It’s already being billed as the ultimate all-terrain vehicle and the new Land Rover Discovery SVX is an impressive offering.
It is helped with a 5.0 litre V8 supercharged petrol engine producing 525 bhp and along with increased ground clearance, suspension lifts and larger all-terrain tyres, this really is a go anywhere vehicle.
The body has also been lifted, there’s greater wheel articulation, active roll control and the firm’s added its tuned Terrain Response 2 system.
Buyers will need deep pockets since this Discovery will cost far in excess of the current £70,000 top price for a Discovery.
The Land Rover Discovery SVX has been developed
The reason for this is that the Land Rover Discovery SVX has been developed by the firm’s special vehicle operations unit and will sit alongside luxury offerings including the SVAutobiography.
The engine will help deliver the go anywhere attitude with 625Nm of torque that is mated to an eight speed automatic transmission.
The cabin has also been revamped with bespoke seats and there’s a gear stick installed instead of the usual rotary control found in a Discovery.
There’s even a roof mounted light pod to help with unlit roads and mountain tracks and a unique paint finish.
Get this car on personal contract hire
One reason for the high price tag is that the Discovery SVX will be hand-built with production starting early next year.
Land Rover has also unveiled a number of tweaks to its range including a new 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine available for British buyers which produces 296 bhp and has emissions of 222g/km.
Buyers will also be able to configure their digital instrument panel and Land Rover is also offering a head-up display, an air ioniser and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot in the Discovery.
The new Discovery SVX is available to order now.
