Jamie Oliver has teamed up with Jaguar Land Rover’s crack Special Vehicle Operations division to create a kitchen in a Land Rover Discovery – one that includes a slow cooker, barbecue, ice cream maker and, of course, an olive oil dispenser.
The attention to detail is brilliant: there’s a rotisserie driven by the Discovery’s off-road power take off, a herb garden in the rear windows, the slow cooker sits alongside the engine and a table folds out the rear.
The engineers have even installed butter churners in the wheels.
Apparently, Oliver is a big Land Rover fan, and wanted the firm to “create the ultimate kitchen on wheels… what they’ve done has blown my mind”.
In the left rear window, there’s an 11-pot spice rack, Land Rover’s turned two indicator stalks into olive oil and balsamic vinegar dispensers, a gear selector has become a salt and pepper grinder and there’s a jam store in the centre console.
Our favourite touch is the toaster in the centre console.
Apparently, the motto of the JLR SVO team is to make the impossible happen, but head of its bespoke division David Fairbairn admitted “we never imagined we would be asked to produce wheels that churn butter.
“It’s been great fun working alongside Jamie… he really wanted to push the boundaries of what was possible with this versatile vehicle and the team fully embraced the challenge.”
