The familiar concept of a driveable life-size LEGO car is nothing new for the company, but this latest iteration introduces a twist to the vehicular formula by eschewing the usual variety of Technic pieces for some standard System bricks.
As revealed in a short clip posted to the LEGO Group’s Twitter account, a total of 477,303 bricks were used to make the model, with the only elements of it not being brick-built including the Toyota emblem, the wheels and parts of the interior.
Previously, both a working LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron and Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 were made to promote LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron and 42115 Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 respectively. It appears that this latter creation though has instead been made to correspond with the smaller Speed Champions 76901 Toyota GR Supra – a set that we have an in-depth review of ready to read.
According to the LEGO Group’s Japanese Twitter account, the creation will be on display next to the road-legal equivalent of the supercar from August 12 until October 11 at LEGOLAND Japan as well as having new characters appear alongside them too.
The event is part of a larger collaboration between the LEGO Group and Toyota which will see some of the resort’s shopping locations overtaken and offering a discount on 76901 Toyota GR Supra and a rare LEGO 30577 Mega Muscle Car polybag.
