PPI Design celebrates its fifth anniversary in 2010. The German company owned by Dr. Benjamin Abraham created the ICE GT program for the Audi Q7 celebrating five years in the world of tuning.
The Q7 got a proper treatment. First of all the exterior color is unique to the German SUV. The body kit includes a new front bumper, hood, rear spoiler and several matt silver, matt blue and matt carbon fiber parts.
PPI offers 22 or 23 inch wheels. A ceramic brake system and a PPI ceramic brake pads are available up on request.
ECU upgrades are only available for the 6.0 liter V12 diesel and 4.2 liter V8 engine. The diesel engine produces up to 1300Nm of torque and sprints from 0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds. The conventional 8-cylinder petrol engine produces 850Nm. The sprint is 0.1 seconds slower.
The refinements continue on the inside. The head liner has been changed to Nubbuk leather and includes two color matching lines running from the front to the back. The ICE blue and fluorescent pearl white trim is used throughout the cabin.
Other parts incorporated into the interior design are aluminum pedals, aluminum door sills, a PPI steering wheel, a refrigerator in the center console and two pillows. In the head rests you may have spotted two screens complementing the in-car entertainment system.
The PPI ICE GT is limited to only five pieces. Price is between € 200.000 and € 275.000 depending on the options chosen. People who already have a Q7 can contact PPI Design directly. A full conversion is done in only six weeks.
