  • ‘Super Awesome Micro Project’ can hit 18mph using air power
  • The project cost £11,200 and used 500,000 pieces of Lego
  • It was created by an entrepreneur and a young ‘technology genius’

An Australian entrepreuner and a tech ‘genius’ have constructed a car from Lego – and it can actually be driven on the road.

The bright yellow hot rod, snappily titled the ‘Super Awesome Micro Project’, was built using 500,000 pieces of Lego. Even the air-powered engine is made from standard Lego pieces and utilises four orbital engines and a total of 256 pistons.

It can reach a top speed of 12-18mph, although the creators – Melbourne entrepreneur and marketeer Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida, a 20-year-old self-taught ‘technology genius’ from Romania – do admit they were ‘scared of a Lego explosion so we drove it slowly’.

Mr Sammartino says the car is a world-first and is ‘proof-of-concept of environmentally-friendly equipment’.

He added: ‘What really matters in the world now isn’t so much the new technology. It’s people having access to the technology. It’s about people using their imagination to put things together in ways that people haven’t thought of before. That’s where the real power is.’
