LEGO has unveiled a life-size replica of the Ducati Panigale V4 R. The impressive build was created by artist Riccardo Zangelmi, who used 15,000 LEGO Technic elements to complete the 1:1 scale model.

Constructing the Italian superbike took Zangelmi and his team a total of 400 hours (approximately two-and-a-half weeks), as they built it all by hand and didn’t use any glue.

The model is so true-to-life, it includes a gearbox, steering, suspension, and front and rear disc brakes. It also features a stand, an exhaust pipe, windshield, and a dashboard

Ducati Team MotoGP rider Andrea Dovizioso said, “I never imagined I’d have the chance to unveil a bike like this. Almost everyone at some point in their lives has played with LEGO bricks at least once, but seeing up close a replica of the Panigale V4 is something incredible and at a very high level.”
