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.
