Watch This Air-Powered Lego Car Drive on an Open Road

This full-size car is made almost entirely from plastic bricks.

A 20-year-old genius from Romania and a Lego enthusiast from Melbourne have teamed up to create this fantastic full-size Lego car powered by a small bottle of compressed air.

In the clip below, watch it cruise down the road under its own power.

With the help of 40 patrons who donated over $22,000, the team collected more than 500,000 Lego pieces and assembled them to build a working car. Assembled in 2013, it took 20 months to complete. It comes complete with doors, seats, a steering wheel, and a 256-cylinder radial engine reaching up to 20 miles per hour.

We wonder what the insurance policy looks like on this thing.
