2018 Range Rover Velar LUMMA CLR GT. NEW Range Rover Velar Urban Automotive. Range Rover Velar LUMMA CLR GT Limited Edition. The exterior design of Range Rover’s latest premium SUV takes the established design motifs to new heights. The distinctive proportions of a blunt nose with strongly etched radiator grille, squat falling roofline, retractable door handles and integrated rear spoiler, are applied to a new bodyshell with very clean surfaces devoid of crease lines. LUMMA Design’s Widebody conversion gives the new sporty Range Rover SUV an extra dose of self-confidence. The conversion begins at the front, where the distinctive front spoiler and mesh inserts give the car a more aggressive face. Along the flanks, wider wheel arches and door panel extensions change the look of the car dramatically, especially once the wide arches are filled to the brim by double five-spoke 12.0J x 22-inch LUMMA CLR Racing alloy wheels, shod with 305/35R22 tyres. The combination gives the Velar a tougher, more purposeful stance. At the rear, the distinctive underbody diffuser incorporates a pair of angular stainless steel sports exhaust tailpipes on each side, each stamped with the LUMMA logo. All LUMMA aerodynamic parts are ‘Made in Germany’ from PU RIM or carbon fibre to original equipment quality. TÜV approval for all components is currently underway. A matching decorative strip set is an option. /////////////////////////////////////////// Author: Range Rover Velar SVR - Peisert Design, X-Tomi. ///////////////////////////////////////////
Range Rover Sport Masters Downhill Alpine Ski Challenge Speeds of 96mph, 75 per cent gradients and a 2,170 metre descent, the Range Rover Sport has conquered it all on an Alpine ski course that has been the downfall of many skiers. Ultimate all-terrain performance SUV tackles the legendary Inferno downhill ski course in Mürren, Switzerland “Toughest ever route” for British racing driver and ex-‘Stig’, Ben Collins Fearsome 14.9km test completed in 21min 36sec at up to 96mph (155kmh) 510PS 5.0-litre V8 supercharged Range Rover Sport the king of the hill Speeds of 96mph, 75 per cent gradients and a 2,170 metre descent, the Range Rover Sport has conquered it all on an Alpine ski course that has been the downfall of many skiers. The Range Rover Sport is the ultimate luxury performance SUV and the first-ever production vehicle to attempt the fearsome ski run. Piloted by renowned race and stunt driver Ben Collins, the all-terrain super-SUV tackled the treacherous terrain on the 14.9km downhill route at Mürren in Switzerland, completing it in 21min 36sec. During the 2,170m descent, the Range Rover Sport followed the route used by skiers on the tough Inferno Mürren, one of the oldest and most challenging downhill races. It tackled snow, ice, loose rock, mud, broken asphalt, grass and gravel, helped by Land Rover’s pioneering Terrain Response technology. Introduced in 2013, Range Rover Sport is a genuine Land Rover success story, delivering all the refinement and capability expected from a large SUV with the performance normally associated with a sports car. Land Rover’s latest InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, Advanced Tow Assist technology and efficient 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine were all introduced to the nameplate in August British racer Collins, famous for his role as ‘The Stig’ on Top Gear was pushed to the limit by hairpin bends and the danger of sheer drops. "This was genuinely one of the hardest tests I’ve faced in my driving career. The route was insane and certainly the toughest course I’ve ever completed. It challenged you with every kind of obstacle this side of molten lava and as conditions go, it was about as bad as it gets – torrential weather mixed with cliffs, trees, all kinds of stuff you don't really want to crash into." "This was genuinely one of the hardest tests I’ve faced in my driving career. The route was insane and certainly the toughest course I’ve ever completed. It challenged you with every kind of obstacle this side of molten lava and as conditions go, it was about as bad as it gets – torrential weather mixed with cliffs, trees, all kinds of stuff you don't really want to crash into." The treacherous yet beautiful mountain course tested the Range Rover Sport’s capability with ice and sleet at the top, where Collins reached 75mph (120kmh), and fog and wet grass at the bottom, where he hit 96mph (155kmh). The pioneering Terrain Response technology features six modes that will adapt the vehicle’s settings to the appropriate surface. For example, in Dynamic mode the Anti-Roll Bar is stiffened to reduce body roll, the Grass/Gravel/Snow mode reduces under and over steer by engine braking, while in Mud and Ruts, the rear differential is locked to allow controlled wheel slip for better traction. On its way down the ultimate performance SUV tackled perilous gradients of up to 75 per cent - steeper than many black runs at famous ski resorts such as Chamonix - in freezing temperatures. The feat was achieved in a Range Rover Sport with a 510PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine, standard apart from the essential safety additions of a roll cage and reinforced tyres.
