system first alerts the driver visually and then acoustically via the MMI. A brake jolt is applied if a potential collision is detected. The system can also assist the driver at crossings and exits with poor visibility, and warn against a possible collision with oncoming traffic detected from the side

  • Cross Traffic Assist Rear - Warns the driver of traffic crossing behind their own vehicle when starting to reverse without having a clear view of the situation (e.g. perpendicular parking space with restricted view or narrow driveway). The system alerts the driver first visually and then acoustically via the MMI, and can apply a brake jolt if a potential collision is detected

  • Exit Warning - Warns the driver of potential collisions with detected traffic approaching from the rear, when a door is opened whilst the vehicle is stationary. When the door release lever is pulled and another road user deemed critical is approaching, the warning strip in the door and the LED indicator on the exterior mirror on the affected side light up. Simultaneously, the door opening is delayed briefly

  • Adaptive Cruise Assist - supports the driver when accelerating, braking, maintaining distances, and with steering in the range of 0–155mph.***** Within the system limits, the system detects the lane markings, structures next to the road, vehicles in adjacent lanes and multiple vehicles ahead. The system can be adjusted in single and 5mph increments between 19mph and 155mph.***** The system will keep the vehicle in the centre of the lane and maintain speed and distance, or adjust the speed to the situation. This is all made possible by the radar sensor, front camera and ultrasonic sensors that permanently monitor the vehicle surroundings. Using information such as speed restrictions, the MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch uses the data from the predictive efficiency assistant to control speed even when there are no vehicles ahead, encouraging economical driving

  • Predictive efficiency assistant - The system uses navigation data e.g. speed limits, traffic signs, road bends, junctions and roundabouts to give the driver efficiency advice in the Audi Virtual Cockpit. In conjunction with Adaptive Cruise Assist, the system uses the route data and speed limits to adjust the desired speed and cornering accordingly. The system activates coasting mode or engine braking, which can help reduce fuel consumption and enhance ride comfort

  • Camera-based traffic sign recognition - speed limit and traffic sign display via the Audi Virtual Cockpit and head-up display. Detects the following signs: speed limits (including temporary limits) and overtaking restrictions. Up to 3 traffic signs can be displayed in the Audi Virtual Cockpit at any one time

  • Collision avoidance assistant - supports the driver’s actions during an avoidance manoeuvre, reducing the likelihood of a collision or of swerving off the road. The system provides additional steering torque and uses the vehicle sensors to calculate the optimum path of avoidance

  • Turn assist - when turning at junctions, from the moment the turn indicators are activated, the turn assist system detects approaching vehicles and applies braking to help avoid a collision

  • Emergency Assist - The emergency assist detects, within system limits, when the driver is inactive. When this happens, it warns the driver visually, acoustically, and haptically. If no response is received, the system takes over vehicle guidance and brings it to an automatic standstill in its own lane, activating Audi Pre-sense Basic measures. An automatic emergency call is placed, if available
