The uniquely designed crossover Evogue is the Range Rover’s newest and smallest model and has received an on-road oriented tuning package for both the three- and five-door versions of the car from Startech, a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz specialist Brabus. Ths new version of the Evogue will make its debut this week at the 2011 Dubai International Motor Show.
As far as looks are concerned, this pcakage proves itself to be really generous, including front grille, newly shaped front and rear bumpers, spoiler and air inlets that are said to have been fine-tuned in the wind tunnel to reduce lift on the front axle at high speeds. Also featuring on the Startech-tuned Evoque are the new tailpipes that can be fitted to the standard exhausts or Startech’s own stainless steel muffler and the integrated rear diffuser.
The height of the car has been lowered by 35mm , having the standard wheels replaced by 21-inch Monostar R five-spoke forged alloys fitted with high-performance 265/40 tires. The option for 20- or 22-inch wheels is also vailable for the customers.
The interiour has also beenlooked at, now being upgraded with custom upholstery made of leather and Alcantara not only in the demonstration car’s black and white livery, but also in any color and design the customer prefers. Wood or carbon fiber trim finish off the Startech treatment.
Now, the engine. The Startech-tuned Evoque is powered by a performance kit for the SI4 2.0-liter gasoline engine, which has a standard output of 240HP, and which is still in development. But details will be available sometime, so we will stay tuned.
