Life-Size Lego Car Powered by Air

We’re not sure how that works, but we love it regardless.

When you build something as cool as a life-sized car made of Lego, the least you can do is give it an appropriately cool name. How about: the Super Awesome Micro Project? That’s what Melbourne entrepreneur Steve Sammartino and self-taught technology genius from Romania Raul Oaida decided to call their amazing project. More than 500,000 Lego pieces went into the build that includes four orbital engines and 256 pistons that is said to run on air.

That’s a highly dubious claim, and we can only assume a compressed air tank and clever gearing is hidden away under all those Danish blocks. Nevertheless, the result is superb and we love the fact the design was based on a hot rod.
