".....The result was the Range Rover, launched in 1970 to immediate and ecstatic acclaim. Its famous design was uniquely honoured when it went on display at the Louvre gallery in Paris....."

I guess they forgot about that

Yeah, right. They'll ban SUVs unless being used to transport French officials.
