Land Rover has revealed the all-new Discovery ahead of sales beginning in spring 2017 – and it is already claiming it is “the best family SUV in the world”.
Launched in a spectacular event attended by BORN, Bear Grylls, Sir Ben Ainslie and Zara Phillips MBE, the now-all-aluminium Discovery is a full-size seven-seat SUV that Land Rover insists has “unbeatable capability and versatility”.

Guinness Record: the largest LEGO structure ever built
The grand launch of the latest iteration of the SUV broke the Guinness World Record for the largest LEGO structure ever built. The event was also participated by long-term Land Rover Discovery owners Bear Grylls, Sir Ben Ainslie and Zara Phillips. The new Discovery was built around a 13-metre high LEGO version of London’s Tower Bridge.

The reveal set was made from 5,805,846 individual LEGO bricks, breaking the previous Guinness World Record by 470,646 pieces. Laid end to end, the bricks would stretch for almost 200 miles, or from Tower Bridge in London to Paris.
Led by the UK’s only LEGO Certified Professional, Duncan Titmarsh, it took five months for expert LEGO Master Builders in the UK to construct the incredible Tower Bridge structure. It was erected in the grounds of Packington Hall, Warwickshire, UK – close to Land Rover’s Solihull plant, where New Discovery will be produced.
