Life-Size LEGO replica of the "1964½" Ford Mustang V8 Coupe
BrickPony, a life-size LEGO® replica of the "1964½" Ford Mustang V8 coupe, will go on permanent display outside the Ford Driving School attraction at LEGOLAND® Florida Resort in Winter Haven, Fla.
Made out of 194,900 LEGO and DUPLO® bricks, the giant model took approximately 1,200 hours to assemble by a team of veteran Master Builders at LEGO Systems, Inc., in Enfield, Conn.
BrickPony measures more than 15 feet long, nearly 6 feet wide and more than 4 feet tall. It weighs 1,712 pounds, of which 960 pounds are LEGO bricks and 752 pounds is its aluminum chassis.
A few surprises were added under its hood, including a virtual horn and the sounds of a real Mustang engine — a first for a life-size LEGO vehicle — plus working headlights and taillights.
