People who will attend this year's Chicago Auto Show will be able to drive up and down Mercedes Benz's new dizzyingly steep Iron Schöckl Mountain, place a race simulation of the world-famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance course, or even check out an amazing and carefully-crafter Lego Batmobile, complete with a roving Chevy bat signal.
The Chicago Auto Show 2017
According to NWI.com, there's also a Lego version of the Detroit skyline, a talking Ford robot, a gigantic inflatable Death Star, and a beeping R2-D2 in a Nissan SUV that has been customized to look just like a ship from the "Rogue One" Star Wars movie. There are even customized Blackhawks, Cubs and White Sox cars, including a Toyota Tundra World Series-themed pickup truck hauling an oversized replica trophy.
