Matlock’s KITT Car
Matlock’s own Milner 4X4 have decided that what the Range Rover Evoque really needs is a 5.0l Supercharged V8 pumping out a reliable 550bhp.
And we commend them for this. We’d love to have a go, and are wondering what kind of Ponzi scheme it takes to pay for the petrol…
According to Milner:
New for 2013, the Milner LRM-1 is the latest thoroughbred to emerge from our stables. It draws from the knowledge gained over 30 years of cross country racing.
Using parts and technologies from some of the best brands in motorsport, the Milner LRM-1 is capable of competing at the highest level from the outset as all of the development has been carried out over the last 2 years in our own ‘works’ test car.
The LRM-1 has a full space frame chassis with double wishbone, fully independent suspension, clad in a composite body shell scaled to 4/5 the size of a road going Evoque.
It is still instantly recognisable as one of the most exciting looking cars to be launched in the UK for a long time.
The first production car benefits from the latest Land Rover 5.0 V8 supercharged engine producing in excess of 550BHP and 680Nm of torque. The transmission is a 6spd sequential gear box driving a Milner transfer box and Milner differentials with Quaife centres throughout.
The Milner LRM-1 is available to customers as a turn-key car or as a rolling kit with a choice of power plants and transmission packages.
