STARTECH tunes the diesel version of the Range Rover Evoque
158 kW / 215 hp, 460 Nm and exclusive accessories: STARTECH (Brabus-Allee,
D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 20 41 / 7744 555, fax + 49 / (0)
20 41 / 7744 544, internet www.startech.de), a company of BRABUS
Group, presents a performance-tuned version of the Range Rover
Evoque SD4 in a world premiere at the 2012 ESSEN MOTOR SHOW. The
STARTECH REFINEMENT program is available for all models with three
or five doors, and comprises a sporty-elegant body kit,
custom-tailored 20- and 22-inch Monostar R wheels, a ride height
lowering by 30 millimeters and exclusive interior options.
The STARTECH PowerXtra SD 22 performance kit unleashes the true
power inherent in the 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine of the Evoque
without compromising its built-in safety reserves. The
processor-controlled STARTECH PowerXtra module is designed in ‘plug
and play’ technology and can be installed in less than an hour by
any authorized Range Rover dealer.
With STARTECH PowerXtra SD 22 tuning, rated power output increases
from standard 140 kW / 190 hp to 158 kW / 215 hp at a low 3,500 rpm.
At the same time peak torque grows from 420 Nm to 460 Nm, already on
tap from 2,000 rpm. Performance of the Evoque benefits accordingly:
The STARTECH-tuned Evoque SD4 sprints from 0 – 100 km/h in just 8.3
seconds and reaches a top speed of more than 200 km/h.
The exhaust emissions are exemplary: Like the basic model, the tuned
Range Rover meets Euro V emission standards.
On the road and off the road the STARTECH-tuned turbodiesel engine
delivers excellent performance, but even more importantly,
impressive pulling power and fuel economy figures that despite the
increase in power are at the level of the production car.
The STARTECH engine tuning is backed by the comprehensive STARTECH
warranty of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers (see STARTECH
Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated June 2012).
The STARTECH high-performance brake system, which is available for
all Evoque models, is more than a match for the increase in
performance at all times. The system features vented and
cross-drilled brake discs measuring 365 x 29 millimeters gripped by
4-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the front axle.
For the Evoque the STARTECH designers have developed a styling
program designed predominantly for on-road operations. It lends the
newcomer even more carlike character. All body components are
manufactured in OEM quality from high-grade Pur-R-Rim plastics.
For this purpose new fasciae were shaped for the front and rear that
replace the production bumpers in their entirety. The nose of the
crossover receives a more dynamic profile with striking air inlets,
and the front spoiler that seems to “float” in the STARTECH fascia.
The shape was fine-tuned in the wind tunnel to further reduce lift
on the front axle, which benefits directional stability at high
As homage to the English origin of the SUV, STARTECH offers special
side air inlets sporting the Union Jack.
The appeal of the new STARTECH rear fascia lies in its integrated
diffuser and the distinctively shaped dual STARTECH exhaust
embellishers that are combined with the production exhaust.
The STARTECH rear wing rounds out the markedly sporty appearance of
the refined Range Rover Evoque and furthermore minimizes lift on the
rear axle at high speed.
The STARTECH REFINEMENT design program for the small Range Rover
also includes various custom-tailored wheels. Customers looking for
a wheel with a diameter of 20 inches can choose from the Monostar IV
wheel in size 9Jx20 or the Monostar R design in size 8.5Jx20.
The largest version features STARTECH Monostar R wheels in size
9Jx22. The five-spoke design is available painted silver or in a
version with black painted center and polished contours. The
exclusive wheels can also be painted in vehicle or contrasting
color. They are mounted with high-performance tires in size 265/35 R
The STARTECH sport springs are specifically calibrated to match the
sporty low-profile tires and the production shocks. They are
available for all Evoque models with two-wheel or all-wheel drive,
and lower the ride height of the SUV by some 30 millimeters. The
lowered center of gravity makes the car’s handling even more dynamic
Another focus of the STARTECH REFINEMENT program for this and other
models is on the interior. The program comprises attractive
accessories such as an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel and
aluminum pedals, foot rest and shifter.
It goes without saying that STARTECH fulfills any request for fully
custom interiors in the company upholstery shop. The finest leathers
and Alcantara can be transformed into tasteful interiors in any
color and upholstery design that either offers an extremely
luxurious or a markedly sporty ambiance, depending on customer
preference. To complement the upholstery STARTECH offers a variety
of wood and carbon-fiber trim sets in any desired color and with
various surface finishes.
