I’m usually into hard-core stuff, and when it comes to 4×4 cars, the Land Rover Defender is a beast; my favorite beast! There’s no accounting for taste, which is why I’m ok with the fact that most people prefer the Range Rover series – comfort, luxury and style. I don’t appreciate the new generation 4×4’s and their combos, because truth be told, there’s no way to end up with a proper off road vehicle; you get a proper SUV – even those are harder and harder to find – or a luxury limousine with bigger rims. That’s why, when it comes to Range Rover – not only – I’m harder to sell to.
Here’s FAB Design, and their chance to win me over with their new Range Rover Noreia, just fresh off the presses – so to speak. The Noreia is based on the Range Rover Vogue, but modified and equipped with a wide body kit that includes modified bumpers, revised side skirts and extended wheel arches. The Range Rover also features carbon fiber trim, 23-inch aluminum wheels and an electronic lowering module – this equipment reduces the ride height by 40mm, which is both practical and cool.
There’s a ton of cows splattered all over the cabin, where designers added premium leather upholstery, Alcantara trim and alloy pedals. The dashboard was custom-wrapped and the carbon fiber trim is yet again present. There’s some added performance – sadly, not much. The tuner installed an optimized ECU and a sports air filter, helping that supercharged 5.0-liter V8 develop 540 HP (397 kW) and 670 Nm (494 lb-ft) of torque – an increase of 30 HP (22 kW) and 45 Nm (33 lb-ft); as I said, not that much. Take a bow and.. take a ride!
