Land Rover Presents UK-Bound Discovery 4 “Landmark” Limited Edition

A new pair of limited edition versions will soon expand the range of Land Rover's Discovery. Set to launch in the UK market in January 2011 with prices starting from £46,945, the "Landmark" Limited Edition will be offered in two colors, Santorini Black or Fuji White.

"The new Landmark Limited Edition Discovery 4 has been created to offer our customers more choice", said Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. "The Discovery 4 is already the ultimate all-purpose vehicle, but we've brought a new, bolder, more contemporary edge to the design, offering a higher level of luxury in the cabin".

On the outside, the Disco receives a Santorini Black finish on the front grille, new roof rails and 20-inch alloy wheels with a 5-spoke design and glossy black diamond-turned coating.

The exterior tones are complemented by a more upscale Taurus leather interior, which can be specified in Ebony or, for the first time in a Discovery, Ivory. For the latter, designers used contrasting stitching in order to create a duo-tone look.

Under the hood, all Landmark models get a 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo diesel which is economical than the older 2.7-liter unit, offering a 9% fuel economy improvement and emitting 10% less CO2.
