Land Rovers a great for the lot of things. Off-roading. Long drives. And towing. One thing Landies aren’t known for is stage rallying.

Yet, this old Discovery seems to be doing the pretty good job at it.

This short clip, shows this Land Rover Discovery attacking the uphill 180-degree right-hander, getting completely sideways under power, quickly skirting out of view.

How, you ask? As it turns out, that Martini-liveried Disco actually has the engine from the BMW M3 under the hood.

We are not sure which M3, but it doesn’t sound like the V8 from the E90 or a four cylinder from the E30. Our guess is it is from an E36 or E46.

Driver Oliver Maxwell, along with the co-driver Matt Neal, and brought the Bavarian-powered SUV to the Somerset Stages rally event in the United Kingdom back in April.

He was able to finish 37th out of 84 entries, beating all sorts of Fiestas, Escorts, and even a couple of Subarus. Not bad for an old British 4×4.
