Here at Fiat Chrysler Authority, we find ourselves writing about Lego pretty often. There was the now famous Ferrari F40 Lego kit, which started out as a concept on the company’s Lego Ideas page before it eventually made it to production, the Lego Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, the Lego Dodge Viper and now there’s a Lego Ferrari 512S Coda Lunga.
This is probably our favorite Lego creation of the ones we’ve covered. Thought up by Lego and motorsports fan Alan Guerzoni and posted to the Lego Ideas site, this scale model attempts to recreate the No. 12 Ferrari 512S Coda Lunga fielded by Hughes de Fierlandt and Alistair Walkerat Le Mans in 1970. We think Guerzoni’s done a pretty job of it, too, accurately capturing the svelte Le Mans racer’s dimensions using mostly square bricks. Color us impressed.
In order for a Lego Ideas post to be considered for actual production, it must reach upwards of 10,000 votes. Guerzoni is well on his way, with 3,208 supporters so far and 564 days left to vote. Check out his creation at this link for additional information and photos and check out the video embedded below for an example of Guerzoni’s 3D modelling skills using the 512S Coda Lunga as his base.
