Because I needed to do something with it, here’s a shot of tennis star Maria Sharapova at the introduction of — yes, I had to look it up — the 2007 Land Rover Freelander 2:
In the States, this model is known as the LR2, and was not sold here until 2008. Maria, then an “official Land Rover ambassador” in North America, has been a fan of the brand:
“I drive a Land Rover at my home in the USA. Since I was 15 and first saw Land Rovers in the US I have admired their unique design and British-ness.”
I wonder what she thinks of the new Range Rover Evoque, a cute ute with LR guts and Victoria Beckham behind it.
