Range Rover drives across a paper bridge to mark its 45th birthday.
The unique freestanding bridge was commissioned in collaboration with British artist Steve Messam and specialist British paper manufacturer James Cropper PLC, to showcase Land Rover’s flagship model, at the 13th China International Automobile Exhibition held in Guangzhou from 20 to 29 November 2015. Paper was then stacked on these supports using a temporary framework to hold them in place. Once complete, this was removed leaving a freestanding 3.4-metre high paper arch spanning five metres.
“Paper structures capable of supporting people have been built before but nothing on this scale has ever been attempted,” said artist and paper bridge designer, Steve Messam. “It’s pushing engineering boundaries, just like the Range Rover, and the ease and composure with which the vehicle negotiated the arch was genuinely breathtaking.”
It's an impressive view, check it out in the video below.
