Ferrari transporterSuggested By: ShantJ Sponsored Why it's amazing: Ferrari's old Fiat race transporters looked very much like red bricks on wheels, so it's perhaps not the most challenging thing to make a basic model of one out of Legos.Still, this build in particular just gets it right, really making a realistic miniature of those classic symbols from F1 of yore.

Ariel Atom Advertisement Suggested By: GeeHalenWhy it's amazing: Most builds out of Lego Technics don't really work because the car ends up looking like it's made out of scaffolding. Advertisement This Ariel Atom, on the other hand, works great in this medium because in real life the car looks like it's made out of scaffolding.Photo Credit: Tyler Reid 8.) VW Camper Advertisement Suggested By: 45ACPWhy it's amazing: Lego spared no expense when it came to recreating an authentic old VW Camper. From the carpet to the flowers, it's all there. Advertisement The only thing that's missing are plenty of stashed drugs and the wonderfully full-bodied odor of resident hippies. 7.) Ferrari 312TSuggested By: Jones Foyer Advertisement Why it's amazing: The heart and soul that went into this stunning miniature 1975 Ferrari F1 racer is astounding. The builder, Luca Rusconi, got to see the real car himself as a child back in 1975, and he built himself a proper tribute.The whole story, with all of its obsession to detail and computer aided modeling is just fantastic.

Sheepo's Mini Advertisement Suggested By: JackieWhy it's amazing: The firing order on the miniature inline-four on this miniature Mini is the same as factory Mk.1 Minis. You won't find that in any of Lego's out-of-the-box designs. Advertisement From locking foors to folding seats, this Mini is an absolute treasure. 5.) Tyrrell P34Suggested By: mikeado Advertisement Why it's amazing: It's a six-wheel 1977 Tyrrell F1 car with working front steering, only in miniature. That's awesome. Moreover, the kind of dedication that must have gone into this build is staggering.Photo Credit: Luca Rusconi 4.) Lego's own Unimog U400 Advertisement Advertisement Suggested By: JackieWhy it's amazing: This is Lego Tecnic's own design and it doesn't look half bad. The swinging arm, the whirring gizmos, it's all very well executed. It might not be an individual's labor of love, but it's still a great miniature.Photo Credit: Lego 3.) Lightning McQueen Advertisement Suggested By: Brian, Knight of the steadfast 3%Why it's amazing: It's hard to call this Lego build a recreation, as there is no Lightning McQueen in the real world. This then, is the full size Lightning McQueen, built up for Disney and Pixar and giving Cars-obsessed kids something to hold onto. Advertisement Photo Credit: Ricky Brigante 2.) Full-size Ford Explorer Advertisement Suggested By: waveridin1959Why it's amazing: Ford themselves built this full-size Lego model to advertise their new Ford Explorer. What's funny is that while this Lego car is trying to look like a full Explorer, some would call the new Explorer itself a pretender, trying to ape a real body-on-frame SUV.Photo Credit: Scott Olson/Getty Images 1.) Sheepo's 997 Cabrio Advertisement Suggested By: SirHalffastWhy it's amazing: What's really mind blowing about this Lego car isn't that it took a year and a half to complete, but that everything that is supposed to work in a real, life size Porsche works in the miniature. The gearbox, the pistons, the steering, the folding roof – they're all here. Advertisement Suddenly that year and a half in build time starts to make sense.
