Toyota TS030

Hybrids, so long a favourite of tree hugging hippy types, are starting to get cool. Porsche’s 918, Ferrari’s LaFerrari, McLaren’s P1 and modern Formula 1 cars are changing the perception of what a hybrid can do. Toyota, one of the first to make hybrid technology work in the real world, took their TS030 hybrid racer to Le Mans this year, finishing second to a hybrid Audi.

Brought to our attention via the Submission Suggestions page, Lego Builder Jr. has recreated the podium scoring Toyota on MOCpages and Flickr in its early red and white livery. See more via the links above, and if you’re still in doubt that hybrid can be cool, take a listen to this.
