Meet The First Real Lego Car

A real Lego car has been built by a Romanian technologist and an Australian entrepreneur. It moves by four air-powered engines and 256 pistons which are all built of Lego bricks. It has been built using 500,000 pieces of Lego blocks. It reaches a top speed of about 20km per hour. 

Steve Sammartino, the co-creator Australian entrepreneur has told BBC the story of the car:
I met this crazy Romanian teenager on the web and we came up with the idea but I knew that I couldn't afford to fund it. 

Since he couldn't had fund it himself, he sent out a tweet asking for investors:

The project was funded by fourty Australians and took 18 months and "a lot more" money to be built. It was created in Romania and was shipped to Australia where large parts of the car needed to be built.

We drove it in a suburb of Melbourne. The engine is fragile and the biggest fear was a giant Lego explosion impaling passers-by.

This is pretty crazy and cool at the same time. What's the craziest thing you've done with Lego bricks?
