The Toyota dealer for the United Arab Emirates commissioned the construction of a full-sized example of the latest Land Cruiser 300 made of Lego.
The Lego Land Cruiser measures 194.9 inches (495.05 centimeters) long and 74 inches (188 centimeters) tall just like the real thing.
The plastic vehicle weighs 4,519 pounds (2,050 kilograms). For comparison, the actual Land Cruiser with the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 weighs 7,121 pounds (3,230 kilograms).
It took 12 people 2,688 hours to develop the plan and to assemble over 440,000 blocks into the shape of this big full-sized example of the latest Land Cruiser SUV.
The model, which is on display next to the real thing in the Dubai Mall until December 15, is incredibly accurate.
The Land Cruiser sculpture has the exact same dimensions as the actual SUV, stretching 194.9 inches long and 74 inches tall.
The huge project is constructed from more than 440,000 Lego bricks and weighs in at over 4500 pounds, not far off the real Land Cruiser’s 5700-plus-pounds.
The Lego vehicle was pieced together by 12 team members and took 2688 hours to develop and build.
The Lego version is based on the latest generation of Toyota’s venerable off-roader, which unfortunately will not be sold in the United States. Instead, the U.S. market will receive its more luxurious counterpart, the Lexus LX. Both the Land Cruiser and the LX are powered by a gasoline twin-turbo 3.4-liter V-6 with 409 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. The Land Cruiser is also offered with a turbo-diesel 3.3-liter V-6 with 304 hp and 516 pound-feet of torque. Of course, under the hood of the Lego Land Cruiser model you’ll find, well, more Legos.
