Authoritative tuning studio presented its next project based on the hatchback of the seventh series.
Even in the stock version, the Audi A7 Sportback looks very impressive, demonstrating a futuristic design and a sporty coupe-like silhouette. But the love of car enthusiasts for technical upgrades and customization of their cars gives the work of a tuning studio. That shows us ABT Sportsline on the example of the model of the German brand.
The car received from the tuner not only a set of exclusive wheels, which, as a rule, end, most tuning projects, but also other upgrades. Although, in this case, the rims play an important role, emphasizing by their size and design the sporting character of the model – in the studio replaced the standard 20-inch for 22-inch “rollers” with an eight-spoke design.
Recall, under the hood of the A7 Sportback with the index of 55 TFSI is installed a three-liter V6 turbo with a return of 340 hp. and 500 Nm of torque. With the ABT Engine Control chip, the return significantly increases – power by 25%, and thrust by 10% – to 425 hp and 550 Nm. Atelier reports that it is developing a similar upgrade for the diesel version of the model.
The tuner does not report any other changes, although, for most owners, this is more than enough. True, in recent years the popularity of the Group of Seven companies has significantly decreased, for example, if in Europe 10 196 cars were sold in 2015, then in 2016 there are already 9,120 units, and in 2017 sales fell to 6,111. For five months of this year, Audi managed to sell 3,931 pieces.
By the way, recently, ABT Sportsline presented the charged wagon Audi RS 6 Avant with a hybrid power plant, developing power over 1,000 hp.
