Range Rover Evoque with Victoria Beckham will use Bridge of Weir Leather for its interior

Article by Anita Panait, on July 30, 2012

The new Range Rover Evoque Special Edition will use Bridge of Weir Leather for its interior. This is the product of a collaboration with Victoria Beckham. The new Range Rover Evoque Special Edition comes in a matt-finish Stornoway Grey, complemented by Santorini gloss black roof and wheels. The wheels feature rose gold accents around the 20-inch rims.

The new Range Rover Evoque Special Edition also features sports seats that are finished in semi-aniline Vintage Tan leather from Scotland’s Bridge of Weir.

The same leather also covers the door inserts, armrests and central storage box lid. The leather seats feature bold, hand-finished ‘baseball’ stitch detail, as chosen by Victoria Beckham as a whimsical reference to her husband, David Beckham.

The special edition of the Evoque, overall, carries interior features as masterminded by Land Rover Design Director Gerry McGovern and with Designer Brand of the Year 2011 Victoria Beckham. The celebrity described the new Range Rover Evoque Special Edition as luxurious but with a classic edge and contemporary feel.

Victoria Beckham also described the new Range Rover Evoque Special Edition to GQ magazine’s Jason Barlow, remarking that the vehicle is “gorgeous.” Only 200 samples of the three-door, coupe-styled Range Rover Evoque Special Edition will be produced, with the first deliveries to the United Kingdom set to be completed in October.

When the LRX concept car was first unveiled, it received wide acclaim mainly for showing a new interpretation of the design cues the classic Range Rover was known for. It is not surprising then to know that this same concept car was the inspiration for the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. To turn the concept to a production version, it was important that detailed engineering go hand-in-hand with having a smart design.

However, it had to be done in a way that would not compromise any of the brand’s core values particularly the all-terrain capability, refined performance, and luxury on the interior. This new model manages to do just that and looking on the inside, customers will definitely see a luxurious interior that has been beautifully crafted. As expected from a Range Rover, the interior has an elegant design and makes use of premium quality materials.

Going to the exterior, the Evoque is able to get a more purposeful stance by having the wheels pushed out to its four corners. Despite being wide, the wheel arches have been incorporated softly to the body. Meanwhile by carefully sculpting the corners, it allowed the visual overhangs for both the front and the rear to be reduced.

Land Rover Design Director Gerry McGovern shared that the Range Rover Evoque signals a daring progress of the design, considering that it managed to implement a new interpretation of the design cues of the brand while remaining loyal to the core values.

The new Evoque, he added, has that unique narrowing to the floating roofline, a muscular shoulder which goes through the length of the vehicle, and the rising beltine. McGovern continued that what this means is the Evoque is able to have a dynamic profile while also showing a sporty and powerful stance.
