Here at HYPEBEAST, we’re pretty fascinated by the extent to which LEGO blocks can be used, whether it’s to recreate classical paintings, an X-Wing Starfighter weighing 45,000 lbs, or some of the world’s greatest examples of architecture.

Melbourne-based entrepreneur Steve Sammartino and 20-year-old Romanian genius Raul Oaida came together to build a LEGO hot-rod that’s powered exclusively with air.
