I’m Impressed: Life Size Lego Car

carSteve Sammartino and Raul Oaida must have an immense amount of free time on their hands. And a butt-ton of Legos. They have built a functioning, full size, 256 piston car. A car that’s capable of speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. The word is that it could go faster but then you risk the very likely problem of the beast just exploding into its 500,000 individual parts.

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that they haven’t crash tested this yet I’m also going to guess they used some glue or a steel frame or something to hold this thing together. Last time I tried to build something out of Legos and sit on it I ended up in the hospital. As hard as it might be to get two of the flat ones apart sometimes, they still aren’t tough enough to hold me.
