This Lego Honda Civic Type R Took More than 1,300 Hours to Build

Commissioned by Honda Australia

The same group that brought us a special Honda Civic Type R with gold bodywork is now showing off a life-size Lego version of the sports car. Honda Australia has commissioned this beauty, which took more than 1,300 hours to build.

Led by Lego-certified professional Ryan McNaught, a team of nine assembled each brick by hand. All in all, more than 320,000 Legos were used. Honda says the most difficult parts to assemble were the delicate windshield wipers, and the rear spoiler that needed some structure to stay up. Underneath, there is a steel frame supporting the structure of the Legos.

In this video, you'll notice the special Civic Type R includes lighting elements. An iPad turns on the headlights, daytime running lights, hazard lights, fog lights, and brake lights.

As impressive as this creation is, we have seen other life-size Lego cars that are just as stunning, or even more so. This sizzling McLaren Senna is made of 467,854 Lego bricks, and this Bugatti Chiron is actually drivable. Yep, it can accelerate to just over 12 mph.

The Lego Honda Civic Type R celebrates the automaker's support of the show Lego Masters, set to launch in Australia later this week. Meanwhile, the model will make appearances across Australia in the coming months.

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
