Germany's JE Design, those wicked Leingarteners, have finally put a bow on their tuned Audi 4.2-liter V8. And they've done it in context of the Q7 SUV, which they've bulked up with a body kit, 22-inch wheels and suspension kit. A supercharger provides the boost to 500 horsepower (from 350) and 443 lb-ft of torque, along with a water-fed intercooler, sport exhaust up to the header and computer tweaks. The result is zero to 62 mph in 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 169 mph. If there's a footballer or oil scion on your list, consider this one first. [via World Car Fans]
JE DESIGN Q7 WIDEBODY
It has been nearly a year since JE Design released the Audi Q7 Widebody featuring a power boost for the 3.0 V6 TDI engine from 171 kW/233 bhp and 500 Nm to 210 kW/285 bhp and 550 Nm. Now the Volkswagen, Audi and Seat tuning specialists have boosted the 4.2-litre V8.
The regular Audi Q7 4.2-litre packs 350 bhp/440 Nm with a top speed of 151mph(243km/h), and a 0-62mph of 7.4. With the help of JE Design, this power is boosted to no less than 500 supercharged horses and 600Nm of torque, top speed rises to an impressive 169mph(271km/h) with 0-62mph achievable in just 5.6 seconds.
The supercharger conversion includes a water-cooled intercooler, an exhaust system from the manifold, special forged pistons and modified engine management. JE DESIGN also takes care to ensure that the Q7 still complies with the emissions regulations.
Featuring the Powerful wide body styling kit, the Audi Q7 Widebody is rounded off with an electonically lowered suspension and JE Design rims.
* Powerful wide body styling kit
* Performance upgrade to 368 kW / 500 bhp und 600 Nm
* 22-inch wheels and electronically lowered suspension
True to the motto of "everything or nothing", the car styling specialist from Leingarten,Germany, customizes the Q7 to create an impressive car. In addition to the muscular wide body kit, which makes this Audi look even more powerful, JE DESIGN is also offering a performance enhancement, new rims and an electronically lowered suspension.
Brute supercharger power!
2.3 tons of unladen weight are not that easy to gloss over. With that much weight, every scrap of power and every Newton meter of torque counts. The basic specifications of the 4.2-litre Audi Q7 do indeed make quite an impressive read. After all, 257 kW / 350 bhp, 440 Nm at 3500 rpm, a top speed of 151 mph and 7.4 seconds for the sprint from 0 - 62 mph are not exactly chicken feed. But JE DESIGN turns the Q7 into real high-flyer, with no less than 500 supercharged horses (368 kW) rearing and bucking under the hood. 600 Nm of torque, available at 3,850 rpm, propel this heavyweight from a standstill to 62 mph in just 5.6 seconds. And it does not stop till it reaches an impressive 169 mph. The supercharger conversion includes a water-cooled intercooler, an exhaust system from the manifold, special forged pistons and modified engine management. JE DESIGN also takes care to ensure that the Q7 still complies with the emissions regulations. The conversion also includes TÜV certification.
Muscular styling kit
JE DESIGN lends the Audi Q7 greater width and an awesome-looking stance. The styling kit includes headlamp lens caps, which lend the car a more aggressive look. Fitting the impressive front spoiler helps to reduce lift. It can also lend the Q7 greater prestige when overtaking. Also, it is possible to equip this Audi SUV with a set of JE DESIGN twin headlamps, which look far better than the original headlamp design. JE DESIGN enhances the appearance of the rear end by equipping the Q7 with a new tailgate skirt attachment, which incorporates diamond-shaped openings on the right and left. In each of these openings belongs a JE DESIGN dual tailpipe from made permanently shiny, corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
The upper part of the rear end is also spectacular, which JE DESIGN adorns with a wing spoiler tail fin including a C-pillar trim. A feature that is sure to get heads turning. The same also applies to the JE DESIGN fender flare kit "WIDE BODY", for which matching door panels are also available. In front of the rear fenders, air inlets lend the car a sportier look, without appearing "plump". JE DESIGN is offering the muscular look as a complete body-styling kit which is cheaper than buying all single parts piece by piece.
Also when it comes to rims, JE DESIGN does not miss a thing. First off, the tuning specialist offers its complete set of wheels JE DESIGN "361" in the dimension 10 x 22 ET 20 (front) and ET 10 (rear) fitted with size 295 / 30 R 22 Y tires. The rims are also sold separately and are specially adapted to the wide body kit. Secondly, JE DESIGN offers a complete set of wheels AZEV "R-Wheel" in the dimension 10 x 22 ET 50 with size 295 / 30 R 22 Y tires. These rims are also sold separately . For rims with a wheel offset of 50, JE DESIGN recommends using its aluminum track extensions, which add an extra 60 mm width on the front axle and as much as 80 mm on the rear axle.
The fine figure of the JE DESIGN Q7 is rounded off by an electronically lowered suspension, which the car customizer from Leingarten offers for cars with air suspension and which finally helps the JE DESIGN Q7 to morph into a true racing SUV.
