The vehicle was a 2.2-liter diesel in Barolo Black destined for a customer in Brazil - one of its fastest growing markets. Land Rover is the leading SUV brand in the country with a 40% market share. Freelander was also Land Rover's biggest selling model last year, retailing around 52000 units globally.
