Range Rover Evoque by LARTE is favorite SUV at Auto Bild awards

Article by Anita Panait, on December 5, 2013

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.

Inspired directly by the LRX concept car – acclaimed for its fresh interpretation of classic Range Rover design cues – the all-new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a product of smart design as realized by meticulous engineering. Of course, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque holds the spirit of the LRX concept while still bearing the core Range Rover values of interior luxury, refined performance and all-terrain capability.

According to Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director, the Range Rover Evoque represents a bold evolution of Range Rover design as it takes on new interpretations of classic Range Rover design cues while remaining faithful to the core Range Rover values.

McGovern remarked that the new Evoque features a very dynamic profile with an athletic stance, as made possible by its rising beltline, a muscular shoulder, and the characteristic taper to the floating roofline. Helping accentuate the car’s dynamism are its wheels-out stance, as complemented by its wide wheel arches that are softly integrated into the body. Its sculpted corners shortened the Evoque’s visual front and rear overhangs.
