Ken Block’s 1,400hp AWD Ford Mustang Hoonicorn is not your ordinary GT Fastback from the 1967 model year, even though both cars still got the body of a 1965 Mustang. A huge fan of LEGO cars, lachlan cameron, skilfully captures the car’s wild design with a ton of LEGO Technic liftarms and panels. No need to say, the result is just stunning, but these jaw-dropping red chrome rims is where the car really shines. Custom LEGO pieces can contribute a lot to any build’s final appearance, and in this case the rims create the Mustang’s character. But don’t forget to check out the rest of the chrome parts, as well as a whole bunch of custom stickers that make the LEGO version almost a perfect scale copy of the real car.
Collaborative building projects can yield amazing results, such as this slick 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 overlooking a picturesque cliff. The bright red Mustang was built by ham_MOC, while the cliff was built by Jonathan S. If you didn’t know this was a collaboration, you might think everything was made by one person. That’s because the two builds pair nicely, complete with advanced coloring techniques like the Mustang’s two-tone exterior and the layering of colors on the cliff. It makes for a cohesive build that couples American muscle with the beauty of the American West.
The two builders built this colorful vignette for the LEGO Ideas contest, “Celebrate your favorite Ford Mustang in a beautiful scenery!”
