Range Rover Velar

Range Rover’s svelte Velar was voted production design of the year by Car Design News last week, an award selected by a panel of senior professional designers. Only cars brought to market during 2017 were eligible for the award.

The Velar achieves great presence from its combination of pure surfaces, strong volumes and great proportions. The design does have one weakness however: it’s quite spec sensitive, and a Velar with entry level wheels and paint comes across as a sorry sight.

Alas there are no signatures on any of these bold sketches released by Land Rover. Velar was designed under Gerry McGovern’s watch, with Massimo Frascella serving as exterior creative director.
