If you still can’t get enough of the Civic Type R, head over to Melbourne, Australia to view the life-size Lego Civic Type R, specially built for the ‘LEGO® MASTERS’ show.

The life-sized Lego Civic Type R is created by Lego Certified Professional global expert, Ryan McNaught. This creation used more than 320,000 bricks and took over 1,300 hours with a team of nine.  From scratch, a steel frame supports the structure of bricks, all glued together and is built completely by stock standard pieces, layer by layer.  The car ‘comes to life’ with the help of an iPad which turns on the headlights, DRLs, fog lights, hazard lights, brake and reversing lights.  The team disclosed that the most challenging elements on the car are the window wipers and spoiler.

The impressive build celebrates Honda’s support of the upcoming show LEGO MASTERS, which will see eight pairs of fanatics fight it out in a high intensity building competition. McNaught will judge the show alongside Australian radio and TV personality, Hamish Blake, as host.

The multi award-winning Civic Type R was the ideal choice of the Honda Australia range to build due to its challenging lines which lends themselves to one of the most rewarding driving experiences in the hot hatch segment.  

The Lego Civic Type R will be making appearances across Australia over the coming months.
