Range Rover Evoque to appear in the next James Bond movie

Article by Christian A., on October 28, 2011

It appears that Agent 007 is ready to test the new Range Rover Evoque in its next movie. According to MSN Cars’ sources a Range Rover Evoque was delivered to Pinewood Studios, the home of the Albert R. Broccoli 007 Stage.

Although the British brand owned by Indian Group Tata Motors didn’t want to confirm the fact, we do admit that a getaway in a Range Rover Evoque sounds very good for us an we’d like to see this in the next 007 movie.

Still, as you may know already, Land Rover models appeared in older James Bond movies and we could mention the custom Range Rover convertible in Octopussy, a Land Rover Defender in The Living Daylights and the Range Rover Sport driven and crashed by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale.

Although we don’t expect the convertible Evoque to appear in the next 007 movie, we do expect to see the most powerful version powered by the new 2.0-litre Si4 petrol engine delivering 240 hp and capable to sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 7.1 seconds.

The new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has been inspired by the LRX concept car that provided a fresh interpretation of classic design cues of the Range Rover. By employing a smart design and meticulous engineering, Land Rover was able to transform the spirit of the LRX into reality without any compromise in refined performance, all-terrain capability and interior luxury – all core Range Rover values.

According to Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern, the Range Rover Evoque represents a bold evolution of Range Rover design by embracing fresh interpretations of classic Range Rover design cues as well as by staying true to the core Range Rover values. He noted that the Evoque features a very dynamic profile shaped by its rising beltline, muscular shoulder, and a characteristic taper to the floating roofline.

Range Rover Evoque features a powerful, sporty and purposeful stance that is augmented by pushing the wheels out to the four corners. These elegantly sculpted corners help shorten the Evoque’s visual front and rear overhangs. The car also features wide wheel arches that have been softly integrated into the body. As expected of the Range Rover, it comes with a luxurious interior that has been flawlessly crafted and elegantly designed interior with the use of premium quality materials.

In addition, customers are given free hand to lavishly appoint the interior of the Evoque – particularly on the instrument panel, doors and seats -- with soft, premium leather with twin-needle stitching for more premium look and feel. Providing the needed interior highlights are exquisitely crafted and authentic metal finishes that visually convey the superior interior quality of the luxurious compact SUV.

McGovern added that the interior’s strong and simple architecture is manifested by the bold intersection between the instrument panel’s solid horizontal elements and the center console’s dynamic vertical lines.
