LEGO Bugatti 

LEGO Telematics has teamed up with Bugatti Chiron to build a completely functional Bugatti Chiron out of LEGO pieces. The LEGO car has a 5.3 horsepower engine, and weighs approximately 1,500 kilograms. Built out of the LEGO facility in Czech Republic, the car had 16 specialists working on the vehicle, which took about 13,000 hours of labour to make. Over one-million pieces were used in total, with the speedometer built entirely out of LEGO.

Bear Bandits

You should lock your car doors at all times, as you never know who or what will be able to get in there. A North Carolina mother and daughter came back to their vehicle when they witnessed a family of bears helping themselves to the 50 chocolate bars that they had stored inside the car, that was initially meant for a prom fundraiser. The bears ended up causing quite the mess in the back seat, leaving dirt everywhere and puncturing the seats cushions.

A few people in Ohio posted videos on social media of a strange occurrence they happened to see while driving. The footage showed a man clinging to the side of an SUV while it was driving around.

Goldfinger Gaget

A 70-year-old man from Florida installed a clever gadget in his vehicle to avoid getting charged on toll roads. The man has since been arrested for shielding his license plate from toll cameras. A vehicles' dash cam showed the 70-year-old man’s gadget lowering a black mask over the license plate when he approached the cameras and then raise it up again after. People are saying that this man’s gadget is similar to something that would have been seen in a James Bond movie.
