After all, it is also built in parts...

Certainly you have already seen the super-scaled 8880 that uses to exhibit at some LEGO events, or in some LEGOLAND parks. At least it is not the first time it is mentioned here at TBs [1, 2].

I've just crossed with the photo below and well... Besides its huge size, it is still assembled in parts, at each event setup.
Ok!... quite larger "parts", but still parts!



Or was this just taken after a crash test?....

Photo taken at LEGO World - Copenhagen 2012, last February.

That is awesome! I wonder if they have to whip out the 8880 instructions to put it back together. Is that a real torque wrench I see on the floor under the rear suspension?

This is a nice, follow-on addition to your original "Scaled-Up TECHNIC Cars" topic: http://technicbricks.blogspot.com/2008/11/scaled-up-technic-cars.html .

Front suspension, you mean.

This is the one large feature model from Lego that I always wanted to see in person...

I remember first seeing pictures of this in the lego technic club magazine in about 1994 or 1995, have always wanted to see it in person but I never know where it's gonna be. I went to Legoland windsor in 1996 (the year it opened) and I thought it would surely be there, but I couldn't find it.

I think it's presence has been more regular at LEGO World events.
Also where I once saw it live. :)
