A life-size Lego car powered by air

Brilliant.

From the project site:

Super Awesome Micro Project Factoids

  • More than 500,000 LEGO pieces were used.
  • The car engine is made from standard Lego pieces and runs on air!
  • The engine has four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons.
  • Top speed is not very fast, around 20-30km (We were scared of a Lego explosion so we drove it slowly)
  • It was built in Romania and shipped to a secret location in suburban Melbourne.
  • It’s a Hot Rod design, mainly because hot rods are cool.

Just as I was discovering this link, my boys were playing with their pneumatically driven Lego Unimog—which I previously would’ve called giant.
