How It’s Made: This Fantastic Life-Size 2019 Chevy Silverado Constructed From 334,544 Bricks
Last year, a beautiful Bugatti Chiron was constructed with over 1 million Lego Technic parts, 2,304 Lego motors from 339 types of Lego Technic elements, and 4,032 gear wheels. The 3,300-pound Chiron that has a top speed of 12 mph and took more than 13,000 work hours to create. Now there is an awesome life-sized 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trailboss.
The six-foot-tall, 20-foot-long, and eight-foot-wide Lego pickup truck took 334,544 plastic bricks and weighs 3,307 pounds (Only 1,100 pounds lighter than the V8 Silverado 1500). Chevy enlisted the help of 18 Master Builders from LEGO Group’s Model Shop in Connecticut as well as students from Oxford Community School and Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary to make this toy Silverado. The impressive real-size replica took over 2,000 hours to complete.
Unfortunately, unlike the Lego Bugatti Chiron, this full-scale Lego Silverado does not have an engine. On the bright side, it emits zero emissions. But it does have working headlights. The Lego 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trailboss was presented by Chevrolet at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show to get people excited about the upcoming release of the most technologically advanced and strongest Silverado ever and to promote The Lego Movie 2, which rolls into theaters on February 8th. The important question is when do we get to crash test this thing?
