"What I love about Range Rover is that there's no other car I think you could use to arrive at the red carpet, then head off to the country in," Victoria adds. "I wanted people to be able to see the quality and the luxury, and to feel it as well. Something that worked for men and women, something that was cool, but not too try-hard."

"You know, I'm not just messing around here," she says emphatically. "I'm trying to build a serious business, and I have to stay true to myself. I have to build this business the right way; I don't want to run before I can walk. I'm so proud of everything I did with the Spice Girls - I really am. But this is my passion. This is what I've always wanted to do, and I think I've found an arena I can compete in, in my own little way.
