Jamie Oliver’s tricked-out Land Rover Discovery is a kitchen-on-wheels

Article by Christian A., on October 24, 2017

Remember the Range Rover Holland & Holland that comes with a set of guns in the back just like what you see in movies? This time, Land Rover is here to surprise us again with something more functional -- a built-in kitchen. No other than famous chef Jamie Oliver owns this unit. The mobile kitchen was introduced earlier this month and has already been used for two promotional videos. It was JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division that made this possible, and it has now given the already practical car even more features. In fact, it is now the perfect family car.

Unlike any other Land Rover Discovery out there, this particular one has functions you would have never thought of - from the front grille that acts like a pasta cutter, the butter churning front wheels, to the ice cream maker in the rear wheels. Other features include a spice rack and herb garden at the rear pillars, and of course, a full-on kitchen in the back complete will utensils and ingredients to cook a steak, anytime, anywhere you want. In the video, Jamie Oliver demonstrates the functionality of his personalized Discovery.

All the kitchen equipment are not just limited on the outside, passengers can make themselves sandwiches while in the vehicle with the functional toaster in the center console, and a compartment for three types of jam. There are also USB ports where one could attach a portable vacuum if things get a little messy.

What else is on the menu? Well, you’re not just limited to sandwiches, pasta, and steak. Oliver shows us that the Discovery’s front grille also features a rotisserie with the help of the SUV’s high powered engine. Furthermore, Jaime Oliver cooks his favourite baked beans recipe with a slow cooker pot in the engine bay.

It is available with several engine options such as a 3.0 liter V6 engine, or petrol powered versions of 2.0 liter four cylinder or a 3.0 liter V6. These engines range from 254 horsepower to an impressive 340 horsepower. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic that brings power to all four wheels. In terms of fuel efficiency, it is rated with 16 mpg city and 21 mpg highway.

This Custom Land Rover Discovery is just like a minimized version of an RV; it serves just as many features that are fitted into certain parts of the Discovery. How cool it that? The seven-seater SUV has frequently been compared to a Swiss army knife with the multitude of functions it has. We do not know yet how much Jamie Oliver spent to customize his ride, but we are pretty confident that it was not cheap.
