German Tuner Hamann Releases Range Rover Evoque Accessory Line
Widebody Package, Chip Tuning Highlight Offerings
The 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque has not only proven itself special enough to be named our 2012 SUV of the Year, but it has become something of a fashion icon as well, one that's caught the eyes of the aftermarket. German tuner Hamann, traditionally known for its BMW performance and accessory offerings, now offers a widebody styling kit and engine and suspension tuning components for the avant-garde SUV.
The styling kit consists of a two-piece front spoiler, side sill extensions, fender flares, rear apron, and a sport muffler with center-exit exhaust. If that's not enough stylistic attitude for you, Hamann also offers 22-inch wheels and spacers to fill out the newly broadened wheel wells. Lowering springs that drop the ride height by approximately 1.2 inches (30mm) are also available.
If you want a little more power than what's offered by the factory, Hamann offers two stages of chip-tuning for the European-market 2.2-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder and one for the 2.0-liter GDI turbo, the only engine option on the U.S.-spec model. The diesel can be tuned for up to 220 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque, the gasoline engine up to 260 hp and 291 lb-ft.
