Rim Job

This is a Porsche 918 Spyder, a mid-2010s plug-in hybrid hypercar powered by the combination of a 4.6 litre V8 and two electric motors for a total output of 875bhp. And 12 miles of electric range. Which we suspect most 918 owners use about as much as the Brothers Brick do the gym.

Pointless green virtue signalling aside, the Porsche 918 is a seriously impressive car, as is this superb Model Team recreation by Flickr’s 3D supercarBricks, who has captured the 918 brilliantly in brick from.

3D’s 918 model includes an opening front trunk, removable engine cover, and some excellent 3D-printed rims, which accurately portray the items fitted to the real car and further enhance the model’s realism.

A wealth of imagery is available to view, and you can take a closer look at the both 918 and the 3D-printed rims upon which it rolls via the link in the text above.

Expensive Mistake

Lego Ferrari 250 GT California

This is a Ferrari 250 GT California, one of the most valuable cars ever made (currently fetching around $20million), and this is one crashing backwards over a cliff.

Don’t worry, it wasn’t a real GT California used in ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’, and you can recreate the famous scene with your own plastic replica thanks to Flickr’s Peter Blackert, who has constructed the famous car beautifully in brick form.

Click the link above to see the full gallery, and where you’ll also find a link to Peter’s new book which explains how to build a Ferrari 250 GT California model yourself.

Model T Spyder

Lego Model T Spider

MagicTubaPixie’s ‘Arachnid’. We’ll overlook the leg count because it’s so cool.

The ‘other’ Spyder. This one doesn’t have a folding roof, but it does have six spindly legs for off-roading/parallel parking/scaring pedestrians. Built by the possibly slightly unhinged MagicTubaPixie, you can see more on Brickshelf.

Rolands Kirpis is one of those annoying people who can build any car, no matter how difficult they may seem. His latest is Porsche’s new 918 Spyder. Click here to be whisked as if by magic to his Flickr stream.
