David's Volvo made of 380,000 Lego blocks has been on display

The former winner of Lego Master on Swedish TV4 has built himself a Volvo V70 from Lego – now it has been looked over by a visionary.

David Johansson, who has previously won the Swedish version of Lego Master, has spent four years and 380,000 Lego blocks building himself a Volvo V70.

And now the Volvo, which costs David a good one million Swedish kroner, has been produced for viewing in a Swedish viewing hall.

– It's probably not the most difficult car I've inspected, but it can be the most uncomfortable, says inspector Jonathan Österberg, referring to the rock-hard seats.

This appears from a press release .

The seats are – like the rest of the car – made of Lego blocks. Unfortunately, the big Volvo could not roll out of the viewing hall as 'approved'. What is missing is, among other things, brakes too.

The car, which can drive well enough, does not have a higher top speed than 5 kilometers per hour either. But now at least it's been tested – the sight thing.

Although it is probably the first time that a full-size Lego car rolls through an exhibition hall, it is certainly not the first time that an awful lot of these kinds of bricks are used on a car in 1:1 scale.

At Lego in California, which incidentally is the first Legoland park to open outside of Europe, for example, 1,800 hours have been spent just designing a Ferrari F40. The car is built in almost as many blocks from Billund as David Johansson's Volvo. Read more here .
