In order to enhance the image of the Range Rover Evoque, Afzal Kahn decided that it’s time to build a new body kit for the popular crossover. RS250 Range Rover Evoque is the name of Kahn’s project and looking at the first sketch we can say that we are already impressed with it.
Set to make its debut in July 2012, the RS250 Range Rover Evoque will be released via a stage 1 and stage 2 package.
The first stage will include: an RS front bumper with integrated fog lamps and 3D mesh inserts as well as daytime running LEDs in the lower front bumper section.
Furthermore, we find an RS rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and stainless steel twin central crosshair exhaust system; an RS lower bootlid spoiler; RS front grille with 3D mesh; lowered suspension springs; painted roof stripe; painted bonnet stripe; 22-inch RS-XF alloy wheels; tinted windows.
The second stage includes: RS complete wide wheel arches; RS roof spoiler; RS side skirts. The engine will also be upgraded but unfortunately there are no details available right now.
Inspired by the LRX concept, the Range Rover Evoque drew international acclaim for its exciting new interpretation of the traditional Range Rover design cues.
With its intelligent design combined with meticulous engineering, the Evoque allowed the spirit of the LRX concept to be turned into reality without compromising the core Range Rover values of luxury, superb performance and all-terrain capability.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director, stated that the Evoque marked a bold evolution of Range Rover Designs by adopting a new take on classic Range Rover design, all the while staying true to the company’s core values. Moreover, he stated that with Evoque’s dramatic rising beltine (muscular shoulder running the length of the car) and its distinctive taper to the floating roofline, the Evoque makes use of a highly dynamic profile with a bold and athletic stance.
The purposeful stance was created by pushing the wheels out to the corners, reducing the overhangs. Its wheel arches are wide, while being subtly integrated into the body.
Premium quality materials were incorporated in the production; maintaining an elegant, timeless design expected of a Range Rover interior.
