Legos are awesome. First there was the Lego Bikes and now there’s this freaking awesome V8 engine made entirely from Lego. Using a Lego Technic kit, it took about 4-5 months to complete. And it’s a masterpiece! According to barebos, the creator, the ‘engine’ is modeled after a Ford V8 and runs on one geared motor. Unfortunately, the motor has little to no power, so the engine can only rev just a tiny bit. It’s made from Lego, so what’d you expect? It still looks good, though. All he has to do now is build a car to put the V8 in. Video and gallery after the jump.

The Lego V8 engine is not for sale. Barebos says he started the project to challenge himself on realistically demonstrating how a V8 worked. More photos at Brickshelf.
