 LAND ROVER DELIVERS OCTOBER SURPRISE;
 NEW FLAGSHIP MODEL SPURS COMPANY TO RECORD OCTOBER SALES
 LANHAM, Md., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Sales of Land Rover-built sport utility vehicles, the Range Rover County LWB, Range Rover County and Defender 110, totaled 529 in October, the second-best one-month total in the company's history. The results represent an impressive 141-percent increase over the same month a year ago.
 "Our October sales figure, paced by interest in the new Range Rover County LWB and Land Rover Defender 110, is a resounding signal that people who have been on the sidelines for some time are through waiting and are ready to buy," said Charles R. Hughes, president, Land Rover North America, Inc. "Our dealers were virtually sold out of the new County LWB, a watershed vehicle among sport utilities with its unique air suspension system."
 Several of Land Rover's 80 U.S. dealers set one-month sales records as well.
 Land Rover introduced the Range Rover County LWB (long wheelbase) on Oct. 1, 1992, to international press acclaim.
 The most significant product action since the Range Rover's introduction in 1970, the County LWB features limousine-like passenger comfort thanks to a wheelbase increased by eight inches.
 With the world's first electronic air suspension and traction control in a sport utility vehicle, the County LWB is attracting buyers to its unique combination of advanced technology and classic design.
