Horse Race

We get the feeling most Ferrari owners don’t just have one prancing horse in their stable. Regular bloggee Angka Utama doesn’t either, having built a whole herd of historic horses from Ferrari’s ’80s-’90s back catalogue.

Pictured here are a Ferrari 308 GTS, 328 GTS and 348 Testa Rossa, whilst a further classic Mondial cabriolet can also be found at his photostream. Each has been created superbly in 8-wide ‘Speed Champions’ scale, based on an ingenious modular platform, and each includes the cleverest windshield surround – made from a rubber band held under tension – that we’ve ever seen on a vehicle.

There’s more to see of each of Angka’s brilliant Ferrari builds at his Flickr photostream, including this awesome exploded-view image showing how the modular construction and that rubber band windshield surround have been designed. Head to Angka’s stable via the link above to give each horse a ride.

Hommage Homage

Lego Technic BMW Hommage

When Audi aren’t cheating worldwide emission tests they’re busy developing even more boring SUVs with angry aggressive faces to be driven by angry aggressive drivers. BMW on the other hand, whilst once the tool of choice for sunglasses wearing douchebags, seem to getting progressively classier and more adventurous.

This is one of their recent highlights, the totally and completely beautiful 328 Hommage. Well, this isn’t obviously, as it’s made from LEGO, but it is a worthy homage to their, er… Hommage. Built by Flickr’s Jeroen Ottens it features independent suspension, working steering with Ackerman geometry, a 4-speed gearbox with auto function, and a 6-cylinder piston engine.

There’s more to see of Jeroen’s homage to the Hommage at his photostream – click the link above to make the jump.
