Limited-edition GTS-X and Evoque 2012 GTS will be the first specialist SUVs to make their Salon Privé debuts
8 August 2012

Range Rover tuner Overfinch will reveal its two new SUV models for the first time at Salon Privé on September 5.

The Overfinch-fettled Range Rover Sport - the GTS-X - will cost from £147,500, with the Range Rover Evoque 2012 GTS priced from £89,995.

Features of the Overfinch GTS-X include daytime running lights, copper orange paintwork, plus colour-coded side panels and vents. The exterior also receives special two-tone badging and 22-inch alloys. 

The GTS-X is powered by a tuned version of the Range Rover Sport’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, which produces 575bhp and 516lb ft of torque. Together with its top speed of 145mph and 0-60mph sprint time of 5.0sec (0.9sec quicker than the car on which it is based), the GTS-X is the most powerful and fastest Range Rover Sport-based model that Overfinch has ever made.

The Overfinch GTS-X features 380mm drilled and ventilated Brembo disc brakes, and the super-SUV’s exhaust system includes a driver-operated electronic valve release to make the sound of the V8 more audible than standard. 

The GTS-X also comes with an electronic lowering module that adjusts the suspension under braking for improved ride quality and stability. Overfinch says the module complements the rear spoiler to increase downforce.  

Inside the GTS-X's cabin, kit includes a full Nappa leather interior, as well as an orange-stitched steering wheel, headlining and door cards. Carbonfibre flourishes are also used on the model’s tread plates and gearshift paddles.

Overfinch revisions to the standard Range Rover Evoque model comprise an 'ultra-violet hued' exterior, plus a Lotus White leather interior and 22-inch alloy wheels.

saw it today near banbury, not my cuppa tea

 

Here's to the crazy ones......

I hope it comes with blacked out windows, i cant imagine anyone in one of these would want to be recognised. 

Personally i would prefer a Dacia Duster

The Range Rover has little place in the market.  Out of the price range of most farmers.

Over engineered for the King's Road & with a appalling reliabilty record.

I grew up driving Land Rovers & Range Rovers 50 yrs ago, and I consider the Range Rover an anachronism - & an unreliable one at that.

For my taste - Zero prestige.  Much better choices for the serious off roader.

The Dacia Duster is an unpretentious, practical off road tool - well said sir.

Even more 'Look at me, every one. I'm a prat and a road bully'

I want a pay rise

Just goes to prove that you can't buy class. Utterly ghastly

Nearly double the price of a regular RR Sport Supercharged.  There is clearly a niche for wealthy stupid people.

The Overfinch body styling package includes daytime running lights, copper orange paintwork, plus colour-coded side panels and vents

wow. Im sold. Well worth 150k.

exhaust system includes a driver-operated electronic valve release to make the sound of the V8 more audible than standard.

Good. Id hate anyone not to notice me.

Overfinch says the module complements the rear spoiler to increase downforce. 

Excellent. Thats the problem with 4x4's. Not enough downforce.

What a monstrosity on every level

HAHA! My thoughts exactly. Also, I know for a FACT, that nothing added to this car has increased the downforce. Not one piece. Also, no wind tunnels were used in the making of this. So I would say they are treading on thin ice with that statement. . . .

...this is appalling. Gordy and useless, one for the "I just wanna be famous" brigade.

Made even more ridiculous by using an old Renault 19 trim level name...
