Milton Keynes-based Urban Automotive is first to produce styling changes for Land Rover’s latest SUV

The first aftermarket kit for the Range Rover Velar is on sale now, with initial deliveries of completed cars due in December.

Produced by Milton Keynes-based Urban Automotive, the so-called Velar GTS kit includes changes to bodywork, as well as new alloy wheels and a switchable valve exhaust system.

Urban Automotive has produced carbonfibre front and rear bumpers, with new designs that are more aggressive than the standard parts. There is also a new front splitter, as well as bespoke daytime running lights.

Wheel arch extensions are added along with 23in forged alloy wheels, widening the car’s stance. Enlarged, aluminium exhaust surrounds add to the car’s increased scale.

Urban Automotive has received 14 orders for cars already, and expects its first finished examples to reach customers by December. The standard Velar costs from £44,830, and the company said the average kit costs an extra £20k over the price of the car.

Fourth Range Rover model has abundant style but how much breadth of ability does the Velar really have?

Chav-tastic!

That third pic is particularly laughable. Seems the era of downsizing i.e. smaller capacity and fewer cylinders is counteracted with bigger exhaust pipes and more of them.

I can sense Gerry is already looking for his lawyers phone number now... After all, he did promise to put all of these 'people' out of business...

Unbelievable truly appalling how can anyone think that this is an improvement to the Velar already not the most subtle of JLR's creations,at the very least it should invalidate the manufacturer's warranty

invalidate the warranty? With just an exhaust? Jlr gotta prove the mod caused the fault to wriggle out the warranty

Im not a fan of overtly ostentatious cars, but there is something rather appealing with the orange 'Urban' Velar.  Perfect if you play for Dundee United.

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided
