Well the LR2 will go on sale in November for all of europe. The North American market will not get one till April of 2007. That gives them a good six months to get any kinks worked out in europe before it comes here.
We ordered five LR2s this past Tuesday and we will get those cars the first part of April.
Yesterday there was a grassroots meeting for Land Rover dealers and my GM got a chance to sit in and walk around the LR2.
In his words the quality of the materials and fit/finish of the vehicle nearly matches that of the Range Rover.

OK, that sucked, there was NO LR2 on display. I was very much looking forward to seeing it in real life tonight. I even thought the LR page mentioned that the LR2 would be at the seattle show. I guess however since the LR2 won't even be state side for 6 more months they decided not to include a sample vehicle.

We are not getting one for our auto show in Hartford either. They don't have enough in country right now for all of the auto shows so it is only going to major markets.
Right now there are only five in the whole country.

Thanks for compiling all of that. I had meant to do it days ago but it has been to busy at the end of the month.
Tambora Flame is the orange color that you missed.
We ordered one of those with every option including the Pixel Metallic interior.

#72 of 1131 LR2 and possible XC60?
Nov 06, 2006 (9:20 am)
The current issue of Car and Driver showed a picture of a possible Volvo XC60. The thinking is that it would share platforms with the LR2. I suppose it would not get all the off road features that a LR would have. Any word on this?
