Besides an ugly body styling kit with the oversized plastic parts making already overweight vehicle look even more Zeppelin-like, JE Design’s new tuning program for the 2007 Audi Q7 also features a significant power boost for the Q7’s 3.0-liter TDI engine. The picture is finished with a set of new 22-inch wheels and electronically lowered suspension.
According to official press release, the German tuning specialist JE Design enhances 2007 Audi Q7‘s diesel engine with a modified engine management system, rising its power output from 233 bhp and torque of 500 Nm to more impressive 285 bhp and 550 Nm.
With the cheap installed, SUV’s maximum speed increases from 210 to 219 km/h (although, it’s still a question, whether any given SUV needs its top speed boosted that badly, if we are not speaking about some HUMVEE-based Hummer H1) and accelerates from zero to 60 in 8.4 seconds (9.1 seconds for an unmodified version).
There is also a complete set of JE Design 361 wheels, in the dimension 10 x 22 ET 20 (front) and ET 10 (rear) fitted with size 295 / 30 R 22 Y tires.
Still no info on price, but, as far as I understand, you don’t need to buy the ugly wide body kit, as well as unpractical low-profile wheels in order to get the engine tuned.
