One of cinema’s most famous cars has come to life in all of its blocky glory.

Ahead of The Lego Batman Movie’s release next month, Warner Bros. has teamed up with Chevrolet to build a life-size Batmobile out of Lego. The Lego car—which, unfortunately is not for sale—took about 1,833 hours to build and is composed of 233,187 Lego pieces. According to Chevrolet’s website, it’s got just about everything you’d need to save Gotham City from corruption and destruction and it stacks up against both the Notorious Lowrider and the Riddler Racer. While it’s not a practical-looking car by any means, its style and build more than make up for that.

Along with a life-size model of Lego Batman’s Batmobile, Chevrolet put the car up for an even bigger test by spoofing its own car commercial. Lego Batman is definitely not a fan of the honest but harsh criticism about the car—as well as the person who drives it.

We won’t see the real-life Lego Batmobile anytime soon, but The Lego Batman Movie swings into theaters Feb. 10.
