Wednesday 12 October, 2016: Lookers Jaguar Land Rover West #london celebrated the launch of its luxurious new £12m showroom with a special event featuring the first showing of Land Rover’s New #discovery in the capital.  Loyal customers and VIPs were in attendance, including the awe-inspiring explorer Sir #ranulphfiennes and ‘Great Escapes’ star and marine explorer #montyhalls.

Constantly juggling TV, biology and charity projects, Monty came to Lookers West #london last night especially to spec his new #discovery having attended the exclusive unveiling event at Packington Hall last month. Monty said: “Land Rovers have been a part of my life for some 30 years, from my time in the Marines to the expeditions and TV projects they have supported me on.  I can’t imagine living without a Land Rover.  And with more equipment (and children!) to carry around with me on projects now, it is time to update my expedition partner.  New #discovery is exactly that to me – a partner. Key for me is getting my boat and trailer into and out of the water, so the towing capacity and wading credentials combined make this the perfect vehicle for me and my family. It was love at first sight, and I’ve been really excited to spec my car since the moment I saw it a few weeks ago.”

Monty took the opportunity of consulting fellow explorer Sir #ranulphfiennes on some of the options he had in mind for his new vehicle.  And there is a lot to choose from, the Land Rover Accessories team has developed a comprehensive range of additions so that customers can tailor their vehicles to their individual needs and tastes.

Furthermore the fifth-generation model benefits from Land Rover’s strong, safe and lightweight full-size #suv aluminium architecture, delivering comfort and adaptability – a prime example of which is the world-first remote Intelligent Seat Fold technology which allows drivers to configure the seven seats from either a smartphone app, through the touch-screen or a control panel in the rear of the vehicle. Configurable seating for any adventure.

Often conducting business from the road, Monty loves the benefits of the connected technology and the 3G wifi hotspot. Ingenious technology throughout means that not only can Monty look after business on the go but the family is also occupied and safe whilst he does so. The vehicle’s six 12v charging points, nine USB ports, and hot-spot connectivity for up to eight devices means that passengers can even stream music and movies whilst Monty fords a stream, the New #discovery being capable of wading up to 900mm. 

Wading capability is a key feature for Monty who is often towing his boat, making use of the incredible 3,500kg maximum offered by the New #discovery. And with a tailgate capable of carrying 300kg in weight as a viewing platform or simply as outdoor seating, even the most intrepid and digitally savvy of explorers – and their six closest friends or family – will be satisfied.

Jeremy Hicks, #uk Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover, said: “New #discovery is our best go-anywhere, do anything Land Rover ever, it has adventure in its DNA but is built for the digital age;it tows more, it wades deeper and offers a fully flexible seating package for Monty’s film crew orhis family – changing seats from his phone to fit either his work commitments or down-time withthe family. It’s no surprise to see real-world pioneers like Monty at the front of the queue for ourbest #discovery yet.”

Trademark design features include the stepped roofline, which has identified each of the four previous generations of #discovery and provides an elegant solution to a practical need. The stepped profile optimises headroom for passengers travelling in the third row of seats. It also accommodates Discovery’s customary stadium seating configuration, which sees each row of seats positioned higher than the one in front, ensuring every seat is the best seat in the house – and configurable remotely by InControl Remote application.
