Toyota Lego model – level 3
In the United Arab Emirates, a Toyota dealership commissioned a gigantic and incredibly real-looking Lego version of Toyota´s famous Land Cruiser SUV.
People built the model from 440,000 pieces, and it took the team of 12 people 2,688 hours to create. It has the same dimensions as the real car, and it weighs over 2,000 kilograms, which is not far from the real Land Cruiser´s 2,500 kilograms. Everything including the windows, tires, and little Toyota logos are found throughout the car and are made from Lego bricks. The headlights and taillights are even illuminated from an inside light.
The Land Cruiser follows in the fine tradition of other life-size Lego cars, and the model is on display next to the real thing in a Dubai Mall until December 15.
Difficult words: dealership (a business that has permission to sell products for a particular company), commission (to order or allow the production of something), illuminate (to make something visible or bright by shining light on it).
