The current Eurobricks ‘small car’ competition is delivering our Elves some brilliant Technic creations. This is one of their favourites, because… well, it’s an orange Lamborghini with a racing stripe down the middle of it.
More for our benefit, it’s also got some neat working features squeezed inside it, including a miniature V10 engine driven by the rear wheels, functioning steering via a ‘Hand of God’ mechanism, plus opening doors and engine cover.
The current Lexus tagline might be pure marketing waffle, but it does link nicely to today’s creation. This is Lasse D’s stunning Lexus LFA, a model that first appeared here back in 2017. Built as a commissioned piece for Toyota Motor Europe, Lasse has refined his design (as shown by the white version below) and has now made instructions available, so you can build Japan’s amazing supercar for yourself. Head to Eurobricks via this link to see more images, a video of Lasse’s commissioned project, and to find that all important link to instructions!
First featured here a year ago, Jeroen Ottens’ beautiful Technic interpretation of Marco Van Overbeeke’s spectacular design concept had us all wishing the car was real. It still isn’t, but Jeroen has refined his creation adding these stunning new images to his ‘Il Toro Azzurro’ album. The name may have changed but the car is if anything even more gorgeous to look at, with Jeroen’s model including four-wheel steering, a V10 engine, working gearbox, and independent suspension. There’s more to see of both the original and new images at Jeroen’s ‘Il Torro Azzurro’ album on Flickr – click the link to take a look.
It’s nearly Halloween!* The unique time of year when kids can pressure the elderly into giving them chocolate, girls can make literally any outfit sexy, and we find a tenuous link between the season of spookiness and an almost completely unrelated Lego model…
This is an almost completely unrelated Lego model. Created by Master MOCer and Technic building legend Paul Boratko (aka Crowkillers) it’s called the ‘Copia’ and has been built in homage to the Swedish rock band ‘Ghost’, of whom we have never heard but who have enabled this year’s tenuous Halloween link.
With all-wheel-drive, working steering, a mid-mounted V10 engine, D-N-R gearbox with functioning steering wheel paddles, independent suspension, and opening doors, hood and engine cover, Crowkillers’ latest creation checks every Technic ‘Supercar’ box and a few more too. Although it does have very little to do with Halloween (and Swedish rock bands as far as we can tell).
Aaaand we’re back with car! And what a car. This is a Lamborghini Huracan Performante, the track-focussed, more powerful, lighter weight version of the V10 supercar.
This stunning Technic recreation of the Performante comes from newcomer Jerry LEGO Creations who has not only captured the Huracan’s visuals brilliantly in Technic form, there’s a working V10 engine driven by all four wheels, all-wheel suspension with anti-rollbars, working steering, opening doors and hood, and a detailed interior too.
A proper Technic Supercar then, and there’s more to see of Jerry’s spellbinding build at the Eurobricks forum. Click the link above to make the jump.
Nope, us neither, but apparently the Silvestros is a concept design by freelance automotive designer Marco van Overbeeke who – it turns out – is one seriously talented guy.
So too is previous bloggee Jeroen Ottens, who has reimagined Marco’s design in Technic form to create the stunning supercar you see here. A V10 engine lives up front, there’s a working transmission, all-wheel suspension, and functioning steering too.
You can see all the images of Jeroen’s brilliant model at his photostream via the second link, and you can check out more of Marco van Overbeeke’s amazing automotive designs via the first.
This is the ‘Ultimatum GTR V10’, it was suggested to us by a reader, and it comes from Pvdb of Eurobricks. It is – as you can see – a very pretty thing, and draws upon a number of modern supercars for inspiration. However it’s what is underneath the sleek bodywork that’s of most note.
The usual Technic Supercar features are all present; steering, suspension, a piston engine (in this case a V10) and a gearbox. A really good gearbox…
Pvdb’s supercar aims to address the shortcomings of the 42056 set with his own sequential gearbox, with five accurately spaced ratios, plus neutral and reverse, a compact design, and control via a racing-style sequential gear lever.
The result looks miles better than LEGO’s own effort and you can check it out for yourself via Eurobricks at the link above, plus you can watch the transmission in action and build your own version of the Ultimatum GTR thanks to the instructions that have been made available on Rebrickable.
It’s an orange Smartie for you guys! Suggested by a reader, much to the annoyance of the Elves, TLCB Master MOCer Paul Boratko aka Crowkillers is back with another amazing Technic supercar. Entitled ‘Constrictor’, Crowkillers’ latest build wraps a V10 engine, independent suspension, working steering with Ackerman geometry and 4-speed transmission in a stunning orange body. See those features in action and read more about the build via the Eurobricks forum – Click here to take a look.
*’One-Eyed Python’ and ‘Trouser Snake’ versions also available.
Lexus LFA’s are like buses. You wait ages for one and then two come along at once. That’s where the similarity stops though.
As per the other LFA post earlier this month a well-known presenter of a well-known motoring TV show (and its anonymous driver) claim that the Lexus LFA is the best car in the world. We wouldn’t go that far, but it is quite a thing. Spun from carbon using one of only two carbon-fibre looms in existence and powered by a sonorous F1-inspired V10 the LFA can lay claim to being one of the most unique supercars ever made.
