Lego delights young and old. A Swede has been working on a Volvo V70 for almost three years. With great attention to detail.
Lego is no longer just a toy for children. Adults also enjoy the building blocks from Denmark. On the TV channel RTL, there is even a format in which participants have to create creative buildings. A man from Sweden even uses the Lego bricks to recreate a Volvo V70 on a scale of 1:1.
David Gustafsson from the brick dealer BrickScale AB has been tinkering with the station wagon for about three years now. For the project, he assembles over 400,000 building blocks. He shares his progress on the social networks TikTok and Instagram – and the result is impressive.
Swede builds Volvo V70 Lego: "I'm going to have so much fun with it"
In the meantime, the Volvo V70 made of Lego bricks is almost finished. Only the passenger side and the roof still need a few hours of work. The door and windows are not quite finished here. The interior with the self-made steering wheel, the driver's side and also the elaborately designed one has now been completed by Gustafsson. And all this with great attention to detail.

And best of all, the Lego Volvo even drives. The replica V70 is controlled with the help of a small remote control. Theoretically, the Swede could even take a seat behind the wheel, because there is also a seat in the interior. It's no wonder that the winner of the Swedish version of Lego Masters is very proud. "I'm going to have so much fun with it. Where are we going?" he writes under the 19-second video on TikTok.

And the other users of the social media platform are also enthusiastic about the Volvo V70 made from the Lego bricks. Almost three million people have now seen the clip. More than 1,665,300 people (as of September 21, 14:10 p.m.) have left a heart and over 1,200 have commented on it:

But Gustafsson is not the only one who builds a car out of Lego bricks. At Legoland California, visitors can marvel at a 1:1 replica of a Ferrari F40. And the company from Billund has also had the Ford F-150 Lightning rebuilt with the building blocks.
