Although the new Land Rover Discovery is still brand spanking new, the automaker is having no mercy on its mid-sized off-roader, kitting it out to the hilt and slapping some orange paint on it in preparation for the G4 Challenge next year. Land Rover plans to use all of their models during the event, including a version of the Range Rover Sport, which until now was thought to be an asphalt-only contraption. The adventure competition consists of cycling, mountain climbing, kayaking, and driving, and takes place over the course of a month. The self-imposed cruelty starts in Bangkok, Thailand and ends up in Bolivia. No word yet on how exactly a Land Rover will get across those pesky oceans. Throw it in low range and toss on a snorkel?
