Custom-built environmentally friendly cruising.

Someone has constructed a life-size Lego car, and it works.

According to YouTube videos shared on Mental Floss, “a teenage genius from Romania” named Raul Oaida constructed the car in collaboration with Australian marketer Steve Sammartino.

The car is comprised of more than 500,000 Lego pieces and is based on a hot rod design.

The dials and wheels/tyres aren’t made of Lego, but almost everything else, including the engine, which appears to be powered by compressed air.

The Lego hot rod reportedly has a top speed of 30km/h, powered by four orbital engines with a total piston count of 256.
