Lego Makes A Life-Size 1964 Ford Mustang Out Of Its Bricks, V8 Roar Included

Lego is mostly known for targeting children, but it also has a division dedicated to adults, which is behind some of the most impressive projects made using the small plastic bricks.

Their latest creation brings us face to face with a 1964 Ford Mustang, created at a 1:1 scale and unveiled at MCA’s 40th Anniversary celebration at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, last month, according to Jalopnik. The replica uses an aluminum chassis, which tips the scales at 752 pounds (341 kg), on top of which 960 pounds (435 kg) of Lego bricks have been added.

The classic pony car has been built at the company’s headquarters in Enfield, Connecticut, and those responsible for putting it together have paid attention to every detail, including the working headlights and taillights, special badges, wheels and windshield wipers. Moreover, it also features a virtual horn, under the hood, and a speaker that plays the sound of a real Mustang V8 engine.

Following its presentation at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the huge toy has been taken on a tour, before ending up at Legoland, in Florida, where it replaced a life-size Lego Ford Explorer.
