DIS­COV­ERY OF A HERO

Torque (Singapore) - - NEWS -

Land Rover has built a cus­tomised ver­sion of the lat­est Dis­cov­ery SUV to serve as an ad­vanced com­mand ve­hi­cle for the Aus­trian Red Cross.

Called Project Hero, the spe­cial sup­port car comes with its own roof-mounted drone, which is able to land while the ve­hi­cle is in mo­tion, per­haps en route to a dis­as­ter area. The bird’s-eye­view footage trans­mit­ted from the air­borne drone would help emer­gency re­sponse teams to carry out their life-sav­ing mis­sions more ef­fec­tively.

The 3-litre turbo-diesel 6-cylin­der Project Hero is also equipped with a heavy-duty slid­ing boot floor, a seg­re­ga­tion panel be­hind the rear seats, ad­di­tional tool-mount­ing points, ex­tra LED lights, mul­ti­ple-fre­quency ra­dio sets and nu­mer­ous on­board power points which ac­cept a va­ri­ety of plugs from dif­fer­ent re­gions.
