The Range Rover Velar, the 2017 addition to the Range Rover family, filling the white space between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, is a striking beauty with great recognition value.
Mansory, the luxury car modification firm based in Brand, Germany, still manages, however, to add tailor-made additional dynamism, presence and elegance to the four-door crossover SUV with stylishly integrated carbon car body components. Shapely alloy wheels, powerful performance improvements, as well as additional select components complete the exclusive customisation.
Mansory tuning relies on the ultralight and highly tensile material carbon for all its body modifications: striking extensions from the front spoiler via the mudguards, side sills and door panelling all the way to the rear apron with diffuser insert all meet the most stringent OEM quality standards. The lightweight bonnet, roof spoiler, trims, wing mirror casings and radiator cowling all convince with their perfect surface quality.
But it’s not just the appearance that gets a sporty upgrade: Mansory offers bespoke performance enhancements for all Velar standard engines. The combination of optimised control electronics and a stainless steel sports exhaust system results in additional power fo a whopping 45 hp after fine tuning.
The 22- and 23inch Spyder light alloy wheels guarantee safety and elegance in all driving conditions. The one- piece forged wheel convinces with a high load capacity at low dead weight. Thus the Velar reacts even more agilely and realises every steering command, even under the highest load. In XXL format, the 11×23” wheels
are fitted with high performance tyres with dimensions 315/25R23.
To allow the driver and passengers to fully enjoy the drive in the Mansory Velar, a skilfully refined interior awaits. Most any desire is met thereby: Anodised aluminium pedals form part of the Mansory range of accessories, just as illuminated door sill trims, foot mats with exclusive embroidery, and a customised full leather interior.
Range Rover Velar was unveiled on March 1, 2017. In 1970 Land Rover launched the original Range Rover. Elegant simplicity, a visually reductive approach and all-new consumer technologies are the hallmarks of the model.
Land Rover Chief Design Officer, Gerry McGovern, said: “We call the Velar the avant-garde Range Rover. It brings a new dimension of glamour, modernity and elegance to the brand. The Range Rover Velar changes everything.”
Refined for every occasion and for various terrains, the Range Rover Velar uses unique sustainable materials and advanced engineering to continue Land Rover’s drive to go Above and Beyond.
The origin of the Velar name (pronounced vel-ar) dates back to the first Range Rover prototypes of the Sixties: the pioneers of the luxury SUV landscape.
When development engineers needed to hide the true identity of the 26 pre-production Range Rover vehicles, they chose the name Velar, derived from the Latin ‘velare’ meaning to veil or cover.
