The STARTECH Pickup based on the latest Range Rover celebrates its world premiere at the 2015 Auto Shanghai show.

Startech_RR_Pickup_1The Range Rover is converted into one of the world’s most exclusive pickups following the best coach building tradition that was once common for English luxury cars in particular.

Startech_RR_Pickup_3The exclusive multi-purpose super car is powered by a five-liter eight-cylinder supercharged engine rated at 387 kW / 526 hp. It pushes the pickup from rest to 100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 250 km/h.

Startech_RR_Pickup_2The STARTECH engineers and constructors employed state-of-the-art technology to develop the conversion from a five-door off-roader to a classy transport specialist with pickup bed. The transformation required designing and manufacturing no less than 100 bodywork components from aluminum, carbon fiber and steel.

Startech_RR_Pickup_5The pickup offers five comfortable seats and is thus just as spacious as the original vehicle. In the cockpit the dashboard, seats and door panels were covered with fine and especially breathable black leather with red stitching. Carbon-fiber applications with the same surface structure as the aerodynamic-enhancement components continue the bodywork design in the interior. The German specialists integrated a new rear bulkhead with heated tinted rear window behind the individual seats in the back. The wall to the pickup bed is invisibly welded to the new shorter roof skin, and to the also newly developed C-pillars. Despite the shortened roof, the panoramic sunroof is fully retained.

Startech_RR_Pickup_4The plastic-lined pickup bed is almost square and with the tailgate closed offers a loading length of 110 centimeters. When the tailgate is opened, either by remote control or by a push of a button in the cockpit, another 60 centimeters are available for carrying cargo.
