Custom tuning house showcases modified pick-up version of the Range Rover
20 April 2015

Custom tuning house Startech has unveiled a modified Range Rover pick-up, which it calls "the most exclusive pick-up in the world".

It's powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with 519bhp. The 0-62mph sprint is said to be cracked in 5.3sec and it has a top speed of 155mph.

The bespoke kit from the customisation arm of tuning firm Brabus consists of 23-inch forged alloy wheels, a muscular bumper design and a carbonfibre bodykit.

Its interior also gets the Startech treatment, with seats cloaked in leather and alcantara, and carbonfibre trim colour co-ordinated with the exterior paintwork.

The tuner states that in order to maintain the same torsional rigidity as the donor car, more than 100 parts have been added from carbonfibre, steel and aluminium.

With the tailgate closed, the pick-up has a loading bay of 43.3in, while another 24in is available with the remote-controlled electronic tailgate lowered.

Our Verdict

The fourth-generation Range Rover is here to be judged as a luxury car as much as it is a 4x4

The U.S. manufacturers gave up on making four-door pick ups based on the SUVs a few years ago. Thankfully...

Suits this disgusting think admirably. Anyone daft enough to actual buy one (what's it going to be used for? - loading hay to feed the horses?)
should not be allowed any other colour - so that they can stand out in the crowd and be noticed how boorish they are and how fat their head is together with their wallet

And yet they'll have achieved something that you appear to crave : amassed enough money to be able to choose the car and other things they want in life rather than what they gave to settle for. You're the boorish one with your reverse snobbery.

I'd be quite happy to be daft enough if it meant I had the fat wallet. Never knock choice, you don't have to buy one - I certainly wouldn't - but why get so angry/jealous of those who may.

I am absolutely famous for never being in any way jealous over enything - thats for small kids. Angry - yes I can live with that though as it is always out and seen in a not unpleasant manner which is more than can be said for most

I know many here also may still be in another blog/webinar on CAR - and some of you may remember Johnny - he and I got booted because we were very outspoken.
Well the poor guy is now WALKING from Gibraltar to Guernsey, and occassionally finds a 50p coin - its that bad. I admire him though because a couple of us clubbed together and offered him a free plane ticket - but he is determined to take huis punishment. Not that I think he will change or learn much - but I do admire his guts, thats a long walk and he has covered the first 400 miles without a single lift, seems the Spanish dont pick up any hitchers. There but...as they say
