A recent project presented at the famed Le Mans endurance race has brought together Lego enthusiasts and Ford enthusiasts like never before. That’s right. It’s a replica of the brand-new Ford GT made entirely of Lego bricks!
If the idea of eyeballing such a build seems impossible to you, you are right. A computer model was used. However, the genius behind this build, an official Lego builder named Pascal, did build the wheels without computer assistance.
The Lego Ford GT is made up of between 30,000 and 40,000 pieces. Pascal placed every single Lego by hand. The model weighs somewhere between 75 and 100 pounds. It was quickly decided that a full-size model was out of the question so everyone decided that a 1:3 replica was best.
While Pascal admits that the real Ford GT is exciting, he’s also quite proud of his creation. The hardest part of the build for Lego-building genius? The logos on the car.
