Working V8 engine built from Lego (+video)

Lego V8 engine 1

It took four months of free time, seventeen bags full of Lego and a masters degree in mechanical engineering, but someone did it.

What you’re looking at in the photos is a working Lego 32-Valve DOHC V8 engine, and the attention to detail is stunning. Pistons pump, valves open and close, rocker arms rock, the fly-wheel spins there’s even two bundle’o’snakes headers that flow into twin collectors.

The way these things usually work is that this is just the beginning and a Lego Jaguar V-12 will probably pop up soon.

Check out the video of the running Lego engine below.
