The new Land Rover Discovery XXV special edition is being released to celebrate the model's 25th anniversary.

Land Rover will release a special edition Discovery in the third quarter of this year to celebrate the nameplate's 25th birthday.

The Discovery XXV Special Edition comes in a choice of four exterior colours (grey, black, white and silver), has distinctive badging and a sophisticated and premium interior lined with Windsor leather.

Pricing is yet to be released.

The HSE on which it is based starts from $96,200.

It also features black grille surrounds and mirror caps, and dark atlas features on the grille and fender vents. Silver full-length roof rails, body-coloured handles and a stainless steel bumper accessory tread plate complement the exterior.

Also featuring distinctive XXV badging on the front door and tailgate, the special edition is fitted with newly designed 20-inch five-split-spoke forged alloy wheels in a light polished-silver finish.

Building on the HSE specification, there is a choice of three interior leather colour options: ebony, cirrus or dual-tone ebony/cirrus. Additional highlights include a leather-wrapped wooden steering wheel, while Land Rover says subtle XXV embossing throughout adds to the high-quality British workmanship of the XXV Special Edition.

Other standard features will include automatic high beam assist, adaptive Xenon headlamps with signature daytime running lamps and keyless entry.
