If the three letters S, U and V only make you think of a portly, slow vehicle, then you have not yet seen the ABT SQ7. The optimized ABT POWER control unit turns the already powerful 435 hp (320 kW) of the Audi SQ7 into a true powerhouse. ABT Sportsline, market leader for tuning Audi cars, gets an additional 85 hp (62 kW) and 70 Nm additional torque from the 4.0 TDI. The ABT Level Control ensures that the enormous power of now 520 hp and the mighty 970 Nm can be easily controlled even during cornering. The control unit allows the driver to lower their SQ7 with air suspension by up to 20 mm compared to the standard dynamic setting at the press of a button, should they ever get tired of looking out over the other drivers on the road. The advantages of the ABT Sound Control can also be enjoyed by people in the surroundings of the SQ7, at least when the driver presses a button to activate the sporty sound. The tailpipe trims made of a material combination of stainless steel and carbon are a high quality addition to the rear view – which is what competitors are most likely to see of this car.
To ensure that the increased power of the ABT SQ7 is also represented visually, ABT Sportsline offers a range of visual accessories. The wide design aero package includes a front skirt, fender extensions, rear skirt add-ons, rear wing, fender inserts and door strip attachments for a masculine look to match the power. “It’s OK for the car to show off how powerful it is,” Hans-Jürgen Abt, Managing Director of the German company says. To achieve this, the ABT carbon exterior package was completed with a front skirt add-on, door strip attachments and a front grille frame made of carbon. The carbon tailpipe trims and wheels to match the body styling are also available from ABT Sportsline. The 22 inch ABT Sport GR in “matte black” are fitting additions to the ABT SQ7.
The tuning range from ABT Sportsline continues inside the car: The interior of the SQ7 can be upgraded with individual accessories such as integrated entrance lighting, trunk and floor mats as well as with complete packages. The ABT Individual leather interior creates an elegant atmosphere thanks to high quality materials including contrasting seams and the ABT logo. The second package, the ABT Individual carbon interior, brings even more racing feeling into the cockpit. That all conversions and additions are subject to strict quality controls goes without saying at ABT Sportsline. “This means that customers do not have to relinquish the factory warranty to enjoy the full performance of their ABT SQ7,” Hans-Jürgen Abt summarizes.
