Audi Q7 SUV racing spirit with JE Design
Power boost, styling and lower suspension

JE Design styling kit for the Audi Q7: greater width with a bolder stance.

JE Design styling kit for the Audi Q7: greater width with a bolder stance.

APN, PR,
14th August 2006.

It certainly shares technical elements with its two structural brothers, the VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne.

Yet, the new Audi Q7 SUV is far from being just another member of the same platform brotherhood.

Unlike the usual American "carbon copy" marketing of the same model under different brands - with different "liptstick colours" to differenctiate the clones - each of the three German models has it own identity, its own dimensions and especially, it own dynamic footprint.

At the top of the German common SUV project between Porsche and the VW Group which owns Audi, amongst other brands (Volkswagen, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Skoda, SEAT), each of the Cayenne and the Q7 holds a different position.

While the Cayenne is a 5-passenger SUV in Porsche style and performance, Audi's Q7 bridges the gap between the pure sports identity of the Porsche aura, and the top luxury world of brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Lexus, Infinity and the likes.

And yes, you can have the Q7 in the 5-,6- or 7-passenger configurations. Its wheelbase measures no less than 3 metres (5.086-metres long), compared to a 2.855-metre wheelbase for the 5-passenger Cayenne (4.79-metres long) and Touareg (4.75 metres).

What if you like the Audi premium brand image, but with a more radically sports-oriented body and soul?

You can go the Audi options and accessories way, just like you can follow another, and more differentiated path... yes, the tuning path. All the safety of the standard model, but with a differently peppered sauce.

For that, you can trust JE Design, the Audi tuning specialist from Leingarten,Germany, not only for their "square" motto: “everything or nothing”, but for other tangible facts such as the muscular wide body kit, the performance enhancement, the new rims and an electronically lowered suspension.

Engine kit - By means of a modified engine management system, the large 3-litre V6 TDI gets a 22.3 percent power boost, from 171 kW/233 bhp to 210 kW/285 bhp, plus a ten percent torque boost, from 500 to 550 Nm.

The top speed has also increased (4.3%) from 210 to 219 km/h, while acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h has improved from 9.1 to 8.4 seconds, or 7.69% quicker to reach the 100 km/h.

Last but not least, all modifications include a TÜV parts certificate plus full compliance with the EU regulations.

Body styling kit - JE Design styling kit lends the new Audi Q7 greater width with a bolder stance. It includes headlamp lens caps, which lend the car a more aggressive look and an impressive front spoiler that helps reduce lift. Also, it is possible to equip the Audi SUV with a set of JE Design twin headlamps.

At the rear, JE Design equips the Q7 with a new tailgate skirt attachment, which incorporates diamond-shaped openings on the right and left. From each of these openings shines a JE Design dual tailpipe made from permanently shiny, corrosion-resistant stainless steel.

The upper part of the rear end features a wing spoiler tail fin including a C-pillar trim.

The JE Design fender flare kit "Wide Body" can be ordered with matching door panels. In front of the rear fenders, air inlets lend the Q7 a sportier look.

Bought as a complete set, the muscular JE Design body-styling kit, comes cheaper than buying all single parts piece by piece (market-specific price lists can be consulted at the JE Design website).

Rims - First off, JE Design 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.

JE Design offers also another complete set of wheels, the 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 aluminium track extensions, which add an extra 60 mm width on the front axle and as much as 80 mm on the rear axle.

Dynamically, the JE Design Q7 can be rounded off by an electronically lowered suspension, which the Leingarten tuning specialist offers for cars with air suspension and which finally helps the JE Design Q7 to morph into a true racing SUV.
