In the world of “chubby” yet performance-oriented SUVs, the ABT-tuned Audi QS7 is the kind of car that your typical buyer in this segment would be hard pressed to ignore.

What makes it special is the wide-body kit, which consists of fender extensions, a new grille, front spoiler, rear diffuser, four integrated tailpipes plus plenty of carbon fiber bits. On top of that, it’s wearing a set of flow formed 22″ Vossen VFS2-series wheels instead of ABT’s 22″ FR alloys.

This particular QS7 is actually more of a Q7 since it’s not wearing everything ABT Sportsline has to offer for Audi’s new-gen flagship SUV, as it’s missing the available carbon fiber grille as well as the rear wing.

Performance-wise, we could be looking at either a V6 TDI model or the 3.0-liter 333 PS TFSI. The latter can produce 410 PS and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque thanks to ABT’s mods, whereas the flagship 272 PS TDI unit gets taken up to 325 PS and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque.

Unfortunately no pictures of the interior were released, but expect plenty of leather, contrast stitching, ABT logos and perhaps even some carbon fiber inside.
