Lego Technic Supercar RC

Fictional supercars rarely appear here at TLCB because they’re almost universally crap. However, previous bloggee Rage Hobbit has shattered our preconceptions with his superb looking ‘Wutzwerg’ Technic Supercar. It might sound like a German beer but Rage’s home-brewed design is a rather lovely thing to behold, and it’s backed up by some solid Technic engineering too, including full RC drive and steering, double-wishbone indecent suspension, a four speed gearbox and  a V10 piston engine. You can read all the details and watch a video of the Wutzwerg in action on either MOCpages or Eurobricks – click the links for more.

Vorsprung Durch Technik

Lego Technic Audi R8 V10

This brilliant Audi R8 V10 was uncovered by one of our Elves on Eurobricks today. Built by, er… Fanylover, it features good old fashioned mechanical Technic engineering (no Power Functions motors or infrared receivers here), including all-wheel-drive, a working V10 piston engine, double-wishbone independent suspension, working steering, opening and locking doors, and a retractable rear spoiler.

Havin’ a Tug

Lego technic Airport Tug

This enormous airport tug has been built by filsawgood of Eurobricks, and it’s something pretty special. Not only does it look – for a tug at least – rather good, it features a wealth of ingenious Technic engineering underneath, all operated by LEGO’s excellent Power Functions remote control system.

Lego Technic Remote Control Chassis

There’s all-wheel-drive powered by two XL motors, independent all-wheel-steering controlled by two servos, a motorised elevating cabin, powered chassis jacks, a mid-mounted V10 piston engine, three IR receivers and two battery boxes. It’s an awesome bit of kit well worth your click, and you can see all the images and read the full details of the build at the Eurobricks discussion forum via the link above.

Technic Trofeo

Lego Technic Lamborghini Super Trofeo Stradale

Ah, special editions. If there’s one way to sell something it’s to make people think that what they’re getting is unique. From humble hatchbacks with new seat upholstery and a sticker stuck on the back to exotic supercars with… er, new seat upholstery and sticker stuck on the back, all manufacturers are at it.

This is one of Lamborghini’s efforts, designed to help shift the lovely but ageing Gallardo in the run up to its replacement. The Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale was launched in 2011, limited to a run of only 150 units, and Artery Zotov has just reduced the exclusivity a bit.

His beautiful Technic replica of the rare bull comes with remote controlled all-wheel-drive and steering, independent double-wishbone suspension and a Technic version of the Lamborghini’s famous V10 engine.

‘Misstress’ Picture Special

Lego Technic Mistress Supercar

This bewitchingly beautiful Technic supercar was discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr. It’s been built by previous bloggee Jeroen Ottens and – as you can see – it’s a work of art. The beauty of ‘Misstress’ is more than skin deep too; underneath the deliciously curvaceous bodywork is a mid-mounted V10 engine, working steering and fully independent double-wishbone suspension.

Orange Crush

Lego Audi R8 V10

Audi recently revealed their new R8 supercar at the Geneva Motor Show, and in typical Audi fashion it looks almost exactly the same as the current one. Which incidentally looks very much like this.

It’s the latest build from Technic genius Sariel, who’s gone all Model-Teamy on the outside this time, and yet he’s managed to keep the remarkable Technic engineering for which he’s known intact underneath.

Sariel’s bright orange R8 features remote control drive, steering, a four-speed gearbox, independent suspension, LED lights, damped-opening doors, and of course, the huge Lamborghini-sourced V10 engine (which almost fits too).

There’s lots more to see on MOCpages via the link above (including a video of all the working functions), and you can read our interview with Sariel by clicking here.
