If you’re not like me, you probably like the Audi Q7. You might actually like some tuning kits that were made up for it.
If that’s who you are, you may actually enjoy the new kit British tuner Project Kahn has come up with. I appreciate the thinking behind the kit, but still don’t like the car.
Trying to get beyond my preconceptions isn’t helped by the engine chosen by the British tuner for this new creation, it’s the 3.0 liter TDI.
The engine wasn’t modified, teamed with a sports exhaust, blessed with an ECU remap or anything of the likes. It’s the same 3.0 liter V6 diesel that Audi ships from the factory.
Where the changes did happen is with the look and feel of the Audi Q7. The biggest change from the outset is the wide body kit Kahn have fitted to the exterior.
After that, the 22 inch, inhouse built, RSX alloy wheels are considerably striking and finally we get to the mix of colors.
The pearl white hue of the body is even more noticeable when the enormous gunmetal grey wheels are underneath it.
Inside the Project Kahn tuned Audi Q7 we find a bit of a different touch. No more enormous wheels, no more in your face body kits and no more unusual paint finishes.
Everything is serene, the leather is black like most of the interior. Some red stitching and accents bring a little bit of color to the mix, but not that much.
Then we get to the really unpleasant business of money. In this trim and spec, an widened Audi Q7 3.0 TDI costs a few grand short of the magic 100.000 dollar border.
