This is really not the first time we have seen a life-size vehicle made entirely of Lego blocks. However, it is rare that we see the manufacture of one of these vehicles in a hurry. This is what Legoland offers us in Florida, the design of their most recent creation, a Ford F-150 Lightning.
Don’t think you can put this “special edition” of a Lego car under the Christmas tree, it’s way too big. Unlike the many miniature cars that are offered, there is only one Ford F-150 Lightning made entirely of Lego blocks in the world. Respecting the 1:1 scale, it took no less than 320,740 small blocks to be able to build it.
Several challenges awaited the designers, weight, in particular. It was necessary to assemble the blocks on a chassis in order to obtain sufficient rigidity to support the weight. On the account, the total mass is 1,692 kilos, which is still quite less than the 2,728 kilos of a base Lightning. It took no less than 1,600 hours to set up the approximately 320,740 small blocks. Interestingly, Lego incorporates LEDs into the optical blocks, the transverse light strip above the grille and the lights for an even more real presentation of the Lightning. There is only one copy, and it is on display at Legoland in Cypress Gardens, Florida.
