Land Rover displayed their proposed Freelander Rally Limited Edition (LE) at the Birmingham Motor Show this week.
The Freelander LE features Fiji Blue metallic paint, sports leather interior, 18″ white alloy sports wheels, lowered and tuned suspension, blue stitching on the leather steering wheel and gear knob and a glass twin panel roof for the 3-door or electric tilt/slide sunroof for the 5-door.
The concept was inspired by the reconnaissance vehicles used by Colin McRae and Carlos Sainz during the 2001 World Rally Championship, and evolved when Land Rover and M-Sport Ltd teamed up to introduce these vehicles at the Pirelli British Rally Championship (PBRC) as a spectator and safety control vehicle.
Land Rover UK managing director, Phil Popham said: “The popularity of the Freelander rally vehicles at various events during the past 12 months convinced us to build a one-off LE to gauge public reaction. That’s what we have done for Birmingham and we look forward to hearing what visitors to the show think of it.”
