Επίσης φορά carbon καπάκια καθρεπτών με την απόσταση από το έδαφος να έχει μειωθεί κατά 40 mm. Πατά στη Γη με σφυρήλατες ζάντες 23″ με ελαστικά διαστάσεων 315/25, οι οποίες είναι κατά 40% ελαφρύτερες από τις εργοστασιακές.

Act of God

FAB Design’s Noreia, which is based on the Range Rover Vogue, doesn’t just bear the name of a goddess. With impeccable elegance the specialists of FAB Design present a tailor-made Range Rover Vogue in the usual perfect quality. Of course, the body of the goddess may only be dressed exclusively in the best material: composite material with a multitude of components made from visible carbon. This refers to the new front spoiler as well as to the rear spoiler with the recess for the new world exclusive carbon exhaust tailpipes. Also from the fine material are the extenders, both on the front as well as on rear wings that bring a huge 60 millimetres of additional width and with which the new side skirts are connected. The FAB aerodynamic components impress with their high resilience but with low weight.

Sophisticated forging process guarantees high performance values

The large and wider wheel arches are filled with forged monoblock wheels in sizes of 11 x 23 inches, which are covered with 315/25 size tyres. The time-consuming production process guarantees the excellent qualities of the high-performance rims. During the forging process, the material is compressed to a point where all air inclusions are forced out of the aluminium. So this results in not only particularly low wall thicknesses, but at the same time extremely high load-bearing capacities and a weight saving compared to conventional cast wheels of up to 40 percent. So the new FAB forged aluminium rims also qualify for the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche SUV models.

Thanks to the FAB lowering module the Range Rover Vogue is now enthroned 40 millimetres closer to the asphalt and the centre of gravity relocated for better driving dynamics. All performance figures that are worthy of a goddess. However the special features don’t just stop with the ultra-lightweight wheels. Also the power of the drive unit makes an enormous leap upwards. Thanks to an optimised control unit and a sports air filter designed as an extra for the Range Rover Vogue the turbo-charged V8 Supercharged now delivers an impressive 540 hp (397 kW) instead of the serial 510 hp (375 kW). The maximum torque now lies at 670 Nm instead of 625 Nm.

Fine details characterise the new interior ambience As dynamically as FAB Design have transformed the Range Rover from the outside, the refiners have presented the interior as just as grand. The extravagant use of leather, Alcantara and visible carbon gives the cockpit a completely undreamt of atmosphere. The transformation does not just stop with the front seats and the rear seating, but also clothes the instrument panel and the door panels as never before. With a flair for fine details accents can be found throughout the interior, be it on the selector lever of the automatic programme, the high quality pedals made of aluminium or on the steering wheel.

In the past FAB Design has made a name for itself with exceptionally high-quality transformations of exclusive sports cars. The refiner now proves, once again, that the in-house engineering skill and the talented design language can be adapted to a fourseater. Noreia is the irrevocable proof of the fact that individualism and self-confident style undergo a divine symbiosis at FAB Design.
