Yes, you would be. But maybe not as stupid as the disposable income people that paid $25K over list for the ones around here.
Anyway, this makes it look mild:
LAND ROVER NORTH AMERICA SHOWS CUSTOMIZED RANGE ROVER SPORT IN VEGAS
Land Rover Partners with Troy Lee Designs for SEMA 2005
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 1, 2005 - Land Rover North America today presents the first Range Rover Sport to appear at the annual Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (SEMA) show. Celebrating a successful U.S. launch earlier this summer, Land Rover unveils a concept from the custom paint shop of Troy Lee Designs, a major supplier and designer of premium motorcycle, ATV, and bicycle competition apparel.
Inspired by the ‘technicolors’ of Las Vegas, the Range Rover Sport Supercharged is packed with details. Completed in Southern California at Faerber Productions, Land Rover’s long-time product development partner, the 10-stage painting process was conceived and executed by Troy Lee Designs.
Starting with three coats of House of Kolor™ black paint for the base color, the process included over 250 hours – from base coat to hand painted design and finishing. This includes innovative design details throughout the vehicle – most impressively the application of 12 karat white gold leaf for the Range Rover lettering. Using colors ranging from Tru Blu Metallic to Candy Tangerine and Cherry Pearl, the end result delivers a one-of-a-kind creation that immediately states ‘Vegas.’
“At this year’s SEMA show, Land Rover wanted to celebrate the success of the Range Rover Sport launch,” said Land Rover Brand Manager Greg Gilliland. “The driving concept was a Range Rover Sport for Las Vegas .”
The 2006 Range Rover Sport’s interior is complete with hand-painted Candy Apple Red trim, and a customized, ultra-premium 1000-watt harman/kardon® LOGIC7™ audio system.
“Land Rover wanted a vehicle uniquely designed for Las Vegas, so I got out the spray guns and went for it,” said Troy Lee, owner Troy Lee Designs. “The result is a Range Rover Sport with a scheme inspired by the ‘technicolors’ of Vegas.”

Regarding Mileage, my RRS HSE currently reads Avg MPG at 8.1 MPG. Is this normal????

Got a Silver RRS SC with ACC, PTI, DVD, and Sirius. While there are many shared parts with the LR3, this is an entirely different beast. Wonderful handling, very powerful, very tight. I have no complaints about interior.. I think Land Rover wanted a tasteful, subtle interior. A great, great vehicle!

Depends on your driving style so it might be.
Are you flooring it around every corner and from every stop light and doing almost no highway driving.

Only city driving at the moment. I keep my RPMs under 2.5.

I've currently got around 400 miles on my RRS and am at 8.5 mpg. I do a lot of city driving unfortunately most of the time in traffic, and also a lot of driving through the Hills. I figure the combo of the two plus no driving on the highway is why my mpg is so poor. It's a good thing gas is so affordable these days!

When I got my RRS SC, it had 7 miles on it. I just put my first 250 miles on it, and got 12.1 mpg. I was not driving hard, but was pleased with the mileage on this first tank.
