Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA | Picture Special

This is an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA, and we don’t think we’ve ever wanted a car more.

Built by Zeta Racing, this incredible recreation of Alfa Romeo’s brilliant ’60s sports saloon has jumped right to the top of the list for Best Creation of 2021, with a depth of engineering that is amongst the most advanced that this site has ever featured.

Inside the fantastically well-executed exterior, which captures the Giulia Sprint GTA in Technic form with almost unbelievable realism, is one of the finest Technic Supercar chassis yet built.

Alongside all-wheel suspension and a working 4-cylinder engine, Zeta’s model includes a Power Functions drivetrain that not only delivers remote control drive and steering, but also a motorised sequential gearbox and – amazingly – working brakes with callipers that genuinely squeeze the discs when activated via an on-board pneumatic compressor.

It’s a phenomenal piece of engineering, wrapped in one of the most brilliant Technic bodies we’ve ever seen, which also includes beautifully accurate period-correct decals, and a wonderfully detailed interior too.

The Other GTA

The Lego Car Blog Elves aren’t allowed to play Grand Theft Auto. Having a tendency to enact whatever it is they’ve most recently seen, playing a game based upon wanton destruction would only add to their already violent disposition, and we have enough tidying up to do already.

Fortunately today’s GTA has nothing to do with that long-running – and admittedly very good fun – video game, but rather this brilliant Speed Champions style Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, as built by TLCB debutant PleaseYesPlease. Neat decals and a trademark yellow nose make Please’s GTA a properly good homage to the original ’60s sports car, and there’s more to see of their Giulia GTA on Flickr.

Giulia GTA

This ridiculously pretty model of a ridiculously pretty car comes from Jonathan Elliott of Flickr. It’s an Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, built between 1965 and ’69 and fitted with Alfa Romeo’s advanced twin-cam 1600cc engine and aluminium bodywork. This cleverness made the GTA a brilliant racer, but even if it wasn’t we’d still want one because look at it! See more of Jonathan’s 6-wide recreation of Alfa Romeo’s high-point at the link above.

Beach Bum

Lego Beach Buggy GTA

Flickr’s Lego Junkie has recreated the ‘Bifta’ beach buggy found in Grand Theft Auto V. With working suspension and a removable body, you can see more at the link. Prostitute in the passenger seat and AK47 on the dashboard optional.

Lego Technic Dune Buggy

Worth a trip into the desert for…

If you played Rockstar’s famous 2004 release GTA San Andreas you may recognise this – at least if you were as brilliant at the game as I was ; )   Hidden in the desert and best accessed by plane, a monster dune buggy lay waiting. Pipasseyoyo on Brickshelf has built this version, complete with a V4 piston engine, all round independent suspension, steering, and a three-speed linear gearbox. Hopefully it’s not as easy to roll over as the virtual version, because my gaming-brilliance usually didn’t extend to getting the buggy back to civilization in one piece, and I invariably ended up with a very long walk…
