For the 12th time, Europe’s biggest sports car magazine announced the “AUTO BILD SPORTSCARS” of the year. The prizes were presented to the winning carmakers and tuners at the Essen Motor Show on 29th November 2013. Before, 77,218 readers had made their choice in nine categories. The Range Rover Evoque from LARTE Design became the favourite tuning SUV.
The Moscow-based premium car-tuning company combines eye-catching designs with high-end products sourced mainly from German OEM manufacturers. LARTE has discreetly moved the vehicle in the direction of a cool street racer, which also finds its expression in the black-and-red paintwork. The new PU RIM body kit with the purist honeycomb grille and the massive air intake in the front apron creates a correspondingly sporty character. The viewers' eyes are met at the back by a rear apron made from PU RIM, which takes up the front bumper's design while simultaneously creating the appropriate backdrop for the completely redesigned exhaust system.
The performance of the top diesel engine was increased to deliver a full 162 kW / 220 HP instead of the previous 140 kW / 190 HP while the maximum torque was simultaneously also raised from 420 to 480 Nm. Moreover, the Evoque's centre of gravity has been shifted
30 millimetres closer to the road, which improves both its appearance and handling. LARTE's 21-inch light-alloy rims in glossy black also contribute to the success of the proportions. However, customers who prefer a little bit more understatement also get their perfect Evoque from LARTE.
