One of the car spotters we frequently cover, DrGumo from Stuttgart, decided he'd had enough of the Porsches and Mercs he's been filming. He left the the home of the German prancing horse and three-pointed star and went to Kempter, where ABT has its headquarters.

ABT is the biggest maker of VW Group tuning bits and bobs, and they showed him one of their latest, the ABT SQ5. The first "S" sporty SUV from Audi, the SQ5 comes in stock form with a 313 PS 3-liter diesel, which ABT have taken to 360 PS.

This car also has 700 Nm of torque and a brand new body kit. ABT has fashioned chin spoilers, skirts and diffusers to enhance the appeal of the SUV, together with 22-inch alloy wheels. Perhaps more interesting is the fact that this white and black color combo that's earned the nickname "Stormtrooper", after the famous clone army from the Star Wars saga.
