Le Mans GTE Pro Grid

Lego Le Mans 2018 GTE PRO Grid

The 24 Hours of Le Mans 2018 is nearly upon us! The world’s greatest endurance race is now in it’s 86th year, and in 2018 will feature sixty cars in four different classes, from the ultra-hi-tech LMP1 prototypes to the GTE Am class of supercars and gentleman drivers.

Somewhere in the middle sits GTE Pro, in which professional drivers for both works and independent teams will fight it out whilst dodging the ludicrously fast LMP1/2 cars hurtling past. This year six different manufacturers have qualified, and previous bloggee Lasse Deleuran has built all six beautifully in Lego form.

There are three Porsche 911 RSRs (featured here previously), two Ferrari 488 GTE EVOs, a Ford GT, a Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, plus the brand new Aston Martin Vantage AMR and BMW M8 GTE.

Each is a fantastic build utilising some ingenious techniques to capture both the complicated GTE-class aero and to accurately recreate the liveries of the teams. Head over to Flickr via the link above to see more of each build and choose your favourite!

Two Horse Race

Lego Ferrari 488

It looks like this year’s Formula 1 World Championship is slipping way from Ferrari yet again. Assuming Hamilton and Mercedes-AMG wrap up another World Championship at the U.S Grand Prix in Texas later today it leaves the team a decade without a title.

So in commiserations here are two of the company’s finest road-going efforts of recent times, showing that even when performance on track is lacking, Ferrari can still produce a road car of epic ability.

First up (above) is the Ferrari 488 GTB, recreated superbly in LEGO’s Speed Champions style by previous bloggee Peter Blackert aka Lego911. Peter has recently become a published author with a new book that details how to build Lego creations like this one. You can see more of the 488 GTB at Peter’s photostream by clicking the link above, and you can read our interview with him as part of our ‘Become a Pro’ series by clicking this awesome link.

Today’s second modern Ferrari (below) comes from Flickr’s RGB900, who has recreated probably the most stupidly named car of recent times. And we include the Mazda Bongo Friendee in that. The Ferrari La Ferrari may have a ridiculous title but it’s quite a car, and RGB’s Speed Champions version captures the Italian hypercar in expert fashion.

You can see more of the build at RGB’s photostream via the link above, whilst we watch Mercedes-AMG stroll to another F1 World Championship. There’s always next year Ferrari…
