Land Rover Discovery 4 – the One Millionth Discovery

Land Rover Discovery 4 – the One Millionth Discovery produced at Solihull. To celebrate the enduring success of the Discovery, we created a unique show stand at Goodwood Festival of Speed which recreated the Solihull production line. The stand evoked the atmosphere within the Solihull manufacturing facility and how a Discovery 4 is put together, complete with overhead lifts and illustrations of how chassis and body are brought together.
