We’ve seen a life-size Lego Bugatti, but now Chevy has tasked students from Oxford Community School and Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary to create a Lego rendition of its 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trailboss.
Once the 18 students assembled, they intricately pieced together 334,544 Lego pieces and spent over 2,000 hours on assembling the masterpiece. The truck weighs 3,307 pounds and was developed at the Lego Group’s Model Shop in Connecticut.
Unlike the Bugatti that could slowly drive from Point A to Point B, the Chevy truck won’t be hauling anything heavy or driving on the open freeway. Although the lights will turn on, there’s no way to get this Lego beast’s motors running.
Chevy is tying the project into the release of The Lego Movie 2, where a miniature size Silverado will appear.
Right now, the Chevy truck is meant for admiring and recognizing the accomplishment of a huge engineering task.
