Land Rover Range Rover Evoque by B&B

We have all heard of the B&B Automobiltechnik, a German tuning brand well known for its BMW, VW and Mercedes-Benz projects. They want to become more than that and this is why, now the specialists have turned their attention towards Land Rover, the Range Rover Evoque to be more precise. The carmaker offers the model with three engine variants. The aftermarket specialists have offered different performance enhancements for all three. Its base engine, the 2.2-liter turbo diesel in the ED4 and TD4 models is capable of developing 148 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque.

The Stage One package offered by the B&B Automobiltechnik specialists increase these figures to 177 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque and the Stage Two kit to 197 horsepower and 475 Nm of torque. The other engine involved is the 2.2-liter SD4 diesel capable of developing 188 horsepower before the modifications. After the B&B touch, the output increases to 227 horsepower and 480 Nm of torque with the Level 1 package and to 241 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque with the Level 2. The last unit is the 2.2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that develops 236 horsepower as standard. After the first stage of modifications the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is capable of producing 268 horsepower, 282 horsepower after the second and 295 horsepower after the third. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and to reach a top a speed of 230 km/h.

The power packages are not the only thing the tuning brand has to offer. Apparently they have also developed a lowering kit that brings the model 30 mm closer to the road, a sports exhaust system that provides another 5 horsepower and also a six-piston high performance brake system. As optional clients can choose alloy wheels designs measuring 19-inch and 22-inch. This is all on the matter so far.
