Audi Q7 get's pimped out with Sportech's Caractere kit

Top tuning outfit Sportech has added a body kit to Audi's imposing Q7 SUV.

The imported Caractere kit promises to boost Audi's station wagon on steroids with more muscular styling.

Sportech can also supply wheel and tyre packages measuring up to 22-inches in diameter, and costing as much as R80 000.

Though the 3.0 TDI engine is potent enough to pull the beast forward, engine software upgrades are also available for the turbodiesel motor.

Sportech claims its software upgrade ensures an increase in outputs of 18 kW and 50 Nm. However, these figures can be boosted even more, to 25 kW and 70 Nm.

Sportech has been involved in the tuning industry for the past 13 years.
