Range Rover Marks Its 45th Anniversary With Paper Bridge Stunt And It’s Incredible

It’s Range Rover’s 45th anniversary so how best to celebrate?

Something sapphire, perhaps?

Not if you’re designer and artist Steve Messam, oh no. He was somewhat more ambitious – and went for a five-metre-long bridge made entirely of paper for a Range Rover to drive over.

That’s right, there wasn’t a nut, bolt, screw or ounce of glue as part of the construction.

Amazing.

The self-supporting structure, which took three days to build, was hand-made in China’s water city Suzhou – also known as ‘the Venice of the East’ and renowned for its beautiful bridges. Let’s not forget that China invented paper, too. The perfect combination for such a venture.

Chris Zhou was the driver, with the scarily impressive stunt taking place ahead of the Guangzhou Motor Show.

See Messam and Zhou talk about it below, as well as the bridge taking shape and the Range Rover carefully making its away across:

An incredible achievement, guys. We just can’t figure out why you drove it over at night…
