Victoria Beckham and the Range Rover Evoque
Let us first detail exactly what you're getting with the New Victoria Beckham Special Edition Range Rover Evoque. It will feature hand-finished matt grey paint with contrasting gloss black finishes on the roof, side wheel arches and wheels, which are 20in forged alloys with rose-gold accents.
Inside - and as a ‘tongue-in-cheek' reference to Mr Beckham - is a ‘baseball' stitch detail on semi-aniline vintage tan leather, which also adorns the door inserts, arm rests and central storage box lid. And there you were thinking it would be a sarong.
There's microsuede headlining, mohair mats, a four-piece leather luggage set, and a hand-stitched leather wallet signed by Mrs Beckham - with rose gold accents, no less - for the owners manual. No grubby Haynes-spec DIY nonsense here, thank you.
Says Victoria: "When I first started working with the design team on the Evoque special edition I did a lot of research, and created mood boards to show the team my love of timeless and classic design. I looked at yachts, luxury jets, classic cars, movies, personalities and fashion.
"I want everyone who gets into this car to feel special and empowered by its quality and craftsmanship."
LR design director Gerry McGovern added: "At the first meeting, Victoria herself inspired the use of rose gold. She was wearing dark clothes and no jewellery apart from a rose gold, man's watch. I was struck by the juxtaposition of the masculine watch on a very elegant, feminine wrist."
OK. Underneath, it's a 240bhp, 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine coupled with full-time four-wheel-drive, a six-speed ‘auto box and LR's Terrain Response system. And to be fair to Vicky, it actually looks very cool indeed. Stealthy. Understated. Menacing. And still drop-dead gorgeous.
And because it's limited to 200 units worldwide, it will undoubtedly sell-out, so in one sense the price tag is a moot point. But what a car.
