Rolled Gold

Let’s get the obvious bit out of the way. Those are not official LEGO wheels. But they are excellent. And the model riding atop them is even more so.

This spectacular Technic Lamborghini Countach LP500s is the work of Diego Auguanno, as presented by Polo-Freak of Brickshelf, and it’s about as accurate a Lego Lamborghini as we’ve ever seen.

Diego’s incredible creation utilises Technic panels, System bricks, and those custom golden wheels to beautifully replicate the real ’80s supercar, including a brick-built replica of the Countach’s V12 engine and its signature scissor doors.

Over thirty high quality images can be found at Polo’s ‘Lamborghini Countach LP500S’ Brickshelf album (plus you can buy building instructions at the designer Diego’s Facebook page) and you can take a look at all of this rolled gold via the links above.

The Best Lego Car Ever?

Admittedly, ‘Best Car Ever!’ (or Best Car Evarr!!11!) is a phrase banded around a lot on the interweb, but this MOC could well be it. The incredible studs-up giant in the picture above took three years to design digitally, and another two to build. Polo-Freak is the orchestrator behind this truly epic project, and such is its scale it has generated its own Special Themes thread over on Eurobricks.

The Lamborghini Countach was actually quite a poor car, but that didn’t stop it becoming the poster car of the late ’70s to early ’80s, and in 3D form it’s even more impressive. Polo-Freak has recreated every Bertone-designed detail, from the teledial alloys to the tip of the huge rear wing. See the full gallery of pictures on Eurobricks at the aforementioned link.
