Check out this BMW Z4 made out of bricks

A BMW Z4 made from bricks and mortar. Think of it as the anti-leggera

  • What the giddy hell is this?

    This, in case in wasn't already patently obvious, is not your average BMW Z4. It is, and there's no way around it, a brick sculpture of a moderately interesting German sports car.

  • Why?

    Why bricks? We honestly have no idea. And why a BMW Z4? We honestly have no idea. 

    But it's Friday, and you've waded through another week. Why not be utterly mystified for a short while to celebrate?

  • You and I have different ideas on how to celebrate.

    That might be so. Ours is probably not worth getting too deep into at this moment.

  • I don’t know what’s weirder – the car or you lot.

    Well, we haven't kiln-fired a whole bunch of bricks and then sculpted them into the shape of one of the motoring world's also-rans. So we'd have to concede defeat in the World Weirdness Championship.

    Also, if anyone among you is fluent in Mandarin, please let us know what’s written on the numberplate.

  • Wait. The interior too?

    Oh yeah. And notice the reflection in this shot? The sculptor's even glazed his brick Z4, for the full 'I can absolutely believe that this isn't a real car!' experience. 

    Also, can we just say that they missed a golden pun opportunity? Do a brick model of the X6... and call it the X-Bricks!

  • I think you need some fresh air. Or medical attention.

    Yeah. This week's come down on us like a ton of bricks.

  • Get. Out.

    All right, all right... we're going.
