Remember the drivable life-sized Bugatti supercar that LEGO built using over a million pieces?
Well, the toy company has returned with another full-sized automobile model that is turning heads at the f.re.e leisure and travel fair in Munich.
Over six weeks, officially-certified LEGO model makers Rene Hoffmeister and Pascal Lenhard used 400,000 LEGO bricks to bring to life this 700kg Volkswagen’s ‘T2’ camper replica, which measures over five meters long, for exhibition at the event.
The van includes a pop-up roof, sitting area, and kitchenette. Its creators even managed to install a sliding door alike the real ‘T2’ that was very challenging to recreate.
Its interior boasts a vibrant green sitting area with orange roof that pays homage to the vehicle’s 1960’s origins. Even the car’s accessories, such as radio and cutlery, were carefully recreated using LEGO bricks.
Earlier this year, artist Dante Dentoni built a LEGO-themed wall with secret rooms for record producer Zedd that quickly captured the internet’s attention for its cool interior design.
