Range Rover Evoque: ‘Spy’ shots in London

The Range Rover Evoque with different back end treatments

I know, why on earth do we need ‘Spy’ shots of the Range Rover Evoque when we saw a completely undisguised Evoque – and eventually an equally undisguised Victoria Beckham – at Land Rover’s recent party at KP to celebrate 40 years of Range Rover goodness?

Which was exactly our sentiment when we got a Tweet from Land Rover pointing us towards ‘Spy’ photos of the Evoque which purport to be snapped whilst the Evoque was out in London – perhaps on a secret photo shoot? Anyway, that’s what we thought when we saw the four photos at the bottom shoved on to YouTube. PR stunt, we thought. Planted pics.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. It’s just LR PR doing their job. But even in the silly season it didn’t seem wonderfully newsworthy. But we had a closer look at the photos, and we’ve noticed that the two Evoques in the snaps are different. Or at least their back ends are different.

One seems very low key – a typically Land Rover rear-end understatement. But the other back end is much more flamboyant. Much more like the blingy competition. All chrome bits and ‘housed’ exhausts with square pipes. So does this show that the back end treatment of the Evoque will differ depending on the model you choose? Or does it mean that Land Rover hasn’t decided whether they should go bling or prosaic?

No idea. But it’s a better story than yet more Evoque spy shots.
