Road Trip - - ROAD READY -

Land Rover has en­hanced its record­break­ing Dis­cov­ery Sport range with a new spe­cial edi­tion. The new Land­mark Edi­tion salutes the suc­cess of the Dis­cov­ery Sport as the fastest-sell­ing Land Rover of all time – co­in­cid­ing with the year-long 70th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions of the brand.

The Land­mark comes in a unique colour and trim com­bi­na­tion and is avail­able with the 132 W 2.0-litre diesel In­ge­nium Td4 en­gine. More than 350,000 Dis­cov­ery Sports have been sold glob­ally since its in­tro­duc­tion in 2014, with 126,078 mod­els sold last year – the best sin­gle-model an­nual sales in the 70-year his­tory of Land Rover.

The first model built on 30 April, the 70th birth­day of Land Rover, at the Land Rover Hale­wood plant in Mersey­side, was a Dis­cov­ery Sport. This ve­hi­cle will be used to sup­port a num­ber of projects in 2018.

The Land­mark is avail­able in three colours: Narvik Black, Corris Grey, and Yu­long White, all crowned with a Carpathian Grey con­trast roof. It fea­tures a sporty and dy­namic front bumper, with Graphite At­las ex­te­rior ac­cents and 19-inch ‘Man­tis’ wheels in Gloss Dark Grey.

The in­te­rior fea­tures Ebony grained leather seats and an Ebony headliner com­ple­mented by dark grey alu­minium fin­ish­ers around the cen­tre stack. The Dis­cov­ery Sport Land­mark Edi­tion will be avail­able lo­cally from 2 Septem­ber.
