At the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend it would have been easy to spend the whole day milling around the paddocks and classic displays and to have ignored the new car displays, but I’m glad I didn’t because Land Rover had one of the most interesting show stands I’ve seen in years.

The company had splashed the cash and built a very mock production line that showed the Discovery being assembled. What was really fascinating was the fact that the Discovery’s unusual T5 architecture had finally been laid bare.

When the T5-based Disco 3 was launched in 2004, much was made of the car’s substantial 2.5-tonne weight. This was a result of the T5’s belt and braces approach, using both a separate chassis and a structural monocoque body.
