NEW YORK, Sept. 29 -- The 2006 Range Rover Sport makes its fashion debut this week in the window of the Ralph Lauren Sport store at 888 Madison Avenue in New York City. Land Rover has partnered with Ralph Lauren to bring to life a luxurious sporting lifestyle. This window highlights the new Ralph Lauren Bedford and Alpine Collections and the all-new Range Rover Sport. This display can be viewed now through November 7.


"Partnering with Ralph Lauren on this project was ideal for Land Rover," said Sally Eastwood, vice president of marketing for Land Rover North America. "Ralph Lauren's window provided a unique backdrop to illustrate how our vehicles complement a luxurious lifestyle."

Retailers on Madison Avenue are infamous for their creative window displays. The inspiration for Lauren's fall season window is a high-tech horse stable. The window highlights the Range Rover Sport as the vehicle of choice for a weekend trip. The setting depicts three women, dressed in clothing from the Alpine Collection, arriving at the stable on a country estate.

Vesuvius, a limited edition metallic orange color, is new to Land Rover. It is available on the Supercharged Range Rover Sport models and was a perfect match for the autumn setting depicted in the window.

The all-new Range Rover Sport is Land Rover's sports tourer delivering inspiring and refined capability on all surfaces. It is a new vehicle that unites iconic Range Rover styling with the appeal of the more sports oriented vehicle. The most aerodynamic Land Rover ever, it is designed for fast, comfortable, long distance driving and serves as the perfect complement to the flagship Range Rover. Range Rover Sport is priced at $56,750 for the naturally aspirated HSE model and $69,750 for the supercharged derivative.

Land Rover North America is part of Aston Martin Jaguar Land Rover with headquarters in Irvine, California. Land Rover established operations in the U.S. in 1986, and now imports and distributes Range Rover, LR3 and Freelander vehicles manufactured by Land Rover in Solihull, England.
