The new Chevrolet Corvette C8 is really a very pretty car, even in LEGO

I have got to admit something quite shallow. I’m ashamed to say, but when it comes to cars, I judge the book by its cover. I only care what it looks like on the outside; I can’t figure out how many pistons or spark plugs it requires to blast off from 0 to 100km/h. Nor do I care! What I do know, however, is how difficult it is to capture the essence of beautiful curves and do justice to the real Chevrolet Corvette C8 using only hard-edged plastic bricks! The top trophy goes to Lasse Deleuran for even attempting this feat. And what I like about car builds like this one is how the windscreens are built using regular non-trans clear pieces. And though it’s not exactly new, I always love the Round 1×1 Quarter tiles used in many builds to smooth out the rough edges.

If you’re reading this article from me, it’s because this car has somehow successfully gone unnoticed by the motorheads in TBB, Matthew, Chris and Lino. If you don’t hear from me for a while, that’s because one of them ran me down while I was crossing the road for not reading the automotive bible. In the meantime, check out a few other angles of this beautiful beast.
