  • Lego Lamborghini Countach

It's the ultimate childhood icon of the '80s built with the ultimate childhood toy of the '80s: a Lamborghini Countach fashioned from Lego blocks. One German member of Eurobricks.com created exactly that as he designed and built his very own Lego Lambo.

According to the Lego-centric forum, Georg (aka Polo-Freak) started with a 1:18 scale model of the Countach and used a computer program to begin mapping out the construction of Lego Lamborghini starting in 2007. Three years later, he started buying the necessary pieces for his Lego masterpiece, and while he doesn't give any ballpark figure of how many blocks it took to built the car (or at what cost), the number of pieces required for this project is probably more Legos than most of had in total as kids.

The scaled-down Lamborghini is surprisingly detailed with all of the car's unique elements – such as the raised spoiler, rear air scoops and even the pop-up headlights. After all the planning, it still took him two weeks to assemble. That is probably more dedication than most of us have put into our full-scale projects, and the end result is a nothing short of incredible.

      I think that because the car was made using the basic standard Lego blocks (instead of pre-fab Lego parts), the guy should be commended a bit. It takes patients, time, and overall vision to complete such tasks. And the car had to be that size because the standard Lego blocks were used. That's a heck-of-a good job there.

        Correct. When I was a kid I just wanted the basic block sets to see what all I could make. If I did have a pre fab set I would take bits off of it to combine with the basic sets to see what they could become.

      Sorry to be a downer but this is pointless. At least it should have some basic functions. This looks like a pixellized 3D image.

      Would have been even sweeter if it was the original Countache and not that body-kit laden abomomination.
