It’s time for something rather special here at The Lego Car Blog; this is Bricksonwheels’ phenomenal Lancia Martini Historic Rally Team, formed of a a ’92 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo, an ’85 Lancia 037, and – proving Martini’s racing livery can make literally anything cool – a Fiat Ducato van, complete with tools, spares, and equipment. And each is amongst the finest examples of Lego model-making that you will ever see.
With expertly recreated liveries courtesy of fellow previous bloggee JaapTechnic, Bricksonwheel‘s creations are near perfect replicas of the stars of Lancia’s greatest era. And a Fiat van, but that’s a near perfect replica too.
Each model is built from around 2,000 pieces and includes fully detailed suspension, engine and interior, with every aspect constructed with mind-bending attention to detail.

Usually a digital builder, Peter has recreated Porsche’s Martini-liveried 918 spider superbly in brick form, with cunning techniques used throughout to capture the iconic colour-scheme. See more via the link above.
Insert (literally) Porsche racing cars for twice the awesome!

Malte has already built the team’s racing cars (along with almost every other Porsche), and they fit snugly in the back via a fully working motorized lift. Continue reading →
