Land Rover has launched a limited edition of the Discovery 4 (Known as the LR4 in North America) in the UK, dubbed the Discovery 4 Landmark Limited Edition.
The Landmark Limited Edition features a black and white theme, with exterior colour choices limited to Santorini Black or Fuji White, while the interior can only be upholstered in Ebony or Ivory leather with contrasting stitching. It also comes with a Santorini Black front grille, gloss black 20-inch alloys, Satin Black extended roof rails, and a black tint for the windows.
The only engine available on the Landmark will be the same twin-turbo V6 diesel available on the standard Discovery 4. Prices will start at £46,945 on-the-road (About $75,000 USD), with sales beginning in January. While the press release only mentions sales in the UK, a photo of an LR4 Landmark Limited Edition was attached (Which you can see in the gallery below), so the car will likely be sold elsewhere.
LAND ROVER ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF DISCOVERY 4 ‘LANDMARK’ LIMITED EDITIONS
• Sophisticated style and design with contrasting black and white colour schemes
• Class-leading off-road capability and Terrain Response TM system
• On-road refinement to match most executive saloons
• Powerful and highly efficient 3.0 litre SDV6 twin turbo diesel engine

Gaydon, Warwickshire, 18 November 2010 – Land Rover will introduce the new Discovery 4 ‘Landmark’ Limited Editions in January 2011 featuring unique Black and White colour themes.
This new variant brings a fresh, more contemporary sense of design to the latest Discovery 4 line-up. Both the Black and White models blend high-end interiors with bold, contemporary colour schemes, giving the Discovery 4 a more upmarket look. In keeping with the core appeal of the Discovery 4, this Limited Edition offers on-road refinement to match most executive saloons, the versatility of a large people carrier and unrivalled off-road capability.
“The new Landmark Limited Edition Discovery 4 has been created to offer our customers more choice,” said Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. “The Discovery 4 is already the ultimate all-purpose vehicle, but we’ve brought a new, bolder, more contemporary edge to the design, offering a higher level of luxury in the cabin.”
The Landmark is available in Santorini Black or Fuji White colour schemes. A high-specification Taurus interior leather comes in either Ebony or – for the first time in a Discovery – Ivory. Offsetting the Grand Ivory veneer with a contrasting top stitch creates a duo-tone look, offering bold colour combinations to give both versions a striking, contemporary finish.
The exterior also benefits from Santorini Black finish grille vanes, gloss black 20” 5-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels, privacy glass, and Satin Black extended roof rails that create a unique side silhouette.
The Landmark is powered by Land Rover’s highly efficient 3.0 litre SDV6 twin turbo diesel engine that offers a nine percent fuel economy improvement (EU combined cycle), compared to 2.7 litre engine it replaced and ten percent less CO2, re-affirming the brand’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.
All variants come with Land Rover’s award-winning Terrain ResponseTM system, which optimises the vehicle set-up for virtually all on-road or off-road driving situations, with five different settings to suit different terrains.
The Land Rover Discovery first went on-sale in 1989 and since then has received over 150 awards from all over the world. The Discovery 4 has won a number of awards, including, in the UK, 4×4 Magazine’s Car of the Year and the Scottish Car of the Year and, internationally, the Best 4×4 for Spain’s Car and Driver, Best Annual SUV for Autocar in China and All-Round SUV of the Year for Bloomberg’s USA.
The Discovery 4 Limited Editions will go on-sale from in the UK from January 2011, priced at £46,945 OTR.
