We all, undoubtedly, would love to have a sports car in our garage, regardless of what other cars we may prefer to drive. Call them flashy, loud, uncomfortable, or expensive – but if we don’t have one, it’s mostly because they’re impractical when it comes to purchasing and maintenance costs. We may not even have that big a garage to house our daily driver, and an additional sports car bought just for the heck of it.
So what is the next best thing that we can do? How about a Lego sports car, which we may not be able to drive or keep in the garage, but will still provide us with a little bit of thrill, and some hours of fun in assembling it. So here go 15 sick photos of Lego-sized sports cars that will make you want to run to the nearest toy store to get one…
15Porsche 911 RSR: For Some Serious Endurance Racing
The Porsche 911 RSR is not for the faint-hearted, and since its an exclusive GT racer, it’s not for the strong-hearted non-racer either. So make do with a Lego which is a darn sight cheaper but, being a Lego Technic set, comes with enough workable parts to keep you entertained. Namely, an open, peer-able rear differential and a six-cylinder flat-six engine with some amazing detail and working suspension components.
14McLaren 720S: Street Race Car For The Brave
It’s a McLaren, people, and we doubt this is the kind of sports car any of us normally dream about, given their limited editions and very exclusive affordability. Let a Lego version suffice while we scrimp and scrounge to get enough to buy one, or at least one of its tires. Meanwhile, the kit comes with a designer and a desk, and if you put the helmet on, the designer then becomes the race car driver, Bruce McLaren.
13Aston Martin DB5: The Bond Car
Who doesn’t have Aston Martin themed dreams, considering this is the car James Bond drives in his escapades? Pictured against a real-time Aston Martin DB5, the Lego version looks cute as a button and comes with several secret weapons like revolving license plates, an ejector seat, and guns behind the headlights. Now, if it only came with a Bond girl…
12Porsche 911 RSR, 911 Turbo 3.0: Two For One
Few of us can afford one Porsche, let alone two of them in our lifetimes. So, whether you can have one or not, you can have the Lego Porsche Duo, with two little drivers, one pit crew mini-figure, and a little speedway replete with a checked flag. So what if these don’t come with movable parts, they are still the cutest Porsches ever.
11Ford GT & Ford GT40: The Winning Duo
While some of us rare and rich folks were able to get our hands on the Ford GT, none of us have been able to touch, much less drive the legendary GT40, now made even more legendary because of Matt Damon and Christian Bale. The Lego set comes with a 2016 Ford GT and a 1966 Ford GT40, cheekily replete with a little podium and a trophy.
10Bugatti Chiron: Unaffordable, Period
Even if we could buy a sports car, the Bugatti Chiron would not be it, because of the price tag it was given due to its crazy 261-mph top speed. The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron, with more than 3,500 pieces and a working suspension, gearbox, as well as a very, very detailed engine, would have to do. And you have to admit, it does look pretty close to the real thing.
9Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: America’s Favorite Sports Car
So yes, many of us have had and still have Vette dreams, even if we cannot afford to have one, financially or practically speaking. This Lego Technic Corvette ZR1, with workable steering and pistons that move up and down, catches our fancy; especially as this Vette can take space on our work desk and requires no maintenance except some delicate handling.
8Porsche 911 GT3 RS: Crazy Cool
This is a Lego Technic folks, and as close to the real Porsche 911 GT3 RS as most of us are going to get. While we cannot sit in it unless we shrink to Lego size, this does have a workable suspension, a shiftable transmission, and working steering. And some 2,700 pieces guaranteed to drive you crazy while you assemble it from scratch.
7Ferrari F40 Competizione: Not Even In Your Dreams
This is the car even dreams shy off showing because its price today runs in the millions. So, you have no option but to get a Lego model only, and despite it not having workable parts, it does have plenty spare parts with a little driver/mechanic to boot, and several wheel caps to customize your Ferrari, different from the competition!
61968 Ford Mustang Fastback: Bullitt Flashback
Remember the Steve McQueen movie Bullitt, and the highland green Mustang he drove in it, that Ford later released with an eponymous name? This may or may not be it, but it is a model of the 1968 Mustang, fastback, in as close to highland green hue as Lego plastic can manage.
5Dodge Challenger SRT Demon & Dodge Charger R/T: Can’t Dodge ‘Em
We all love the Challenger and Charger, and owning a 1970 Charger R/T and a 2018 Challenger SRT Demon is what dreams are made of. With this awesome lego set, you can make that dream a reality. No workable parts here, but who cares when they look this adorable?
4Mercedes-AMG GT3: Insane Speeds, Crazy Price
Unless you have half-a-million bucks lying around and can handle vast amounts of speed without bawling for your momma, we’d suggest you stick to the Lego version of the Mercedes-AMG GT3. Because we will be doing the same, as well. This one comes with a little driver of a mini-figure, which you are free to imagine as your own Lego avatar.
3McLaren Senna: For The Road Racer
The McLaren Senna is a road-legal car, so you don’t have to be G-force-trained to drive this. But you do need about a million bucks for the real thing, which is why we have this Lego version here as a consolation prize. It comes with a mini-figure driver, and a propeller accessory as well, along with some pretty cool orange rims.
2Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC: World Rally Championship Winner
Agreed, the Ford Fiesta was never an unaffordable car, and many of us may even have one lying around. However, this is the M-sport WRC rally car, which is not street-legal and thus not attainable. But, it’s better to have it in Lego form, than not have it at all, considering it was a 2017 champion. Especially since it comes replete with rally stickers.
1Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro: For Your Le Mans Dreams
Once again, while a road-legal Audi is still coveted and owned by many, the Audi R18 e-Tron Quattro was a Le Mans racing prototype that we cannot lay our hands on unless we decide to risk life and limb on the track and be good at it. So make do with the Lego set, which comes with a tiny wrench, a driver, and the cutest fuel pump ever.
