Ferrari Fans, Look Away…

If you’re a fan of Ferraris, you might want to look away now.

This is the ‘F8 Dragster’, built by ianying616 of Flickr, and underneath it was once the new 76895 Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo set. It isn’t any more though, having been modified by, well… possibly TLCB Elves judging by the stripes, ridiculous engine, and unhinged bodywork. Or Mansory of course.

Fortunately – and unlike Mansory’s abominations – ianying’s creation is only in the brick, and as such we, ahem… quite like it. But we’re basically six year olds here, so that’s not a surprise.

If you’re six too, a TLCB Elf, or if you work for Mansory, you can check out more of ianying’s ‘F8 Dragster’ on Flickr – take a look via the link above.

76895 Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo | Set preview

No sooner had we written yesterday’s post previewing the awesome new 76897 Audi Sport quattro S1 set than another Elf stumbled back into TLCB Towers following its ‘adventure’ in LEGO’s HQ.

This is its find, the new 76895 Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo.

The 2020 Speed Champions line-up wouldn’t be complete without a new Ferrari set, and this really is a new Ferrari set, being the Italian supercar manufacturer’s latest model which was only revealed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.

Like yesterday’s Audi, the new Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo set applies LEGO’s new 8-wide scale to allow for a little more realism and for two mini-figures to sit side-by-side. 76895 only includes one, and interestingly it’s a racing driver despite the F8 being a road car, but you can always add a second should you wish.

The F8’s design has been well replicated in Lego form, albeit with a few stickers helping with the shape of the cockpit, and includes 275 pieces for an anticipated $20 price tag. Aimed at ages 7+ we think 76895 looks rather good and will likely continue the success of Lego’s Ferrari Speed Champions partnership, however we’d still take the Audi…
