A fabulous Land Rover Discovery XS 300Tdi Series One with 46,490 miles.
Steel box chassis with aluminium body panels, driver’s air bag, side impact bars, quartz halogen headlamps, perimetric and volumetric alarm, rear door mounted spare wheel, seven seats, digital clock, cigar lighter, padded steering wheel, delayed interior lighting, illuminated vanity mirror, electric pack- windows, heated door mirrors, headlamp power wash, Travellers Audio Choice, remote central locking. Factory fitted options: Towing pack 3,500 Kg limit with electric headlamp levelling, ‘Skyline Choice’ twin sunroofs. Dealer options; Spare wheel cover.
Finished in factory original Altai Silver Metallic, (Code 567), the paintwork boasts a bright polished shine and uniform finish. This low mileage example certainly has never exploited its off-road capabilities leaving all factory panels preserved and damage free. Only tiny paint chips and minor markings to the plastic trim will show upon very close scrutiny, utterly insignificant. The underside and common vulnerable areas associated with early Discovery’s have remained in excellent order, as have all robust and chunky trim sections and Land Rover badged light lenses. Main Dealer branded number plates and spare wheel cover remain fitted, as do the original XS decals to the lower doors, a feature often lost on used and abused examples. A very well cared for Series One Discovery, virtually impossible to find in such wonderful pampered condition.
This low mileage protected interior remains exactly as Land Rover intended. The Discovery XS part leather trim with unique Land Rover centre panels is spotlessly clean and wear free with even the driver’s bolster firm and intact. The matching grey carpeting has been fully protected by heavy duty Land Rover rubber mats which extend to the large rubber boot floor protector leaving the luggage area pristine. All controls and switchgear feel like new and operate seamlessly, including the Discovery Travellers Audio Choice stereo. The steering wheel shows the prominent natural veins found only on such low mileage vehicles. Two additional folding rear seats as standard on the high specification XS models make this seven-seater a perfect retro family recreation vehicle. The perfect blend of comfort and luxury versus rugged and tough.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 300Tdi 2.5 diesel turbocharged and intercooled engine needs little introduction with proven strength, reliability and simplicity. Producing 111.3 bhp with an impressive 265 Nm of torque at just 1,800rpm, pulling power is guaranteed. This pampered example even boasts a super clean engine bay with factory plates and stickers as well as genuine Land Rover service items clearly visible. Impressive capabilities to include minimum under axle clearance of 215mm and normal wading depth of 500mm show why Land Rover set the standard for 4x4 manufacturers worldwide. A tough manual gearbox with high/low transfer giving 8 forward and 2 reverse gears is light with an accurate progressive clutch.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Factory original and XS specific ‘Sculptured’ alloy wheels are immaculate and unmarked. Expensive branded Hankook 235/70 R16 tyres grace all four corners with masses of tread. Power assisted dual circuit hydraulic disc brakes on all four wheels bring this machine to an assured halt easily.
Supplied new on the 6th February 1998 by Land Rover Main Dealer, Lode Lane of Solihull, this example was registered to the dealer themselves as a demonstrator. The first private keeper, Mr Mick Richardson, purchased the car through the Land Rover Approved Used Vehicle Scheme with Stonelake Land Rover of Wakefield and kept the car until 2014, where after the second private keeper, Mr Matthew Prescott, has owned it since. The incredibly low 46,490 miles covered is fully verified with absolutely every MOT certificate kept in the history file from the first in 2001 to present. The original immaculate leather document wallet contains the service book with factory build sticker and 11 stamped entries, the last being November 2017. All handbooks, guides and dealership literature are also present. Completing the history file is a collection of invoices and three keys with both remote fobs.
Now firmly established as a modern classic off roader, preserved examples are fast becoming highly sought after, and a fabulous addition/alternative to a defender. This cossetted Discovery will delight enthusiasts and collectors alike.
MOT November 2018, HPI Clear.
