Images released by CEO Trevor Musgrave shows important features of the Onyx Range Rover Aspen Ultimate Series. These include a 22 mm wider wheel base, an exterior package made of carbon and polycarbonate, and of course, the V8 5 .0 litre Sc wide body capable of 625 bhp. The new upgrades has resulted in the Onyx Aspen having a more stunning effect to the exterior design by fashioning a visual feast showing the best of European sculptured styling.
The exterior is also decorated with wide array of carbon fiber features to date in luxury cars through the mirrors, aero fins, diffuser, front air dams, and pillars, all getting the treatment. The objective was to design a vehicle that would not just see change in the aesthetics but at the same time work in harmony with the basic capabilities of the marque thereby increasing the aero efficiency through power gains under strict wind tunnel testing for each component.
This somewhat radical cosmetic change on the exterior of the Onyx Aspen is bound to make many customer delighted especially those who want a personalized individual leading marque but still retain on and off road prowess.
The exterior thus continues to stay loyal to the earlier Onyx Aspen designs while having one of the most lightweight and comprehensive products that are available today in the market. The front, sides, rear, and bonnet have all received upgrades to stunning effect.
With the ride height lowered by 25 mm and the track widened, this particular upgrade ensures additional 12% stability when cornering. This works well in harmony and help in accommodating the step forward needed to have an additional gain in power. The diesel model for example has already been in production and the 1st Onyx Sport San Marino edition was showcased in SEMA, Las Vegas.
The Onyx Aspen will also have 2 versions with the Aspen Ultimate have a wide body and the Aspen Rogue having a narrower body. The visual differences however continues be unlimited as there are different variations to the personalization options that the Onyx Aspen gives allowing clients to create their own version with relative ease.
The Onyx Aspen is already out in the market though 250 units were pre-ordered at its European facility prior to the official launching. The goal of Onyx was to be able to release 1,000 personalized vehicles in 2014 in cooperation with 47 official dealers round the world.
