Maybe it’s just where I live, but it seems I’ve never seen a Land Rover with any mud on its flanks. That’s a real shame since the Britsh-born marque makes some of the sickest off-road capable vehicles. It appears Land Rover noticed the same thing and has decided to offer something that the yoga pants and latte crowd will look past, while the denim and beef jerky set pays attention. According to Land Rover communications:
- The new Discovery SVX revealed at Frankfurt Motor Show is a production preview of the ultimate all-terrain Land Rover Discovery, with a 525PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8 gas powertrain
- Most extreme Land Rover yet, with go-anywhere capability – increased ground clearance, body and suspension lifts, more wheel articulation and large all-terrain tires
- Specially tuned Terrain Response 2 system and Active Roll Control are firsts for new Discovery
- Discovery SVX will be the first Land Rover assembled by hand at the SVO Technical Centre when production begins in 2018
Here are all 15 photos of the latest off-road beast to surface from the SVO shed garage. Get your jerky ready?
