The Elves have been working hard lately, and we have a bumper haul for you today. These are two of their finds, both ’90s Japanese sports cars, both roughly Speed Champions scale, and – most importantly – both with pop-up headlights.

SP_LINEUP‘s modified Nissan 240SX (above) and dazzz99‘s Honda NSX (below) capture the details of their real-life counterparts brilliantly, and remind us of a time when Japanese cars were at then top of their game.

Formula Drift

Lego Nissan 240SX S13

1990s Japanese cars are rocketing in value. Now that the generation brought up on Playstation racing games are old enough to afford the cars they drove digitally as kids, demand for twenty-year-old Japanese boxes is at an all-time high. This is one such car, the Nissan 240SX/S13 fastback.

Easily modifiable, the 240SX has become a staple of the drift scene, even though in standard form it was (whisper it) quite a bland box. This brilliant Speed Champions style 240SX fastback in full drift spec comes from Flickr’s Simon Przepiorka, and it features probably the most perfect use for LEGO’s new quarter-tile pieces that we’ve seen yet – it’s almost as if LEGO designed them specifically with the S13’s rear lights in mind.
