Whitley, UK, April 4 2012 – Land Rover today reveals the new Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Special Edition at the New York Motor Show.
Available exclusively in Santorini Black, the new Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Special Edition is guaranteed to turn heads with a distinctive new exterior look. Bright silver finishing picks out the full-length roof rails and complements the Noble plated door mirror caps and Titan Silver bonnet script and tailgate badge. The grille treatment is the opposite of the existing style, the grille surround and fender vents finished in Indus Silver and the grille vanes in body colour.
Subtle yet sophisticated detailing is carried through to the rear of the vehicle by a bright finisher along the sides and tailgate, completed by a bright, stainless steel bumper tread strip and a unique bright metal badge showcasing 'HSE LUXURY'. Door handles are in body colour and the exterior is finished off with a set of 20-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels.
