LEGO builder Lachlan Cameron has been making a name for himself with a stream of truly magnificent Technic cars. Many of them are adorned with custom chromed parts, as this 1977 Holden Torana A9X is, fitted with copper-colored rims that originally hailed from the Bugatti Chiron and a smattering of other shiny bits for the bumpers and exhaust.
This car is fully motorized with PowerFunctions and still has a full interior and engine. There’s a lot of excellent shaping work that goes into the general shaping of this Australian sports sedan, particularly the flared fenders.
During my research for our review of the new LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián, I found myself reading about Ferrari’s infamous pickiness regarding the customization owners can do to their cars. But LEGO builder Lachlan Cameron has designed a beautiful Technic Ferrari F12 and then customized it in a way that I think even Ferrari would approve–a luscious cherry chrome paint job supplied by Bubul Chrome.

Builder Lachlan Cameron has replicated the 2019 Ford GT quite nicely with Technic bits in an understated gunmetal gray. Much of its complex shaping is achieved through considerable build skill and liberal use of flex tubing cased in Technic pin connectors along the roofline and hood details, while the same treatment is achieved with 1×3 liftarms along the front fenders. I’m a fan of sports cars with an understated primary color scheme but a flashy secondary color (in this case tertiary color in red)…Well, it’s just enough flash to let us know it means serious business.
The real thing is loaded with six cylinders in the chamber, seemingly a underwhelming number for such an aggressive beast. With this in mind, you may be tempted to race this car in your Monte Carlo but doing so would be akin to bringing a knife to a gunfight, which so many action spy movies attest is a bad idea. It can crank 647 horsepower out of those six bullets with a top speed of 216 mph. Lock, stock and barrel, this is one fast projectile indeed!
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.
