500,000-Piece LEGO Car Powered By 256 LEGO Pistons

lego-car.jpg

This is the 500,000+ piece LEGO car that was built by 20-year-old Romanian Raul Oaida. Obviously it's not 100% LEGO (chassis, axles, wheels), but it is fueled by compressed air powering 256 LEGO pistons and can allegedly reach speeds up to 20MPH. For reference, that's faster than you can run. So, if there was a LEGO car that was determined to catch and kill you, it could. "Not if I jumped the curb and ran in the grass." I love how I just made you develop a contingency plan for a killer LEGO car. I am filling your mind with so much useful information.

Keep going for a worthwhile video of the car doing its thing.

Thanks to Straightline, barth and Master Splinter, who agree we should all make LEGO go-carts then get out there and demolition derby the shit out of each other.

    Sorry GW but some people can out run this car, 20 mph isn't to hard to run. I myself get over 20 when timing my 40's. 40's as in 40 yards, not the drank.

    would have liked to have been able to hear the car instead of the rubbish backing track but very cool project

  • Elak Swindell

    Pretty awesome concept and execution, but a poorly done video. If it could 20 MPH, then let's see it. You could run faster than it by speed shown in the vid.

    Am I the only one that see's a Frenchie Brian (Family Guy?) painted fire hydrant in the background of the top photo?

    This is easily one of the coolest things I've ever seen made out of Lego.

    Officially the fastest car in Romania.
