If you knew, you knew
There was a lot of speculation about the origin of the camouflage-inspired name Velar: Romanticists saw a reference to the Latin word velare in the model designation of the top-secret test cars of the sixties and seventies, while pragmatic spirits recognised a link to the V8 Land Rover. The compact new Range Rover model, which has just celebrated its world debut in London last night, is also called Velar — filling, admittedly, the not exactly large gap between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. Land Rover promised innovative assistance systems and a completely new design language of 'reductionism', and they delivered all that and more.
