Following a late summer facelift, the Audi SQ7 is now even more attractive. Engine-wise, the slightly modified standard V8 diesel still delivers 435 hp (320 kW) and 900 Nm. However, ABT Sportsline dares to up the ante and offer the proud customer the option of a steadfast 510 hp (375 kW), whereby the maximum torque is boosted to 970 Nm. With sports air suspension and progressive steering as standard, the SQ7 with ABT Power performance upgrade delivers superior handling at all times. "The engine and platform have plenty in reserve, providing both impressive power and excellent driveability," explains CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. His company has recently launched an upgrade for the SQ8 with identical specification.

The perfect tuning of the high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC) of course also plays a part and guarantees driving pleasure without remorse. In addition, ABT Sound Control is available for models with factory-fitted active sound system, to create a charismatic individual vehicle sound. If you would like your ABT SQ7 to be instantly recognisable, in 2020 you can pre-order the aerodynamic widebody kit that is currently under intensive development.

Matching ABT Sports Wheels are already available in three different 22-inch variants, namely the Sport GR in glossy black or matt black, the HR Aero in dark smoke and the flow-forming high-performance HR-F in shadow silver. Select your preferred individual combination from these and many other visual finishing options with the ABT Configurator. There are also several interior finishing options available, such as the ABT Start-Stop Switch Cap with illuminated logo or ABT Door Entry Lighting.
