Range Rover Evoque by Castagna

Carrozzeria Castagna Milano has patented a new digital woodworking process that led to the development of the finish called WoodFabric. To unveil this new material, a customized version of the hybrid Range Rover Evoque has been created, shown online following the cancellation of the Salone del Mobile, where it has to be inveiled.

Malleable wood like fabric

Behind the slogan “Wood outside, wood inside”, the atelier confirms its traditional use of this material, often used to decorate the interiors and exteriors of cars. WoodFabric, is innovative and immune to temperature changes, humidity and UV rays and can be used in all conditions without losing its main characteristics and qualities. WoodFabric feels at the touch like printed fabric, but retain the reflections and texture of the original material becoming malleable to the point of being able to cover the dashboard, seats and panels without the use of molds

Gray, blue and coffee colors

The Evoque made by Carrozzeria Castagna features external oak woodstrips which follow the coachline starting from the rearlight LEDs. The interior, on the other hand, offers a completely new glance: the gray-blue leather, coordinated with the dominant color of the bodywork, has in fact been combined with Alcantara coffee-colored, pearl-gray metallic finishes and WoodFabric inserts on the backrest and on the dashboard

To celebrate more than two centuries of experience Morgan Motor Company will collaborate with Pininfarina on a vehicle to be unveiled in 2024.

A Morgan designed by Pininfarina

Morgan’s historic headquarters, is located in England, on Pickersleigh Road near Malvern Link in Worcestershire. This is the only place in the world where Morgans are built, all unique cars assembled by hand using ash wood, aluminum and leather. From the union of this craftsmanship with Pininfarina’s style we expect a lot.

For now there are no further details, as they will be announced in 2024 during Morgan’s 115th year, however, along with the release was released the cover image, a kind of “postcard” of what it will be, a glimpse of the past combined with modern design in very deep colors that evoke tradition and elegance.

Limited edition

Since each Morgan is handmade to order, it is safe to assume that this special Morgan by Pininfarina already has a collector waiting for it. We will know more in the coming months, in the meantime let’s read with attection what Massimo Fumarola, CEO of Morgan Motor Company, said:

“Bodywork is the very essence of creating a car, and it is something we have nurtured and protected at Morgan. We have found that working by hand and not through automation and letting the heart of the creator shape a line or object is what allows the spirit of our company to shine. For us, bodywork also has an ethical significance. Making something with our hands allows us to fully understand and appreciate raw materials and to respect the environment in which they are created. Bodywork is not constrained by trends and boundaries, as we are discovering through this collaboration. The shared passion between Morgan and Pininfarina is evident and we look forward to sharing much more with our community in due course.”
