Women’s World Car of the Year

julynewswomenUnsurprisingly perhaps, the Range Rover Evoque was voted the Women’s World Car of the Year 2012, beating BMW, Jaguar and Porsche to first place. Audi’s Q3 came third. The jury is based on the votes of female motoring writers from 12 countries and yet again, the Evoque has beaten all before it. Looking at the number of female drivers you see behind the wheel of the new baby Range Rover, its popularity just seems to grow in every sector. One female fan includes Victoria Beckham who appears to have been involved in a collaboration with designer Gerry McGovern to produce the new Evoque Special Edition. Hand finished matt grey paint, 20inch gloss black forged alloy wheels and rose-gold detailing will be exclusive to the new Limited Edition. The interior has Vintage Tan leather, with ‘a bold baseball stitch, detail chosen by Victoria as a tongue-in-cheek reference to her sporting husband David’. There, and you thought he played football, didn’t you? A bespoke luggage set is also included – for those Posh designer dresses… The model initially goes on sale in China later this year. For those of us on Planet Earth, this all seems somewhat frivolous, but with ‘indicative pricing’ of a whooping £79,995, it will undoubtedly sell and is yet another success story in the life of the Evoque.
