A Range Rover Evoque tuned by LARTE Design premium car-tuning firm was named the favorite tuning SUV by readers of the sports car magazine Auto Bild. It was among the vehicles that was recognized during the 2013 “AUTO BILD SPORTSCARS” awards presented at the Essen Motor Show on November 29, 2013.
Making their votes count in nine categories are 77,218 readers. Moscow-based LARTE was able to transform the Range Rover Evoque into a cool street racer, thanks partly to its black-and-red paintwork. Providing the Range Rover Evoque with a sporty attitude are a new PU RIM body kit with the purist honeycomb grille and the massive air intake in the front apron.
The rear of the vehicle features a rear apron made from PU RIM, taking up the front bumper's design while providing a suitable backdrop for the completely redesigned exhaust system.
LARTE also hiked the performance of the Range Rover Evoque's diesel engine from a top output of 140 kW/190 HP to 162 kW/220 HP and from a maximum torque of 420 Nm to 480 Nm.
LARTE also lowered the Evoque's centre of gravity 30 millimeters closer to the road, allowing for better appearance and handling. The tuned Range Rover Evoque also features LARTE's 21-inch light-alloy rims in glossy black.
