Act of God
FAB Design's Noreia, which is based on the Range Rover Vogue, doesn't just bear
the name of a goddess. With impeccable elegance the specialists of FAB Design
present a tailor-made Range Rover Vogue in the usual perfect quality. Of course, the
body of the goddess may only be dressed exclusively in the best material: composite
material with a multitude of components made from visible carbon. This refers to the
new front spoiler as well as to the rear spoiler with the recess for the new world
exclusive carbon exhaust tailpipes. Also from the fine material are the extenders,
both on the front as well as on rear wings that bring a huge 60 millimetres of
additional width and with which the new side skirts are connected. The FAB
aerodynamic components impress with their high resilience but with low weight.
Sophisticated forging process guarantees high performance values
The large and wider wheel arches are filled with forged monoblock wheels in sizes of
11 x 23 inches, which are covered with 315/25 size tyres. The time-consuming
production process guarantees the excellent qualities of the high-performance rims.
During the forging process, the material is compressed to a point where all air
inclusions are forced out of the aluminium. So this results in not only particularly low
wall thicknesses, but at the same time extremely high load-bearing capacities and a
weight saving compared to conventional cast wheels of up to 40 percent. So the new
FAB forged aluminium rims also qualify for the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche SUV
Thanks to the FAB lowering module the Range Rover Vogue is now enthroned 40
millimetres closer to the asphalt and the centre of gravity relocated for better driving
dynamics. All performance figures that are worthy of a goddess.
However the special features don't just stop with the ultra-lightweight wheels. Also
the power of the drive unit makes an enormous leap upwards. Thanks to an
optimised control unit and a sports air filter designed as an extra for the Range Rover
Vogue the turbo-charged V8 Supercharged now delivers an impressive 540 hp (397
kW) instead of the serial 510 hp (375 kW). The maximum torque now lies at 670 Nm instead of 625 Nm.
Fine details characterise the new interior ambience
As dynamically as FAB Design have transformed the Range Rover from the outside,
the refiners have presented the interior as just as grand. The extravagant use of
leather, Alcantara and visible carbon gives the cockpit a completely undreamt of
atmosphere. The transformation does not just stop with the front seats and the rear
seating, but also clothes the instrument panel and the door panels as never before. With a flair for fine details accents can be found throughout the interior, be it on the
selector lever of the automatic programme, the high quality pedals made of
aluminium or on the steering wheel.
In the past FAB Design has made a name for itself with exceptionally high-quality
transformations of exclusive sports cars. The refiner now proves, once again, that the
in-house engineering skill and the talented design language can be adapted to a fourseater. Noreia is the irrevocable proof of the fact that individualism and self-confident
style undergo a divine symbiosis at FAB Design.
