Land Rover celebrates 25 years of the Discovery with special edition model


A Land Rover Discovery XXV edition will be released into the wild to celebrate 25 years of the British workhorse.

The model will be based on the top-spec Discovery HSE Luxury, so expect lavish interior kit, such as a powerful Meridian stereo and full leather upholstery, as well as neat exterior detailing.

The Discovery XXV comes decked in a Causeway Grey colour scheme and features bespoke touches like black grille surrounds and mirror surrounds, silver roof rails and body-coloured door handles.

Of course, XXV badging will feature on multiple sites outside the vehicle and throughout the interior. Customers will also receive newly designed 20-inch five-split-spoke forged alloy wheels in a light polished-silver finish.

Inside, the XXV model builds on the Discovery's HSE Luxury specification, adding Windsor leather to the fascia, the instrument panel binnacle and door top rolls. A bespoke interior colour scheme will also further highlight the specialness of the model.

Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director at Jaguar Land Rover, said: "Since its inception the Land Rover Discovery has been pivotal to the success of the brand and has now become an iconic design in its own right. Discovery has led the way in terms of innovation, featuring technologies such as Terrain Response, which made off-roading much more accessible.

"The Discovery XXV Special Edition is the ultimate in sophisticated versatility and a fitting tribute to the legendary status of this iconic Land Rover."

The limited edition model will command a premium over the standard Discovery HSE Luxury so expect to pay around £63,000.
