Little Lego Lamborghini

Lego Lamborghini Countach

ZetoVince‘s little Lamborgini may only be seven studs wide, but it’s unmistakably a Countach. It helps that Lamborghini’s insane ’70s supercar has such a distinctive shape, but it takes quite a bit of skill to recreate it in small-scale Lego building. Zeto definitely has that skill, and you can see more his miniature masterpiece on Flickr via the link above.

Sideswipe

Lego Transformers Sideswipe Lamborghini Countach

It’s been a while since TLCB Elves have been allowed to watch Transformers cartoons, but today one Elf is a hero amongst his peers for finding this, Joe Perez (aka MortalSwordsman)’s fiendishly clever recreation of 1984’s ‘Sideswipe’.

In car mode Sideswipe is the poster car for the 1970s; Lamborghini’s actually quite rubbish – but nevertheless iconic – Countach. Lambo’s be-winged V12 supercar is not an easy thing to create from Lego, and is even less so when it needs to reform as an alien robot.

Joe’s brain is a much bigger than the average one in TLCB Towers though, and as such his Sideswipe model transforms beautifully from Countach to robot, and looks superb in either mode. There’s more to see at his photostream on Flickr – click the link above to roll out.

’70s Pin Up

Lego Lamborghini CountachProbably the first ‘Supercar’, whatever the guys at Ferrari think, is something that didn’t wear a prancing horse on the front. It wore a bull. The Lamborghini Countach was the wildest poster car of the ’70s and ’80s, and therefore maybe the wildest car ever. It was also fairly rubbish, being impossible to drive or see out of. But perhaps that’s what made it Super. Rolling Bricks recreates the ’70s icon using a brilliantly simple palette of regular white pieces. See more over on Flickr at the link above, or on MOCpages here.

Raging Bull

Lego Lamborghini Countach

THE poster car of the late ’70s.

This epic early Lamborgini Countach comes from Model Team masters the Bing-Bong Brothers on Flickr and MOCpages. Before the excess of the eighties diluted the shape with wings and body-kits, the Countach was almost an elegent-looking supercar. And one that paved the way for some explosive successors. See more here, and here.

The Best Lego Car Ever?

Lego Lamborghini Countach

Admittedly, ‘Best Car Ever!’ (or Best Car Evarr!!11!) is a phrase banded around a lot on the interweb, but this MOC could well be it. The incredible studs-up giant in the picture above took three years to design digitally, and another two to build. Polo-Freak is the orchestrator behind this truly epic project, and such is its scale it has generated its own Special Themes thread over on Eurobricks.

The Lamborghini Countach was actually quite a poor car, but that didn’t stop it becoming the poster car of the late ’70s to early ’80s, and in 3D form it’s even more impressive. Polo-Freak has recreated every Bertone-designed detail, from the teledial alloys to the tip of the huge rear wing. See the full gallery of pictures on Eurobricks at the aforementioned link.
