NZ to get special XXV model to mark a quarter century of the Discovery

A special edition marking 25 years of the Land Rover Discovery will be sold in New Zealand, the company has confirmed. "We are working through details at the moment, but the simple answer is yes, they will be available but no pricing as yet," a spokesman told 4wdNewz. The XXV, finished in Causeway Grey, is based on the HSE luxury specification but adding Narvik Black grille surrounds and mirror caps, full-length silver roof rails, special-design 20-inch alloys and badges on the front doors and tailgate. The fascia, instrument binnacle and door tops are covered in Windsor leather. Twist pile carpet and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are also on the list. It's expected to launch in the UK in the fourth quarter, priced at around £63,000 (approximately $125,000). So probably not something to go mud-plugging in, then.

The Discovery was introduced in 1989 to fill a gap between the Defender and Range Rover. Over its first nine years more than 392,000 were built and the Series II topped 278,500 over its six years.
By the beginning of this year, Land Rover has built 1,088,000 Discoverys at Solihull.
