In a stunning video clip, a 2,704 piece Lego Technic Porsche is seen crashing into a wall in slow motion.
Lego Technic released a stunning Porsche 911 GT3 RS set last year for the whopping price of about £200, containing a complex model kit.
Building such a design is not for the faint-hearted, especially since it comes with an-inch thick manual, but the result is a stunning piece of equipment.
You’d think, after constructing such a thing you’d want to keep it safe and sound? German auto safety group ADAC and ct magazine had a different idea.
The two partnered up to create a “fun test” at a crash test facility in Germany.
They sent the 1:8 scale model Porsche hurtling towards a wall going at 28 miles per hour, causing the mother of all Lego crashes. The visual is sure to make many a car model collector sob.
You can watch the event in slow motion below; it’s almost painful to look at.
The toy company worked alongside Porsche to create this masterpiece which contains among its many impressive features, a Lego-ised four-speed version of Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch transmission with rubber-band-tensioned paddle shifters and a drive selector with forward and reverse settings.
We’re not sure all that painstaking design work was intended for such a hilariously sadistic exercise.
