Victoria Beckham attacked over her claim that she 'designed' a Range Rover 'for husband David

Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham at the car launch

Victoria Beckham is at the center of an astonishing row over her part in designing a special edition of the Range Rover for her beloved husband David.

Gerry McGovern, 61, design director at Land Rover, which makes the cars, has accused the former Spice Girl-turned-fashionista of overstating her role at the launch of a special VB Evoque, where she claimed: ‘I’ve designed a car that I want to drive, a car I think [husband] David wants to drive.’

But Mr McGovern said at a publicity event last week: ‘She didn’t design the car… I’ve forgotten more than that woman will ever know about [car] designing – to be a car designer takes years.

‘When we went to China to present it, she stood up in front of the world’s press and said, “When I designed this car…” I said, “Victoria, that wasn’t on the script.”

‘She said, “Oh, I didn’t realise what I was saying.” ’

His frustration goes back to 2012 when Mrs Beckham, 43, was asked to create a version of the Evoque with ‘restrained colour and detail changes’, as the company explained. But not to ‘change the award-winning design’.

The £80,000 car featured matt paintwork, vintage-inspired leather seats, ‘rose gold accents’ inspired by Mrs Beckham’s watch, mohair trimmings and a leather luggage set. ‘We never said she designed the car – that’s an assumption people made,’ said Mr McGovern.

In one interview, Mrs Beckham said: ‘I wanted to really roll my sleeves up and get involved. I never just put my name on anything… I was very hands-on.’

Mrs Beckham’s launch speech clearly still irritates Mr McGovern, who said last week: ‘I didn’t want to work with her after that.’

Land Rover said: ‘The three-year project was completed in full by both parties and was a huge creative success around the world. Mrs Beckham remains part of the Land Rover family.’

Mrs Beckham did not comment.
