The origin of the Velar name dates back to the first Range Rover prototypes of the Sixties, the development engineers needed to hide the true identity of the 26 pre-production Range Rover vehicles, they chose the name Velar, derived from the Latin ‘velare’ meaning to veil or cover.

Land Rover Chief Design Officer, Gerry McGovern, said: “We call the Velar the avant-garde Range Rover.  It brings a new dimension of glamour, modernity and elegance to the brand. The Range Rover Velar changes everything.”

Built on Jaguar iQ[AI] (D7a) platform, the Range Rover Velar shares a number of components with the Jaguar F-Pace, XF, and XE models, notably its aluminium platform and 2,874 mm (113.1 in) wheelbase. The Velar is built at the same factory in Solihull. However, the Range Rover is 72 mm (2.8 in) longer than the F-Pace.

Citrimax helps support weight management

By James Louis

Citrimax is a dietary ingredient that contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a compound naturally found in a fruit from the subtropical tree species Garcinia cambogia. Studies conducted on HCA found that it supports weight management without affecting the nervous system. It also appears that HCA helps the body inhibit the conversion of carbohydrates into fat. Because it inhibits carbohydrate conversion, we recommend you take Citrimax and Citrimax-containing supplements 30-60 minutes before a meal.*
