Expensive Mistake

Lego Ferrari 250 GT California

This is a Ferrari 250 GT California, one of the most valuable cars ever made (currently fetching around $20million), and this is one crashing backwards over a cliff.

Don’t worry, it wasn’t a real GT California used in ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’, and you can recreate the famous scene with your own plastic replica thanks to Flickr’s Peter Blackert, who has constructed the famous car beautifully in brick form.

Click the link above to see the full gallery, and where you’ll also find a link to Peter’s new book which explains how to build a Ferrari 250 GT California model yourself.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Lego Ferrari 250 GT SWB Ferris Beuller

One of the defining coming-of-age films of the 1980s, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off told the story of one young man’s quest to have a day of extraordinary leisure. It starred Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Grey, Mia Sara, and even (briefly) Charlie Sheen, but the real star of the movie is of course the gorgeous 1961 Ferrari GT California.

TLCB favourite Ralph Savelsberg (aka Mad Physicist) has recreated the beautiful classic from the film (complete with Ferris figure) in his un-mistakable building style, and you can see all the photos at Ralph’s photostream here.

Small But Mighty

Small But Mighty

We thought this was a medium-size MOC at first, but believe it or not this highly detailed Ferrari 250 GT by Angka Utama is 4-wide.

With the creative use of LEGO’s Disney Cars 2 parts Angka captures the look very well; we think this is the most detailed 4-wide we’ve seen for a while. Check it out on MOCpages.
