If you’re looking for a high-powered, incredibly peppy ride, you don’t need to turn to the small sport car market. No, you don’t even need to consider getting yourself into an aggressive muscle car, because you can just as easily go roaring down the highway in a SUV. Don’t believe me? Then check out this version of the Audi Q7 that’s been souped up by German tuner Nothelle. They took an otherwise mild mannered utility vehicle and turned it into a 572hp, 531 lbs-ft monster of a vehicle.
By slapping on a twin-turbo kit onto the 4.2 litre V8, this renewed Audi Q7 is said to even leave the highly admired Porsche Cayenne Turbo in the dust, which, by comparison, has 130 hp and 80 lbs-ft of torque less than this behemoth. If you’re not quite that much of a performance junkie, Nothelle has also produced some tamer performance upgrades for the 4.2 litre V8 and the 3-litre turbodiesel as well.
On the aesthetic side of things, they’ve thrown on an aero kit and a set of 22-inch “Novedra” wheels (that are 10-inches wide!) wrapped in 295/30 series rubber.
If you need to ask about price… well, then you can’t afford this.
