The Range Rover Evoque Special Edition with design input from Victoria Beckham will cost circa £79,995. At first it will go on sale in China in October 2012 as an example of quintessential British design but if there is interest you will be able to buy the Special Edition Evoque in other markets.
The Range Rover Evoque Special Edition has been designed with both sexes in mind, Victoria wanted it to appeal to both men and women.
The exterior has been given a hand finished matt grey paint finish with unique 20" gloss black forged alloy wheels and rose-gold details, limited solely to this Special Edition.
On the inside the four-seats are finished in a semi-aniline Vintage Tan leather, with a bold ‘baseball’ stitch detail selected by Victoria as a tongue-in-cheek reference to her sporting husband David. The same leather is also used to cover the door inserts, arm-rests and central storage box lid.
Another personal touch is the exclusive and ultra-luxurious floor mats. Victoria explained that when she was a young girl, her father owned a Rolls-Royce and she would enjoy taking her shoes off to sink her bare feet into the thick carpeting. Land Rover’s designers replicated this for her by using mohair, usually reserved for luxury clothing, to make the mats.
Exclusive to the Special Editon there is a four-piece set is based on Victoria’s own luggage range, using the same high-quality internal structure and clothed in hand stitched black leather. The set comprises his and her's wheeled suitcases and wash bags, all of which are lined in the same microsuede used for the roof lining, and as a finishing touch the zip pulls are finished in the same matt grey as the exterior.
There is hand stitched leather wallet, with rose-gold detail containing a guide to the exclusive features of the car is co-branded Range Rover Evoque and signed by Victoria Beckham.
The Range Rover Evoque Special Edition with Victoria Beckham is powered by Land Rover’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine which produces 240PS and 340Nm of torque which is delivered to the wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Owners will benefit from the Meridian 825W audio system with 17-speakers and state-of-the-art amplifiers to create the company’s patented Trifield surround sound which delivers all-enveloping sound to all four seats.
