Less than a month after ABT announced its plans to unveil its tuning take on the new Audi A7 at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, the Volkswagen Group specialist has shared the first photos and details on its available packages.

ABT Sportsline offers a variety of power kits for the A7's range of engines. Starting with the 3.0-litre V6 TDI, power is tweaked from 245bhp to 282bhp while a second stage kit that utilises an in-house turbo charger can boost the TDI's output to 310bhp with an accompanying 610Nm of peak torque. For the gasoline lineup, ABT's offering is limited to the 3.0-litre supercharged V6, which gets a jump in output from 300bhp to 410bhp.

External cosmetic upgrades include a front apron along with discreet side skirts and a rear apron that makes space for a new set of rectangular-shaped quad tail pipes. The luxury fastback's stance can be further enhanced with a lowering kit and a choice of alloy wheels ranging from 19 to 21 inches.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

The 21inch rims does fill up the gaps, but that would just mean a much harsher ride on the S-Line equipped 19inch.

And I now find the rear design a bit on the clumsy and heavy side now.
