It Doesn’t Have To Be The Urus: ABT rolls out Audi SQ7 upgrades
Ever since Lamborghini unveiled its ultra-fast, ultra-expensive SUV named Urus, people on salaries all over the world have been frantically searching for reasons not to buy it. If the above sounds familiar, here’s another compelling reason, brought to you by ABT Sportsline.
The tuner worked its magic on the SQ8 model not long ago (watch the video for an overview), and is now bringing a similar range of improvements to the SQ7 as well. The main course is an aftermarket ECU that boosts the stock eight-cylinder to 650 PS (641 hp / 478 kW) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque. The Italian super-SUV gets the exact same figures from the same engine model.
ABT never bothered to measure sprint times for the SQ7, but the SQ8 can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and only reaches the limit at 270 km/h (168 mph).
Other notable upgrades include a rather restrained body kit, enlarged exhaust tips, 22-inch in-house wheels wrapped in Continental rubber, and an all-black body finish with the only red accents being the calipers and the grille badge.
Buying your very own ABT SQ7 in Germany is a matter of having €121,000+, while the stock car starts from €92,200.
