JE Design Goes Widebody On Audi Q7 S-Line

What’s that you say? You’re tired of news about modified versions of the BMW X6? Well we have a treat in store for you! JE Design has transformed the Audi Q7 to a menacing SUV that could possibly rival BMW’s X6 in the looks department. But even with a 20 percent increase in horsepower (from 233-hp to 285-hp), JE Design’s Audi Q7 can’t keep up with a stock X6.

But let’s focus on the widebody exterior with a custom body kit from JE Design. It isn’t reserved for just the S-Line model, but will fit any Q7 body, except for the W12 TDI. The 12-piece wheel arches are $3,500 and the rear bumper extension is $2,335 while front spoilers can be sold separately for widebody or non-widebody applications for $900. For accessories there are eyelids (headlight covers) for $130 and a rear spoiler for $1,425.

The horsepower upgrade comes from the new ECU that’s available for $1,945 and includes a one-year warranty on the motor, turbocharger, gearbox and drivetrain. This warranty can be extended an additional year for just $260.

To round everything off, there is an electronic lowering kit for $1,850 offering a 1.4-inch drop. To fill the wider and larger wheel wells are 22×10-inch wheels with 295/30/22 tires for a hefty $6,740. Interestingly enough though, JE Design simply uses spacers to push the wheels out instead of doing a wider, more aggressive offset applications. Those spacers cost more too – a little lame in our book.

But hey, if you’re looking to beef up your Q7 to keep up with the looks of newer models from other automakers, perhaps this is an option for you!

PRESS RELEASE

With its wide-body construction and increase in performance of more than 20 percent, JE DESIGN transforms the Q7 into an SUV with enormous road presence and increased overtaking power. The 22-inch-wheels and the double exhausts emphasise this impression even more.

To start with the 3.0-litre standard diesel version produces 233 hp (171 kW). By optimising the engine control unit, JE DESIGN raises this figure to 285 hp (210 kW). As a result the maximum torque from the compression-ignition engine increases from 500 to 550 Newton metres and the top speed from 210 to 219 kph. The 2.3-tonne vehicle reaches the 100-kph mark in a mere 8.4 seconds instead of the 9.1 seconds needed by the standard version.

The new software for the engine control unit is provided by JE DESIGN for only 1499 Euro including VAT. This even includes a one-year warranty on the motor, turbo-charger, gearbox and drivetrain and which, for only 199 Euro, can be extended for a further year, as long as the vehicle is not more than two years old and has driven fewer than 100,000 kilometres. In their own workshop in Leingarten, Germany, the optimising process takes only three to four hours.

Alternatively JE DESIGN can have the engine control unit picked up by courier and deliver it again the next day. The vehicle’s assertive road presence is achieved by the wide body design. Using it, JE DESIGN makes the Ingolstadt vehicle take on an enormous width and gives the SUV an aggressive presence. The transformation covers the front spoiler corners which JE DESIGN offers for the Q7 S-Line in pairs, with and without the wide body kit (690 Euro), the twelve-part flared wheel arch kit including the door trim (2699 Euro), and the rear bumper extension with lozenge-shaped double exhaust outlets on both sides (1798 Euro).

The forbidding look facing forward is achieved by the headlight covers (99 Euro). At the rear the spoiler tail unit, which in addition covers the C-pillars (1099 Euro), ensures the required down-force and puts the finishing touch to the uncompromising exterior.

The entire JE DESIGN Wide Body kit is not reserved only for the S-Line models. The engineers at JE DESIGN have developed the wide construction so that it fits on all Q7 models regardless of year of manufacture and the Facelift Model (apart from the W12 TDI).

The electronic lowering (1428 Euro) on the one hand improves the JE DESIGN Q7′s sporty appearance and at the same time heightens the SUV’s passion for bends. At 35 millimetres nearer to ground level, the powerful vehicle definitely provides a livelier ride round bends and obstacles. Inside the extended wheel arches, the SUV-Select 10×22-inch light alloy wheels in particular attract the eye. The graphite-silver rims with the polished edge strip and Ultra-High Performance 295/30-size tyres are available from JE DESIGN for 5190 Euro. The wheel spacers move the wheels at the front 60 millimetres, and on the rear axle 80 millimetres outwards so that they fit flush with the wider body (409 Euro). The steering angle limiter ensures the wheels cannot touch the chassis (49 Euro).

With the Q7 Wide Body kit, JE DESIGN turns the Audi Q7 S-Line into an SUV with overpowering domination on the road. The combination of 22-inch wheels, the lowering and the increase in performance demonstrates the high standards set by the customizer from Leingarten. As is to be expected, JE DESIGN supplies all components with the appropriate TÜV Certificate to ensure registration in the vehicle’s documents without further ado.
