I was given the chance to drive the new Audi RSQ8 – the fastest SUV on the Nordschleife – in Tenerife. The test vehicles were given to us at our hotel at the sea.

We drove along the the beautiful coastline with its diverse fauna ...

... along trees and vulcanic stones ...

... up the mountains into colder climate.

Stopping along the way for a photo shoot.

The gravel and the new asphalt are the perfect environment for this 600ps monster.

I was also able to drive a few hours in the Audi RSQ8 with Frank Stippler who set the record on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring with the car in the picture.
