Land Rover builds cabin that fits Discovery Sport

Engineers at Land Rover have custom-built a cabin that can be dismantled and transported inside a Discovery Sport compact SUV (pictured) to remote locations.

Two adults can sleep snugly inside the cabin, which has been tested for sub-freezing temperatures. The getaway grotto for the great outdoors is equipped with a solar charger, lights and a kettle - all powered by the Discovery Sport's 12-volt socket.
