The Audi SQ7 represents sportiness in a large format. The recent change from the torque-heavy diesel to the even more powerful gasoline engine has brought further increases in performance. With 507 HP (373 kW), the 2.3-tonne car is catapulted from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds – a current 911 does not achieve this any quicker. In the future, it could even be close for supercars, because ABT Sportsline is already working on a performance upgrade in the form of the ABT Engine Control (AEC) high-tech control unit.

An Audi SQ7 is not lacking in the ‘confident appearance department’. However, with regard to optimum sporting performance, the world’s largest automotive aftermarket and performance parts specialist for Audi and VW would like to add a few words. The ABT wide body aero package is therefore also available for the SQ7 with the new 4-litre TFSI engine. The set includes an aggressively designed front skirt add-on, fender extensions, door strip attachments, rear skirt add-on and an end pipe cover set. A slim body kit version without fender extensions is available, too. SQ7 owners can also order options such as ABS plastic or carbon fiber ABT rear spoiler or fender inserts.

Alongside such prestigious highlights, the alloy wheels may or indeed must also show off their credentials. While the basic SQ7 is equipped with 20-inch wheels as standard, ABT Sportsline is fitting impressive 22-inchers right across the board. For example, the Sport GR, in glossy black or matt black, each with diamond-machined elements. A unique option is the HR Aero rim in dark smoke with matt black aero ring. The third alternative is the flow-forming High PerformanceHR-F, available optionally in dark smoke or glossy black.

Of course, the individual touch must also be evident in the interior – for example in the form of carbon-fiber ABT dashboard and seat frame covers. In addition, the ABT start-stop-switch- cap with illuminated logo and ABT integrated entrance lights are also available. And all under the motto: The choice is yours.
