New Audi A7 V6 TFSI, Now With 25 Percent More Power And Oversized Wheels From ABT

ABT’s Audi A7 won’t win a drag race against an RS5 Sportback, but it will get to the finish line in style, and faster than the stock model.

The most important upgraded from the tuner is the addition of their in-house developed engine control unit (ECU), to the 3.0-liter TFSI V6 engine.

Rated at 340PS (335hp / 250kW) and 500Nm (369lb-ft) of torque straight from the factory, it’s now good for 425PS (419hp / 313kW) and 550Nm (406lb-ft) of torque, or 25 percent more, according to ABT.

The extra muscle should help the tuned Audi A7 reach 100km/h (62mph) faster than the stock model, which needs 5.3 seconds, while top speed probably remains the same, electronically limited at 250km/h (155mph).

As for the styling improvements, they’re limited to the aftermarket wheels. This particular Audi A7 rides on massive 22-inch rims made by ABT, in a ten-spoke Y-pattern design. The tuner says other wheels are available, too, from their FR and GR lines, which give the car “a perfect look for a great impression”.

This isn’t the last time we’ll hear about the second-gen Audi A7 Sportback from ABT Sportsline, as they have already announced a similar upgrade for the 3.0-liter TDI diesel engine.

In the 50 TDI model, the V6 makes 286PS (282hp / 210kW) and 620Nm (457lb-ft) of torque, and is paired to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. This model can reach 100km/h (62mph) in 5.7 seconds from a standstill, and is said to burn 5.5 l/100 km (42.8 mpg US / 51.4 mpg UK) on average, according to the NEDC.

    If there’s one thing that Audi does well, it’s wheel design. Not of fan of the aftermarket one’s installed by ABT on this A7, but man the A7 looks nice.

  • An Existing Person

    ABT is one of the few aftermarket tuners I love for the reason that their modifications are very tasteful and not overboard.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Wheels bigger than 19s are unnecessary. If you have to have big wheels, 20s are as big as you ought to go.

    22″ is too large for this car. ABT offers good upgrades for Audi, but these wheels are just bad.

  • SteersUright

    Cool. Looks great. Must ride like total shit on those wheels though. Every car I’ve had with very low profile tires became tiresome eventually.

  • ErnieB

    The A7 on these pics looks stunning! I was not a fan at first but I am a convert after these pics.. the wheels are ok but Audi wheel design is on point.

    This would be a good upgrade for the S5 Sportback.
