Lego Elf

The Lego Car Blog Elves are riotously excited this afternoon, because today one of them found a car named after themselves! This 5-wide slice of classic British motoring cake is a Riley Elf, which was basically an Austin/Morris Mini with a slightly ugly boot stuck on the rear, some extra chrome on the outside and some extra leather on the inside.

Volkswagen might be grabbing automotive headlines with their fancy MQB platform shared across multiple brands but the British Motor Corporation did it 50 years earlier with efforts like this. And their thriving presence today proved it worked out great in the long run… Anyway, see more of this Elf by visiting Lego Guy’s photostream.

  1. Brilliant, I used to own a Wosely Hornet, never thought Lego could get near something as retro as thing.
