Scheduled to go on sale in India in the first half of next year, Audi’s all-new Q7 has already received the tuning treatment from ABT as the full-size SUV has been given a new look for those who are not entirely satisfied with the appearance of the standard model. Known as the QS7, the package brings a more aggressive front skirt and a set of door strip attachments which make the second-gen Q7 look more masculine when viewed from its side profile.

The beefed up appearance is enhanced by a custom rear skirt set and a newly developed sports exhaust system that has four tips flanking a prominent rear diffuser. ABT has implemented a roof-mounted spoiler and they also replaced the stock wheels with their own set of 22-inch rims wrapped around in large 305/30 R22 tires.

For those who want their second generation Audi Q7 to look like it is on steroids, ABT is also providing a wide body kit which they say will transform the SUV into the “emperor of the motorway” as a result of slapping on enlarged front and rear extensions on the fenders which will make the Q7 even wider.

To match the aggressive looks, ABT is working on some power upgrades likely for the 3.0 TDI six-cylinder engine which in standard configuration develops 272 bhp and a massive 600 Nm of torque. There could also be a revision for the 3.0 TFSI which in the regular Audi Q7 is good enough for 333 bhp and 440 Nm.

We remind you the new model is up to 325 kg lighter than the old one and has been shortened by 37 mm while width has decreased by 15 mm. Even though it’s smaller on the outisde, space inside the cabin has increased thanks to the MLB evo platform and now there is an additional 21 mm between the first two rows of seats while headroom has increased by 41 mm at the front and 23 mm in the back.
