If you’ve got your eye on the upcoming, not-yet-revealed Audi S7 but simply can’t wait for its official release, then the folks over at ABT Sportsline may just have an answer for you.
Yes, the German tuner has put together a new package for the A7, raising the power output of the 55-badged derivative's 3,0-litre petrol engine and slapping on a set of 22-inch alloys.
Using the recently launched Audi A7 55 TFSI as a base, the package includes an ABT engine control unit for the twin-turbo 3,0-litre V6, increasing its power output from the stock 250 kW and 500 N.m of torque to a healthier 313 kW (admittedly a little short of the outgoing generation S7's 331 kW) and 550 N.m. That’s a 25% increase in power and 10% increase in torque, for the maths addicts among you.
ABT hasn’t included any performance figures for its tuned A7, but the modification does come with a 36-month warranty. Those who want a power upgrade on the TDI variant will have to wait a little longer as ABT says it is still developing a package for Ingolstadt's oil-burner.
If you desire a more aggressive look for your A7, there is also a catalogue of alloy wheels from which to choose, including 22-inch FR and GR designs that ABT claims create “the perfect look”.
