X-Tomi Design decided to render the second generation Audi Q7 in the range-topping RS guise.

Audi's R&D boss Ulrich Hackenberg has already confirmed the all-new Q7 will spawn an SQ7 derivative and now X-Tomi Design decided to show us an even more powerful version that would be commercialized with the RS Q7 moniker. While the SQ7 will combined a turbodiesel engine with an electric motor, the RS Q7 will likely make use of an uprated twin-turbo V8 4.0 TFSI delivering as much as 600 HP (441 kW), up from the stock configuration rated at 560 HP (412 kW).

Matching the increased horsepower will be a more aggressive styling with bigger vents, muscular wheel arches and side skirts, along with enlarged brakes and dual oval exhaust tips. Such a version would obviously come with a quattro all-wheel drive system and would tip the scales at around 2,200 kg (4,850 lbs) taking into account the new 3.0 TDI Q7 weighs 1,995 kg (4,398 lbs).

There's no word yet about an RS Q7 but if green-lighted for production, Audi will probably introduce it late 2016 / early 2017, approximately one year after the SQ7.
