Here at The Lego Car Blog we are not fans of 1970s Americana. We grew up on a diet of small, nimble, efficient cars that could go around corners and that didn’t break down unless they were French. 1970s American barges therefore are definitely not our bag, being precisely the opposite of all of the above.
However, even in America’s automotive wilderness years there were a handful of oases. This is one such vehicle, the utterly gorgeous Chevrolet Corvette C3.
This beautiful Lego Technic example of Chevrolet’s icon is the work of Eurobricks resident (and Technic genius) Madoca. Underneath the wonderfully curvaceous bodywork sits a fully functioning remote control chassis, complete with independent suspension all round, working lights (including pop-up function), opening doors, trunk and hood plus a removable targa roof panel, and of course RC drive and steering.
To see more of Madoca’s exceptional build head over to the Eurobricks discussion via the link above, but first make sure you check out the Corvette in action via the video below.
My grandfather has this exact car.
Madoca1977 is absolutely awesome. I’ve seen some of his work, and his AWD cars are exceptional! I’m a bit surprised with this classic Corvette after many off-road models, but this is fantastic! I would rate it 5 stars if I could. Liked!
