Land Rover has reason to rejoice this month as the company celebrates 25 years of the Discovery. In commemoration of this milestone it is releasing a special XXV Special Edition. The Special Edition offers distinctive visual style and premium interiors combined with the capability it so famous for.
By the beginning of 2014 1,088,000 Discovery units had been produced at Jaguar Land Rover's Solihull manufacturing plant in the UK West Midlands. 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.”
This special edition of the popular SUV is available in Causeway Grey, it features Narvik Black grille surrounds and mirror caps while Dark Atlas features on the grille and fender vents. Silver full-length roof rails, body-coloured handles and a stainless steel bumper accessory tread plate complement the exterior.
Also featuring distinctive XXV badging on the front door and tailgate, the special edition is fitted with newly designed 20-inch five-split-spoke forged alloy wheels in a light polished-silver finish.
Coming to the interiors, the XXV Special Edition builds on the Discovery’s HSE Luxury specification, to create a sophisticated and premium interior. The XXV will feature a unique interior colour way in Cirrus. Additional luxurious highlights include twist pile carpet mats and a leather-wrapped wooden steering wheel, while subtle XXV embossing throughout .
In India, Land Rover has plans to expand its Discovery range. It made its strategy clear at the sidelines of the launch of the Range Rover LWB in November, 2013. The release issued by the company, however, did not state how many units of this special edition we are looking at or the places it will be available in.
