Overfinch has been setting the style in Range Rover enhancement since 1975. The New Overfinch is its most impressive yet.
If you’ve been the leader in a highly competitive business for 43 years, you’re clearly doing something right. Since 1975, Overfinch has carved itself a niche as the ultimate Range Rover, with a roll of honour that even includes victory in the Paris-dakar rally. From Manhattan to Mayfair, dubai to deauville, those jewelled enamel letters across the bonnet attract smiles of appreciation from people who know their luxury brands.
And one look at the Overfinch package for the latest Range Rover tells you why that is. It is, quite simply, the iconic Range Rover taken to the next level of exclusivity and individuality, executed with precision and attention to detail that no other conversion company can equal. The latest Overfinch is a stylish, dynamic reinterpretation of Land Rover’s flagship model. The deep Overfinch front airdam features dramatic lower air intakes with Overfinch signature LEd running lights, while its subtly-flared lines accentuate the visual impression of width without bulk. Exposed carbonfibre in perfectly-aligned weave on the intake grilles and spoiler is protected by a deep, lustrous protective finish. It’s the same approach at the rear, with the Overfinch rear bumper and airdam subtly adding drama and aggression without losing the purity of the original. The deep aero diffuser is flanked by two cast and branded Overfinch exhaust tips, complemented by exposed carbon fibre.
Overfinch’s body components are all created with the highest specification carbon fibre which not only reduce weight, but also allow customers to add unique design flourishes. Increasingly, luxury vehicles like the Range Rover feature cutting edge technology which is embedded within their bodywork, from the digital cameras that provide 360° overhead views, to the park distance control sensors and cruise control radar.Overfinch body components integrate all these technologies with millimetre-perfect accuracy to ensure complete functional integrity. visually, the Overfinch conversion is confident, assertive and muscular, but without excess. The alloy wheels provide the finishing touch; Overfinch design and produce their own patented designs, rather than offering widely-available aftermarket items. The latest design, Centaur, is available as a cast 22” rim, or a forged 23” rim. Many Overfinch customers like to specify a bespoke exterior colour, and true to form Overfinch refuses to outsource this element. Instead, the company owns and operates its own paint shop to create the mirror finish that’s a hallmark of an Overfinch conversion.
Step inside, and you settle into the deeply upholstered embrace of the new Lumière design seats, with perforated leather centre panels framed by hexagonal motif stitching. These are trimmed in leather from the Scottish Bridge of Weir tannery—unless you’d like to select an even more exclusive material. If so, the Overfinch team can craft bespoke upholstery in a choice of responsibly-sourced exotic hides, including ostrich and shagreen. The upholstery is complemented by a wide choice of veneers, from traditional burr walnut to Piano Black with mother-ofpearl inlays. Each veneer set is hand-selected and mirror-matched across the car interior. If you prefer carbon-fibre, Overfinch offers a kaleidoscope of colour options, from black to bronze, green, orange or red weave. Optional carbon fibre side sills, tailgate badging and a near-infinite palette of colours and trim ensure that every Range Rover redefined by Overfinch is a limited edition of one. Such bespoke luxury may seem a far cry from the rally-winning Overfinch conversions of the early 1980s. But clearly, Overfinch still goes to the ends of the earth to stay ahead.
