The Discovery 3 'L319' was Land Rover's most sophisticated model at the time, the first all-new model to be produced under Ford's ownership and engineered entirely in Britain. With the new modular 'integrated body-frame' platform, this traditional chassis but monocoque bodyshell gave road car driving but exceptional durability off‐road.
This is one of the many pre-production L319 Discovery 3 vehicles dating from 2003.
The white and patterned black was added to camouflage the vehicle lines and styling for testing on the road prior to the launch. The rear lamps on this car are nothing like the final production standard and most of the interior trim is prototype. It is quite possibly the only surviving pre-production Discovery 3.
