For over 38 years the name nothelle has been synonymous with a passion for engineering excellence. The Q7 is the latest addition to the Audi family. nothelle from Ratingen, Germany, has already for the launch laid its hands on this model and has enhanced it both visually and in terms of its power and dynamism.

The Q7 initially starts out with two engines, namely a large three litre turbo diesel, the 3.0 V6 TDI with 500 Nm torque and 171 kW (233 bhp), in addition to the large 4.2 litre V8 petrol engine with 257 kW (350 bhp). With a kerb weight of 2.3 tonnes, it is hardly possible to talk about powerful motorisation here. As such, every additional ounce of brake horsepower and Nm of torque would produce superior locomotion.

Consequently, nothelle boosts the power of both these engines. After passing through the hands of the engineers from nothelle, thanks to chip fine-tuning or the installation of the N TRONIC BOX©, the 3.0 TDI generates an impressive 300 bhp and exerts 600 Nm at 2,500 rpm on the crankshaft. The prices for these power enhancements are between 1,100 (chip fine-tuning) and 1,500 euros (N TRONIC BOX) and comprise a two-year warranty.

nothelle generally offers three forms of power enhancements with differing characteristics.

The first step of possible modifications offered by nothelle is the N TRONIC BOX©, the intelligent powerbox for Diesel-engines. It is an additional ECU, which provides a significant but not excessive power boost.

A similar output of power provides the chiptuning variant LEADERCHIP©, designed for the ambitious driver, who wishes more controlled power. The car releases its full potential but stays always superior with showing constant running smoothness. On balanced values, the engine now offers a significantly improved torque and more power. It’s the diplomate among the tuning-chips with untamed aplomb.

As a third alternative nothelle offers the BULLCHIP©, a power increase for drivers with sporty ambitions. It is caracterized by a full release of power, breathtaking torque and incredible acceleration. It is the “beef-cake” among the tuning-chips.

All the power enhancements are of course also available for vehicles with diesel particulate filters. For all the developments, nothelle pays particular attention to ensuring that the latest exhaust emission standards are observed.
