At the same time, there was no damage to off-road characteristics by designers - on the contrary, this new design is both attractive and “technological” at the same time. Новый Ленд Ровер DiscoveryTo put it in figurative figures of developers, he received a rethought new DNA; this is no longer the bearer of genetic information that has “nourished” Land Rover models for the past twenty seven years.
