A short while back we took a look at the 2012 Range Rover Evoque’s exterior colors as well as the interior color options that are available for U.S. buyers. Today, we have a two renderings of the Evoque wearing custom two-tone and tri-tone paint schemes along with a couple of additional photos featuring cars from Startech and Maragoni.
The Range Rover Evoque has been eagerly snapped up by designers such as A. Kahn Design and Merdad Collection, among others. The Evoque is proving to be fertile ground for designers who are taking to the Evoque with everything from simple custom coatings to complete vehicle makeovers. In the mid-ground are aftermarket companies that are at this very moment working up body kits and other add-ons for the Evoque that modify both form and function. We fully expect the Evoque to enjoy very strong aftermarket support from both the factory and independent designers.

Below, you will see that the first two images are color studies RoverGuide created for a bit of fun. The following two images, however, are the real deal. The first is the 2012 Range Rover Evoque by Startech and the second is the Maragoni HFI-R complete with a set of red M-Power EvoRed tires.
These two color studies take advantage of the Evoque’s natural lines. The first rendering shows a Narvik Black roof topping an Altamira Orange hood and shoulder line that gives way to a Catena Grey base. A thick black pinstripe along the color divide continues the illusion of the floating hood down the length of the Evoque. The second rendering follows the same natural lines and is a rich Scarab Black over a Fall Horizon Red base.
Startech recently revealed two vehicles showcasing the company’s styling kits. Startech unveiled the first all-white Evoque body kit at the Dubai Auto Show. The second — and more sinister — version was released shortly afterwards. The exterior styling package renders the Evoque in all-black with a red roof and red accents on the grill and the wheels.
Italian tire manufacturer Maragoni decided to use a Titanium Fluid Metal Evoque to showcase its bright red M-Power EvoRed tires. Colored tires have been around forever, but have never quite caught on with car tuners or the public in general. In addition to the exterior aesthetic makeover, the HFI-R Evoque received a red interior treatment and engine performance upgrades.
