Land Rover have brought the Disco bang up to date. Unfortunately the site doesn't give any prices or perfomance

New Disco (https://136.8.154.52/)

The Range Stormer is worth a look, especially if it gets beyond being a concept.

What do you guys think?

Hello Catfood,
and I thought this post was going to refer to the Disco Volante, how disappointing to find it refers to a truck.

The new disco was a bit underwhelming. I kinda liked the way the last generation set itself apart from its big brother, but this one just looks like a shrunk down version. Speaking of not being its own, the interior looks lifted straight out of the F150.

The stormer was alright, it is interesting to see so many of the SUVs starting to admit they are just glorified station wagons in the design trends.

Didn't Bugatti refer to Bentleys as high performance trucks. So whats wrong with a good truck? images/icons/wink.gif

Hello Steve,
he most certainly did, well it has been quoted so often it must be true!.
I didn't say there was anything wrong with a truck, just that they are boring and the Disco Volante is not.
just did a quick search and this came up:-

Bugatti called Bentley trucks and he built the royale which from all accounts I have ever heard is more like driving a truck than a car. images/icons/rolleyes.gif

Steve,

I much prefer the older land rover over the newer ones I liked it when design was subject to function. Also I agree about the disco volante very cool car, and I found this good pic. https://212.221.184.67/Layout/wac1899/Berichte_Goodwood/Bilder_Goodwood_2001/Goodwood2001_1/gw2001_F107g.jpeg
