Widebody Range Rover Velar Is Startech’s Geneva Showcar

In case you ever considered Land Rover’s stylish Range Rover Velar model to be a little too low-key, here’s a little something from Startech that might turn things around for you.

The German tuner started with the front of the Velar, where a new bumper was installed, featuring an integrated spoiler and larger air intakes. This front end design can be combined with both the production bodywork, as well as the 16-piece widebody kit, which adds another 60 mm (2.36 in) in width.

Underneath the larger wheel arches lay the black 22-inch Startech Monostar M wheels, with a five double-spoke design. Look close and you will notice how the spokes actually extend all the way to the outer flange, making the wheels look even bigger than they already are.

At the rear, there is a new insert to replace the production center panel, a diffuser and integrated exhaust tips. Rounding off the visuals is the tuner’s ride height lowering system, available for all Velar models with air suspension, lowering the SUV by 30 mm (1.18 in) while on the move.

Another interesting mod you can order from Startech is the Sound XTRA module, available for all gasoline and diesel versions of the Velar. What this electronic sound generator does is produce a virtual gasoline V8 sound, without being “annoyingly loud,” says the tuner.

Finally, for the interior, customers can opt for fine leather and Alcantara upholstery, as well as matching wood and carbon fiber trim.

This customized British SUV will make its public debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, next week.

    How is that widebody? That’s just the normal car with a few plastic parts glued to the wheel arches.

      Well, the wheels have more aggressive offsets, so technically it does have a wider track. Not exactly tasteful though.

    And this is how to make a Velar look trashy.
