A. Kahn Design has now released its third interpretation of the Evoque, called the 'Vesuvius' Edition. It's a theme the company has used previously on the Range Rover Sport.
The Evoque has been given a very distinctive appearance from the outset with the help of Vesuvius Orange bodywork, a colour that is also on the car's brake callipers. A matt grey rear diffuser, side vents and front bumper section have been added, helping to create a 'three-colour' scheme that is maintained throughout the car. A. Kahn Design has also fitted the Evoque with a new stainless steel version of its 'Cross Hair' exhaust system.
Uniquely designed 21-inch 'RSXF' alloy wheels have been designed for the Vesuvius Edition, which sit snugly inside the Evoque's wheel arches thanks to its new lowered sports suspension.
Inside, the Vesuvius Orange colour scheme continues around the edges of the seats, the stitching in the door inserts and on the car's dials. As well as their bright surroundings, the seats have been newly upholstered in quilted, perforated leather complete with Alcantara inserts. To add some contrast to the bright orange the car has piano black trim surrounding a diamond gear selector, as well as stainless steel door sill plates and aluminium pedals. The floor mats have also been redesigned, and now sport a black charcoal finish.
The Vesuvius Evoque is on sale now, priced at £48,875.
