General Motors has teamed up with LEGO to build a full-size Batmobile to be shown at the first day of the Detroit Auto Show.
After 1,833 hours of hard labor and 344,187 LEGO bricks, a work of art emerged that will make the child in you scream. I know I’m wishing I had one of these when I was a kid—hell I wish I had one right now! Who doesn’t?! It’s too bad Chevy won’t be putting this bad boy into production, but you can “make your own” on the Chevy website.
If you decide to build your own you can choose from one of 13 shades of black. There may not be much of a colour scheme to choose from, but on the upside it comes equipped with a 60.2 litre V-100 engine, putting out a whopping 20,000 horsepower and can apparently tow 120,000 pounds, according to Chevrolet. It also comes with 4G LTE Wi-Fi and Apple Car Play. The MSRP on the car is only $48,000,000.
You’ll have to check out the hilarious commercial recreating the Chevy focus group, featuring animated LEGO Figures to help promote the new LEGO Batman movie, which is in theatres Feb. 10th.
This isn’t the first time LEGO created full size cars. They also created a full-size Ford Explorer in partnership with Ford’s Chicago plant. The car was built out of 380,000 bricks and was on display at Ford’s Florida driving school.
And a LEGO Ferrari F2008 F1 race car was built out of 8,000 bricks, costing $20,000.
And the Triumph Daytona 1200, which is on display at LEGOLAND in Berkshire, England.
Don’t forget about the LEGO BMW X1, which was made by 800 children ranging from 5 to 13 years of age and took 4 days. The car is made of 165,000 LEGO bricks.
Last but not least the Volvo XC60, which was made of 201,706 LEGO bricks. The car can be seen at LEGOLAND California where the staff replaced the actual Volvo the park’s manager drives with the full-size LEGO model…and they caught it all on camera:
So gather up all of those old LEGO bricks, step up your building game and make yourself a full-size replica of your favourite car to impress your family and friends!
