Watch a LEGO Porsche 911 GT3 RS Undergo a Crash Test
Germany’s ADAC decided to crash test the $300 LEGO Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
ADAC is basically Germany’s version of AAA, and the group created a special crash test track for the LEGO Porsche 911 GT3 RS at the ADAC Technikzentrum. According to ADAC, the LEGO creation reached speeds of about 28 mph before crashing into a wall. And the aftermath is pretty much what you would expect from a LEGO car with over 2,700 pieces and it’s pretty glorious to watch.
“The result was impressive and different than expected,” ADAC said. “The chassis of the car had no problems with the high speed, and there were very little damaged stones on impact. It was almost exclusively the click connections between the components.” So not surprisingly, the LEGO car could be rebuilt, which is pretty much the case with any LEGO creation that gets dropped or destroyed.
