- A working Lego-V8-engine.

Lego - a toy that's secretly bought and played with by middle-aged men - can be used to build practically anything. The most current proof for this is a project done by a Lego-enthusiast, who put together a V-8-engine from Lego-pieces. What's so special about that? Well, the engine actually works.

Just another Brick in the.. Engine?

As the Lego-Tribe on Drivetribe reports, a tinker known as "Barman" made this happen. He used an electric motor to power the engine and a 9V train speed regulator as throttle control. The layout of the engine on its whole is geared to a standard American V-8. You can read all about the parts in detail on the forums of eurobricks.com:
