STARTECH, a member of the BRABUS Group, unveiled its newest outfit- ting options for the Land Rover Discovery 5 at IAA 2017. The lineup ranges from a sporty-yet-elegant body styling kit with on-road design and tailor- made 22-inch wheels and matched tires, to high-quality interior refinements. The front spoiler attaches to the production bumper and includes raised side flaps, while an add-on component for the rear bumper features integrated tailpipe embellishers and fits on vehicles equipped with a trailer hitch. A Union Jack design for the front fenders pays tribute to the British origin of the off-roader, and for the show car at the IAA, STARTECH designers additionally developed a special paint scheme with the hood and roof sporting a high-gloss black finish. It rides on Monostar M wheels and Continental low-profile tires, while exclusive interior accessories range from floor mats and scuff plates with backlit STARTECH logo to aluminum pedals and footrest. Requests for more extensive interior refinement can be fulfilled by the STARTECH upholstery shop, with interiors crafted from fine leather and Alcantara in a virtually endless variety of colors and in any desired upholstery design. Noble wood and carbon trim sets are also available.
