Life at the Top

For those lucky enough to be fantastically wealthy, they’ll probably be slightly more so by the time you’ve finished reading this post. That’s because to make money, all you need is… money.

Take the Ferrari Enzo, a $660,000 car when it was new twenty years ago, and now worth just over $3million. Even inflation-adjusted that’s still an increase of $2.1million. That rise equates to $8,750 a month over the last two decades – double the median wage in America, tax free, and without working a day.

With a bleak economic forecast ahead we can expect many will suffer hardship probably not seen since the 2008 crash, but the new (unelected) Government of the TLCB’s home nation (it’s complicated…) has just slashed tax for the wealthy. Because to make money all you need is money. We’d make a joke about trickle-down economics, but 99% of readers wouldn’t get it.

Thus we won’t be previewing LEGO’s newly revealed $600 set, because it seems in rather poor taste at the moment (plus it’s Star Wars), and instead we’ll use this rather excellent recreation of an early-’00s hypercar by Flickr’s 3D supercarBricks to moan about the growing poverty in the sixth largest economy on earth.

So keep your eyeballs on the ads on this page, click them if you’re interested, and we’ll give away what we can of the proceeds. It might be needed more than ever this winter.

My Other Supercar’s a Lamborghini

LEGO’s new 42115 Lamborghini Sian FKP37 adds another monumental Technic set to their line-up of real-world vehicles. Even if we hadn’t heard of the actual car and the real set seems to be getting somewhat mixed reviews, thanks in part to the new colour (or rather colours, as it seems to be in reality).

Cue James Tillson of Flickr, who has dissembled his 42115 Lamborghini Sian so fast we suspect he may not have built it in the first place, and used the pieces to create another epic limited-run hypercar, the 2002-2004, 400 unit, 650bhp Ferrari Enzo.

Ferrari Enzos definitely didn’t come in green (or even the various greens that the 42115 set seems to contain), but apart from the colour anomaly James’s Technic recreation is instantly recognisable as Marenello’s most famous product. A working mid-mounted V12 sits underneath the opening engine cover, with the model also featuring realistic inboard suspension, functioning steering, opening scissor doors, and much more besides.

There’s much more of James’s spectacular 42115 B-Model Ferrari Enzo to see at his photostream by clicking here, and if you’d like to enter your own alternate build into TLCB Lock-Down B-Model Competition you still have a few hours left.

Enzo Again

Ferrari’s Enzo has been around for seventeen years now(!), inspiring very probably thousands of LEGO versions. Four of those were built by Noah_L / Lego Builders (the last of which you can find here when it was blogged back in 2015), who has now added a fifth iteration of his Enzo design to his impressive back-catalogue. His latest version reduces the scale to 1:16 from 1:12, yet keeps all the detail, including an opening trunk, clamshell engine cover, and butterfly doors. There are lots more images to see at both Flickr and MOCpages – take a look via the links.

Dark Horse

Lego Ferrari Enzo

Launched back in 2002, the Ferrari Enzo arguably kick-started the whole hypercar thing that’s currently going on, along with the likes of Pagani, Bugatti, Porsche, and McLaren, and with Mercedes-Benz and even Toyota rumoured to be joining soon.

Powered by a naturally-aspirated 6 litre V12 the Enzo could hit a top speed in excess of 220mph, generating over 1,700lb of downforce as it did so. Only 400 Enzo’s were made in a production run that lasted just two years from ’02-’04, each costing around $660,000 (back in 2002!). That looks like a bargain now though, as Enzo’s are currently fetching up to $4m at auction.

Lego Ferrari Enzo

Rather more attainable than the real thing is this one, designed by previous bloggee Alexander Paschoaletto over 5 painstaking months. Constructed from LEGO’s ace dark blue colour (that we think looks brilliant instead of the usual Ferrari red), Alex spent almost a month just figuring out how to build the Enzo’s fiendishly complicated doors.

Ingenious building techniques are evident throughout the design (including in those opening doors) and you can see more Alexander’s superb recreation of Ferrari’s iconic early-2000s hypercar at his photostream – click the link above for all the images.

Tampa Bay Ferrari Dealership – Picture Special

Lego Ferrari Dealership

Constructed from around 36,000 pieces and 4 years in the making, this is one of the largest Lego projects that this site has ever featured. Ryan Link, a regular bloggee here at The Lego Car Blog, has been very busy.

