In 281 horsepower trim, Land Rover claims this go-faster Evoque will hit 60mph from rest in 6.7 and go on to a top speed limited to 140mph.

Aside from the raw numbers, the Evoque Autobiography Dynamic model boasts a number of tweaks to its suspension, brakes and transmission.

Buyers will be able to choose from both three and five-door models, while changes to the car’s exterior run to new alloy wheels, tinted headlights plus a contrasting orange and black exterior colour scheme.
