2017 Land Rover Discovery Revealed At Record-Breaking LEGO Bridge
We’ve had the amazing new 2017 Land Rover Discovery on our minds a lot lately, and we’re eager to give the big SUV a good look when it becomes available here at our Land Rover dealership near Naperville, IL. And we’re not the only ones excited about its introduction, as the Land Rover brand revealed the amazing SUV by setting a Guinness World Record for the largest ever structure made of LEGO toy bricks!
Land Rover displayed the new 2017 Land Rover Discovery and its incredible capabilities around a replica of London’s famous Tower Bridge built using 5,805,846 individual LEGO toy bricks. The structure measured 42.6 feet high and was constructed by Duncan Titmarsh, the only LEGO Certified Professional in the UK. Titmarsh spent five months constructing the Tower Bridge replica near Packington Hall in Warwickshire, near Solihull and the production facility where the new Land Rover Discovery will be built.
As part of the reveal, adventurer and TV star Bear Grylls rappelled from the top of the LEGO Tower Bridge and through a drawbridge to land near the new Land Rover Discovery. “I have developed a powerful bond with Land Rover vehicles over the years and to me, they embody that spirit of adventure coupled with a rugged reliability that also serves the needs of a young family,” said Grylls. “The Land Rover Discovery is invaluable on expeditions, whether filming in deserts, jungles or mountains, yet it’s still the perfect vehicle for the family’s everyday use.”
Sir Ben Ainslie showed off the new Land Rover Discovery SUV’s prowess as well, fording 35 inches of water under the LEGO Tower Bridge. The Olympic gold medal-winning sailor drove the new Land Rover Discovery while towing a LEGO replica of the Land Rover BAR Team sailboat, which is set to participate in the America’s Cup race next year.
