Well it looks as though Land Rover USA decided to take advantage of the Montreal Auto Show in Canada this month to reveal the third model in the British landmark inspired lineup of special edition models, aptly named the NW8.
The Range Rover Evoque NW8 takes its inspiration from the postcode in North West London, UK, that has been at the heart of the city’s creative scene since the Sixties and is home to the world famous Abbey Road. The NW8 is derived from the Dynamic model, and complements the existing SW1 Monochrome and SW1 Color special editions.
The exterior of the NW8 is exclusively available in Fuji White paintwork with a distinctive Firenze Red Contrast Roof and matching red door mirror caps. The lettering is also in red, the 20-inch alloys are in Narvik black, and other accents include darkened head- and fog lights, clear rear lights and Santorini black wing vents.
On the interior, customers have the choice of either Taurus leather Ebony seats with Pimento perforated inserts, or Ebony seats with perforated Ebony inserts. Also found lurking inside are embroidered headrests and an Anodised Red rotary Driver Selector with matching CommandShiftTM gearshift paddles or, on manual models, a white gearlever insert with red graphics.
Like the standard four-wheel drive Evoque, the NW8 comes with a 2.0-liter gas engine that puts out 236 horses and 251 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a smooth shifting, nine-speed automatic transmission.
Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, Gerry McGovern, said: “Our customers love to personalize their vehicles to reflect their own characters and the Evoque NW8 provides another opportunity for them to make a statement. Its bold combination of colors makes it the most individual of our ‘Inspired by Britain’ special editions.”
There will only be 1,000 examples of the special edition NW8 produced, so if you are keen to get your hands wrapped around the steering wheel of this unique and opulent SUV then we encourage you to give us a call at Land Rover Austin and we will try and work some magic for you.
