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.

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.

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.

And now for something completely different. No, we don’t know either, but you can see more of this courtesy of Karf Oohlu, the mind of whom we imagine is like one of those Salvador Dalí paintings with all the melting clocks.

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.

Spaceballs

Lego Concept Car

With the proper Lego blogs becoming increasingly hysterical about the latest rehash of a 35 year old movie we thought TLCB better have some Space Trek Wars content too, so here’s our attempt!

This curious vehicle comes from chumuhoul of Brickshelf, and its inventive design features the ingenious repurposing of one of LEGO’s most pointless pieces, the giant grey Death Star sphere. Packaged neatly into the rear, chumuhoul’s simply-titled ‘Future Car‘ employs this piece in a similar way to a Dyson Ball vacuum cleaner, which means that the Technic figure at the controls can easily navigate table legs and other household obstacles (not that TV advertising works on us…). Click the link above to roll over to Brickshelf for the full gallery.

Go Wildcats!

Lego Buick Wildcat II

This gorgeous Model Team recreation of Buick’s stunning 1954 Wildcat II concept car was discovered by one of our Elves on MOCpages. Built by Beni Henzen it has one of the most beautiful interiors we’ve seen in a Lego car, plus opening hood, trunk and doors. It also enabled us to Google images of the Kentucky Wildcats cheerleading squad for ‘research’ purposes, so we’re pretty happy here in the office. Click the link above to see more of Beni’s Wildcat, or join us on Google to see Kentucky’s finest…

Club Tropicana

Lego Concept Car Tropicana

Club Tropicana, drinks are free,
Fun and sunshine – there’s enough for everyone.
All that’s missing is the sea,
But don’t worry, you can suntan!

Sorry, we’re not sure what got into us there. This is TLCB regular Angka Utama’s ‘Targa Tropicana’ concept car, and whilst the name really is no excuse for linking to the above musical disaster, the model itself is definitely worth your click. You can see more of Angka’s 8-wide masterpiece on both MOCpages and Flickr – click the links to Pack your Bags and Leave Tonight.

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.

McLovin’

Lego McLaren GTR Concept

We don’t often post fictional cars here at TLCB, but occasionally one of our Elves will uncover one that we actually like. This find goes well beyond that, as we absolutely love it. Called the ‘Eunos LT1 GTR’ it’s a fictional racing McLaren and it looks, well… amazing. And very McLaren-y too, with many of the firm’s current design themes used throughout the build. It’s the work of serial bloggee Senator Chinchilla and there’s more to see on Flickr; click here to take a look, and – if you’re Ron Dennis – maybe pass it on to the McLaren design studio…

G-Force

Lego Concept Car

Fictional cars rarely feature here at TLCB, because they are – mostly – crap. This one, entitled ‘Gravity GT1’ isn’t crap at all though (although a wider windscreen would be nice), and it’s also one of the shiniest Lego creations we’ve ever seen. Builder Harry Gravett must have been busy with the furniture polish.

Harry’s creation was suggested to us by a reader, and you can see more of the Gravity on either MOCpages or Flickr.

Lego Transformer Car

There are just two weeks left of TLCB Summer Building Competition, with entries via our Flickr partners continuing to keep the Elves busy. This is one of the first submissions to take the Transformers route, built by TLCB debutant Andrew Lee, and it’s his first ever Model Team scale car. You can see more of his brilliantly transforming supercar on Flickr – click the link above to make the jump.
