Land Rover Discovery Sport Prototype At Large In NYC

A reader spotted this camo'ed SUV in Tribeca, NYC that looks exactly like the mule we found in March which we now know was the new little Land Rover; the Discovery Sport. City testing isn't as sexy as a jungle crossing, but it's undoubtedly more appropriate. Neighborhoods like this are the modern Land Rover's native habitat after all.

The vehicle is still wearing British license plates under a New Jersey manufacturer's tag (used when a car is still owned by the automaker), which makes me think it's heading back to England soon.

We know the Discovery Sport is slated for sale in 2015, but we'll see the finished product a lot sooner of course. Has anyone else spotted this mule roaming around?
