ABT SQ7 based on Audi Q7
"ABT enhanced Audi's large Q7 SUV, this time naming it SQ7, instead of previous naming of QS7. The ABT SQ7 features 4.0-liter turbo-diesel engine which now produces 520 hp and 970 Nm, being able to reach 62 mph from zero in 4.6 seconds. ABT has also given the SQ7 a ride-height controlling feature which can lower the car by as much as 20mm. Below is the official press release from ABT:" Ed.
When ABT Sportsline started to enhance large SUVs like the VW Touareg and Audi Q7 it also started a real success story. After all, the premium SUVs ABT calls “very racy” are indeed racers. And the new Audi SQ7 is also a potential champion, with its unique “ingredients”. Its power has been raised from 435 hp (320 kW) to no less than 520 hp (382 kW). With the 4.0l turbo diesel’s torque raised from 900 Nm to 970 Nm, it has become a veritable draught horse. And on the fast lane you can notice its power when this up to 2.5t-heacy car reaches 100 kph in 4.6 seconds, enough to show the odd sports car who’s king.
The new ABT SQ7 is a special car, meeting all the highest standards applied to dynamics, agility, sportiness and comfort. He is really the king among the big ones right now, for its power, chassis and looks are perfectly balanced, but what about its sound? Thanks to the ABT Sound Control, this soft diesel becomes a sonorous racer. And if you choose both the uprating and sound optimisation, this package will save you a few euros, too.
The SQ7 reveals the enormous ABT POWER in an impressive fashion, also because of the ABT Level Control. On both the front and rear axles, the CoG can be lowered by about 20mm, which will make the car corner extremely well. Above 70 kph, it will rise to the level set by the owner. This allows both comfortable cruises and sportiness.
And the SQ7 is, of course, also available with extravagant sport-type wheels. The DR and FR come in 22’’. Needless to say that the wheels can also be bought in combination with Dunlop or Continental high-performance tyres, convenient also with +30mm wheel spacers. The 295/35 R22 tires are perfect for the ABT SQ7’s weight and power. And in combination with the fender inserts made of carbon or ABS they look assertive, huge and elegant.
