RR Evoque: driven to extremes
The hottest, muddiest, coldest, glitziest test in history: we go global in the baby Rangey
Posted: 09 Dec 2011
Don't worry, these aren't design features but mere glitches on our not-quite-production-ready car that'll be ironed out before the Evoque reaches forecourts. Anyway, I'm looking at a recipe for complete mental disintegration and a sudden, uncontrollable desire to starting licking windows.
And that's before trying to comprehend the landscape. What a strange, beautiful country this is, an all-you-can-eat buffet of geology. In any given five-mile stretch, the scenery flips from purple, lupus-strewn meadows to fields of black lava - coated in soft, gloopy, moss-like chocolate sauce atop profiteroles - to desolate, charcoal-sand beaches. Then craggy, piercing cliffs and lumpen glaciers, to rocky plateaus dotted with steaming geysers.
