JAMIE Oliver and Jaguar Land Rover have teamed up to cre­ate the ul­ti­mate kitchen on four wheels.

The move – aimed at high­light­ing the ver­sa­til­ity of a Land Rover Dis­cov­ery – sees the celebrity chef’s SUV kit­ted out with all man­ner of cook­ing fea­tures.

The Naked Chef’s ve­hi­cle fea­tures ev­ery­thing from a slow- cooker, bar­be­cue and ice cream maker to an olive oil dis­penser.

Im­pres­sively, it will even churn but­ter as you drive. Yes. Se­ri­ously.

Jaguar Land Rover’s Spe­cial Ve­hi­cle Op­er­a­tions team in Ry­ton- onDun­smore worked with life- long Land Rover fan and cus­tomer Jamie to bring his vi­sion to life.

And the re­sult is truly unique.

Jamie’s mo­tor is the only Dis­cov­ery in the world that has a toaster in the cen­tre con­sole and a ro­tis­serie driven by the power take- off.

Other in­ge­nious fea­tures in­clude a slow- cooker that sits be­side the engine, a pasta maker, a gas hob and a de­ploy­able din­ing ta­ble and work­top. There is even a herb gar­den and spice rack in the rear win­dows.

“I gave Land Rover a mas­sive chal­lenge to cre­ate the ul­ti­mate kitchen on wheels,” says Jamie. “I dreamed big and asked for a lot, and what they’ve done has blown my mind. I didn’t think they’d ac­tu­ally be able to put a slow­cooker next to the engine and an olive oil dis­penser in the boot, but they did.

“The re­sult is an amaz­ing Dis­cov­ery, tai­lored per­fectly for me and the fam­ily – we love it. This unique cre­ation means we can take our culi­nary adventures to the next level.”

David Fair­brain, head of be­spoke at Spe­cial Ve­hi­cle Op­er­a­tions, said: “As a team, we never imag­ined we would be asked to pro­duce wheels that churn but­ter so it has been great fun work­ing along­side Jamie to bring his vi­sion to life.

“He re­ally wanted to push the bound­aries of what was pos­si­ble with this ver­sa­tile ve­hi­cle.

The Be­spoke team was cre­ated by Spe­cial Ve­hi­cle Op­er­a­tions to en­able us to re­ally un­der­stand our most dis­cern­ing clients’ needs, so we can tai­lor ve­hi­cles to suit their life­style.”
