Wedged

Lego Technic Wedge Concept

The Elves have been a bit quiet of late, but as we only feed them when they find something we never have to wait too long for a blog-worthy creation.

Today’s comes from previous bloggee Horcik Designs, who has built this wonderful wedgy Technic concept car. Paying homage to all manner of designs from the 1970s (in celebration of 40 Years of LEGO Technic), Horcik’s model not only looks utterly brilliant – in that weird 70’s way where things simultaneously looked both quite cool and a bit crap – it features a wealth of awesome Technic functionality underneath its pointy exterior.

There’s working steering, suspension, opening gull-wing doors and tailgate, a pop-up headlight (singular) via an interior lever, and a mid-mounted transverse inline 3-cylinder engine. Take a closer look for yourself at Horcik’s photostream by clicking here.

Dupliner

Lego SL20 Streamliner

This is the ‘SL20 Streamliner’, and it’s gloriously, utterly, mad. Built from deep within the mind of Vince_Toulouse it contains some the very finest art deco styling details that we’ve ever seen. And some Duplo wheels. One of the proper Lego blogs claims it looks like a Batmobile, but that’s clearly nonsense, as the Streamliner is absolutely a cross between the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’s ‘Nautilus’ and, er… Peter Griffin’s Penis Car. Yup, we know our design icons. No matter, there’s more to see of this retro manhood-enlarging brilliance at Vince’s photostream – click the link above to make the trip.

What Lies Beneath

Lego Concept Muscle Car

This remarkably neat 6-wide muscle car by Angka Utama hides a cunning secret beneath its exterior curves.* Yes, underneath the white bodywork is another complete car, and it’s equally neat too. There’s more to see of Angka’s ingenious creation/creations on both Flickr and MOCpages – take a look via the links.

Black and Yellow

Lego Renault RS2027 Vision

Yea, uh huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

Black and yellow

The words of well-known poet Wiz Khalifa there, rapping about wasps, or taxis, or school buses, or Watford Football Club. Whatever he’s on about we have two black and yellow creations for you today, and each is miles better than Wiz’s affront to lyricists everywhere.

First up (above), suggested by a reader, is Nathanael Kuipers’ Renualt RS2027 Vision, and if it’s the future of Formula 1 after the introduction of cockpit canopies we’re all in. See more on both Flickr and MOCpages.

Today’s second creation (below) comes from Brick Knight of Flickr, who has equipped those thieving space pirates at Blacktron with one hell of a cool ride. There’s more to see more of his beautifully photographed Blacktron Scout Buggy via the link above.

Now where were we? Oh yes…

Lego O2 Concept Car

It’s the morning after Friday night here at The Lego Car Blog, which means we’re in no state to write anything. Luckily reader and previous bloggee Alexander Paschoaletto has found a creation to share and joins us as Guest Blogger. Over to Alex…

How does it feel to breathe oxygen? If you’re on your normal routine maybe it won’t be anything special, unless, maybe, as a reminder that you’re alive. If you’re exercising, each breath is a new pump of energy to keep you going. But if you’ve just escaped danger and can finally breathe relieved, oxygen will be all you need and all you want in that moment. A similar description fits for this little piece of brick that the author (RGB900) geniously assembled and named ‘O²’: it’s all you need in a supercar with all you want to feel while driving it.

Well, although we can’t confirm much of that, we can at least take a closer look and wonder. There are SNOT techniques on most parts, some brilliantly created front fenders, a beautiful tail light and the famous duck-tail, all packed in orange. Certainly one of the best Speed Champions scaled vehicles made to date!

An orange Smartie to Alex! (Much to the Elves’ chagrin). If you’d like to suggest a model as Alex has done you can do so via the Feedback and Submission Suggestions page, and you can see what we look for in a blog-worth creation by reading The Lego Car Blog Submission Guidelines here.

Yellow Peril

Lego Model Team Saloon Car

This magnificent creation is the latest build by Flickr’s Senator Chinchilla, and we’ve never wanted a car more. Looking part American, part Italian, and part Japanese, it may not be a real car, but gosh it’s cool. The Elves like it because it’s yellow of course, but we’ll take ours in black, as we don’t think anything could look more menacing. Head over to the Senator’s photostream via the link above, and leave a message from us requesting a black version…

Blue Steel

Lego Concept Supercar

This is not a real car. Well, obviously… but we mean it’s not a Lego model of a real car. Instead it’s a product borne entirely from the inside of Alexander Paschoaletto’s brainy parts, and we think it’s ridiculously good looking. A rival for Ferrari even. See if you agree at Alexander’s photostream by clicking here.

