At the North American International Auto Show this year, Chevrolet unveiled an all-new model. However, it wasn’t anything that you’ll be able to drive. It was a life-size LEGO Batmobile.
The 17-foot long LEGO creation was made to celebrate the release of the new LEGO Batman Movie that comes out this month. It was designed and assembled at the LEGO Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut by LEGO Master Builders (Isn’t that a job you would like to have?).
It took 222 hours to design and 1,833 hours to build the Batmobile. In total, there are 344,187 LEGO bricks in 17 different colors in the model. It measures 204 inches long, 83 inches high, and 111 inches wide and weight a total of 1,695.5 pounds.
To further enhance this partnership with Warner Bros., Chevrolet even created a model page for the Batmobile on its site. From there, you can see that the Batmobile is available in 13 different shades of black, can tow up to 120,000 pounds, and gets 20,000 horsepower from its 60.2-liter V100 engine. And, it only costs $48 million. Okay, it’s not really for sale, but it’s fun to imagine what it would be like to own and drive a real Batmobile.
