A lego bridge so big that it can hold an entire Land Rover.
Land Rover just impressed everyone with the reveal of the 2017 Discovery, but it didn't just stop with an amazing product. The new Disco has dropped over 1,000 pounds over the previous generation and has several new gas and diesel engines. We also love the new styling that looks much more like a Range Rover. In order to show off how impressive this car is, Land Rover decided to reveal it while simultaneously breaking a really cool world record. The company has built the largest Lego structure in the world. What an awesome feat.
You can watch how the world record was broken in amazing detail. It shows that Land Rover can build impressive vehicles, as well as Lego structures.
The structure itself was a Lego-version of London's Tower Bridge. The model is over 42-feet tall and is capable of holding two new Discovery models on top of it. The bridge took 5,805,846 Lego pieces to build, which breaks the previous record by 470,646. To put over 5 million Lego pieces into perspective, if you laid them all out end-to-end, they would stretch for over 200 miles (or from London to Paris). The project was led by the UK's only Lego Certified Professional, Duncan Titmarsh. The bridge took over five months to build by a team of expert Lego builders. As part of the event, Land Rover had British survival expert Bear Grylls come to the event to show of the Discovery's capabilities.
This awesome bridge tops the list of the largest Lego structures ever built. The 5.8 million piece bridge was bigger than a Star Wars X-Wing Fighter (5.3 m bricks), a Lego house created for James May's Toy Stories (3.3m bricks), a Herobot 9000 A mecha robot (2.8 m bricks), and an Allianz Arena scale replica of the Munich soccer stadium (1.3 m bricks).
