Audi is apparently planning an onslaught of performance crossovers for the Geneva Motor Show next month. Not only is the German automaker preparing an RS Q5 for the Swiss expo, but now reports indicate that it's gearing up to showcase an RS Q8 concept as well.

Based closely on the Q8 hybrid concept (pictured) revealed in Detroit last month, Autocar reports that the RS Q8 will adopt a performance orientation that would closely preview a production version to follow. Currently the RS Q3 is the only crossover in Ingolstadt's lineup to have received the full performance treatment from Audi Sport.
