It took six weeks to build it.

Certified model designer Lego René Hoffmeister and his partner Pascal Lenhard assembled from the designer a full-size replica of the Volkswagen T2 van. The mass of the model was 700 kilograms, and it took six weeks to build it. Car shown at the tourist exhibition in Munich.

Plastic copy of Volkswagen has a length of five meters. Its width is 1.9, and its height is exactly two meters. For the construction of the replica, 400 thousand Lego cubes were used, of which 20 thousand were for glasses. The van is equipped with a lifting roof and a functioning sliding door. The interior of the cabin is also made of Lego.

Hoffmeister and Lenhard managed to beat Chevrolet’s record for the number of parts used. To make a model of the Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss pickup, eighteen specialists from the Lego brand store in Enfield, Connecticut, needed 334,544 dice and 2,000 hours. The Lego-copies of Silverado work lights, and on the body are applied graphic elements, like a real car.

In late August last year, Lego built a full-size copy of the Bugatti Chiron hypercar with luminous headlights, a moving spoiler and a running engine. The construction of the model took more than a million parts of the Lego Technic series.
