    Prefer the look of Audi's Q7 to a Porsche Cayenne? Then German tuner nothelle might just be able to give it performance to match the supercar manufacturer.

    Nothelle has breathed on both of the Q7's powerplants - the 3.0-litre turbodiesel and the 4.2-litre V8. The oil-burner moves from 229bhp and 369lb ft of torque to 271bhp and 442lb ft.

    For the V8, nothelle has developed a twin-turbo conversion that will boost power from 344bhp to a whopping 572bhp, with 531lb ft of torque. That's 130bhp and 80lb ft more than a Cayenne Turbo.

    However, Nothelle hasn't announced revised performance figures - or any pricing for the parts, which are available in stages or in a single hit, and are accompanied by a range of typically aggressive styling tweaks.

  2. Well, it looks terrible, and frankly, I don't see the point of these overpowered monster SUVs.
     
  3. sits somewhere in between the Porsche Cayenne and the Mercdes R-class
     
  4. The Q7 base didn't help getting the job easier...
     
  5. The Q7 looks boss.
     
  6.  
  7. Wow 572 hp in an SUV, this thing will outrun some sports cars.

    But like all other tuned SUVs it begs the question, Why?
     
  8. That looks sexy, I love the bodykit.
     
  9. yup, but i still like the cayenne. also keep in mind that the cayenne turbo is not tuned as such, while the Q7 is(in this case).
     
  10. 572 - 130 = 442


    The Cayenne Turbo doesn't have 442HP...
     
  11. The obvious answer is why not.
     
  12. looks way better than the Porsche Cayenne.
     
  13. Best looking german SUV now.
     
  14. Id rather have the audi, maybe even stock, over the ubiquitous cayenne.
     
  15. I prefer the Cayenne
     
  16.  
  17. the turbo S has 512... the turbo has 450 (?)
     
  18. stock vs modified? that's always a fun argument.
     
  19. I dispise those cars
