Audi SQ7 Gets A Sleek New Look

Tuning / Comments

But a new widebody surely needs more power than this?

The Audi SQ7 is not a cheap SUV, but when you're getting a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 500 horsepower and 569 lb-ft of torque, its asking price isn't too bad. It can do 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and tops out at 155 mph. That's plenty for a big family SUV like this, but what if you want more show to match the go? Well, that's where ABT Sportsline comes in. The tuners have previously worked on the car, endowing it with more power and a widebody kit, but the company is now offering a new range of wheels to complement the kit.

Let's talk about the kit first. It includes add-ons for the front bumper, fender extensions, door strip attachments, add-ons for the rear skirt, and covers for the exhaust tips. Alternatively, if you don't want a wider stance, ABT also offers a "slim kit" without fender extensions, but both can be accompanied by a rear spoiler and/or fender inserts in ABS plastic or carbon fiber. To make the kit really stand out, you can equip an upgrade from the standard 20-inch wheels by equipping 22-inch wheels. Sport GR wheels in gloss or matte black with diamond-cut highlights are available, as are HR Aero wheels in dark smoke with matte black rims. Or you can fit flow-formed High Performance HR-F wheels in dark smoke or gloss black.

Of course, no tuning conversion is complete without the interior seeing attention, so you can fit carbon fiber dashboard covers and seatback covers. Also catered for is an illuminated ABT start/stop switch cap, as well as ABT entrance, but for now, ABT has elected against offering a performance upgrade for the engine, although we have no doubt that one will soon become available. What else would you expect from a company that can boost an RS Q8 to almost 700 hp? As for pricing on the SQ7's kit, ABT doesn't provide a clue on their configurator, but you can rest assured that none of the components will be cheap.
