Offered exclusively with Jaguar Land Rover's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine, the Discovery SVX packs 518bhp and 461lb/ft of torque and features a series of modifications to set it apart from the standard auto.
Created by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations team based in Coventry, the new Discovery SVX is supercharged to develop 525ps of power with 625Nm of torque - that's twice the pulling power of the 3.0-litre diesel models.
Ground clearance has been boosted and huge tyres fitted alongside a tuned Terrain Response system and a rear-mounted electric winch.
Adventurers with robust bank balances (reckon on a six-figure price) are invited to register their interest on Land Rover's website, with production set to commence next year. It also has improved approach, departure and breakover angles for off-roading, thanks to higher suspension and larger wheels and tyres. Land Rover claims the tyres' extra side-wall height and "more aggressive" tread pattern improve grip on mud and performance on soft surfaces.
Complicated software like Hill Descent Control, Electronic Traction Control (ETC), Adaptive Dynamics, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) and variable ratio Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) all mean even the most basic driver can stay upright.
As well as the improvements to the Terrain Response 2 computerised traction system, the auto is also fitted with hill descent control, electronic traction control, adaptive dynamics, dynamic stability control, all-terrain progress control and variable ratio electric power-assisted steering.
SVX-specific front and rear bumpers with bashplates and recovery eyes layer further visual menace on top of the already moody satin Tectonic Grey paint with Rush Orange accents the latter a neat nod to the G4 Challenge cars.
A couple of new options are available, too, with the "second-generation" head-up display now in full colour and able to project information to help with off-roading as well as getting to your next destination.
As well as the supercharged V8 Land Rover has updated the Discovery's underpinnings and updated its looks with a number of bespoke SVX additions.
To go with its new-found extreme terrain ability the SVX also sports a series of interior and exterior upgrades to differentiate it from your common or garden Discovery.
It's the latest creation to come out of the British maker's Special Vehicle Operations division and the first Land Rover to get the SVX badge.
Other changes to the Discovery range announced at Frankfurt included enhanced digital connectivity with the introduction of 4G Wi-Fi on SE derivatives and above, providing superior connection speeds for up to eight mobile devices on the move. Another option is an air purification system to improve the outside air entering the cabin and passing through the air-con unit.
Fitted with a 525bhp V8 petrol engine and terrain-tackling tech, the new off-roader is the ultimate Land Rover. Each one will be hand-assembled at the SVO Technical Centre.
