Limited Edition Land Rover Discovery 4 unveiled

The British-based car maker has not revealed how limited sales of the Discovery 4 ‘Landmark’ will be, but they will be priced from £46,945.

For that price, the Discovery SUV is given a cosmetic makeover to both the exterior and interior, but Land Rover has not seen fit to replace the new, more efficient 3.0-litre V6 engine used in standard models.

Outside, the black or white colour schemes are instantly noticeable. On both variations, the Landmark 4×4 includes black finish on the grille vanes, gloss black 20" five-spoke, diamond-turned alloy wheels and privacy glass.

There are also extended black roof rails to differentiate the profile of the Landmark special edition from standard models.

The changes continue inside, where ebony or ivory colour schemes are available. These include contrasting stitching and a Grand Ivory veneer.

Despite adding the styling touches, the Discovery 4 4×4 off-roader is still as capable as ever and comes with Land Rover’s Terrain Response system offering settings for on- and off-road driving.

The rugged all-rounder is equally at home on and off the road, and Land Rover is hoping to take advantage of growing sales with the latest special edition models.

The Land Rover Discovery 4 offers a more practical alternative to a standard executive saloon but more versatility than a larger SUV.

The Discovery 4 Limited Editions will go on-sale from in the UK from January 2011, priced at £46,945 OTR.

They sit near the top of the Discovery 4 range, which consists of the entry-level GS, XS and range-topping HSE. Prices for the GS start from £35,995.

XS and HSE models start from £42,445 and £49,695. While all models come extremely well equipped, the HSE model offers the height of Land Rover luxury and equipment.
