Someone made a life-size Honda Civic Type R out of Lego

This Lego Honda Civic Type R weighs as much as the real thing

But it's the numbers that make this story truly impressive as it took them over 1300 hours to create the auto from the ground up, using more than 320 000 Lego bricks.

Using CAD drawings as well as an actual auto for reference, the team built the vehicle from the ground up, layer by layer.

The most challenging elements of the build, according to McNaught, were the window wipers thanks to their fragility, while the back spoiler needed additional construction allowing it to "float".

The Lego Type R will be making appearances across Australia in the coming months.

Honda is driving creativity in the series with judge and LEGO® certified professional Ryan "Brickman" McNaught and his team building a life-size LEGO® Honda Civic Type R.

It's not like the Senna or Chiron - it doesn't have an interior and it doesn't roll or drive, because unlike those models, the Civic's wheels are made out of Lego too.

"We are thrilled that our partners have come to play with this first season of LEGO® Masters", said Liana Dubois, Nine's Director of Powered.

The structure of FK8 Honda Civic Type R's life-sized version is based on a steel frame., and all the stock standard pieces are glued together. "The vehicle is shaped with a considerable amount of curved lines, making it a tough but interesting build". An iPad gives the auto "life" by helping turn on the headlights, fog lights, DRLs, brake, hazard lights, and reversing lights.
