2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport Debuts In Die-Cast Form Before Official Unveiling
When shopping for your child (inner or otherwise) in the toy aisle to add a new vehicle to their collection, you might just stumble upon the new Land Rover Discovery Sport in 1:43 scale only a few days before its official global debut.
Though thought to have been discovered online at a Land Rover collectibles shop in the United Kingdom, patient zero for the image is likely from a catalog of wares sold by Swiss die-cast shop Car-issmo. The models themselves are by Chinese die-cast and resin model manufacturer Premium X Collectables, though they have yet to appear on the manufacturer’s site or in its own shop as of this writing.
Similar instances of a new vehicle debuting in die-cast form prior to the official unveiling have occured before, including the 2013 Dodge Viper and the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette.
The Discovery Sport is the replacement for the outgoing LR2, and is set to arrive in early 2015 with a base price of $50,000. Its official unveiling will take place September 2.
