Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS crashed in slow motion

Tiny pieces of Porsche fly in every direction, but the damage only totals a couple of hundred dollars.

Actually, not even that, because it’s Lego, and you can rebuild it and do it all over again.

The world’s favourite little plastic bricks have enabled us to have tiny replicas of our favourite cars, but ADAC (Germany’s automobile club and roadside assist) found out that Lego isn’t great for replicating vehicle safety.

From several different angles, we get to see about 2700 pieces of Lego Porsche try to make it as far from the rest of the car as possible.
