Busch 51932 Metallic Silver Discovery Land Rover
With the Discovery Series I, the British off-road vehicle manufacturer Land Rover launched a new model line in 1989, which was to be cheaper than the previous vehicle types Defender and Range Rover. As Japanese off-road vehicle manufacturers were already entering the European market, fast action was required and in just three years Mike Donovan and his team developed a vehicle that was supposed to be placed between 35,000 DM and 50,000 DM according to specifications - the Discovery. In October 1989 the Discovery was presented at a price of DM 45,350, with 353,843 Series I models it even topped the popular Defender. It was probably also because the new rover appealed to a different target group because it combined good road and off-road driving characteristics.With the Series II, the successful Discovery went into the second round.In November 1998, Rover presented two new all-wheel drive variants, the light alloy 4.0-liter V8 with 136 kW (185 hp) and the 2.5-liter Td5 diesel with 102 kW (139 hp).However, the 4.6-liter V8 with 162 kW (220 hp) produced five years later was not available on the German market.In addition to the standard ABS (anti-lock braking system) with the then new braking system, there was also a four-speed automatic transmission for an additional charge of DM 4,000.With the same wheelbase, the Series II grew by 6.5 cm in length.A third row of seats could also optionally be selected in the interior, so that seven seats were available.At the end of 2002, the Discovery was subjected to a further extensive model update.Series II technical dataEngines: 4.0 - 4.6 liter petrol engine (136 - 162 kW)2.5 liter diesel engine (102 kW)Length: 4710 mmWidth: 1890 mmHeight: 1941 mmWheelbase: 2540 mmEmpty weight: 2020 - 2200 kgProduction period: 1998-2004The 1:87 model of the all-wheel drive impresses with its sharp contours and the finest engravings. Taillights and headlights are inserted separately, with the front headlights in true-to-life luminaire optics also having a chrome-plated background and thus shining particularly brightly. The window bars and rubbers are super fine printed, in short, the model is in no way inferior to the original.
