IRVINE, Calif., May 2, 2006 – With energy-packed action and thrilling chase sequences, Land Rover’s LR3 accepts its mission: to protect Ethan Hunt from his enemies in Paramount Pictures’ highly anticipated action movie, "Mission: Impossible III."
Set to hit theaters nationwide on May 5, 2006, "M:i:III" focuses on Ethan Hunt’s most personal mission yet. In one of the film’s most incredible action sequences, Hunt gets assistance from the LR3 as he makes a courageous escape from his enemies.

"We see LR3 as the perfect fit for the film because it has a very strong presence on- and off-road," said Richard Beattie, executive vice president, Land Rover North America. "Apart from its outstanding handling and performance, the vehicle is also equipped with state-of-the-art technologies that complement the high-tech devices used in the film."

About the LR3

Since its introduction last year, LR3’s powerful on-road performance, unparalleled off-road standards, and state-of-the-art technologies have set new industry standards. During its first model year, LR3 has earned more than 20 U.S. awards, a record amount for any SUV in its introductory year.
