Trim upgrade for Land Rover Discovery, now includes bulletproofing

If the bulletproof Range Rover is a little too ostentatious then Land Rover has a great new car for you – the Discovery Armoured.

Perfect for the Bogota school run, the bulletproof Discovery can withstand 33lbs of TNT, armour-piercing machine gun rounds and even high-explosive hand grenades.
The air-spring suspension and disc brakes have been beefed up to cope with the extra weight, but the Discovery still has the same 5.0-litre V8 found in the standard car. It's good for 375bhp and will get the car from 0-60 in 10.4 seconds.