This superb Model Team replica of Japan’s iconic supercar comes from Noah L (aka Lego Builders) and there’s more to see of the build on both Flickr and MOCpages – click the links for all the images.
Or so claimed Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson and the Stig. The Lexus LFA wowed the motoring world when it arrived in 2010. Over a decade in the making and built using one of only two carbon-fibre spinning looms in existence the V10-engined supercar shot Lexus into the automotive premier league.
Just 500 units were manufactured in a two year production run and despite a base price of nearly $400,000 Lexus made a loss on every single one. You’ll need a lot more than $400,000 to get hold of one now though.
But why such high praise? The LFA was built celebrate Toyota’s F1 success which never came, and it wasn’t the fastest, nor the best handling, nor the best looking supercar of its time. One reason; noise. If you’ve never heard an LFA, click here and turn the volume up!
Previous bloggee gtahelper‘s Lego Lexus LFA may not be able to recreate the real LFA’s incredible sound, but in every other regard it’s one of the most remarkably accurate replicas that our Elves have ever brought back to the office. In fact we’re astonished that such a stunning recreation of a pretty tricky car can be made at this scale at all.
A whole gallery of images of gtahelper’s Lexus LFA is available to view on Brickshelf, where there’s even a link to building instructions so that you can create your own. Click the link above to make the jump to check out the best model of the best car in the world.
LEGO’s 42056 Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS set did not fair well here under the Reviewer’s gaze. Over-priced and under-engineered, 42056 is – in that regard at least – quite un-Porsche-like. However the Lego Community have been taking their hands to the GT3 RS to see if they can do better. This is the latest 42056 B-Model effort to come our way, and it looks tremendous.
Built by MOCpages’ Kasper Hansen, this Audi R8 V10 Plus almost exclusively uses parts from the Porsche 911 GT3 RS set, apart from the 3D-printed wheels (which are some of the most accurate replicas of the wheels from a real car that we’ve ever seen).
Kasper’s R8 also features a V10 engine, steering, suspension, paddle-shift gearbox (likely lifted straight from the official set), plus opening doors, hood and engine cover. There’s more to see of Kasper’s creation over on MOCpages – click the link above to make the jump – and if you’d like to dismantle your own 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS to have a go at your own B-Model, here’s one fast way to do it…
The Lego Car Blog Archives are a scary place. Dark, forbidding, and – rumour has it – stalked by a band of long-feral Elves, it’s a part of TLCB Towers that this writer tries to avoid.
Needs must though, as we were sure that this spectacular Technic Porsche Carrera GT had appeared here before. It turns out that it has, but builder Artemy Zotov has newly rebuilt his Porsche in an updated black colour scheme to coincide with the release of the model’s building instructions.
Featuring a V10 engine, working steering and suspension, and a rising and retracting rear spoiler, Artemy’s Carrera GT is one of the finest Technic Supercars of recent times. You can check out the full details of the build at Artemy’s MOCpage, where you can now find a link to the model’s building instructions so that you can create your own!
The Lego Car Blog favourite Crowkillers is back, and this time he’s not working alone – but he hasn’t teamed up with another builder as you might expect. Instead Crowkillers has collaborated with the legendary Count’s Kustoms hot rod shop from the History Channel’s ‘Counting Cars’ TV show in order to create a pair of unique creations.
Above viewers of the show will recognise Count’s 1956 Chevrolet truck, complete with custom flame decals, whilst below is a model that some of our readers may recognise from a previous post.
Based on his ‘Assassin’ Technic Supercar, Crowkiller’s latest creation has been custom-painted by Count’s Kustoms’ own Ryan Evans and you can own it!
This amazing one-off Technic Supercar is being auctioned for charity to raise money for a little boy with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, and it also includes two customised mini-figures from the TV show. You can read more about the model via Eurobricks, and if you’d like to see more of this unique collaboration and bid for your chance to own it you can do so by clicking on the giant letters below.
This incredible replica of Porsche’s mighty 2005 V10 supercar was discovered by one of our Elves on Eurobricks today. It’s the work of Artemy Zotov, and it’s one of the finest Technic Supercars that this site has ever featured.
Artemy’s Carrera GT is a near-perfect one tenth scale replica of one of Porsche’s most ambitious vehicles and it features a wealth of superbly engineered mechanical functions, including the Carrera’s unique V10 engine, all-wheel independent suspension, working steering, opening hood, doors and engine cover, and the Porsche’s clever rising and retracting rear spoiler.
There’s more of this stunning build to see at the Eurobricks discussion forum (and probably Flickr, MOCpages and Brickshelf too in the near future, but we’re quite early featuring this creation). Click this link to check out one of the finest Technic Supercars you’re likely to see his year.
This interesting looking Technic Supercar comes from Eurobrick’s Anto. Taking inspiration from LEGO’s official Supercars from the ’90s there’s not a Power Functions motor in (or out of) sight, and instead old-fashioned mechanical goodness abounds. Working steering, independent suspension, opening doors, hood and trunk and a V10 engine and gearbox are all included, and you can read the full details at the link above.
