Land Rover Freelander Black & White back for 2013Thu, 13 Dec 2012 00:00:00 -0800
Land Rover has resurrected the Black & White Limited Edition outing for the 2013 Freelander 2 with extra kit on a Freelander S for a 600 run.
Land Rover does like to divvy up a special edition at the end of the year to give car sales a bit of New Year impetus (and, if Land Rover’s recent sales figures are anything to go by, it certainly works), and this year we get the Land Rover Freelander Black & white Edition. Again.
Again, because in 2009 Land Rover pulled exactly the same special edition trick in the run-up to Christmas with the Freelander Black & White (actually, they did it a year later with the Discovery Landmark – which was also a black and white only offering), but this Freelander Black and White is based on the recently facelifted Freeelander.
The recipe is very similar though; take a Freelander S – in either eD4 two-wheel guise or TD4 4WD – add a gloss black grill, side vents and door handles, throw in privacy glass and 17″ alloys, Bluetooth and DAB – and limit the colour palette to Santorini Black or Fuji White – and you have the 2013 Freelander Black & White Limited Edition.
The Land Rover Freelander 2 Black & white Editions are already on sale in Land Rover dealers, with the Freelander B&W eD4 costing £22,495 and the TD4 version £23,495 or £24,995 if you want the auto.
