Story and History

1998 Land Rover Discovery II - Press Launch Vehicle

*** Under Offer - Already ***

What a really nice opportunity to own one of these pre-production Discovery II

Couldn't refuse really

A nice, early car registered in August '98 when the the Press launch was in September and the Public launch in the UK wasn't until the end of November and for the rest of the World it was held back until 1999

This is one of the VOA cars used specifically for the re-run of the Hannibal trip across the Alpes 2000 years ago

The trip was undertaken to highlight the brilliant off road capabilites of these updated Discoveries

Much positive press was generated as well as the opportunity to advertise the expedition under the Best 4x4xFar banner

This is the second of the Series which we have owned and this example is probably unique, as she left the Factory as ES version and with the Manual gearbox - something which was never offered to the public

We like the specification of the top of the range ES (twin electric sunroofs, electric seats, leather trim, 7 seats, air conditioning, alloy wheels, Harmon Kardon stereo upgrade etc etc) and runs the lovely 4.0 litre petrol V8. A really smooth and powerful engine, which makes the car so refined

Land Rover have borrowed our Discovery II for the Launch of the Discovery V for 2 International Shows in China in 2017 - much correspondence and also some photo's come with the history folder

Along with this the vehicle has a full history since new which includes, the original book pack, instruction manual & a period brochure too

So a period piece of Land Rover history
