Racing back to the 80s in style

Here’s a collection of beautiful Porsche 962 racing cars, built in LEGO bricks by PROTOTYP and decked out in the livery of 3 of the teams from the 1988 Fuji 1000km Endurance Race. Originally designed in 1984, the 962 was to become one of the most dominant racing cars in its class. In the Fuji race depicted with these models, the 962 took no less than 7 of the Top 10 places. The curved lines of these LEGO versions are excellent — wonderfully smooth and immediately recognisable. The different team liveries are nicely done too, with the colour blocking on the white model particularly good.

As if the smart shaping wasn’t enough, there’s a brick-built 2.8L engine lurking beneath the removable rear cowling…
