This incredible creation comes from car-building legend, TLCB Master MOCer, and all-round nice guy Firas Abu-Jaber. It is of course the bewitching Ferrari Testarossa.
Firas makes his return to TLCB with several versions of the iconic Italian super car, including the original 1980s incarnation, the later 512 TR, and a spider variant.
The Testarossa launched in the mid-80s with a mid-mounted 4.9 litre flat-12 engine (necessitating the car’s enormous signature side vents), and over 10,000 were built across all variants until production ceased around a decade later, making it one of Ferrari’s all-time best selling models.
Fires Abu-Jaber’s stunning replicas of the quintessential Ferrari recreate every detail in breathtaking realism, and he’s thrown in some unique building techniques too, including the ingenious use of LEGO magnets to attach the rear bodywork and engine – a technique we expect to see used throughout the online community before long.
There’s a huge gallery of images available to view, including ‘how-to’ shots of that cunning magnetism, on both MOCpages and Flickr – click the links to see all the photos, plus you can read Firas’ interview here at TLCB by clicking here.
