Victoria Beckham helps design Range Rover Evoque Special Edition [videos]

Range Rover has unveiled the Evoque Special Edition at the Beijing Motor Show.

Jointly created with Victoria Beckham, the model features a matte grey exterior with gloss black accents and unique 20-inch alloy wheels.

The cabin is luxuriously equipped with semi-aniline leather upholstery, a microsuede headliner and machined aluminum / piano black trim. The model also comes with a four-piece leather luggage set and an owner's manual signed by Beckham.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine that develops 240 PS (177 kW / 237 hp) and 340 Nm (251 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system.

Production will be limited to 200 units and U.K. pricing starts at £79,995.

The Range Rover Evoque created the premium compact SUV segment since going on sale in September 2011. Recipient of more than 100 international awards, the Evoque has been an unprecedented global success attracting a whole new group of customers to Land Rover.

Thanks to its unique combination of dramatic design underpinned by the brand's core credentials of capability and luxury, 70% of customers are new to the SUV segment and the Land Rover brand.
Personalisation has formed a key part of the Range Rover Evoque's appeal. Each of the three standard trim levels - Pure, Prestige and Dynamic - can be further individualised with a huge range of options from alloy wheel designs and contrasting roof colours to 16 'Designer Choice' interiors.

Now, Land Rover has extended the principle by offering an exclusively designed Range Rover Evoque Special Edition created as a result of a collaboration between Land Rover Design, led by Gerry McGovern with Victoria Beckham, winner of the coveted Designer Brand of the Year award at the 2011 British Fashion Awards.
Gerry McGovern, Director of Design, Land Rover explains: "The design of Evoque has truly captured the hearts of customers worldwide. Working with Victoria the intention was not to change the fundamental architecture and award winning design of the Range Rover Evoque. We wanted to create a Special Edition that extends its character in a new direction through understated, restrained colour and detail changes.

"Both Land Rover and Victoria Beckham are British luxury brands with credibility and global appeal, this dual 'Britishness' makes the collaboration even more exciting especially when considering the huge audience for bespoke products around the world, particularly in China, Russia and Brazil where Land Rover is growing".

Victoria Beckham said: "I was very excited to be working with Land Rover as I have an enormous amount of respect for the brand. I've always driven a Range Rover, for me they are the epitome of quality and luxury.

"For me you should feel luxury. My brand is known for quality and workmanship and so is Land Rover. So for me it felt like the perfect collaboration."

Is this supposed to excite us for some reason? I guess if you're -for some unthinkable reason - a fan of Victoria Beckham?
