Sparkling new Disco bridges the gap between Land and Range Rover


Land Rover has announced that a special edition Discovery, called HSE Luxury, will go on sale in the UK in July.

Priced from £57,000, it's the most expensive Discovery ever sold and costs more than a Range Rover Sport HSE. It's just been unveiled at the New York Auto Show.

From the outside it's distinguished by bright silver detailing and a set of 20-inch, ten-spoke alloy wheels, as well as a unique shade of black paint called Santorini. The grille is different, too.

Inside, the car gets softer leather than other Discos, finished black or white, an there's leather covering the dash top, instrument cowl, arm rests and door cards. The mats are thicker, and the dashboard trim is a new dark wood veneer.

And so that passers by can be assured you're 100 percent gangsta, the stereo is a booming 825W Harmon/Kardon one, with more bass than a champion angler.

It's powered by the 253bhp TDV6 diesel found throughout the Land Rover stable, giving it an 8.8-second 0-62mph time and a 112mph top speed, for what they matter.

The Disco HSE Luxury is yet another step upwards for Land Rover, which has just announced that the next Range Rover will cost an absolute fortune.
