2012 Ford Explorer EcoBoost: LEGOLAND Edition

To promote the new Ford Driving School at LEGOLAND Florida, Ford and Lego have come together to make this: A full-size Ford Explorer made of 380,000 LEGO bricks. The project took 22 designers 2,500 hours and weighs in at 2,654 pounds. That weight includes the 768-pound aluminum interior base.

LEGOLAND Florida opens October 15 and will feature two Ford-based driving schools: The Ford Junior Driving School for 3-5 year olds and the Ford Driving School for those aged 6-12. The "school" involves a video with driving instruction -- like which pedal does what (something some adults could re-learn) -- followed by seat time in some 3 mph electric cars on a heavily curbed track. I would have loved that at 6.

Check out the rear shot and a time-lapse video of the project after the jump.
