Lego Life-Sized Car

500,000 Lego Bricks

Plenty of people build hot rods, and some with unlikely – and very cool – designs. But the world’s never seen a hot rod quite as unlikely or as cool as this one: built from 500,000 pieces of Lego, life-sized and drivable, powered by 4 orbital engines with 256 pistons running on air, with a top speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h).

The brainchild of an Australian man Steve Sammartino, created with Romanian tech genius Raul Oaida, it’s driveable, but the pair admit it’s not fast. “We were scared of a Lego explosion so we drove it slowly,” they say. And why a hot rod design? “Mainly because hot rods are cool.”

The creators have no solid future plans for the car, although there are rumors it could go to a famed collector in the USA. “We hear Jay Leno wants to buy the car. We are open to offers to display it at shows too.”
