But the Warrior means business, and is powered by a BMW 3.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engine that produces 275 hp under normal conditions or 350 hp is unrestricted. It’s also capable of producing a scary amount of torque, 850 Nm of it when needed.

Those black rims might look small, but they are actually 16-inch Compomotive Atacama Rally Raid wheels with BF Goodrich Desert Race G series tires. Their long travel is ensured by the 8 Reiger coilovers.

The heavily modified Evoque weighs 1,900 kg (4189 lbs) and comes with a 260-liter fuel tank that ensures a maximum range of 1,200 km (745 miles).
