The Ultimate Driving Kitchen

Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations and TV Personality and Chef Jamie Oliver have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind kitchen on wheels! The Land Rover Discovery was chosen as the base for this incredible project. Its 82.7 cubic feet of luggage space and storage made it the perfect candidate.

The Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team was able to implement idea after idea of Oliver’s. In the end, the special Land Rover Discovery has a toaster in the center console, wheels that churn butter while the vehicle is in motion, a rotisserie powered by the power take off, a slow-cooker beside the engine, a gas burner, a pasta maker, and a foldable table and workspace. Oliver even planned for a spice rack and herb garden.

“As a team, we never imagined we would be asked to produce wheels that churn butter so it has been great fun working alongside Jamie to bring his vision to life,” David Fairbairn, Special Vehicle Operations Head of Bespoke, said. “He really wanted to push the boundaries of what was possible with this versatile vehicle and the team fully embraced the challenge. The Discovery helps our customers make every day an adventure, and this special vehicle will give Jamie and his family the change to cook amazing meals during a road trip.”

Other features of the custom Land Rover Discovery include an aluminum sink, a flat screen TV, a spice drawer, a custom Land Rover barbecue, olive oil and vinegar dispenser, salt and pepper grinder, ice cream maker, jam store, a rotisserie and pasta cutter, and a custom mortar and pestle.

Oliver will be sharing about the building and design process on his Food Tube channel in a three-part-series. The first episode is available now.

The Land Rover Discovery is so versatile it is perfect for every family! Are you interested in learning more about the Land Rover Discovery? Contact us at Land Rover Frisco! We look forward to assisting you soon!

Discovery Shows Off Towing Capability

To announce the arrival of the 2018 Land Rover Discovery HSE Td6, Land Rover took the new Discovery to the Australian Outback and had it attempt to tow an impressive amount.

First, the Land Rover Discovery HSE Td6 towed a seven-trailer semi-truck almost 10 miles. Finally, the Land Rover Discovery towed a 328-ft road train. The Land Rover Discovery HSE Td6 “has a maximum permissible towing capacity of 7,716 lbs on public roads. However, it was able to tow a 121 ton road train 9.9 miles. This was possible by the Discovery HSE Td6’s four-wheel-drive traction, 254hp 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine, and 443-lb ft of torque.

Towing extreme capacities is a tradition of Land Rover’s when it comes to launching a new Discovery model. The original Discovery pulled a train in 1989, and last year the Discovery Sport premium compact SUV towed rail carriages above the Rhine river.

“Towing capability has always been an important part of Discovery DNA and the raw weight of the road train tells only half the story here,” Quentin Spottiswoode, Land Rover Product Engineer, said. “Pulling a rig and seven trailers, with the rolling resistance of so many axles to overcome, is a huge achievement. We expected the vehicle to do well, but it passed this test with flying colors, hitting 27 mph along its 10-miles route.”

Discovery HSE Td6 buyers will be able to opt for the Advanced Tow Assist technology. This technology helps with reversing “by providing responsive trajectory lines on the rear camera feed to the central touchscreen.” Other towing capabilities include Rear Height Assist, Hitch Assist, and Trailer Stability Assist.

Land Rover Frisco is so excited about the launch of the new Discovery HSE Td6. Are you interested in learning more about it? Contact us today! We cannot wait to share our love of Land Rover with you!

Teams Gear Up for Invictus Games

Land Rover Frisco is so excited about the upcoming Invictus Games! The Invictus Games is an “international adaptive sporting event for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women” that Jaguar Land Rover is a key sponsor for! The very first Invictus Games were held in 2014 in London, United Kingdom. 17 nations will be competing in this year’s Games that will be held in Toronto, Canada in September.

Land Rover Frisco is excited that the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge will be the opening event of the Games! The team from the United Kingdom (where Jaguar Land Rover’s headquarters are) have been hard at work preparing. Only two members of the team will compete in the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge.

The team started the day working on their speed and precision in Jaguar F-PACEs in a slalom challenge at Cotswold Airport. Later in the day the team worked on their planning, teamwork, and communication skills while off-roading routes in Land Rover Discoverys near Eastnor Castle.

Land Rover ambassadors, Olympic Medallist, Zara Tindall, and England Rugby World Cup winner, Lewis Moody, were with the team to provide encouragement and insight as they prepared.

“The Invictus Games is a very special event, and I’ve loved meeting all the competitions here today,” Zara Tindall said. “It was really hard to select just two people to take part in the Driving Challenge in Toronto; each and every one of those we met has the will to win and would do a fantastic job. Once again, it’s an absolute honor for me to be involved with Jaguar Land Rover and with the Invictus Games and I am really looking forward to watching these guys when they actually get to compete at the Games.”

The 2017 Invictus Games will take place September 23 – 20. In addition to the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge, events include archery, cycling, golf, swimming, sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball, and more!

Land Rover Frisco is excited to cheer on the United States team as they compete!

The Land Rover BAR team and Land Rover have been working together for two years to design the boat the team will be using. Land Rover’s engineers and designers have thought through every scenario, designed a steering wheel using Human Machine Interface technologies, and implemented e-ink display screens. The Land Rover BAR team is definitely capable of bringing home the oldest trophy in international sport competition.

“As pioneers in the car industry we couldn’t thin of a better opportunity than to support the British America’s Cup team in their quest to win the hardest, and indeed oldest sporting trophy,” Mark Cameron, Land Rover Experiential Marketing Director, said. “Land Rover has been involved in sailing for a number of years, therefore being a part of the pinnacle event and having the opportunity to put our knowledge and expertise into the R1 race boat is a great showcase of a true industry collaboration between marine and automotive.”

“It has been a pleasure and privilege to help Ben and his Land Rover BAR team make it this far, and we can’t wait to see them competing in the Cup itself. Land Rover will be offering its full support from around the globe and we wish the team the best of luck.”

The America’s Cup qualifying rounds started May 26. One of six teams will be eliminated before the playoffs begin on June 4.
