LAND ROVER ADDS SPORT TO EUROPEAN FREELANDER LINEUP WITH SPECIAL EDITION

By Andrew Ganz

Land Rover’s Freelander – sold in North America as the Land Rover LR2 – takes a few cues from its Range Rover Sport big brother for its latest special edition, the Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Limited Edition.

Unveiled this week at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy, the Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Limited Edition features most of the Freelander 2′s new-for-2011 design updates and adds a few styling touches. The grille and side vents gain a black finish, while a new body kit gives the small ‘ute a more aggressive appearance.

Three colors will be available, including black, white and an all-new Firenze Red (pictured). Special 19-inch Shadow Chrome alloy wheels, body colored trim and tinted windows round out the appearance.

Inside, two trim levels of black leather will be available with either contrasting stitching or a light highlight strip and piano black fascia trim replaces aluminum.

All models are powered by Land Rover’s new diesel. The package will be offered exclusively in Europe, but it wouldn’t surprise us if the special body kit makes its way to North America in one form or another in the future.

Land Rover Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Limited Edition 190HP Revealed at Bologna Show

A new limited version of the Freelander 2 was unveiled today at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy. Set to arrive in early 2011, the Freelander 2 SD4 Sport LE will be built in a limited run with the UK to receive 500 units priced from £33,945.

“The Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Limited Edition offers customers the practicality, performance and efficiency of our best-selling compact SUV with more dramatic, sporty styling and the overall package represents good value for money,” said Colin Green, managing director, Land Rover UK.

In a similar fashion to the Discovery 4 Landmark Special Edition, the Freelander 2 SD4 LE receives a front grille finished in black and shares two out of the three exterior color options with its bigger sibling, including the Fuji White and Santorini Black, joined by the all-new Firenze Red tone, shown in the pictures.

A discrete bodykit and 19-inch alloys improve the look of the car, while front and rear parking sensors are offered as standard. The interior can be clad either in Ebony Windsor or Ebony Napoli leather, with contrasting stitching or leather stripes. Parts of the dashboard have a Piano Black finish, complemented by new duo-tone floor mats.

The Limited Edition comes with a 190 hp 2.2-liter four-pot diesel, coupled to a six-speed automatic, capable of accelerating the car from standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 8.7 seconds. Top speed is pegged at 118 mph (190 km/h).

Thanks to the Intelligent Power Management System (IPMS), the battery is charged by recovered kinetic energy whenever the vehicle is decelerating. The Freelander 2 Sport SD4 Limited Edition can run on 10% biodiesel and has CO2 emissions of 185 g/km.
