Watch A Lego Porsche 911 Fail Crash-Testing Quite Badly

There's a good reason why full-size cars aren't made out of Lego. Actually, there are many reasons for that, but for some reason German safety meisters the ADAC decided to crash-test a Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS anyway...

Remind me later

In what has to be the most compellingly watchable and brilliantly simple video we’ve seen in a long time, German safety outfit ADAC has crash-tested a Porsche 911 GT3 RS… made of Lego.

The block-built Lego Technic model, which retails at £260 from the Lego Shop (£176 from Tesco), is slammed into a plate of something solid at 28.5mph and the results are rather dramatic.

This 3m15s video only features a single crash (who’d want to rebuild the car?), filmed from multiple angles to give you a glorious repeat performance of the impact to the perfectly-selected backing of Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz. Who says the Germans don’t have a sense of humour?
