The parade consisted of 632 Land Rover and Range Rover vehicles, over 80% of which were Land Rover Defenders.

Jaguar Land Rover Deutschland attempted the record, with the help of volunteers, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the original Land Rover's unveiling, which took place on 30 April 1948.

Participants in the parade were volunteers and Land Rover or Range Rover owners who travelled from from far and wide to take part.

Two keen participants drove their Land Rover Defenders all the way from Siberia to take part in the parade - an epic eight-day journey!

The record was attempted during Abenteuer Allrad, the world's largest cross-country vehicle exhibition, which is held annually in Bad Kissingen.

For the attempt, the vehicles followed a 7.4 km (4.6 mile) track which was located on a large area of farmland near the Abenteuer Allrad event venue.

There a variety of Land Rover and Range Rover models within the parade, with the vehicles varying in age.

The vehicles had to stay a maximum of two cars' length away from the vehicle in front in order for their participation to qualify as a valid attempt. 

Any gaps that were longer than the length of two cars meant the car following was disqualified from the total number. 

The vehicles had one practice run before the official record attempt, which lasted just under one hour.

Stewards supervised the event and were spaced out at 1km intervals along the 7.4km track, looking for any large gaps in the circuit.

Guinness World Records' adjudicator, Sofia Greenacre, along with two witnesses, counted and verified the number of vehicles taking part.

Once the record was confirmed, Sofia took to the stage to award Jaguar Land Rover Deutschland their Guinness World Records certificate, and to confirm that all the participants were now Officially Amazing™!
