The new Audi SQ7 is a SUV that effortlessly conceals its weight when it comes to driving performance and agility. More than ever before, the car magazines share the same opinion. And when the recently introduced performance upgrade from ABT Sportsline comes into play, you think you really are in a sports car – albeit just a little higher up. In order to correctly showcase this kudos-creating vehicle in a larger format, the Bavarian company now offer the ABT Aero package wide body. 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 as an option. SQ7 owners can also order additional options available, such as ABS plastic or carbon fibre ABT rear wing or fender inserts.
When an upgraded SQ7 like this glides into your rear-view, you quickly realise that it is not a standard model. In most cases, customers may have also taken advantage of the performance upgrade ABT Power*. A high-tech control unit helps to boost the standard 435 hp (320 kW) and 900 Nm to an enormous 510 hp (375 kW) and 970 Nm. In addition, ABT Sound Control is available for models with factory-fitted Active Sound Systems, to create an especially charismatic vehicle sound.
A road-filling vehicle like this also deserves a set of formidable alloy wheels. So ABT sports wheels are available exclusively in 22-inch, but with three exciting designs to choose from. For example, the Sport GR, in glossy or matt black, with its diamond machined elements. A unique option is the HR Aero in dark smoke with its distinctive aero ring. The third option is the flowforming high-performance wheel HR-F in shadow silver or dark smoke. As always, individual combinations of extras and performance components can be assembled with the ABT Configurator.
The world’s largest tuner of Audi and VW vehicles also offers new interior components for the SQ7. New additions are ABT dashboard covers and seat frame cover panels with carbon trim. Recent introductions include the ABT start-stop switch cap with illuminated logo and ABT integrated entrance lights.
