THE CCW VIEW
It’s been 28 years since the original Discovery made its debut, but it has taken a long time for the wider classic car community to accept this capable 4x4 into its ranks. Explosive rises in prices for Series Land Rovers and Range Rover Classics have no doubt played their part, as those who feel as though they’ve been priced out of the Green Oval market consider other avenues.
Not that the Discovery itself hasn’t seen its prices on the rise. With so many used and perhaps abused in the pursuit of mudplugging, and often being modified purely for this purpose, original examples are getting rare, with the market responding accordingly.
Nonetheless, there are few vehicles that can combine the Discovery’s unique mix of genuine heritage, practicality, capability and affordability in the way that this 4x4 can. It’s still possible to find yourself a really good V8 Disco for well under £3000 – to our mind that’s absolutely phenomenal value.
