LEGO debuted one gigantic Batmobile at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.  In conjunction with the car-maker Chevrolet, a life-sized version of Batman’s latest ride (nicknamed “The Speedwagon”) was unveiled at the car show.

Inspired by Batman’s ride in the upcoming “The LEGO Batman Movie,” the car measures 17 feet long, almost 7 feet tall and nearly 10 feet wide.  It consists of over 344,000 bricks and took a team of LEGO master builders nearly 2000 hours to construct.  The wheels alone are said to weigh nearly 100 pounds each with the whole vehicle weighing in at 1700 pounds.  We’re talking the size of a male polar bear here.

“The LEGO Batman Movie” starring Will Arnett as Batman, Zach Galifianakis as the Joker and Michael Cera as Robin debuts in theaters February 10th.