Model Mechanics

Lego Technic Hammerhead Supercar

Mechanics. They seem to appear less and less frequently here at TLCB. Such is the prevalence of LEGO’s (excellent) Power Functions electronics that mechanically operable functions have become a bit old-hat. However when done well, mechanical features can result in a model that’s more than a match for anything with a motor shoved in it.

Today we have one such example suggested to us by a reader, and it doesn’t have a battery box in sight. Built by Didumos69 of Eurobricks what it does have is a wealth of mechanical engineering, including all-wheel suspension, working steering, hand-adjustable seats, and a functioning sequential gearbox hooked up to a V8 piston engine.

You can see full details of the model at the Eurobricks forum via the link above, which includes detailed steps showing how each functional element was engineered. Click the link in the text above to make the jump.

Go Nuclear

Lego Technic Retrofuturistic Nuclear Car

The news is full of nuclear war hysteria at the moment, thanks to the orange leader of the free world and overweight North Korean despot Kim Jong-un. As a classy blog not interested in clickbait we’re seamlessly jumping on the bandwagon with this, Nico71‘s glorious Fallout 4 inspired retro-futuristic nuclear concept car.

Back in the ’50 and ’60s wild concept cars were all the rage, and were often powered by a variety of unusual fuels, including gas turbines, electricity and yes, even nuclear reaction.

Lego Technic Retrofuturistic Nuclear Car

Nico’s brilliant Technic concept car perfectly captures the ambitions of the age, and it’s clever too, featuring remote control drive and steering, electronically opening doors and a sliding roof canopy, plus working suspension and lights.

Control of the electrically-powered functions is taken care of thanks to a third-party BuWizz bluetooth unit, which allows graduated control via a bluetooth device and delivers up to 8x more power to the motors than LEGO’s own system.

You can see all of the build details and the full image gallery courtesy of Nico71’s excellent website by clicking here, and you watch the nuclear concept car in action (which is worth doing for the roof mechanism alone!) via the excellent video below.

Black Cloud

Lego Chrysler Hovercar

This unusual-looking chap has got himself one hell of a ride. According to the brochure, “The Chrysler 300XH is the next great luxury hover car for the discerning driver. Featuring a powerful 614 cubic inch wedge combustion engine driving two Sirius Cyberdine Industries 4982HL magnetrons, the 300XH gives a decadently smooth ride with ample power available at a touch of the accelerator.” Well we’re sold. Where do we sign Tim Henderson?

Glass Ceiling

Lego Concept Car

With no corporate hierarchy here at The Lego Car Blog we consider ourselves a wonderfully inclusive organisation. Man, woman or elf*, there’s no limit to how high you can go in the organisational structure. This is mostly because there is no structure whatsoever and thus every member of staff is simultaneously at the very bottom and very top of their career here.

Still, the glass ceiling does exist and it’s apparently very bad, but if RGB900‘s version is anything to go by we think the glass ceiling looks fantastic! RGB900 has fitted his to a rather lovely looking four seat concept car, and there are more images to see at his Flickr photostream via the link above. Unless you’re female, in which case you won’t be able to go past the first one.

*That’s not true. The Elves are on the bottom.

Work of Fiction

Lego Supercar

We don’t often blog fictional cars here at The Lego Car Blog. This is mostly because they tend to be a bit on the shit side. This isn’t though. It’s been built by Flickr’s Alexander Paschoaletto, it’s called the ‘Tonagari Atmos’, and it is – as you can see in these images – an absolutely beautiful piece of design. There are several images available to view – click the link above to check them out.

I Say Tomato…

Lego Bananarama Concept Car

…You say banana. Regular bloggee Angka Utama is back with two more stunning concept cars constructed in his unique building style. There’s more to see of ‘Bananarama’, ‘Tomatorama’, and his other non-fruit based builds on Flickr and MOCpages.
