See exclusively here the new air powered lego car....

Are you the type of person who likes the do-it-yourself gift for budding designers and architects during the holiday season then it has to be Lego. The small blocks of plastic lego with millions of outcomes and designs have entertained many a child since the early 1950s. Now an ambitious duo have joined together to create a 500,000 pieces, world’s first air-powered Lego roadster.


The Lego roadster's engineering and build dynamics are impressive given the medium Designed by self-taught designer, 20 year-old Raul Oaida of Romania, the Lego roadster is the air-powered Lego roadster is based on a traditional hot rod design. The Lego roadster is air-powered by 256 pistons inside 4 orbital engines no power rat.


The open-aired Lego mobile, designed by 20 year-old Raul Oaida of Romania, is somehow powered by a top-secret amalgam of Lego pieces and pump parts. With a mechanical design arrangement that would make even the most hardcore of automotive engineers drool, the Lego-mobile is driven by four orbital engines, each holding 256 pistons, or 64 per Lego engine block.


 

Not everything on the vehicle is Lego. According to the team, load bearing components, including wheels, tires and steering control mechanisms are of a metallic nature, as are the air pressure gauges on the console. However, items like doors, the steering wheel, seats and even the low profile transparent windscreen all appear to be 100 percent Lego-based.
