Chevy unveils life-sized Lego Batmobile made from 340,000 bricks
Chevrolet is not a name you’d generally associate with Legos. But the automotive giant has done the unthinkable. In collaboration with Lego Masters, Chevrolet has debuted a surprising new life-size Lego Batmobile modeled after the Batman’s Speedwagon from The Lego Batman Movie. The Lego Batmobile measures 17-foot long and is made from over 340,000 Lego bricks. The Batmobile weighs over 1,695 pounds with the four tires tipping the scale at 100 pounds each.
The Batmobile was designed in about 222 hours, and it took the Lego Master team good 1,833 hours to assemble the life-size Bat car. The Batmobile looks intimidating, and it is scheduled to be readied in 12 different shades of black.
Though, it’s unlikely that the Lego Batmobile will ever see light of day, but it has been displayed with a host of fictitious specs at the Detroit Auto Show. These include rocket fuel engine, bulletproofed cockpit glass, armored side panels, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, and integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
If you can’t be at Detroit Auto Show to see the Lego Batmobile, no worries. Lego Batmobile will be on the big screen when The Lego Batman Movie hits theaters on 10 February.
