Fun fact of the day, Internet: The Lamborghini Urus—all 2,199kg of it—is no longer the heaviest new Lamborghini. This is.

Lego, as all actual children and overgrown kids like us know by now, likes a supercar. It has done models of various McLarens, Porsches, and Ferraris over the years. After it had brick-ified the Bugatti Chiron, someone had the barmy idea of building a life-size version that actually runs.
