Buy This Pagani Huayra!

We get asked a few particular questions more than any others here at The Lego Car Blog. ‘Will you blog my [insert creation]?’ (no), ‘Can I have instructions?’ (probably not), and ‘Where can I buy this?’.

As we’re here to publicise people’s own builds, the answer is usually ‘sorry, you can’t’. But not today, because you really can buy this one.

This incredible car is a Pagani Huayra, as featured here a few weeks ago. It was designed by Technic-building legend Jeroen Ottens as a gift to another builder, an amazing man by the name of Grum64.

Mr. Grum was involved in a motorcycle accident aged 19 in which he broke his neck, paralysing him from the chest down. Despite having no hand movement Grum builds with LEGO, using his teeth to construct sets over the course of many weeks which is – to all of us here at TLCB – a simply mind-blowing achievement.

Grum decided that rather than accepting Jeroen’s spectacular model for himself, that they would auction it for charity – in particular the amazing charity Fairy Bricks which provides LEGO sets to sick children in hospital and hospices. In fact Fairy Bricks provide around £5,000-worth of LEGO every single month to brighten the lives of children who may feel a very long way from home.

From April 19th Jeroen’s beautiful Pagani Huayra Technic Supercar will be listed on the auction site catawiki, where you can bid to own this stunning one-off creation (which features an 8-speed sequential gearbox, all-wheel cantilevered suspension, steering, active aero, a V12 engine, custom chrome and much, much more).

Not only that but Pagani have donated two huge Huayra computer blueprint drawings signed by Horacio Pagani himself to the auction, so the winning bid will receive a piece of hypercar history as well as one of the finest Technic Supercars ever built.

You can read full details of the build (and the story behind it) and Jeroen’s website, and you can see our original post of his superb Pagani Huayra by clicking here.

The Catawiki auction for Fairy Bricks commences on April 19th and remains open until April 24th, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Fairy Bricks Charity.

Purchase a Pagani

Lego Technic Pagani Huayra

This is a Pagani Huayra, one of the fastest, most aerodynamically clever, exclusive and expensive cars ever to reach production. Unobtainable then, but not this one. This is Jeroen Ottens’ incredible Technic recreation of the Pagani hypercar, and you could own it as the model is due to be auctioned for charity.

With working cantilever suspension, gull-wing doors, steering, an eight-speed sequential gearbox, highly detailed V12 engine, and even the Huayra’s active aerodynamics, Jeroen’s Technic Supercar is one of the most technically advanced yet. Just like the real car.

There are more images to see at Jeroen’s Pagani Huayra Flickr album by clicking here, where you can also find details on the charity action date and a link to the complete build specs.

Pagani Huayra – Picture Special

Lego Technic Pagani Huayra Sariel

It’s time for something special. Really special. Poland’s Paul Kmiec, better known as Sariel, has been wowing the online Lego community for years. He’s a published Lego author and a veteran of this site, with a huge range of diverse Technic machinery published here over the years. His latest creation, in construction for months, reached TLCB yesterday, and we may only be a few weeks in but 2017 will have to be a pretty incredible year to beat it. This is Sariel’s fully remote controlled Technic Pagani Huayra…

Lego Technic Pagani Huayra Sariel

Built in 1:8 scale Sariel’s Huayra is a perfect Technic replica of the ultra-rare Italian hypercar. The bodywork, constructed from LEGO’s Technic panels, flex tubing and lift-arms, is a work of art, but it’s what’s underneath it that is truly remarkable.

A remote control drive train, controlled by a third-party SBrick bluetooth module, powers the Huayra, with a remotely operable two-speed gearbox and fully independent adjustable suspension included too. There are opening doors, and functioning turn signals, reversing and brake lights – all engaged automatically when the Huayra turns, reverses or decelerates.

Lego Technic Pagani Huayra Sariel

Yes, decelerates – because Sariel’s Pagani features remotely operated working pneumatic brakes and the Huayra’s trick active aerodynamics, including the front and rear spoilers deployed on each side when cornering and the rear-mounted airbrake used during heavy deceleration.

The whole set-up is a delight to watch and you can do so via the beautifully shot video below, plus you can see the full gallery of exquisite imagery via Sariel’s photostream – click here to view one of the finest Technic Supercars ever built.

Lego Pagani Huayra

The builder of this fantastically complicated looking Pagani Huayra has been suggested to us numerous times over the past few months and never quite made the grade. But perseverance pays, and Gerald Cacas has repeatedly refined his Model Team recreation of the famous supercar to make his debut appearance here. You can see more of his Huayra at his Flickr photostream – click the link above to make the jump.

Pagani Huayra Picture Special

Lego Technic Pagani Huayra

Here at TLCB we regularly mock the efforts of ambitious but rubbish millionaires who promise the arrival of a new Bugatti-beating supercar every other month. Most such companies never start production, and the few that do go bankrupt within weeks after delivering the square root of F-all. All that is, except one…

Pagani was founded in 1992 by Argentinian-Italian ex-Lamborghini engineer Horacio Pagani. Seven years later the company’s first supercar reached production, via a partnership with Mercedes-Benz, and it quickly became the new poster car of eight year olds everywhere and cemented Pagani’s membership into the premier league of supercar makers.

Fast forward thirteen years to 2012 and it was time for the risky second album. Pagani responded by launching the incredible Huayra hypercar, a car capable of pulling over 1.6 lateral G at 230mph.

Lego Pagani Supercar

A car as astonishing as the Huayra deserves an astonishing Technic Supercar build, and today’s post sure meets that criteria. Much like the Pagani company the builder of this Technic recreation is a new entrant into the premier league of supercar builders, having only been building for a few years, but with this build Francisco Hartley has made sure he’s going to get noticed.

Underneath the remarkably accurate bodywork Francisco has engineered a working V12 engine, 6-speed gearbox with clutch, independent suspension, damped gull-wing doors and – most impressively of all – the Huayra’s ingenious active aerodynamics.

Lego Technic PaganiAll of the working features are mechanical, there’s not a Power Functions motor or pneumatic cylinder anywhere, and all are exquisitely engineered. You can see all the details of this beautiful Technic supercar on MOCpages at the link in the text above, plus you can see the features in action via the slick video below. Welcome to the premier league Francisco!
