Although not as glamorous as the idolized Camel Trophy, the Land Rover G4 Challenge was a difficult competition for drivers from around the world to prove their offroad driving skills. The challenge was founded in 2003, which covered a trek across the United States, South Africa, and Australia in only 28 days. In total, sixteen nations took part by going head to head for this first ever G4 title. For many this was an opportunity to finally compete in the Camel Trophy, or at least a modern version of it.
Land Rover made 200 limited-edition G4 Edition Discovery models to commemorate the event. They could be painted in Tangiers Orange, Borrego Yellow, Java Black or Zambezi Silver and featured a then all-new, larger diameter roof rail design called the “Aero” Roof Rail system. Full exterior protection included the Discovery front A-frame brush bar and rear lamp guards. On the inside the G4 Edition Discovery featured an all-new “Foundry” trim finish that included seats upholstered in “Black Mogul” technical fabric – a material unique to the Land Rover G4 Edition. An in-dash CD player, black leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as driver and passenger electric seats, completed the G4 interior.
