Evoque: not-so-secret prototypes

Groovy prototype RR Evoques launched and wave Big Friendly Hello to ten cities

Range Rover Evoque

We're still a little fuzzy on the whole ‘Victoria-Beckham-as-design-executive' thing, but the new Rangie is a stunner, right?

Unveiled two weeks ago to a load of posh folk at Kensington Palace (we were there, they were really posh), the new Range Rover Evoque is the baby of the range.

See images of the Range Rover Evoque prototypes coming to a city near you...

And as it's still in development, Land Rover has decided to decal ten prototype models and send them off on magical adventures around the globe. Or maybe rag them senseless until fire, death or serious carnage occurs. All in the name of testing, of course.

Normal prototypes are disguised until launch to shield them from prying photography-type people. These colourful bad-boys however, have been specifically designed to shout a Big Friendly Hello to ten special cities while being ragged - sorry, tested.

The groovy camo'd paintwork is actually GPS mapping trails of each city. Admit it, if one drove past you'd wave hello back right? No? Just us then.

As for the whole Victoria Beckham thing, what's your take people?
