Evoque HFI-R Marangoni: the new 2012 show car fitted with Marangoni "M-Power EvoRed" tyres.
Marangoni has thus for the fifth consecutive year chosen to underline its focus on research, the environment and sport through a show car, the new Range Rover Evoque, which is currently one of the biggest hits on the automobile market.
The idea to use unarguable Italian style to improve something that in itself is already fascinating is a challenge that reflects Marangoni’s desire to continuously put itself to the test, to explore and search for the best solutions and showcases for its products.
The result of this style project is called Marangoni Evoque HFI-R, the quintessence of elegance, fashion and sport. But that’s not all. The Marangoni Evoque HFI-R, based on a Si4 2.0 Turbo petrol engine model, has been tuned to deliver 300bhp, but still manages to significantly reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions by exploiting innovative combined hydrogen and natural gas technology. The HFI (Hybrid Fuel Injection) system can be supplied with hydrogen-natural gas mixes in varying percentages, as well as natural gas only, and is a valid 'ecological' and 'economical' solution, as these fuels do not pollute and are easy to source.
Especially for the Evoque HFI-R, Marangoni has developed “M-Power EvoRed”, a special set of 20” ruby red coloured tyres. In this experimental version, the compounds used feature a high silica content along with innovative materials that minimise rolling resistance and consequently fuel consumption.
The special “M-Power EvoRed” tyres have been developed by utilising the same platform as the Marangoni tyre M-Power range. This new ultra high performance product from Marangoni has just recently been introduced to the market, with sales results already exceeding expectations. The Marangoni M-Power range is the result of considerable investments in technology and research that have allowed Marangoni to develop a product with a sporting soul, extremely high performance and progressive handling, designed to ensure maximum driving pleasure and the highest level of safety.
Complimenting the new design is the car’s stunning interior, provided by the very-Italian fashion brand Conte of Florence, which gives the car a sporting and at the same time elegant soul, in perfect symbiosis with the style of the specially developed sportswear.
Once again Marangoni has released a world first by reinterpreting a car that is brand new on the market. The design project was managed, as in the past, by the TRC Italia style centre, under the guidance of Simone Neri.
