Land Rover has revealed this limited edition Sport version of its recently facelifted Freelander 2.

The Land Rover Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Limited Edition, launched at today’s Bologna motor show and limited to just 500 units in the UK, gets more muscular exterior styling as well as some interior upgrades.

The exterior gets a new black finish to the front grille and a body styling pack that includes a rear spoiler and changes to the front corners. New 19-inch Shadow Chrome alloys are added, as are body-coloured door handles and mirror caps and rear privacy glass.

Three exterior colour choices are offered: Fuji White, Santorini Black and the new Firenze Red from the Range Rover Evoque.

Interior options include Ebony Windsor or Ebony Napoli leather with contrasting stitching, a piano black finish for the centre console and new carpet mats. Front and rear parking sensors are standard.

Power comes from a 187bhp 2.2-litre turbodiesel mated to an automatic gearbox. It can get from 0-60mph in 8.7sec and reach a top speed of 118mph. The Sport model also features an ‘Intelligent Power Management System’ that charges the battery by recovering energy lost under braking. CO2 emissions are rated at 185g/km.

The Freelander special will reach UK showrooms early next year, priced from £33,945.
