Some words - cars

General car gossip.

Where are all the new Discoveries? I think I've seen one. The roads are choked with Discovery 3s and 4s, but now each time i think I've seen one of the new ones it turns out to be a new Range River Short or one of the littler Discovery Sports. Have Land Rover accidentally competed themselves out of the market by having really good cars either side of the Discovery in the range?

Far from competing themselves out of the market they're booming. But they're doing so by plugging gaps in the way BMW/Merc/Audi do. i.e. offering something which is a tiny bit different to the other cars in the line up. They have 6 options now with a further 5 coming up by 2020. RR, RR Sport, RR Evoque, RR Velar, Disco & Disco Sport

They're there >waves hand around< but they've only just been launched.

I also find they're not really that distinguishable amongst the other models. Quiz time. Which one is which? eta also guess the price they each start at

Difficult to gauge the Velar from pics. I think the Disco Sport looks good in pics but is "wrongly small" in real life. From the price of the Velar I predict the same.

I don't know what it's for, but it's the name the original prototype RRs went by before they were announced.

Can't believe that the car's ok in those pics - looks properly knackered! Like his face I suppose - looks disabled but isn't officially.

Yes, it's actually being fantastic so as you say it's just like my face.

PS It's definitely something James Bond, it's like we found each other because we belonged together.

Laugh at actual freedom of information request.


FEI, my freedom of information request has finally been granted by the MoD and I have some info onthis car's history.

I'm not at home currently but will digest and divulge the info once I'm home and able to. Could be good, could be shit...

I'll start a new thread when I get a chance. It's totally worth it and you will never want to sell that car.

The not-knowing-for-sure-whether-it's-sarcasm is superb here. I am interested either way. Both ways.
