Maranello Magnum

Lego Ferarri 308 GTS

This is a Ferrari 308 GTS, made (more) famous by its continued appearance in 1980s Hawaii-based drama ‘Magnum PI’, and built from 1975 in Maranello Italy before being replaced a decade later by the 328.

Designed by Pininfarina the 308 also has the claim of being the slowest Ferrari ever made, as a 2 litre version (known as the 208) was produced to dodge a tax in Italy that applied to cars over 2000cc. Strangely the 208 was still a V8, just a pointlessly small one, and thankfully ‘Magnum PI’s Thomas Magnum got the proper 2.9 litre 240bhp version.

This excellent recreation of Magnum’s mid-’80s Ferrari 308 GTS comes from Flickr’s Peter Blackert aka Lego911 and there’s more to see at his photostream via the link.

Acceptable in the ’80s

Lego Movie CarsThis is about as much epic as we can fit in one post here at The Lego Car Blog! Stephan Sander on MOCpages has recreated the coolest cars from the coolest shows of the 1980s, and every one is as good as anything we’ve blogged here to date. Built in LEGO’s own ‘Miniland’ style each vehicle even includes the lead characters from the relevant TV show. See if you can identify them all! Oh, and check out Stephan’s website here – where there’s even more ’80s automotive goodness available.
