Attached Image German Automobile Club (ADAC) has just released a video of a Lego Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS being crash tested.

Consisting of 2,704 small blocks and equipped with a 3D-printed dummy, the 1:8 scale model of the GT3 RS was set up at ADAC's crash test facility in Landsberg just like any other normal full size crash test. The Lego set, which cost around S$500 or so, was sent to a downsized barrier at 46km/h.


After the test, Johannes Heilmaier, Head of ADAC Technikzentrum's crash system gave the crash results a thumbs up.

"The result was impressive and different than expected. The chassis of the car had no problems with the high speed, and there were very little damaged pieces on impact. It was almost exclusively the joint connections between the components", he said.
