The new Discovery is almost half a tonne lighter with the all-aluminium chassis shedding a whopping 480kg. In fact, the bricks used to build the Tower Bridge replica would stretch nearly 200 miles (320 kilometers) if laid end to end - a distance that's equivalent to going from Tower Bridge in London to Paris. "This well-proportioned, sure-footed vehicle will establish new standards for the Discovery family".

The scale model of Tower Bridge, supported two Land Rover Discoveries to drive across and, once the fully articulated bascules were lifted, a Land Rover Discovery drove underneath pulling a LEGO replica of the Land Rover BAR team racing boat.

Jaguar Land Rover stole the limelight at the Paris Motor Show with a world premiere, a world record, a surprise announcement and a motorsport debut.

Until then, we have a set of six videos from Land Rover featuring the new Discovery, which tell its story, the ethos behind its development and demonstrate its abilities in a way words and pictures don't always do. At the event Bear Grylls, Sir Ben Ainslie and Zara Philips, who are long time users of Land Rover, were present.

The bridge which was made by 5,805,846 LEGO bricks got into Guinness World Record for the biggest LEGO brick structure ever made. In addition to that the structure was flanked by two 'Discovery Zones, ' which featured the new SUV along with some flora and fauna.

He said: "People might be used to seeing me abseil into a jungle or inhospitable terrain but what they don't often see is the fleet of Land Rover vehicles carrying crew, cameras, kit and much more besides - that might have travelled hundreds of miles to be there".

Bear Grylls added: "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".

"The new Discovery is the world's most capable and versatile SUV - it's a revolutionary vehicle but very much a Land Rover". "It's a proud moment to be here with Land Rover revealing the New Discovery to the world", said Bear Grylls.

Alongside the spacious and flexible seating layout, the other key to All-New Discovery's superior versatility is Jaguar Land Rover's InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. The seven seater provides a comfortable stance for each passenger. An efficient twin-turbo, 2.0-litre SD4 Ingenium four-cylinder diesel, a twin-turbo 3.0-litre Td6 V6 diesel, and a supercharged 3.0-litre Si6 V6 petrol; which sounds fun. The revolutionary design gives Discovery a dynamic appearance with sophisticated surfaces and precisely engineered details created to resonate with customers on an emotional level.
