– A 3 cylinder fake engine
– Opening bonnet, trunk and doors
– Adjustable seats
– Working steeringwheel

The model is very sturdy and can be handled from any angle.

The model is packed with half stud offsets to be able to capture the lines of the original car despite the smaller size.

Aston Martin DB11

Hi,

Here is a model I made on my own account. The new Aston Martin DB11:

Aston Martin DB11

It is build in a bigger scale than my other supercars, using the LEGO 42056 Porsche wheels. The model is filled with functions:

  • Independent suspension on all wheels
  • Steering with functional steeringwheel and HoG in the back
  • Swiveling frontlights (right lamp turns right when steering right, left light turns left when steering left)
  • LED lights front and rear
  • Sequential gearbox operated with paddles next to the steering wheel and HoG in the rear. It is an 8D+N+R gearbox (ie eight speeds forward, one reverse and one neutral).
  • Highly detailed V12 fake engine
  • Adjustable front chairs (forward, backward and tilting backrest)
  • Aerobrake in the back coupled to the gearbox
  • Opening doors, bonnet and tail

The model is remote controlled with the LEGO Power function system. It has four remote controlled functions:

  1. Drive (with a working steeringwheel as well)
  2. Steering
  3. The rear spoiler
  4. The convertible roof

It also features indepedent suspension on all wheels and buttefly doors.

Shaping the front was one of the bigger challenges in the styling. Let me know what you think of it.

This is a replica of the iconic Ferrari 308 GTSi. My client provided photos of his real life version of this car so that I could replicate it with all details (red grilles above the front wheels, extra lower lip below the bumper, tan leather interior, etc.).

It has the following features:
– Independent suspension on all wheels with anti-roll bars
– Steering with proper geometry (ackerman, kingpin inclination, camber, etc.)
– pop-up headlights (operated with a switch in the dashboard)
– adjustable seats (forward/backwards + recline forward/backwards)

Interior
Ferrari 308 GTSi

– 3+R manual gearbox
– detailed V8 engine
– openable hood (to access the spare tire)
– openable doors
– openable trunk
– detailed interior

 

 

The model was designed with an exclusivity agreement so no instructions will be made available.

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

Alfa Romeo 4C Spider

The inspiration for this model came from a colleague of mine who purchased the Alfa Romeo 4C. I searched the internet for pictures of his car and then I found this spider version in gorgeous white with Italian race stripes. For some reason I can’t phantom now I thought it a good idea to make the car fully remote controlled.

The Alfa Romeo 4C spider has the following features:
– Independent suspension on all wheels
– Openable hood/hatch/doorsar4c-007_
– V4 fake engine
And the following functions are remote controlled:
– Drive
– Steering
– 4 speed sequential gearbox
– Seats forward/backwards
– Seatrest recline forwards/backwards

I have made instructions for this model that are available for free (but be warned that this model uses a lot of rare parts). On the building instruction page you can order the instructions.

Here is a video which shows all the functions.

The BMW 328 Hommage was a car I accidently stumbled upon when browsing the internet. The moment I saw the car I realized I wanted to replicate it in Lego. The asymmetric interior design, the huge bonnet and the striking crossed front lights are defining features of this car.

100_9111The BMW328 Hommage has the following features:
– Independent suspension on all wheels
– Working steering with proper steering geometry (Ackerman, kingpin inclination, etc.)
– A sequential 4D+N+R gearbox that is operated with one gearshifter
– Openable hood to reveal the 6 cilinder engine

 

I have made instructions for this model that are available for 11 euros. On the building instruction page you can order the instructions.
