Hamann's Take On The Evoque Convertible Is Anything But Subtle

If you have an eccentric personality, then the Hamann-prepared Range Rover Evoque Convertible is the car for you.

To be honest, the SUV-cabriolet niche is kind of forgettable, since no one really needs (or thinks about) a drop-top, posh, high-riding soft-roader. Land Rover, on the other hand, reckons its product won’t have the same fate as the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (remember that thing?), that’s why it’s offering a topless Evoque – the perfect car for a tuner to showcase its abilities.

Why? Because it’s outrageous and quirky, making it a unique appearance in the motoring world. Hamann’s take on the car focuses on making appear more muscular, giving it a striking face to match. The latter includes a two-part grille, new air intakes and individually framed optic-fiber daytime running lights.

The body kit widens the car by 70 millimeters at the front and 80 millimeters at the rear, thanks to the bloated wing extensions that house the ginormous wheel/tire combo. The rear was enhanced as well, receiving a new diffuser and a gargantuan exhaust with anodized Hamann tailpipes embedded in the rear bumper.

It's not all show, though, as the Evoque received an ignition map optimization for all its engines. The power of the TD4 2.2-litre engine grew from 150 PS (147 hp) to 181 PS (181 hp), and from 180 PS (177 hp) to 210 PS (206 hp) respectively, while the early Si4 2.0-litre petrol had its might uprated from 240 PS (237 hp) to 260 PS (256 hp).
