The black stallion

After 8 months, 20 races and plenty of drama, the 2016 Formula One season is now finally over. As a kid, F1 was regular TV viewing in my household and the cheers were always for Team Lotus drivers like Mansell, Andretti and Senna …which was probably because my dad worked for John Player! In my mind there is no race car more iconic than a 70s/80s era Lotus decked out in black and gold JPS livery. So this stunning LEGO model of a Lotus 72D by Hungarian builder zipar gives me all the feels.

The scale of this model means that the builder has managed to capture all of this vehicle’s angles and many small details (right down to the cockpit and V8 engine). But most impressively, it has allowed him to not cop out and use stickers to recreate the gold decals – they’re all brick built! Check out the full album for many glorious closeups.

That’s the bottom line – ‘cos Stone Cold said so!

While it may look like some kind of extreme ballet, or very unusual form of back therapy, wrestling fans may recognize this move – expertly recreated in LEGO by simplybrickingit – as the suplex. But can you tell which of the 50+ variants it is? Or what happens next? (…without looking at the script?)
