Toyota's first performance EV is not what we expected it to be.
Remember Lego's impressively detailed full-size replicas of the Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Sian that look just like the real thing? Now the Supra has been given the Lego treatment to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Japanese sports car.
Currently on display at Legoland in Japan, the full-size Lego Toyota GR Supra is made of 477,303 individual pieces. No wonder it took 5,400 hours for the team to design and build. Considering the obvious design limitations, Lego has done a great job replicating the Toyota GR Supra's distinctive shape.
It even shares the same door handles, wheels, and emblems as the real-life GR Supra. Lego based the replica on the Toyota GR Supra 35th Anniversary Edition, which is sold exclusively in Japan. Limited to just 70 examples, the limited-edition GR Supra is available in five colors.
Lego's full-size replica model is based on the Lightning Yellow version we've seen in press images. Tipping the scales at 4,155 pounds, the Lego replica is even heavier than the real thing, but surprisingly, not by all that much. What makes this replica model even more impressive is that you can actually drive it.
Like Lego's full-size Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Sian, the Supra is actually driveable thanks to an electric motor that powers the wheels. This enables the the Lego car to hit a top speed of 17 mph - impressive for a car made out of Lego bricks. In real life, the Toyota GR Supra has a top speed of 155 mph.
If you want to own your own Lego GR Supra, the full-size scale model sadly isn't for sale. Alternatively, you can buy a Lego Speed Champions version of the Toyota GR Supra to display on your shelf. Since it only includes 299 pieces, it's nowhere near as accurate as the full-scale version, but it will only cost you $19.99. Lego's full-scale Toyota GR Supra will be displayed at Legoland Japan between August 12th and October 11th.
