Welcome to The Lego Car Blog’s new series! Today marks the start of our collaboration with one of the top Lego Vehicle groups on Flickr, the superb Head Turnerz.
Head Turnerz’ members have supplied our Elves with a wealth of blog-worthy vehicles since the group’s inception in late 2013. We’ve decided to extend the mini-figure grab-hand of partnership to the group administrators in order to bring you the Top 5 creations in a variety of categories over the coming months.
First up we’ve decided to tackle the Big One – the Top 5 Technic Supercars ever built! Over to Head Turnerz to count down the list…
Jorgeopesi’s Pagani Huayra is not just as visually stunning as the real thing, but with a working 7-speed manual gearbox, remote controlled drive, and a huge list of other amazing features, this Pagani is our favourite Technic Supercar ever. Congratulations to Jorgeopesi, and you can click here to see more of the world’s current best Technic Supercar.
The incredible Crowkillers takes a close second place with his amazing 997 Porsche GT3. Porsche’s 911 is very difficult to replicate in Lego, but Crowkillers has built the most accurate 911 we have ever seen – and it’s not just the body that’s accurate, there’s even a working 6-speed transmission hooked-up to the famous flat-6 engine. To see more details of this supercar make sure you visit Crowkiller’s brilliant website, you can even buy the instructions so that you can build it yourself!
Dirk Klijn’s McLaren MP4-12C has a 3+Reverse gearbox and is one of the most visually appealing Technic Supercars on the web. But that’s not all. It’s also fully modular – meaning that the body can be completely separated from the chassis and each component removed, replaced and upgraded with ease – exactly how LEGO themselves design their products. To see the full gallery of number three in our list click here to visit Flickr.
It wouldn’t be a Technic Supercar Top 5 without one of Sheepo‘s incredible models, and what’s better than a Volkswagen Beetle?! Sheepo’s VW Bug is not your typical ‘supercar’, but it is a technical masterpiece featuring everything that a real Beetle does, and it’s exceptionally detailed inside and out. Sheepo’s brilliant bug can be found on Flickr here, plus on his own website via www.sheepo.es.
Sariel’s incredible Enzo Ferrari comes in at number 5 with beautiful body lines and more functions than you can believe! With full independent suspension, a manual 4-speed gearbox, V12 piston engine, pneumatically opened doors, moving accelerator pedal, electrically adjustable seats, automated rear wing and much more, the only way to see it all is to take a visit to Sariel’s excellent website.
There you have it; the Top 5 Technic Supercars ever! Do you agree with the Head Turnerz choices, or has someone been missed who really should have made it onto this list? And is the Top 5 simply too red?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments or via the Feedback page, and you can let the Head Turnerz administrators know your opinion on their Top 5 by joining the discussion at the Head Turnerz Group – just click the link above to join.
We’ll see you soon for our next Top 5. Watch this space!
Thanks, that’s a nice surprise. I’m not overly happy with my Enzo, it seems to suffer from overloading with functions. I’m hoping to improve 🙂
I can’t believe that you’re not satisfied with that outrageous supercar. 😀
Um, I meant not overly happy. :facepalm:
Nice article, though I would have much preferred seeing Sheepo’s Mustang GT500 instead of the Beetle. 😛
Thanks for stopping by. We’d probably agree, although it’s nice to see a non ‘Super car’ supercar get a nod. We would also look at Sheepo’s Veyron. But that isn’t red…
I don’t agree completely with the list, but these are sure 5 suburb Technic supercars!
Lovely new series!
Thanks for stopping by.
We’re glad you like our new collaboration. Let us (or the Head Turnerz guys) know who would make it onto your Top 5! If it was solely our list we might suggest some others too!
Good list, but I would have put the vampire gt there. That is the best crowkiller car. I build that and the Porsche and the vampire gt is better with more features and looks great. Also sheepo mustang or porsche. A beetle isn’t a supercar.
Thanks for stopping by.
It’s probably our favourite too, however we can see why the guys at Head Turnerz chose something a little more unusual!
A Technic Supercar doesn’t have to be fast and exotic. A super car (two words) does though.
Perhaps we should let Eurobricks pick a Top 5 too?!
Wow, I am surprised, my favorite of all time is Sheepo´s porsche but thanks for including my huayra.
Thanks for stopping by, and congratulations on making it into Head Turnerz’ Top 5 List!
Lovely. Thanks for posting my 5 best creations! ;D No, these guys did an amazing job, and their cays are beautiful. Congratulations!
Thanks for stopping by, we’re glad you like this collaboration.
Dirk’s model is deserving to be in the top 5 because of how nice it looks, but not so sure about the rest. How did the amazing Vamp GT not make the list? It was one of the most innovative and well built pure technical cars to come along and should probably be #1 or at worst #2. Also Sheepo’s Porsche is far better than the one on the list at #2. And where is the Kuipers’ Concept Car? I would go Vamp GT, Sheepo Porsche, Concept Car, Hartley Lamborghini, Dirk McLaren. Not necessarlly in that order, but all in the top 5. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by.
There are some in TLCB office who would agree with your Top 5 list!
It was nigh impossible to pick just 5 – even a top 10 would have been nail-bitingly hard. There are some amazingly talented technic builders out there, and an even greater number of amazing technic supercars.
With that said, this was a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. Thanks for the opportunity, TLCB, and I’m really happy with the community reception! 😀
