The Eagle Has Landed

Classic F1 Car

Eagle Weslake Mk1. Just one win. Still, more than HRT.

This stunning blue racing car comes from one of the best motorsport builders around, RoscoPC*. Found on Brickshelf, this 1967 Eagle Weslake V12 features working suspension, engine and steering. The real deal won just a single race, in the hands of Dan Gurney at the notoriously dangerous Spa circuit. After 26 races the car was retired as the team focussed their efforts outside of Grand Prix racing, but nevertheless it earned fame simply by being one the most beautiful Grand Prix racing cars ever made. See more of Rosco’s Lego version at his Brickshelf page via the link above.

*See if you can spot his name in the picture.
