Bowler has recently announced a new partnership with Land Rover in order to develop a new model which will actually be Bowler’s first road-going vehicle.
According to the two companies, the all-new model which will be Bowler’s first road-going vehicle, will be officially presented to the public during the Goodwood Festival of Speed, between the 29th of June and the 1st of July. The new partnership signed between the two companies is giving Bowler access to the Land Rover development support and components and the Bowler vehicles will also get a badge which says “Powered by Land Rover” in order to promote the legendary brand.
“For over twenty years, Land Rover’s technology has powered Bowlers on some of the toughest and most gruelling off-road sporting events in the world. We’re proud to have been part of Bowler’s success and, just as its latest models come to market, this new formal partnership will fully acknowledge the role of Land Rover technology in Bowler’s high performance all terrain cars”, said Mark Cameron, the Land Rover brand experience director in a statement.
The very first Bowler road-going model will be named the EXR S and it will make its official debut during the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The model is based on the Range Rover Sport and it’s featuring a hydroformed chassis, a composite body and a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine, which is developing a total output of 550 horsepower and 705 Nm of torque (520 lb-ft). The new SUV can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds before reaching a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Prices will be set at 155,000 GBP (192,000 euros).
