Land Rover Discovery 4 armoured vehicle

The 2011 Land Rover Discovery 4 successfully replaced the Discovery 3, providing a legendary all-terrain capability and managing at the same time to deliver superior levels of style, luxury and performance. Its airbag restraint system for driver and front passenger improves the safety, while more power is delivered by the 5.-liter LR-V8 petrol engine. Five people and their luggage can be easily and safely transported due to a discreet armouring and a generous 500kg payload. The Discovery 4 Armoured is supplied with a full three-year, 80,000km factory warranty on the base vehicle and armour, along with comprehensive after-sales support from specialised technicians and it is an ideal choice for security organisations and government agencies. Vehicle armouring specialists from Centigon worked together in the project in order to provide blast protection against 15 kg TNT, while despite the additional mass of the armour, changes have been made to the base vehicle to ensure handling and optimum ride on all surfaces.
The outstanding all-terrain performance was delivered by advanced four-wheel-drive technologies and a faster acceleration together with a 10.6 seconds 0-100km/h sprint, was given by the 5.0-litre LR-V8 direct-injection petrol engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Discovery 4 cabin was completely redesigned with stylish and sophisticated materials, such as premium leather upholstery on the seats and sumptuous real wood veneers.
