Chevrolet Creates Life-Size Lego Replica Of The Silverado Team / Posted On - December 28th 2022

Over 300,000 Lego pieces and 2,000 hours of time is what Chevrolet spent on its latest life-size Silverado pick-up truck. After creating a life-size Batmobile in 2017 and it has continued its partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures and Lego movie, the American automaker did not seem to be a big fan of Lego replicas until recently.
The 2019 Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss stands tall with the exact dimensions of the real flagship pickup truck. The 'new' Silverado is about 1828mm high, 6096mm long and 2438mm wide.
A team of specially-trained Lego Master Builders took over 2,000 hours to hand-select and put each of the 334,544 Lego pieces into place. The most common piece used in the car is the 2x8 stud brick and the car weighs close to 1500kg. The project was designed and assembled in Lego Group's Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut.
Astonishingly, the life-size car has working lights and graphic details too. However, unlike the Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron, the Lego Silverado is not driveable.
The Bugatti Chiron, however, is a shocker. Not least because it is a 1:1 scale model, but it can also seat a driver and be driven around. Yes, the lifesize toy Bugatti Chiron contains a total of 2,304 tiny electric motors that together generate 5.3hp and an impressive 92Nm. It clocked 20kph as its peak speed tested around the Ehra Lessien racetrack in Germany, where the real Chiron was first tested.
LEGO assembled the Chiron out of a million bricks. This is a fact: 1,000,000 bricks, which includes 4,000 Technic wheels. It took 13,000 man hours to build this car which weighs 1,500kg. “When I first saw the Lego Chiron, I was immediately impressed by the accuracy of the model and the minute attention to detail,” said its test driver Andy Wallace, who has multiple wins of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Daytona under his belt. “Driving the LEGO Chiron was a great experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed. All those years ago I could never have imagined that one day I would actually drive a Lego car!”
