Land Rover designers winced at this year's Geneva motor show when they saw what some 'styling houses' had done to their finely crafted Range Rover: mirror pink, undriveable off-road, and Darth Vader-inspired seems to sum them up. So, although it's taken a while for Overfinch to show its styling pack for the full-fat Range Rover, it's good to see it's not an eyesore – thank Overfinch's head of design Tony Fox for that.
We do think he's been studying the Bumper Book of Sports Cars for inspiration though… The aggressively chiselled bumpers at the front have strong hints of Porsche Cayman about them, and the rear airdam screams Lamborghini Countach, but on the whole it's very reserved and gives the L405 a different look.
The bumpers and subtle roof spoiler are all made of lightweight carbon fibre, which can be finished naturally, showing off the material's distinctive weave pattern, or painted over. At the rear, cast exhaust tailpipes are integrated into the bumper cutout shape.
The Overfinch Range Rover is offered with a choice of three multi-spoke alloy wheel styles, in 22in and 23in diameters and a range of different finishes. None of them are aimed at serious off-road use though.
Inside there are two new seat cushion designs, both using Bridge of Weir leather, and hand-finished veneers. If you can think of a combination you'd like, they'll surely be able to do it.
A maximum of 100 Overfinch Range Rover conversions will be built in 2014. For more details see overfinch.com
