Holy Crap! It’s a Drivable LEGO Car! [Video]
When I told my wife I wanted the 3,152-piece LEGO Star Wars Super Star Destroyer for Christmas, she thought I was nuts. I wonder what she’ll say if I ask for the over 500,000 pieces it takes to build the life-sized, fully drivable, yellow and black LEGO hot-rod that was the brain-child of Steve Sammartine and Raul Oaida.
Billed the Super Awesome Micro Project, the LEGO car was built in Romania and shipped to Melbourne Australia. Air powered by four engines with an astonishing 256 pistons and a pair of high-pressure air tanks this thing from my childhood (and adulthood) dreams can potentially hit a max speed of 20 miles-per-hour. I cannot possibly every express how much I want this LEGO car.
I’m not the only one who thinks this thing is incredible. A total of 40 Australians have backed the Super Awesome Micro Project beginning with only a solitary tweet from the builders. Definitely check out the photos and video below.
