Two Horse Race

Lego Ferrari 488

It looks like this year’s Formula 1 World Championship is slipping way from Ferrari yet again. Assuming Hamilton and Mercedes-AMG wrap up another World Championship at the U.S Grand Prix in Texas later today it leaves the team a decade without a title.

So in commiserations here are two of the company’s finest road-going efforts of recent times, showing that even when performance on track is lacking, Ferrari can still produce a road car of epic ability.

First up (above) is the Ferrari 488 GTB, recreated superbly in LEGO’s Speed Champions style by previous bloggee Peter Blackert aka Lego911. Peter has recently become a published author with a new book that details how to build Lego creations like this one. You can see more of the 488 GTB at Peter’s photostream by clicking the link above, and you can read our interview with him as part of our ‘Become a Pro’ series by clicking this awesome link.

Today’s second modern Ferrari (below) comes from Flickr’s RGB900, who has recreated probably the most stupidly named car of recent times. And we include the Mazda Bongo Friendee in that. The Ferrari La Ferrari may have a ridiculous title but it’s quite a car, and RGB’s Speed Champions version captures the Italian hypercar in expert fashion.

You can see more of the build at RGB’s photostream via the link above, whilst we watch Mercedes-AMG stroll to another F1 World Championship. There’s always next year Ferrari…

Two for Tuesday

Lego Ferrari 599

A pair of Elves returned to TLCB Towers today after each found a Ferrari on their unending search for the web’s best Lego creations. Normally this would initiate Elf-on-Elf violence, but because we’re feeling generous, and because both models are absolutely superb, today’s post is a double and thus each can go away happy (fed).

Lego Ferrari FF

Both creations are the work of Ryan Link, who has an impressive garage of brick-built cars under his belt. These two are his latest, Ferrari’s 599 GTB (red) circa 2006, and their first ever all-wheel-drive car, the 2011 FF (white).

Both cars feature Ferrari’s legendary V12 engine mounted up front, which Ryan has recreated in brick form, along with a pair of fully detailed interiors and beautifully replicated bodywork, complete with opening doors, hood and trunk.

You can see more of both the 599 and FF at Ryan’s Flickr photostream, or at his MOCpages account, where you can also check out his impressive back-catalogue of previous builds.
