Easily one of the greatest inventions in history, cars are still a modern day miracle. Thanks to these machines we get from A to Z and everywhere in between with ease and style. This week we are featuring just a few of these amazing machines built in bricks.
Our first featured car is by far the uniquest of them all. This cool creation is an actual sized functioning vehicle!
Air Powered Lego Car
Max Speed: 18mph
Piece Count: 500,000 bricks
Fun Fact: This air powered beast was funded by over 40 individuals and companies. Although it doesn't go fast (purposefully designed that way to prevent busted bricks) this car is truly an engineering marvel.
The rest of the cars on our list aren't quite as big, but they are still just as stunning.
