DIS­COV­ERY 2

1998 TO 2004

Land Rover Monthly - - Price Check -

THE DIS­COV­ERY 2 re­tained the stepped-roof looks and ba­sic shape of its pre­de­ces­sor, but got an im­proved bodyshell and sus­pen­sion, along with new en­gines and axles. It was the best-han­dling Land Rover in its day and there are plenty to choose from. V8 petrols are ex­pen­sive to run, Td5 diesels eco­nom­i­cal. The bod­ies last well, but the chas­sis is very prone to spec­tac­u­lar lev­els of rust – putting many ex­am­ples beyond eco­nomic re­pair. BUYER’S TIP: It's vi­tal to check that chas­sis for cor­ro­sion. SPEC­I­FI­CA­TIONS

Td5: 2.5-litre five-cylin­der turbo diesel, 122 bhp, 221 lb-ft torque.

V8: 4-litre V8 petrol, 185 bhp, 235 lb-ft torque. R380 man­ual or ZF four-speed auto, per­ma­nent four-wheel drive.

PRICE GUIDE Poor: £1000 – £1700 Av­er­age: £1700 – £2400 Good: £2400 – £3900 Ex­cel­lent: £3900 – £8000
