Discover series 2During the late 1990s, the Discovery was redesigned as 'Project Tempest'. This new Discovery was launched in 1999 as the "Discovery Series II", a name carefully chosen to invoke the history of the original Land Rover Series 11 vehicles. The Series II looked very similar in appearance to its predecessors, but included a variety of new features. The Freelander's Hill Descent Control (HDC) was fitted as standard, and new options included Active Cornering Enhancement and rear Self-Levelling Suspension.
