Land Rover Discovery 4 Armoured


Land Rover announced the latest edition of their armoured Discovery SUV for 2011.

Based on the Discovery 4 model, this new bullet-proof car offers the same practicality, capability and convenience of the standard model, with the exact same appearance, but with ability to withstand shots by machine guns and even explosion up to 15 kilo of TNT or equivalent.

Since the armoured version weighs in excess of 4000 kg, Land Rover has replaced the standard V6 diesel with a 5.9 liter petrol V8 which gives decent performance.
