This Lego street racing scene, called “Street racers’ haunt” is created by Faber Mandragore. Originally built to be displayed at Model Expo Italy, which was canceled this year. There is a lot going on in this scene. Two hot rods are facing off for an illegal drag race. Although the main focus of the build, the background is impressive on its own. A full rural gas station, some of the woods out back, and a huge crowd who have come to see the show. The two speedsters in the front almost look like they are the same model, but after market upgrades have changed their appearance. The grey racer looks like they have the bigger engine, but can they win the street race? In the back are a bunch of Minifigures getting ready for their turn to race, a bunch of betting is going on behind the scenes, and you can even spot a photographer. The gas station has a brick built sign, and they exclusivly sell the classic Octan gasoline. A few stand out details include the power/phone poles, the street light, and the little red arrow showing you where to go.
Most cars come with a lot of options, especially sports cars. There are so many terms, and initials that could mean almost anything. This Lego Hot Rod, created by Faber Mandragore, is a Model B, and Supercharged. The scene features the car, a vintage gas pump, and some various mini builds. Hopefully the old Octan pumps have premium gas, you want to make sure everything is running at peak performance. The pile of tires is a perfect mini build, but the Hot Rod is the star. It features a few of the common engine building techniques. The Minifigure pistols, the intake, and the radiator are all popular details. What really sets this apart are the wheels. The exposed steering system looks great and is a surprisingly complicated detail. You can find Lego wrenches, a droid arm, crowbars, and axles. Lego Hot Rods are just as popular as their real life counterpart, and this one is one of the best Minifigure scale ones around.
This Lego Speedster is designed by FiliusRucilo. Speedster, Roadsters, Hot Rods, and all sorts of sporty cars are popular to build with Lego. This Minifigure scale vehicle has a very narrow design. The dark red, and black design is a classic paint color for these vehicles. There are a few small details that look great. The use of a Minifigure pistol and a Lego sausage are great pieces to represent engine details. The Nexo Knights shield works well as a hood. The whole build looks like something that could be attempting a world record at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Let’s hope our driver can set that world record!
