The BMW that’s made entirely out of bricks

Posted January 12, 2011 by in News | 1 comment

A Chinese artist wants £80,000 for a BMW car that handles like a brick… as it’s made out of hundreds of them.

Dai Geng spent more than a year cementing the brick blocks together which he then carved into a model of a sporty BMW Z4, which can exceed speeds of 150mph. Except for the windows, everything is made from brick, even the hinges that allow the door to open and close just like metal ones.

He is hoping the car will be sold for use as a garden ornament and bought by one of the newly rich Chinese who regard BMW as extremely desirable because of the quality and performance.

The brick car, which is 5 metres long, 2.15 metres wide, 1.6 metres high and weighs 6.5 tons, was completed in 2007 and was displayed at different places, such as the 798 Art Zone in Beijing.
