Italian tire manufacturer, Marangoni, has been down the tuning road before, having performed some previous projects on vehicles like the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

Today, Marangoni is back with another program, this time for the Range Rover Evoque. As comprehensive projects go, this one’s definitely right up there and the unmistakable work done on the Evoque speaks volumes about the talent of these guys.

For the exterior’s styling, Marangoni collaborated with TRC Italia in dressing up theEvoque with a special fine grain Titanium Fluid Metal paint finish. The front grill, hood vents, and door handles were then painted in gloss black to provide a contrasting look to the body of the Evoque. Other panels that were modified include the front bumper fascia, door lower moldings, and rear bumper fascia, which were also given a carbon diffuser. Speaking of carbon, Marangoni also gave the Evoque plenty of that, particularly to the wheel arches, fender vents, and mirror covers. Rounding out the exterior changes on the crossover are a set of 20" Oz Racing Dakar wheels wrapped in Marangoni’s exclusive ruby red M-Power EvoRed tires.

For the interior dress-up, Marangoni enlisted the help of Italian fashion house, Conte of Florence, who came out with the genius idea of dressing up the interior with a special golf inspired quilted upholstery with a large embroidered Tour Line emblem on the seats.

Under its hood, the Evoque was fitted with an "HFI" Hybrid Fuel Injection dual-fuel system, an upgraded turbocharger, a carbon fiber air box, and a larger stainless steel exhaust, all of which gave the crossover’s existing 2.0-liter turbo engine a spike in output. With the modifications in place, the Evoque’s output shot up from the standard 240 horsepower all the way up to 300 horsepower.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

The wheels are really hot in red. The HFI dual-fuel system is one of its amazing parts in this Evoque, but it’s still lacking in boosting performance.

I hope in this way the Evoque will be checked and refurnished by Marangoni to prevent another accident.

I must say that Marangoni is quite a tuning company with a very high fashion sense.

I’m thankful because Marangoni has tuned one of my most favorite SUVs and made it even more appealing.

The enhanced style is enticing. It’s overflowing of aggressive charisma.

Nice one, Marangoni! The theme has boosted a more aggressive appeal to this. Now that this dynamic automotive has upgraded its style, I definitely want to buy it.

It’s very impressive. The ruby-red tires exactly catch the “hot wheels” idea. Because of this, we almost thought Evoque is all about fashion on this innovation as it even sought famous designers for its exterior and interior. As we see it has 300HP, we can also note that it is competitive.

Wow! Very impressive looking SUV! I like the red set of tires, it’s unusual and gives highlight to the white body paint. It’s much sexier than the chic in the front. smiley

Wow red tires! It’s the first time I saw this kind of tires. It’s very exotic. The interior is spacious and comfortable.

This car is simply amazing for a Range Rover. Very useful for adventure-seeker and good for a family size type of car. I am excited to know about its engine system. It is more preferable and classy on it’s white body paint with the touch of red.

It’s magnificent in overall appearance. What’s with the wheels? Are they really colored in pink or red? It’s cute. I really like it a lot.

My comment on this that it looks so exclusive on its platform. I’m really so fascinated with the attractive looks of it. I just do hope that its engine is really enough on it.

Well, the fact that they use a turbo engine on this vehicle. I think it could truly have a nice speed performance on that which is only fitted for an SUV. Moreover, I’m really fascinated with the attractive looks of it.

It looks so exclusive on its platform, and I have to agree that it already looks great on its body paint. It’s a good thing as well that they use a turbo engine on it, which is very suited for this SUV.

I hope that its engine is really enough on it, so that it will truly have an impressive figure performance even though it is a huge vehicle. Anyway, I wonder if it also has an awesome interior?

  (368) posted on 12.6.2011

The model looks so sexy! smiley Anyway, its engine is still efficient for me because it was as yet on a turbo barrel which has an impressive output of 300 hp. Moreover, the few changes that they do on this Evoque make it more looks perfect!

Rover is seems bulky on its platform but its exterior detailing is so attractive on it. Well, this one is surely has an impressive and luxurious interior just like the other Evoque model. However, I noticed that they didn’t maintain this to have an efficient engine.
