Audi Q7 Facelift by Hofele-Design

Specialists from Hofele-Design have decided to turn the facelift version of the Audi Q7 into the STRATOR GT 780. Of course it is not sure yet, maybe owners will prefer to continue calling it Q7 and not the new, longer, weirder name the tuners have prepared. In any case, get ready to see a new face of the full-size luxury SUV, and soon.

When it comes to aesthetics we have to mention the program includes a new front bumper with larger intakes and four additional lamps on the corners, front and rear wheel-arch extensions with matching side skirts, with also a roof spoiler, front fender air vents and last, but not least a wide rear apron with a diffuser. So as you can see, the carmaker has everything for everyone. The kit developed for the facelift version of the Audi Q7 is installed to the serial points of attachment and it is partially glued onto the car. The starting price was established at EUR 6.900 for the German market and this means around $ 9.300 considering the exchange rates from today.

Hofele-Design has some more information on the fresh, new kit. According to them, the Audi Q7 owners should try and get the quad tailpipes and also the Reverso II alloy wheels which in fact are available in two diameters. So, if you are interested to know, the wheels can be found with 20- and 22-inches. When it comes to the interior, the engineers have offered a new bi-color leather interior that contains stitched elements and ornamental seams for the seats. The arm rests, the door panels and steering wheel are all available as new.

The tuner offers an electrical lowering module that can drop the ride of the car by 40 mm at speeds of up to 80 km/h. Of course, all diesel and petrol engines receive an upgrade from Hofele-Design. For example, the output of the 3.0-liter TDI increases to 314 horsepower, up from 242 horsepower.
