text size: A- A+
Just think about it… being able to take just about any shortcut on and off-road you feel like, as long as it doesn’t involves going over an office building.
According to Steve Haywood, Bowler’s managing director, they are looking to make a “Supercar SUV” based on the Range Rover Sport. Another thing worth mentioning is that Haywood was previously a chief engineer over at Range Rover. His goal at Bowlernow is to develop the fourth-generation model of Nemesis.
“We have a tremendous opportunity. Bowler has generated huge interest in past years for a street-legal version of the competition cars. But we’ll begin work on any new model quite slowly, taking care with its positioning and specifications, keeping all the recognition devices to maintain the pedigree, and listening carefully to the customer’s requirements.” Steve Haywood, Bowler Managing Director was quoted as saying by autocar.co.uk.
The rally raid vehicle manufacturer Bowler which was recently bought by CPP, which also owns Spyker and is talks to aquire Zagato, has the capacity of manufacturing 15-20 rally raid vehicles per year. Steve Haywood forecasts that there will be a demand of 150 to 200 road-going versions a year, from customers who are in need of a 4X4 that is tougher than most models on the market.
