Land Rover has created an SUV containing a fully-functioning kitchen. Why? Because it can.

Jaguar Land Rover's customisation arm may be used to create bullet-proof, diamond-encrusted SUVs for billionaires to show off - but today it unveiled an altogether tastier creation: a Land Rover Discovery containing a fully-functioning kitchen.

The vehicle, designed (of course) for Jamie Oliver in honour of his new series on the Food Channel, includes a toaster in the centre console and a rotisserie with enough room for three chickens driven by the power take-off.

The car, which contains gas hob, a dining table and worktop and a spice rack, has room for kitchen gadgets which the owners of most of London's tiny kitchens can only dream of. Those include butter churners in three of the wheels; a five-litre ice cream maker in the remaining wheel; a living herb garden in the rear window - and even a slow-cooker beside the engine.

The vehicle also has plenty of luggage space (2,500 litres, to be exact), five seats, and (naturally) a flat screen TV (because it wouldn't be a luxury SUV without one).

"I gave Land Rover a massive challenge to create the ultimate kitchen on wheels. I dreamt big and asked for a lot," enthused Oliver.

"I didn’t think they’d actually be able to put a slow-cooker next to the engine and an olive oil dispenser in the boot, but they did." Quite.

David Fairbairn, head of bespoke at Jaguar Land Rover's special vehicle operations arm, added: "As a team, we never imagined we would be asked to produce wheels that churn butter so it has been great fun working alongside Jamie to bring his vision to life."
