Chevrolet is getting cheeky and we love it. A few weeks ago, we found the above video. It’s meant to feel like the familiar “Real People, Not Actors” focus-group style campaigns Chevrolet has been producing lately. In the video, real LEGO® minifigures™ discuss what kind of person would drive the all-new LEGO® Batmobile. The video also includes a LEGO® Batman minifigure™ and is so hysterical to watch, we just keep pressing replay.
This video lead us into a rabbit hole of funny Chevrolet and LEGO® Batmobile related content. We found this webpage on Chevrolet’s site which replicates a “Vehicle Overview” page and it’s full of hilarious content that is so outlandish, we just got lost on the page, reading every single detail about the so-called 20,000 horsepower LEGO® Batmobile.
This is where we could spend hours typing out all of our favorite details, such as the 13 color options for the LEGO® Batmobile (all variations of black, of course), or possibly the 60.2L V100 engine got us laughing the hardest. Regardless, it’s certainly worth your time to head over to Chevrolet.com and check the page out for yourself.
A life-size version of the LEGO® Batmobile was unveiled in the Chevrolet exhibit on opening day of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. The 17-foot long vehicle, unveiled by Chevrolet and students from Detroit’s Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and FIRST LEGO®, was inspired by LEGO® Batman’s Speedwagon featured in “The LEGO® Batman Movie,” now in theaters.
Here are some actual facts about the life-size version of the LEGO® Batmobile:
It’s 83 inches (6.92 feet) high, 204 inches (17 feet) long and 111 inches (9.25 feet) wide.
Total weight is 1,695.5 pounds. Each tire is just over 100 pounds.
The interior frame is made from more than 86 feet of square tube aluminum and weighs 282.5 pounds.
Total number of LEGO® bricks used to build the Batmobile: 344,187
Total number of LEGO® colors used: 17
The LEGO® Batmobile took 222 hours to design and 1,833 hours to build.
The LEGO® Batmobile was designed and assembled in the LEGO® Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut, by LEGO®Master Builders.
Needless to say, we think the life-size LEGO® Batmobile is completely awesome and the accompanying videos and web page are just icing on the cake. It’s all super cool stuff from our favorite manufacturer.
