Life-Size LEGO Explorer Car to Mark the Entry to Ford Driving School


Using LEGO bricks, Ford was able to create a bright-red version of its Explorer.

The vehicle will be placed at the entry to the Ford Driving School at Legoland Florida in which children aged between 6 and 12 will have the possibility to drive electric cars on small roads at a speed of 3 miles per hour.

It would be interesting to note that the LEGO vehicle was built at the Torrance Avenue assembly factory, located in Chicago, by the same people who made the actual Ford Explorer.

To make the LEGO model, 22 engineers required over 2,500 hours and 380,000 bricks. The car runs on a 768-pound aluminum base and its weight is 2,624 pounds.
