The Lamborghini Green Evoque by Afzal Kahn

When Land Rover/Range Rover designed the new Evoque crossover SUV, they wanted to appeal to a younger generation of buyer and expand its product lineup with a fresh, modern model that strayed away from their typical big SUVs and came in at a more affordable price point. The new Range Rover Evoque has successfully hit on all of those goals and has been quite successful for the British automaker in the first year of its availability. One British Designer however, wanted to give owners a greater range of customization with the new SUV so he penned a new upgrade program for both inside and out. Afzal Kahn was able to create a more aggressive and completely custom-tailored upgrade program that gives owners of the Evoque a wide range of options.

The first aspect of the Range Rover Evoque that was upgraded was the interior, which was given an array of custom luxury fittings to make it an enjoyable place to spend time. All of the seats were given soft black perforated nappa leather with quilted stitching, lime green inserts, and alcantara. Afzal Kahn opted to cover much of the dashboard, glove box, center console, and center arm rest in black nappa leather and alcantara with contrasting diamond stitching. Even the factory roof lining was replaced with alcantara along with each of the sun visors for a special look. The driver benefits from new machined and vented aluminum foot pedals, green tachometer and speedometer, and a new Churchill clock with Swarovski diamond bezel. Each of the door entry sills are made of stainless steel, piano black rounds off the dashboard trim, and Afzal Kahn’s final touch is the machined aluminum gear selector.

The next step for the Range Rover Evoque was the exterior. Here, the designer gave the SUV a Lamborghini green base color contrasted by gloss black paint. A new range of upgrades was also introduced, featuring a new front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights and a 3-D mesh grille that flows into the widened front and rear fenders. New fender vent inserts give the car a special look and follow the same design language of the stock model. At the rear, Afzal Kahn designed a new bumper with integrated diffuser and exhaust outlets. The final touch was a set of in-house RS-XF wheels with factory center caps in a 9.5 x 22 size at the front and rear axle.

All of the upgrades for the Range Rover Evoque are currently available and can be customized in a variety of colors, designs, and more by the British designer.
