Oxford Diecast Land Rover Discovery 2 Metallic Epsom Green

Product Code: 76LRD2001

New tooling fills an important gap in Oxford’s Land Rover Discovery timeline with this 1:76 scale model of the Discovery Series II which spanned the marque’s manufacture at the Solihull plant between 1998 and 2004. It had been enhanced to look less utilitarian than its predecessor, the Series I, both inside and out. The extended rear provided more cargo space and the interior seating was now all forward facing. The Discovery Series II was the last Land Rover product to use an evolution of the original 1970 Range Rover underpinnings with its extended 185” long body sitting on a short 100” wheelbase. The series was classed as a 5-door estate and it came with a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed automatic transmission. Engine size options comprised the 4.0L Rover V8 (petrol), 4.6L Rover V8 (petrol or the 2.5L Td5 15 (diesel) which is the subject of our model. The Td5 in-line direct-injected straight-five engine was an electronically managed engine proving smoother at lower revs than its predecessors, having been developed by Land Rover from the Rover L series car engine.

The Oxford model is registered GK54 PWZ from the very last months of production in 2004, before being superseded by the Series 3.  From 2002, some ‘facelift’ features had been introduced including newly styled headlamps, newly designed brake lights on the rear, as well as indicators being moved higher up the vehicle from their previous bumper position. Our new model incorporates the physical features of the real thing. Smartly decorated in a deep metallic green, the interior and exterior trim is finished almost completely in black. Authentic silver ‘alloy’ wheels,  the Land Rover badge on the rear door with the Land Rover Discovery Td5 designation printed in silver and black round off the vehicle.

Slot this latest addition in between the Series 1, 3, 4 and 5 models in the Oxford Land Rover Discovery line-up.
