The Japanese division of the British specialist automaker has decided to introduce the Discovery Sport SUV with a bang in the Land of the Rising Sun, so they’re treating clients to a special edition.
Japanese clients might want to take a break from all the special edition models released recently by 490,000 yen. The clients are only treated to a gasoline engine mated to an automatic transmission. We’re talking about the 2.0-liter direct-injected turbo delivering 240 PS, linked to the nine-speed automatic and an all-wheel drive system. With a weight of under 1.8 tons, the Discovery Sport will be close to its last name and sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 8.2 seconds.
More specifically, the new Land Rover Discovery Sport 7 Plus special edition will have a production run of 100 units – 50 of them painted in Santorini Black and the rest in Collis Gray. And as the name implies, this is the seven-seat version. The limited run model builds on the Sport HSE, with added amenities. It has 8-inch screens in the back linked to the infotainment system, standard leather upholstery in Cirrus or Almond as well as an ebony headliner. Exterior design changes include an ebony headline front grille and fender vents, as well as blacked out 19-inch 5-double-spoke wheels. Other interesting highlights include Adaptive Xenon Headlights, power tailgate, or the Driver Assist Plus Pack with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure-warning, and automatic high beam assist.
