Life-size replica of Lego Batmobile is a soapbox racer's fantasy made real

Homage to Lego and The Dark Knight is truly ingenious

The Redbull Soapbox Race is a novelty event that pits teams building their own soapbox cars against each other. One team worth watching is You've Gotham Be Kidding Me for their cool reproduction of a Lego Batmobile.

Built out of currogated cardboard and a welded metal frame, the life-size replica is a pretty accurate rendition of the Lego 6864 model - Batmobile and the Two-Face Chase.

To match the car, the team even fashioned Lego costumes which are spot-on renditions of Batman, Robin, The Joker and The Penguin. Be sure to check out the other teams and their creative soapbox inventions though we're betting Lego fans will be rooting for Team Gotham.
