Speed demon

The Fiat Mefistofele was a one-off racing car created in the 1920s to break the land speed record. It was named after a demon by its driver, apparently due to the infernal sound created by the airplane engine that had been fitted inside! Korean builder Pixel Junkie does the historic vehicle justice in this LEGO minifig scale reinterpretation.

The Mefistofele’s unusual construction might explain why the builder chose to man his version with a well-known animated pilot! I only wish the hood could be removed to reveal a LEGO version of that engine. Instead, I will have to make do with this lovely little scene of a mechanic tinkering with it the workshop.
