Life-Size LEGO vehicles have been popping up all over the place of late. From a Bugatti that really drives to a McLaren Senna you can sit in, Chevrolet pick-ups to Volkswagen Campers, and even the humble Toyota Camry, every manufacturer seems to want to see their car built in Lego form.
Honda Australia are the latest to give it a go, courtesy of LEGO Professional and previous bloggee Ryan McNaught and his team of nine master builders.
320,000 bricks and 1,300 hours later and Honda’s Civic Type R has been perfectly recreated in LEGO bricks, from the badge on the bonnet to the wild floating rear wing, with even the wheels constructed from standard LEGO pieces.
Ryan’s Honda Civic was commissioned to coincide with the launch of the ‘LEGO Masters’ TV series airing later this month, in which teams of builders will compete in various construction challenges in the hope of winning $100,000, and where Ryan is one of the show’s judges.
The life-size Civic will go on tour around Australia over the coming months, and if you’re a little too far from Aus to see the model in person (basically from anywhere that isn’t Australia) click these words to watch a short video of the car courtesy of Honda Australia.
