Simon’s creation is based on a real modified Celica running a Honda F22C engine, and he’s captured the car brilliantly in Lego form. Head over to Flickr via the link above to check out all the pics and find a link to the real car.
Here’s a car that we’d like to own for real. Toyota’s first generation Celica produced between 1970 and 1977 has become a seriously cool ride, even more so when painted bright orange and lightly modified. This awesome remote controlled Lego version of the 1970 TA22-type Celica comes from LegoMarat of Flickr, and he’s lightly modified his creation too.
With a third-party BuWizz brick installed LegoMarat’s Celica produces up to eight times the power of a model powered by a standard LEGO battery, making his model a seriously quick bit of kit.
There are more images to view on Flickr via the link above, and you can see the real-life Celica TA22 that inspired LegoMarat’s build by clicking here.
Why, Senator Chinchilla, why? This excellent Model Team recreation of Toyota’s Celica Supra (from back when the two models were one) features his own neat 3D printed wheels on the front, and – alas – ‘stanced’ wheels on the back. Meaning that the ride and handling – honed by a very clever Japanese bloke over the course of many months, maybe even years – has been totally ruined. Still, the Elves like it. But then they are idiots. Anyway, there’s more to see of the Senator’s top-notch* creation on Flickr at the link above.
*Apart from ‘dat stance tho…’
Classic Japanese cars have become very cool lately. Probably because most have oxidised beyond the point of no return, and thus they are now quite rare beasts.
This one is a 1974 Toyota Celica, from way back when Toyota made quite a few interesting – and sometimes even beautiful – cars (why has it all gone Toyota?). Rhys’ Pieces is the builder, and although he says this model is unfinished it still looks good enough to us to be published here.