Huge Lego Ferrari Dealership

Loosely based on the Tampa Bay Ferrari dealership, Ryan has designed and built a home for the eight Ferrari models that he has constructed over the past few years. Measuring 192×144 studs, Ryan’s enormous creation can easily house his collection, and features a wealth of incredible detailing, including brick-built wall mosaics depicting classic Ferrari models, beautiful Ferrari lettering, and even a couple of wonderfully intricate prancing horse logos too.

Lego Ferrari Dealership

The shot above shows just how good the aforementioned mosaics and logos look, which feature throughout the interior of the dealership including in the showroom, customer lounge and accessories area, and workshop, all of which are lit by a third-party LED system integrated into the roof of the build.

Lego Ferrari Models

The stars of Ryan’s incredible build are of course the Ferrari models which it was built to house, and they include a 458 Italia, Enzo, LaFerrari, 599 GTB, Testarossa, F12 Berlinetta, and even a fully liveried Ferrari team truck, all of which have been published here.

There’s a whole lot more of this spectacular creation to see at Ryan Link’s photostream and we cannot recommend clicking this link enough. LEGO, Ferrari… if ever you visit this little corner of the internet; invite Ryan out for a chat – we think the officially licensed Ferrari range of LEGO sets could so with a bit of expansion…

Ferrari Enzo – Picture Special

Lego Ferrari Enzo

It’s time for one of your suggestions. This stunning Ferrari Enzo comes from previous bloggee Ryan Link of MOCpages, and it is – as you can see – a beautifully accurate recreation of one of Ferrari’s greatest hits.

Featuring a detailed engine and interior, plus opening butterfly doors and engine lid, Ryan’s model used some mind-bindingly intricate techniques to achieve the famous shape. See how he’s done it via the link to his MOCpage above!

Flat Pack Ferrari

Ferrari 625 TRC Spider Lego

Nope, Ikea haven’t started selling Italian super cars, these two gorgeous Ferrari mosaics come from Ryan Link of MOCpages, and they are quite astoundingly brilliant.

Unlike many Lego mosaics, where the pieces simply slot together but are unattached to one another (or worse, when someone just runs a photo from the internet through a computer programme), Ryan’s stunning images are completely brick-built and every piece is connected. You can see how it’s been done thanks to a ‘behind the scenes‘ shot, and if anything it’s even more impressive than the images here, with some fiendishly difficult connections.

There’s more available on MOCpages – click here to see the beautiful Ferrari 625 TRC and here to see the Ferrari Enzo.

Ferrari Enzo Lego

Ferrari Enzo – Picture Special

Lego Ferrari EnzoSome cars are fiendishly difficult to build from Lego. Volkswagen’s Beetle, Porsche’s 911 and of course, Ferrari’s legendary Enzo. The variety of odd shapes in the Enzo’s carbon fibre bodywork make it a tricky thing to recreate from right-angled plastic, and – to our eyes – far from the prettiest Ferrari ever made. But it is a deeply impressive supercar, and one that deserves an impressive Lego model to match. Nathanael L thought so too, and so took over 18 months and four iterations to create his Ferrari Enzo model.

Lego Ferrari EnzoNathanael’s Model Team recreation replicates the Enzo’s bodywork almost perfectly, and he’s also allowed the bonnet, butterfly doors and clam-shell engine cover to open – something that makes our brains hurt just thinking about all the hinges and angles involved.

There’s an extensive gallery of images available at Nathanael’s Flickr photostream, plus an accompanying MOCpage – simply click the links to see more of the how this incredible Lego Enzo was made.

Lego Enzo Ferrari

We kick off the new year in style with an incredible supercar; Sariel‘s new Technic Ferrari Enzo. His latest work features Power Functions remote control drive and steering, a lifelike V12 engine, fully independent suspension, pneumatically opening doors and a remotely controlled 4-speed gearbox. We certainly can’t do all that justice here, so view the video below and then take a trip to Sariel’s MOCpage to see all the photos.

Ferrari FXX

Like the official LEGO set, only better : )

LEGO’s Ferrari sets are things of beauty, so it’s always impressive when someone makes their own version that comprehensively trumps the ones in the shops. The Lego Car Blog Elves found this stunning FXX on MOCpages, where you can let Ryan Link know he should be working for LEGO themselves.
