Firas Abu-Jaber's Lego cars - click above for a high-res gallery

This is how you tell the master from the journeyman: Give them a common task, place the same tools in each of their hands, and while journeyman's results will be acceptable, the master's results will be amazing. Firas Abu-Jaber has a way with Legos that certainly qualifies him as a master in the medium when it comes to building cars.

By his own admission, having played with Legos since he started eating cereal, he is now proficient enough with the regular blocks – not the specialized sets – to create all manner of realistic vehicles and interiors. His work speaks for itself, so have a look at the gallery below to see what passion can do with a set of Legos.

      All you naysayers are full of it. This guy is amazingly talented! If you've actually built the Ferrari sets released by Lego, you'd know that they suck in comparison to these models by Firas Abu-Jaber. This talk of specialized pieces is crap, because the only thing in there I would call a specialized piece that you wont find in the original Lego sets are those wheel well arches. Everything else is brick and plate, even the white stripes, yup that's right, no stickers! Unlike Lego...

      These Lego cars are awesome. Lego should start selling this model and other interesting cars. Then they could create Lego Car Dealerships and charge exorbitant amounts of money for service.

      nice post Pokey... "shoving your face full of nachos and scratching your beer gut"
      love it! :-D

      this guy is pretty talented if you ask me to be able to do that from scratch, all of it, the big rig, the KIT trans am, the R8, the ford GT looked real good to be done from scratch

      This is amazing. I've seen some cool Lego cars before but these look so much like the real cars

      Lego should start to sell model cars.

      Lego needs to hire this guy pronto!

      They used to sell model cars...I have an old red white and blue big rig model from the late 80's and a yellow jeep. This guy isn't as creative at he appears.

        I suppose you could do better?

        I bet you're one of those guys that watches sports, and bitches and moans about how crappy your favorite team is, and how you could do so much better, all while shoving your face full of nachos, and scratching your beer-gut.

        You mean Lego Model Team? I had the Jeep and the F1 car. Those were good, but i think these are better. There are some amazing hobbyist lego people around if you look on the internets. Much better than the official sets.

        Every one of those is made using specialized sets, not regular bricks. The big rig is made from a few different model masters sets and the GT and Audi are made from several F430 sets.

        Lego sells quite a few sets of real cars that look just as good as these. It does take talent to take the blocks and turn them into a different car, but not as much as using standard bricks. Within the model masters sets are every tool you need to buld a car.

        Yes this is cool and the guy did a good job, but there are much better lego creations out there using only the base town sets. I wish I had the crazy pieces you can get with lego sets today when I was building things in the '80s as a kid. The hardest part in trying to build this stuff is finding the right pieces.

      that r8 is excellent.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Hehee this is insane!
      • 5 Years Ago
      That GT40 should be sold as a set by Lego. They could sell 'em also in Ford dealerships for the kiddies.
        • 5 Years Ago
        The cheaper alternative to the real thing. Plus, no oil changes or new tires.

      This is what lego should be like. Making something cool like these with regular blocks is where the fun is. Specialised blocks ruined half the fun imo.
