K'Nex is embarking on a Guiness World Record attempt to make the World’s Largest K’NEX Structure.

The 13.5 metres long structure will be a life-sized replica of the Bloodhound Supersonic Car, made from 300,000 K'Nex parts.

The project commissioned by official supporters group, the 1K Club, to promote The Bloodhound Project which aims to inspire children science and engineering by developing a 1,000mph Land Speed Record Car. 

“This is an incredibly exciting project for us and one that perfectly demonstrates the unique scale building qualities of the K’Nex building system," said Eileen Thornton, K’Nex UK’s head of marketing.

"With our Bloodhound K’Nex Car we’re confident that we can create the world’s largest K’Nex structure and gain a Guinness World Record for this amazing construction.

"The activity is a fantastic fit as part of ‘K’Nex Big Thing’ marketing campaign and we’re delighted to be supporting the inspiring educational work of The Bloodhound Project.”

The Bloodhound K'Nex car is being built by the Royal British Legion Industries, a charity providing employment, support and care to the Armed Forces community and those affected by disability, health conditions or social welfare needs.

The team is headed up by David Church, who has previously overseen the creation of a life-sized replica of the famous Grave Digger Monster Truck in 2012.

A series of open days is scheduled this summer to enable visitors to add pieces to the record attempt construction.
