As a kid, we all imagined ourselves driving and flying around in our little LEGO creations. Well, paint yourself yellow because now you actually can. This incredible 1:1 scale LEGO Toyota GR Supra is the first drivable life-sized car model powered by an electric engine. Built by the company’s designers, it’s now on display at the LEGOLAND Japan Resort.

In June, LEGO released a 299-piece replica of the iconic Toyota GR Supra as part of its Speed Champions Summer 2021. And this time, they’ve taken it to a whole new level by building an actual vehicle consisting of 477,303 LEGO blocks that weighs over 1600 kilograms. Try fitting that into your backpack, kids…
Although the LEGO replica won’t possess the turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine, its electric motor can reach a top speed of 28 km/h. In addition to the extraordinary LEGO block interior, the car features a real-life steering wheel, tires, driving seat, and car factory logo.
While we may not be able to head over to Japan for a test drive anytime soon, car enthusiasts can still collect and build one of the world’s most iconic high-performance sports cars with the LEGO Speed Champions Toyota GR Supra. It comes packed with realistic details and is perfect for display or high-energy racing action. It can be bought on the LEGO website for AUD$29.99.
