ADAC Members Prep LEGO Porsche for destruction

Must Watch: German Auto Group Crash Tests $300 LEGO Porsche

When Porsche teamed up with LEGO to sell a $300 replica of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the fate of the LEGO Porsche was most likely destined to sit on a shelf looking pretty, but when members of the General German Automobile Club (ADAC) got their hands on one, they had a very different picture of the car’s future in mind. Every real car goes through the painful experience of crash testing, so why not do the same for this little LEGO gem?

Using a crash test facility and equipment that full-sized non-LEGO cars face, the ADAC team rigged up the LEGO Porsche for the most realistic crash test experience. At a speed of 46 km/h (29 mp/h), the LEGO car collided into a crash barrier that sent the tiny bricks of plastic off into a new course and the footage that was captured is just outstanding. It is a must-watch!
