Lo lo lo lo Lola

A song about gender fluidity way ahead of its time, and also a seriously cool British race engineering firm that built pretty much everything from the 1960s all the way up to 2012, and whose remnants now form much of the Haas Formula 1 team. This was one of their later creations, the Lola-Aston Martin B09/60 LMP1 endurance racer from 2008.

This spectacular Technic recreation of the mad Le Mans prototype comes from Leviathan / Nico Lego of Flickr, and it’s a properly brilliant Technic Supercar. With a working V12 engine, double clutch gearbox, in-board pushrod suspension, working steering, and superb swooping bodywork it’s a model that’s well worth a closer look. Around thirty high-quality images are available to view at Leviathan’s Aston Martin Lola LMP1 Flickr album – click the link above to make the jump.

Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon

Lego RC Sportcar Concept

It’s sunny here at TLCB Towers and that makes both us and the Elves a bit dozy. Luckily Chris Elliott, one of our Guest Bloggers, joins us to pen today’s post;

Channeling his inner European luxury car designer, Tobias Munzert brings us this gorgeous remote-controlled concept car in stunning red with wide silver rims à la Ferrari. Utilizing both System and Technic parts this model is creatively constructed and wonderful to look at from all angles. You can check out more pictures of this beauty (in addition to more of Mr. Munzert’s work) on his Flickr photostream here, or via his MOCpages account.
