A team of eight model-makers handcrafted the sculpture by over a two week period to mark the UK launch of the new Chevrolet Orlando seven-seat MPV.

Research by the car company provided the inspiration for the world's biggest Play-Doh sculpture. The modeling clay topped a poll of the most-loved toy from yesteryear.
