Cosworth makeover for the Range Rover Evoque will be launched next year
9 December 2010

British tuning company Project Kahn will equip Land Rover’s new Range Rover Evoque five-door with Cosworth power.

The Kahn Range Rover Evoque powered by Cosworth has been confirmed on the firm's website alongside a solitary teaser image, with no further details revealed by the company. The most likely power source for the Evoque Cosworth would be Ford's 237bhp, turbocharged 2.0-litre Ecoboost unit, complete with a power boost from Cosworth as well as numerous dynamic and styling tweaks.

Sales of the standard five-door Evoque commence next summer alongside the three-door model. The five-door Evoque gets the same engine line-up as the three-door (148bhp or 187bhp 2.2-litre turbodiesels and a 237bhp 2.0 petrol turbo) and is available in both two and four-wheel drive.

The lower-powered, front-drive diesel three-door returns real-world fuel consumption close to 50mpg, with CO2 emissions below 
130g/km. The five-door, which has slightly more frontal area as well as the extra weight, is expected to be rated below 135g/km.

Our Verdict

Range Rover Evoque

The Range Rover Evoque draws heavily on style as a selling point, but also possesses the substance to back it up

Oh dear. Is that Sharon's 21st century XR3i?

great - another gauche faux carbon clad nightmare to add to the former drug trafficker/respectable car tuner's hideous back catalogue of styling atrocities.

[quote philcUK]he former drug trafficker[/quote] If ur dealer uses an Evoque, chances are his yayo is whack, so next time u need drugs find a dealer with a proper range!!

trafficker not dealer - although launderer would be probably a more accurate description of the business model before it became a car tuner/'stylist'.

he wasn't known as the 'Snowman' around Bradford because of a Cure like complexion or Aled Jones leanings.

Still - didn't stop him winning countless Chamber of Commerce awards for business without actually having to do much (legitimate) business.

Oh dear oh dear oh dear, just the sort of wheels for the person who thinks that they need a different sort of attention seeking hot hatch. The Cosworth decal down the side says very tacky.
