When it comes to true multi-terrain vehicles which also offer a high level of luxury, refinement and comfort then the Land Rover Discovery is quite simply the class leader. Great to drive, comfortable, practical, usable, with lots of luxurious factory options – it’s easy to see why the Land Rover Discovery has remained a popular choice for motorists for over twenty years.

This is the Metropolis Limited Edition model. Land Rover only made 300 of these rare cars, and they represented their absolute top-of-the-line model (eclipsing even the might HSE model in specification). Put simply – the Land Rover Discovery 3 does not come any better than the Metropolis!

With regards to what this car features – it’s genuinely hard to know where to start as it’s packed with literally every option Land Rover produced…

This is the 7 seat model, and all five of the rear seats fold flat into the floor when not needed to offer a truly gargantuan load space. The rear passengers will be entertained by the DVD player with 10” screen (and remote control) which folds down from the ceiling. And if they get bored of movies then there are also 25 in-built games and the car comes complete with wireless joypad!

The DVD player sounds simply fantastic as all of the audio is pumped through the Harmon Kardon 7.1 surround sound speaker system. Car audio rarely comes better than this!

Moving through into the front, the car features a full touch-screen Sat Nav system, which also displays the 4 wheel drive options if required. The car is of course fitted with various suspension and 4x4 modes, and in addition this car has been retro-fitted with a fantastic Nokia Blue Tooth unit for hands free calls.

See the list at the end for full specification – there really is too much to describe! If we’ve missed anything then please do give us a call to check – but rest assured that the Metropolis is the highest-specification Discovery that Land Rover ever produced!

This model is fitted with the excellent 2.7 litre Turbo Diesel V6 engine, which provides a very capable 187bhp. The car is wonderful to drive – and has a great amount of acceleration for such a large car. Long gone are the days of the sluggish Discovery’s of yester year – the Discovery 3 really is a great car to drive!


The car is finished in stunning metallic silver and is in excellent condition all around. We always say that, being a used car, you might find the odd minor stone chip or mark if you specifically look for faults, but the really car is in superb condition all around. Please see the photo’s for yourself – pictures say a thousand words!

As this is the Metropolis LE model it comes with stainless steel side protection tubes, chrome finish mirror caps, privacy glass and 19" alloy wheels – it really is a fantastic looking Discovery 3. On our opinion, this is the best colour – even beating the ever-popular black – as it really does give the cars lines the clean and modern finish.

The car is fitted with the original Land Rover 19” alloys and the condition is extremely good on all four wheels. The tyres also have plenty of tread remaining.

This car is also fitted with factory fitted parking sensors on both the front and the rear to aid parking (very useful as this is a large car), and has electric mirrors.


As is to be expected from the top-of-the-range Discovery 3 model, the Metropolis’ interior is sheer luxury and finished to the highest standard.

The seats (and interior) are finished in stunning black leather, and all seats are all in very good condition. There are no tears, rips or stains and are exactly as they should be.

The car has electric adjustable seats for both driver AND passenger. The drivers seat memorises up to three different positions, so if you and your partner drive the same car, simply open the door, press the memory seat button and it will automatically adjust the seat, steering wheel, and door mirrors to your own unique settings before you even step into the car!

The car is fitted with touch screen Sat Nav, which also displays the 4x4 power distribution information, and also has a 6 CD changer built into the dash. The car has also been retro-fitted with an excellent Nokia Blue Tooth system for hands free calls.

The car also has the full Alpine roof, which consists of an electric sunroof in the front, and an addition two sunroofs in the rear for passengers 3-5 and 6 & 7 respectively.

In the rear, there is a 10” screen which folds down from the ceiling, and is also a DVD player so the rear passengers can watch movies or cartoons, complete with excellent Harmon Kardon 7.1 surround sound system! And if they get bored of that there are 25 games built in – complete with wireless joypad!
