If you don’t immediately recognize this car, or if you don’t know who Ken Block is, watch this! Lachlan cameron obviously does, recreating the 1400 brake horsepower, four wheel drive monster. The LEGO version is also radio controlled, complete with it’s own action video. The only thing missing is the smoking tires.
I remember having an RC car back in the day. An awesome cherry red Ferrari Enzo with silver rims and even headlights that you could turn on. This bad boy would zoom around the house at ungodly speeds, until it would eventually crash into a wall every time. Nonetheless, I’m pretty sure my 8 year old self would not mind having this McLaren Senna by morimorilego instead. A new ride built out of my favorite toy! But I can’t imagine the damage of crashing this RC car into a wall. Absolutely brutal.
David Aguilar, born without a right forearm due to a genetic condition, has built one for himself out of LEGO bricks. In fact, it’s mostly from set #9396. He’s an engineering student in Spain and has been creating his own LEGO arms since age 9. The latest version, inspired by Iron Man, has a bendable elbow and gripping hand. Check out the video. His goal after he graduates is to build affordable prosthetics for people in need. Excellent!
How about a repulsor on the next one, David?

One of my favorite family cars growing up was my dad's Jeep. It was obnoxious orange, bouncy, and uncomfortable, and we all loved it. So I have a natural soft spot for the venerable Jeep, and when I saw this beast by builder Horcik Designs I knew instantly I was going to blog it. And while I absolutely love my Toyota Tacoma, I could see myself towing my new Airstream with this without using much imagination.
It's a Tatra, one of the oldest car companies you've maybe never heard of. One of, if not the, first car companies to consider aerodynamics in design, influencing countless cars and manufacturers to come. This beautiful streamlined beauty is from Horcik Designs, and features opening doors, hood and trunk (bonnet and boot) and a detailed engine compartment.
