Kids Build Giant BMW X1 out of LEGO

by

Have you ever wanted to make a life-sized LEGO car? Europe seems to be the land of giant LEGO models what with James May’s full scale house and the Giant LEGO Man that washed ashore in the Netherlands, it just seems to happen.

Now it Germany, they’ve made the next life size model — a BMW X2.

As everyone who has played with the famous colored bricks knows, with LEGO, nothing is impossible. Not even a full-size replica of a BMW X1 that was created by 800 children aged between 5 and 13 years old (with a little help from the Bavarian automaker’s staff of course) who visited the BMW Welt in Munich last week. The build of the yellow-colored X1 took four days and approximately 165,000 LEGO bricks to complete.

Although not as smooth looking as the LEGO Volvo XZ90 that was made over in the Enfield, Connecticut Model Shop, it still is really impressive. Especially because the XZ90 was made by Master Model Builders and took 3 months to make.
