The new variant has a distinctive new exterior look replete with bright silver detailing, and is described by Land Rover’s global brand director John Edwards as, “probably the most luxurious specification yet offered on the Discovery 4”.
Available only in Santorini Black, the new Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Special Edition has silver finishing to the full-length roof rails, Noble-plated door mirror caps, silver bonnet script and tailgate badge, a bright finisher along the sides and tailgate, a stainless steel bumper tread strip and a bright metal ‘HSE Luxury’ badge.
The grille treatment is the opposite of the existing style, with the grille surround and fender vents finished in silver and the grille vanes in the body colour. The Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Special Edition rides on a set of 20-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels.
The interior of the HSE Luxury Edition is clad in premium Ebony or Ivory leather. Extra Windsor leather is applied to the facia topper, door top rolls and door trims, and the cabin is trimmed with Zebrano wood, which is exclusive to the HSE Luxury Edition.
The special edition also has upgrades including an 825-watt Harman Kardon Logic7 audio system. The specification is completed by rear-screen entertainment with 8in screens and wireless headphones; privacy glass and a front centre console cooler box.
The Discovery 4 Limited Edition is powered by the 252bhp SDV6 diesel engine, which covers 0-60mph times in 8.8sec and has a top speed of 112mph when mated to the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Land Rover Discovery 4 HSE Luxury Special Edition goes on sale in the UK from July with prices starting at £56,995.
