An Evoque based on a British postcode. Yeah, that’s a thing now.[Not a valid template]
Will car makers ever run out of things to base special editions on? Race tracks are understandable. Classic coachbuilders, yeah, ok. But postcodes?
OK, this is not just any postcode. Land Rover‘s new Evoque NW8 is named after the postcode for an area of north west London that’s swimming with creativity – most notably the legendary Abbey Road, home of the eponymous studios and the world’s most famous pedestrian crossing. Unveiled at the Montreal Motor Show in Canada, the Evoque NW8 is part of a range of special editions inspired by British landmarks. Just 1000 will be made.
The NW8 is based on the Dynamic model Evoque, and comes only in Fuji White paintwork, with a Firenze Red roof and matching mirror caps. The Range Rover lettering on the bonnet and tailgate is also red, contrasting with black wheels.
In addition, the headlights and foglamps have been darkened, the rear lights are clear and the wing vents and grille have been finished in black, as have the bumper inserts.
Inside, there’s a choice of leather finishes, unique embroidered headrests and a red driver selector dial with matching paddle shifters. To show off the Abbey Road link, a motif showing the famous zebra crossing adorns the treadplates, seat tags and key fob.
Now all we need are four mop-topped Liverpudlians to walk over it.
