ENCO Audi Q7 3.0 TDI Looks Like a V12
Embarrassed you only have the measly 3.0 TDI Audi Q7 SUV? The tuner ENCO has your answer. They’ve taken the original front and back-end from a high-end Q7 V12 model and stuck it on the 3.0 TDI, making it look more aggressive and expensive. The ENCO press release for this SUV says “The giant radiator grill looks like a mouth ripped wide open from the inside mirror, which seems to want to ‘absorb’ small cars in front of it.” Nice.
The wheel arches have been widened, giving the SUV a wider stance. ENCO added their own GT bonnet (hood, for us Westerners,) made from lightweight carbon fiber and covered in a matte black finish. ENCO also added their own 23-inch wheels painted black chrome, and wrapped them in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires for higher performance. ENCO snagged the ceramic brakes from a Porsche Cayenne SUV and threw them on as well, ensuring the Q7 stops on a dime.
Inside, they’ve finished the Q7 in a bronze carbon look on the dashboard, center console, door trim, and steering wheel. I’ve never seen orange carbon fiber, and it actually looks pretty cool. ENCO’s Q7 also comes standard with a multimedia system including satellite TV, DVD player, video game console, and head rest LCD monitor.
Price? Don’t expect it to be cheap. For the whole shebang, ENCO will charge you €38000, or over $51,000 USD. Holy crap! Take a look at more pics below:
