A genius teenager from Romania, and a man from Melbourne, Australia, got together to build a life size LEGO car. Yes it runs. But not on gas. It runs on AIR! Watch the video to see the life size LEGO car in action!

500,000+ LEGO pieces went into the car.

Here's pretty much everything you need to know about the car, from YouTube:

The Super Awesome Micro Project: A full sized Lego car, with an engine made from Lego that runs on air.

It is the brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneur and marketing guy Steve Sammartino (twitter @sammartino) and Raul Oaida (twitter @rauloaida), a self-taught teenage technology genius from Romania who Steve met on the internet.

Steve crowd funded it via twitter with a single tweet:https://twitter.com/sammartino/status...
