The flying Scotsman rides again: Jackie Stewart’s Matra MS80 01

1969 was a glory year for Jackie Stewart, dominating the F1 Championship in his Matra MS80 01; and it is the spirit of this golden age of motor racing that builder Luca Rusconi recreates in his version of the classic car. Luca is known for his detail perfect LEGO renditions of the sport’s most iconic cars, here capturing the distinctive ‘Coke bottle’ shape of the Matra with a range of perfectly aligned curved bricks. An array of smaller LEGO elements treats the Ford’s Cosworth DFV engine similarly. There’s no doubt that Luca’s interpretation of the Matra is as stylish and emblematic as the car it pays homage to.
