Land Rover continues to broaden the wide appeal of the Discovery with the launch of two new special editions – the Landmark and the Graphite.  New distinctive exterior design features to both editions enhance the fourth generation Discovery, while unique interior touches to the Landmark bring more luxury and exclusivity. land

These special editions give the Discovery even greater on-road presence than ever before. Available to order now, they will be seen on the roads from January 2016 onwards.

The Discovery Landmark builds on the specification of the HSE derivative with new interior and exterior features that offer the customer a more premium and unique look and feel to their Discovery.

The exterior upgrade sees the addition of full length roof rails in a bright finish that highlight the familiar stepped roof design of the Discovery. Distinctive black fender vents, grille and mirror caps complement silver bonnet and tailgate badges, alongside Landmark badging to the side and rear to further distinguish this model. 20-inch 5-split spoke alloy wheels complete the design.

The Discovery Graphite introduces a modern and distinctive look to the model range with striking finishes.  A grey Graphite finish to the fender vents and grille, which also sports a gloss black and lighter grey frame, blend with existing grey highlights appointed to the door handles and the Discovery badging to the bonnet and tailgate.  Exclusive to the Graphite is the 19-inch 7-split spoke alloy wheel in a high gloss dark grey as standard.   You can choose between a wide spectrum of nine body, and three interior colors.  graphite

SVR Takes on Silverstone Replica

Land Rover has just released a film depicting polar explorer Ben Saunders driving the most powerful Land Rover ever produced, the Range Rover Sport SVR, on a full-scale snow-carved replica of England’s Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit.

Finnish former rally champion Minna Sillankorva accompanied Saunders on this epic undertaking, and the help was surely welcomed as the slippery three and a half mile track was a challenging surface for the 542 horsepower V8-powered SVR, which is capable of accelerating from 0-60 in a mere 4.5 seconds.

Saunders is an ambassador to Land Rover and a leader of expeditions to both the North and South Poles, Saunders stated:  “Obviously, I had an amazing day. It was my first time driving on ice and the most fun I’ve had on four-wheels. The performance of the Range Rover Sport SVR is simply breathtaking and its poise in the corners was astounding given the slippery conditions.”

The icy conditions were a bit easier to tackle thanks to the off-road technology of the Terrain Response 2 system, which automatically tailors a range of vehicle settings to suit the conditions, plus permanent four-wheel drive.

Mike Cross, chief engineer for vehicle integrity, said: “We pride ourselves on the all-terrain capability and composure of our vehicles, putting them through intensive hot and cold climate testing. The Range Rover Sport SVR is the most dynamic model we’ve ever produced and combining these qualities showcases the unique talents and expertise of our dedicated engineers.”
