Audi Q7 news - Disorderly Q7 - 2008

Read more on:

You have to applaud the misguided bravado of the guys who
looked at the Audi Q7 and thought, ‘Sure, it’s OK - but couldn’t it do with
being a bit, well, bigger?’ 

This is the aptly named Widebody, a beefed-up, bodykitted Q7
from German tuner JE Design. 

Taking the Q7’s not-especially-modest proportions and adding
fat flared arches and an aero kit, the Widebody promises to make supermarket
parking a physical impossibility rather than merely challenging. 

If you want to get a handle on the sheer size of the thing,
take a closer look at those alloys. They’re 22-inchers, and they look
positively petite. Yes, it’s a big ‘un. 

But road presence ain’t nothing without some grunt to back
it up, so JE Design has taken a spanner to the Q7’s 4.2-litre V8. 

Power is now up at 500bhp, which is enough to see the Q7 to
62mph in just 5.6 seconds before topping out at a frightening 169mph. 

Carbon footprint? It’s better not to ask, but let’s just say
we’re talking size 14 jackboots rather than stiletto heels here.
