Startech Land Rover Discovery

The Land Rover Discovery continues its success story now in its fourth edition. The exclusive accessories program for it comes from STARTECH, a BRABUS Group company. The tuner of vehicles from the tradition-rich British brand has developed custom options such as a sporty-elegant body kit, custom-tailored 22-inch wheels, a suspension module for the air suspension and attractive interior upgrades such as a state-of-the-art rear-seat entertainment system.

The STARTECH designers have conceived an aerodynamic-enhancement kit for the new Discovery 4 that does more than just add sporty-elegant highlights: the front spoiler attaches to the production bumper. LED daytime running lights integrated into the spoiler contribute significantly to increased active safety. STARTECH also offers state-of-the-art fog lamps designed to replace the standard lamps in the front fascia.

The STARTECH add-on component for the rear bumper continues the styling theme in the rear. The fascia features integrated distinctive exhaust embellishers that are combined with the production exhaust system. An easy-to-remove access door hides the mount of the trailer hitch. The new fascia thus not only lends the rear end a more homogenous appearance, it also keeps out water or dirt that could damage the system.

A striking appearance naturally also requires a generously dimensioned tire/wheel combination. STARTECH equips the Discovery 4 with Monostar IV wheels in size 10Jx22. The allure of these five-spoke wheels lies in their finish that features gray and polished surfaces. The wheels are mounted with tires in size 295/30 R 22.

The STARTECH lowering module for the air suspension of the Land Rover is the perfect match for the high-performance street tires. To make getting in and out of the car as comfortable as possible, the Discovery 4 remains at the production ride height while stationary or while in off-road mode. If the on-road mode is selected in the cockpit the ride height is lowered by some 35 millimeters. As a result the SUV gives off a more dynamic impression while the lower center of gravity translates into even sportier and safer on-road handling.

STARTECH lends the new Land Rover a more individual touch and better functionality in the interior as well. In addition to an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, scuff plates with backlit STARTECH logo and aluminum pedals and footrest STARTECH also offers a custom-tailored rear-seat entertainment system.

The STARTECH electronics specialists developed a roof console from which a 10-inch LCD screen with 16:9 aspect ratio deploys at the push of a button. The screen can display the signal from the integrated DVD player or from optionally available devices such as a digital TV receiver or a game console.

Another STARTECH development is the WLAN on-board hotspot for the Discovery 4 with 20 MBit/s GSM modem for EDGE, HSDPA and HSPA+ protocols. It allows several occupants to go online at any time and to communicate via the internet simultaneously.

Additional requests for interior upgrades can be fulfilled in any desired upholstery design by the STARTECH company upholstery shop which uses only the finest leather and Alcantara.

STARTECH also offers Land Rover owners the option of upgrading their vehicles with wood and carbon-fiber trim custom-tailored to suit individual preferences. The selection of colors and surface finishes is virtually unlimited.
