We might not know what the production BMW i8 is going to look like but the German automaker is clearly proud of its concept model.

At this year’s LEGO Kids Fest in Munich, the BMW Group teamed up with LEGO to build a life-sized replica of the BMW i8 Concept vehicle. The upcoming hybrid sports car will undoubtedly be one of BMW’s hottest featuring a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor, giving it the capability of pushing out 400 hp with both systems working.

The i8′s slick design doesn’t translate well in LEGO form but as in past years, the company was a key sponsor for the event.
