The Top 5…

Technic Supercars!

Welcome to The Lego Car Blog’s new series! Today marks the start of our collaboration with one of the top Lego Vehicle groups on Flickr, the superb Head Turnerz.

Head Turnerz’ members have supplied our Elves with a wealth of blog-worthy vehicles since the group’s inception in late 2013. We’ve decided to extend the mini-figure grab-hand of partnership to the group administrators in order to bring you the Top 5 creations in a variety of categories over the coming months.

First up we’ve decided to tackle the Big One – the Top 5 Technic Supercars ever built! Over to Head Turnerz to count down the list…

Lego Technic Pagani Huayra

No.1

Jorgeopesi’s Pagani Huayra is not just as visually stunning as the real thing, but with a working 7-speed manual gearbox, remote controlled drive, and a huge list of other amazing features, this Pagani is our favourite Technic Supercar ever. Congratulations to Jorgeopesi, and you can click here to see more of the world’s current best Technic Supercar.

 Lego Technic Porsche 911 GT3

No.2

The incredible Crowkillers takes a close second place with his amazing 997 Porsche GT3. Porsche’s 911 is very difficult to replicate in Lego, but Crowkillers has built the most accurate 911 we have ever seen – and it’s not just the body that’s accurate, there’s even a working 6-speed transmission hooked-up to the famous flat-6 engine. To see more details of this supercar make sure you visit Crowkiller’s brilliant website, you can even buy the instructions so that you can build it yourself!

 

Lego Technic McLaren MP4-12C

No.3

Dirk Klijn’s McLaren MP4-12C has a 3+Reverse gearbox and is one of the most visually appealing Technic Supercars on the web. But that’s not all. It’s also fully modular – meaning that the body can be completely separated from the chassis and each component removed, replaced and upgraded with ease – exactly how LEGO themselves design their products. To see the full gallery of number three in our list click here to visit Flickr.

 

Lego Technic Volkswagen Beetle

No.4

It wouldn’t be a Technic Supercar Top 5 without one of Sheepo‘s incredible models, and what’s better than a Volkswagen Beetle?! Sheepo’s VW Bug is not your typical ‘supercar’, but it is a technical masterpiece featuring everything that a real Beetle does, and it’s exceptionally detailed inside and out. Sheepo’s brilliant bug can be found on Flickr here, plus on his own website via www.sheepo.es.

Lego Technic Ferrari Enzo

No.5

Sariel’s incredible Enzo Ferrari comes in at number 5 with beautiful body lines and more functions than you can believe! With full independent suspension, a manual 4-speed gearbox, V12 piston engine, pneumatically opened doors, moving accelerator pedal, electrically adjustable seats, automated rear wing and much more, the only way to see it all is to take a visit to Sariel’s excellent website.

 

There you have it; the Top 5 Technic Supercars ever! Do you agree with the Head Turnerz choices, or has someone been missed who really should have made it onto this list? And is the Top 5 simply too red?

Phantasm Picture Special

Lego Phantasm Supercar

Master MOCer Paul Boratko (aka Crowkillers) is back! The latest in his long line of exceptional supercars is ‘Phantasm’, a mid-engined, two seat sports car featuring a huge range of Technic functions. Under the rear deck sits a V8 engine driving the rear wheels through a working gearbox, with steering, independent suspension and butterfly doors all appearing too.

Paul’s newest masterpiece will appear on both Brickshelf and his own website shortly, but you can get an early look at the Phantasm via the Eurobricks forum; click the link above to join the discussion!

Mr. Muscle

Lego Muscle Car

Today’s second post was also discovered on Brickshelf, it’s also Technic, and it also comes from a Lego Car Blog veteran; the wonderful Crowkillers.

Crowkillers’ vehicles have a reputation for being the best in the business and his latest offering looks set to continue the trend. Whilst both simpler and smaller than many of his previous creations, the quality – as always – is on a par with the official LEGO sets coming out of The LEGO Group. See more of his 1960’s style muscle car on Brickshelf, and you can read his story in the Master MOCers Series here.

FREE Supercar Instructions!

Crowkillers Instructions Free

Designing and sharing creations is what the Lego Community is all about. ‘MOCing’ as it’s known is what makes LEGO the world’s best toy. There’s no trick to it; put a pile a bricks in front of a 3 year old (or a Lego Car Blog Elf) and they will instinctively and intuitively begin to build, although staff here don’t blog their own MOCs, as then you’d know who we are!

Besides MOCing however, many members of the Lego Community would love to build and own some of the amazing creations that have been designed by builders who don’t work for The Lego Group. Creations such as Crowkillers‘ Lamborghini Gallardo above and this incredible remote control Tow Truck by Dirk Klijn shown below.

Lego Tow Truck

Well now you can!

Dirk has made instructions for his spectacular creation available through crowkillers.com, where it’s joined by another 9 amazing models by Paul Boratko (aka Crowkillers), Nathanel Kuipers and Jennifer Clark. Pricing ranges from free to $15 and instructions come in the form of a PDF download.

Click here to see the full range of model instructions currently available.

Paul ‘Crowkillers’ Boratko has also very kindly accepted a visit by our Elves, who thrust a Master MOCers voice recorder under his nose.

Here Be Monsters

Lego Monster TruckPaul Boratko (aka Crowkillers) is one of our favourite builders here at The Lego Car Blog. His models look and function brilliantly, but it’s they way they’re built which sets them apart; they’re as easy to build as a LEGO set. His latest, entitled ‘Some kind of monster’ is another beautifully engineered modular build, and one that can be easily modified with Power Functions motors. See the gallery and be inspired on MOCpages.

Tooth Whitening

Lego Supercar Vampire GTWe fully expect to receive a lot of spam comments for home whitening kits following this title, but we couldn’t resist. Crowkillers’ spectacular Vampire GT Technic Supercar has undergone a colour change, swapping its previous midnight hue for something a whole lot more Apple. Normally this wouldn’t be worthy of another post, but when it looks this good we couldn’t let it go unnoticed. See more of the new Vampire on Brickshelf or at crowkillers.com.

And points to us today for keeping this post free from Michael Jackson jokes.

Touchdown!

Crowkillers/Paul Boratko, has scored yet another sensational touchdown with his Deluxe Technic Supercar NFL Pittsburgh Steeler’s Edition.  This guy is seriously talented, if only he worked for TLG.  Hint hint wink wink.

Twilight

Own this car!

Like teen girls everywhere, we wish we had a Vampire. Crowkillers’ Technic Supercar, featured on The Lego Car Blog earlier in the year, is now on Lego Cuusoo. Vote for it and Lego may put it into production. The model will also be available shortly on eBay, with all proceeds going to the Make A Wish Foundation.

Blood Sucker

It will suck your blood then blow your mind.

He has done it again!  The Vampire GT – Another technical marvel from Crowkillers.  Includes a new 5 speed with reverse transmission,  H.O.G. steering and  4 wheel independent suspension.  There is a switch on the dash that lets you choose between rear wheel and all wheel drive.  At the rear are bevelled gears that will open and close each door.  Stunning.
