ABT has revealed a performance upgrade for the 2011 Audi A7 Sportback. The front spoiler and the rear skirt set with the distinctive 4-pipe exhaust unit underline the fact that ABT has placed special emphasis on “sport” with the new A7 Sportback. Both petrol and diesel engines have been upgraded.

“For us the A7 is a car whose optical qualities also must be reflected in its driving performance”, explains Christian Abt. The General Manager of the traditional Bavarian company, who is responsible for technical developments, stresses that the A7 has to meet and the high demands of its owner, both as a premium road vehicle and as a sporting machine. This applies to both the 3.0 TFSI and the 3.0 TDI. “We think that the diesel engine suits the A7 perfectly, as it combines torque and unbridled power with the highest possible economy”, says Christian Abt. With ABT POWER the series standard 245 bhp is increased to a powerful 282 bhp. The torque also rises from 332 lb-ft to an impressive 370 lb-ft. The big turbo diesel runs even more powerfully with ABT POWER S: this is because the “in-house” turbo charger from ABT SPORTSLINE is applied and the Sportback therefore brings 310 bhp onto the road. With its powerful torque of 450 lb-ft the machine is both superior and offers high-torque and quick acceleration in every situation. The ABT A7 becomes a real sports car with a petrol engine: thanks to ABT POWER the six cylinders now offer 410 bhp, compared to the series-standard 300 bhp.

ABT offers designer light alloy wheels in the sizes 19 to 21 inch to suit the extravagant Coupé limousine with the practical tailgate. The alloys are, of course, also available in combination with high-performance tyres, so that nothing else stands in the way of driving enjoyment. In combination with the lowering of the air suspension thanks to ABT Level Control, the ABT A7 now sticks to the road even more. Impressive performance, elegance and extravagance now have a new name – ABT A7.
