The Model Shop team at LEGOLAND California had a little fun today at General Manager Peter Ronchetti's expense ...the team replaced the GM's Volvo XC60 with a life-sized LEGO XC90 made of 201,076 LEGO bricks.
The model was built in 2004 and weighs 2,934 pounds. Imagine his surprise when he tried to leave for lunch!

This prank creates back pressure on the engine which makes it lose power
temporarily. Then an explosion gives the illusion of even worse problems.
NOTE: Do not perform this prank. It could lead to bodily injury or damage
to an engine.

place out on the roads. By analyzing these and then testing new safety
technology in the crash-test laboratory, we can improve the safety level in
our cars so that they become even safer in real-life traffic conditions,"
says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo.
When the new safety center was inaugurated by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf
in early 2000, it was one of the most advanced in the car industry - a
position it has retained over the years thanks to the continuous
implementation of new equipment and new test methods.
The latest technology infusion is in the form of a set of digital
high-speed cameras that can take 200,000 frames per second.
