Feast your eyes on this life-sized Lego Honda Civic Type R

April 24, 2019

Lego, which is arguably one of the world’s favorite toys, has been teaming up with various carmakers to come up with life-size replicas of their various models. The latest among these is Honda, which gave a team of nine master builders the go signal to build its Civic Type R.

Using some 320,000 Lego bricks, the team put together the life-like masterpiece over a span of roughly 1,300 hours. What’s more amazing is that they used regular Lego bricks as opposed to employing custom ones. This is a feat considering that some of the styling details of the Type R are rather unconventional. For them, the harder ones to piece together are the wipers and the rear spoiler.

Yet they managed to pull it off. The headlamps and taillights are even fully functioning units. Moreover, the replica weighs in at about 1,300kg—which is pretty much near to the actual car’s  And yes, even the brakes with the Brembo lettering were executed to a T.

Honda will showcase the Lego Civic Type R in Australia over the next few months.
