The new Audi SQ7 is an SUV that effortlessly hides its size in terms of driving performance and agility. When the ABT Sportsline performance upgrade comes into play, experience that sportiness offered by this beast’s more than 500 horsepower. ABT offers the ‘Aeropacket Breitbau’ or as it is commonly known, ‘bodykit’. An aerodynamic improvement and that increases the width of the vehicle. The set includes a front with much more aggressive lines, a larger fender, a very sporty spoiler and a new exhaust pipe. Audi SQ7 owners can optionally order the ABT rear wing as well as ABS plastic or carbon fiber fenders.
When an SQ7 is upgraded in this way, it quickly becomes clear that it is not a serial model. Customers can also go for the ABT Power performance boost only. With the help of a high-tech control unit, the standard 435 hp (320 kW) and 900 Nm are converted to 510 hp (375 kW) and 970 Nm, undoubtedly a very significant increase considering that the weight is maintained. As for the tailpipe, ABT sound control is also available for models with a factory-installed modifiable sound system, ensuring particularly charismatic vehicle sound.
A huge, agile and fast beast
Being such a large vehicle, the tires must be very large, which is why ABT sport tires are only available in 22 inches, but in three exciting designs. There is, for example, the Sport GR model, in glossy black or matt black, and the circumference in diamond polishing. HR Aero in-dark rims, with unusual aerodynamics, are a unique option. The third alternative is the high-performance HR-F wheel. Of course, as always, each customer can choose their own combination of extras and performance parts in the ABT configurator.
ABT Sportsline also offers new components for the interior of the SQ7. They have also added covers and seat frame with a carbon finish. The illuminated logo ABT power button cover and ABT door entry lighting were already available with the previous version of the SQ7.
At the moment, ABT has not disclosed the price of the ‘Bodykit’ package that this machine carries. The only thing we can do for now is take note of its €114,000 base price.
