Land Rover celebrates Discovery’s 30th birthday

Limited edition Discovery Anniversary model gets extra kit inside and out

Land Rover is celebrating the 30th anniversary of one of its most popular nameplates with the limited-edition Land Rover Discovery Anniversary model.

Only available in the UK, the Discovery Anniversary is based on the SE specification with a few goodies from the options list thrown in.

There are four metallic colours to choose from (black, grey, blue or silver), paired with ‘Sparkle Silver’ 22-inch alloy wheels.

The Discovery SE is a mid-spec trim, which starts at £57,005 on-road. The Discovery Anniversary edition costs another £2,990 to bring this to £59,995, but includes a package of extras that would otherwise cost £6,820 on an SE.

These include the aforementioned alloy wheels and paintwork, a fixed panoramic glass roof, privacy glass for the rear windows and an upgraded Meridian 380-watt sound system.

Land Rover Discovery Anniversary - rear | The Car Expert
Unfortunately, Land Rover still hasn’t fixed that rear number plate placement

There’s nothing specific to identify the Discovery Anniversary beyond its parts-bin combination of options from the Land Rover price list, so you won’t see any stickers, badges, plaques or other unique bits anywhere on the car.

The Discover Anniversary is only available with a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, running through an eight-speed automatic gearbox and driving all four wheels. Performance is unchanged for the limited-edition model, which means a power output of 306hp gives it a 0-60mph time of 7.2 seconds, and it will go on to reach a top speed of 130mph.

The Discovery was first launched in 1989 as a mid-point between the bare-bones Land Rover (later called the Defender) and the more luxurious Range Rover. The current model is the fifth generation and has been on sale since 2017.
