Introducing the Audi Q7 Widebody, a new tuning package from JE Design incorporating a comprehensive list of aero and performance upgrades. The kit comes completely bolt-on and supports the Q7 S line and the upcoming SQ7 variant.
In the aero department, the Q7 gains a new front apron, widened fenders, roof spoiler, rear lip and beefy side skirts. The full aero package will set you back around $11,200 (AUD). To further compliment design, JE offers a set of custom 22″ wheels with 295/30 tyres specifically designed to fill out the widened flares. The wheels don’t come cheap, you’ll be looking at around $6,500 (AUD) for the set.
In the rear, a new exhaust setup gives the vehicle a throatier sound. Visually, customers have a choice between round tips or the AMG style quadrangular pipes. Both setups flaunt a quad pipe configuration.
Adding to the aggressive demeanour, JE can supply an ECU tune bumping the Q7 3.0 TDI turbo diesel from a modest 200kW and 600Nm torque to an impressive 240kW and 685Nm. Obviously, the tune doesn’t come free, or cheap, it will set you back a further $3,000 (AUD). JE Design stands by their work providing a 2-year warranty on the engine, driveline and gearbox.
A similar upgrade will make its way to the SQ7 when it becomes available. The stock 4.0-litre turbo-diesel V8 produces 320kW and 900Nm of torque. JE claims they will be able to push the engine in excess of 384kW with a further increase in torque.
All said and done, to get the full widebody kit with all the spoils, you’ll be looking at spending around the $21,000 (AUD) mark depending on exchange rate placing the kit in the same league as Prior Design and Tra-Kyoto.
