To celebrate the success of the Discovery, as the millionth one sets off on an expedition to Beijing, and demonstrate Land Rover's continuous achievements in all-terrain capability, vehicles from Land Rover's heritage fleet were available for special drives on the shores of Lake Geneva during the Geneva motor show. Heritage models from the past 23 years of production, including the first Discovery off the production line in 1989 and a Series I Land Rover from 1957 were on hand.
Notable among these was the fully amphibious Discovery converted by Land Rover's Special Vehicles Department as a promotional machine for Cowes Week in 1990. The recently restored amphibious Discovery literally created a splash as it was driven into Lake Geneva where it motored about to demonstrate the brand's go-anywhere capability.
