Land Rover have developed a one-off Discovery designed to be more countrified than ever before. Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division have developed the Country Pursuits Concept Discovery.
This is primarily aimed at estate managers and for conservation duties, but also those who enjoy sporting activities in the countryside. This one-off design with most likely to come into production in the future.
On the outside the Country Pursuits looks more rural than ever thanks to 19-inch alloys shod with chunky mud-terrain 255/55R19 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tyres, and Aintree Green Paint with a grey contrasting roof. It is based on a Discovery HSE Luxury 3.0-litre TD6, inside there’s the usual rear seat entertainment package and climate seats trimmed in Ebony leather, but it’s in the back where Country Pursuits becomes more bespoke.
The usual third row of seats are removed and the space is replaced with an Ebony veneered cabinet for four guns; two lower drawers are for gun cartridges and accessories and a divider. The remaining space is intended for two dogs or for hanging game!
Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations built the car following customer enquiries for this type of Discovery. So far, just one car has been built and Land Rover will spend the winter marketing the car to potential buyers and gauge their reactions. Full production is likely with models potential costing around £80,000 for the top spec HSE Luxury version, or for around £5,000, the modifications could be made to a lesser model or an existing customer car.
