Following on from our report last week, we can now see the finished result created by the children who visited BMW Welt in Munich last weekend (with a little help from their parents and the employees of BMW Welt).

Involving 800 children aged between five and 13 years old, the full-sized BMW X1 model was built in just four days using 165,000 LEGO bricks.

The result is impressive – but we’re not sure about their choice of yellow colour!

The build of the model not only brought a lot of fun to the young car designers, but also served a good purpose. For each built-up Lego blocks, BMW will make a donation to the Children’s World “Die Arche” in Munich, where socially disadvantaged children are cared for.

The LEGO BMW X1 will be on display at BMW Welt from 25th November.
