More images revealed for LEGO Speed Champions 76899 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X [News]

Late last month, the latest Speed Champions LEGO set in collaboration with Lamborghini was revealed at the Super Trofeo World Final on stage in Jerez, Spain. The images of 76899 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X shared at that time were photos from the stage and several media shots. Now, we’re getting a better look at the final box art and studio product images from LEGO.

This set comes with a total of 663 parts for the build of both vehicles and is adorned with stickers to pull off the final accurate detailing of the cars. Like the Jaguar Formula E and I-PACE LEGO set revealed last month, both cars conform to the new 8-stud-wide design language.

Lamborghini unveils the new 8-stud wide LEGO Speed Champions Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and Urus ST-X [News]

Earlier this month Jaguar shared the new LEGO Speed Champions in its new 8-stud wide design. Lamborghini now takes center stage to show off their new addition to the same LEGO design language with the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and Urus ST-X. The two new models were revealed at the Super Trofeo World Final on stage in Jerez.

LEGO Lambo is even rarer than the real thing

If you don’t have a spare $1.9m lying around then chances are you missed out on picking up a Lamborghini Centenario back in 2017. Can’t live without this stunning vehicle? Well, take a leaf out of Lennart C‘s book and build your own LEGO version. Although Lamborghini only manufactured forty of the Centenario, this model has the advantage of being even rarer, yet considerably cheaper. The build has all the trappings of the real thing, with its smart grey paint job offset by bright yellow flashes, and those wonderful doors. And just like the real thing, the ground clearance on this bad boy is rubbish — so watch out for any speed bumps!

Burn rubber and scorch earth in a Lamborghini

When you hear the name Lamborghini, high-performance sports cars quickly come to mind. However, there are also Lamborghini tractors. Yvan Bourdeau built a LEGO version of the Centenario which commemorated the 100th birthday of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. Just like their speedier cousins, you can see these vehicles are built with performance in mind. I mean, just look at that V12 engine! Besides some excellent mechanical details, I especially like the large rear tires, which came in the first Technic set I ever owned, LEGO 8860 Car Chassis. Yvan’s attention to detail is a perfect tribute to the real thing.

Lamborghini Centanario: a car with killer curves

Anyone who has ever fallen in love with the romance of the Lamborghini knows the seductive power of its lines. The Centanario, designed in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini, exemplifies everything brilliant about the alluring shape of its cars. Builder Lachlan Cameron has pulled out all the stops to replicate the sweeping form of the Centanario in LEGO Technic form.

Sliding carefully selected Technic beams over flexi tube, he has captured the unique flow from bonnet to mudguards that defines the car. Add in a host of features such as superbly modelled doors, bucket seats and functioning lighting and you have a fitting tribute to one of today’s most recognisable supercars.

Who drove it best? Lamborghini Aventador or Toyota Prius

A couple of really high quality LEGO car models rolled across our monitors this week so I thought we’d take the opportunity to feature both models, hailing from very different economic classes but from a pair of equally talented creators. On the affordable-by-the-common-man end of the spectrum, we have hachiroku24‘s Toyota Prius model topping out around USD$24,000. And he’s provided a handy parts guide and instructional video.

Breaking the bank at the other end of the scale is Jonathan Elliot‘s high class USD$400,000 Lamborghini Aventador.

I genuinely appreciate when iconic shapes are accomplished with creative parts use, and both these cars fit that qualification. Both builders are masters of their craft, consistently perfecting minifig scale automobiles. My absolute favorite new(er) piece use here is the front bumper of the start white Aventador achieved with mirrored Wedge 2×1 with stud notch Left and Right. It’s such a distinctive shape at such a small scale. The utilitarian grey Prius’ curved frame is brought about with flex cable and the Bar Holder with Handle

And if you like these cars as much as we do, make sure to check out hachiroku’s chill, easy-to-follow VW Bus building instructions from last week and Jonathan’s trio of classic cars shared earlier this summer.

This LEGO Lamborghini Countach is a red-hot Italian classic extravaganza

While I do love me some Speed Champions, I do really enjoy seeing fan creations using techniques that trim off most of the visible studs to give a car a sleek and smooth look. This Lamborghini Countach by Simon Przepiorka is one of those tiny wonders that make my jaw drop. I’ve always been a fan of the Countach and this is one of the best representations that I’ve seen at this scale thus far.

Lamborghini Centenario in all its glory

Just as the Lamborghini Centenario pays homage to the vision of Ferrucio Lamborghini, this LEGO Centenario built by Lachlan Cameron gives tribute to the already iconic supercar. Clad in black with red highlights, this model features illuminated headlights and taillights, elegant scissor doors, chromed tailpipes, and even a personalized California license plate! The wheels from the Porsche 911 GT3 RS complement the overall impression of this model.

You do not make modifications on a Countach. That car is perfect!

I imagine making any car instantly recognizable at minifigure scale would be difficult, and George Panteleon does it beautifully with his LEGO Lamborghini Countach. He made great part choices for the windscreen and the headlights, and the lines of the sports car are captured rather well in a 7-stud-wide package.

LEGO Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce in 1:16 scale

Jordanian builder Firas Abu-Jaber presents a 1:16 replica of a Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce worthy of his stunning lineup of LEGO supercars. The lines and subtle angles and slopes throughout are faithful to the real thing. Custom decals over the rear wheels, on the hood, and as the license plates are fine touches that I believe enhance the model.

The doors open to reveal a detailed interior. The seats may be my favorite detail in Firas’s excellent model; they appear comfortable for a LEGO man behind the wheel.

1:10 Scale Lamborghini Aventador

Nick Barrett proves it is possible to capture the lines of a Lamborghini Aventador beautifully with LEGO parts. His 1:10 scale replica includes working suspension and steering, a detailed interior and V12 engine covered by cleverly built glass panels.

And the winners of the 75th LUGnuts challenge are

About four weeks ago, I announced the 75th build challenge organised by LUGNuts, the online group for LEGO car nuts. There normally are no prizes for the challenges, but because this was our 75th we decided to add a little extra incentive. Members could build a car, obviously, but with other members assigning the car in question. The builders of the winning cars get prizes, but also the members who suggested them. The judges had a hard time choosing, but after I tallied up all the votes, we reached a conclusion. Without further ado, here are the winners of the 75th LUGnuts challenge. The comments below the images, written in italic script, are by Lino Martins ( Lino M), who, for lack of a better word, serves as LUGNuts’ ringleader.

In first place:
1967 Ford Mustang GT500
Pēteris Sproģis shows us all how its done with his stunning1967 Ford GT500. He could have stopped at just building the car, but he sets the scene and tells a story with an entire diorama of a Mustang car pulling a Mustang horse.

In second place:
Lamborghini Egoista
What happens when Lamborghini turns 50 and has a midlife crisis? The Egoista, as built by Curtis D. Collins (curtydc). Trophy brides half your age will forgive a guy’s pot belly and comb-over if he owned this baby. But you can’t take her with you as its only a one-seater. Awesome job, Curty!

In third place:
Ford RS200, LUGnuts 75th challenge.
Lego Junkie. lives up to his name with his totally awesome Ford RS-200. (…) Good show, Junkie. May you never seek recovery for your addiction.

The winning cars were assigned by Raphael Granas (r a p h y ), Rolands Kirpis (Rolic) and Dylan Denton (/>ylan/>.), respectively.

We post contest announcements on TBB fairly regularly, but I realise that we don’t actually always show the outcome. If it is this good, however, that’s a big omission. Congratulations guys!
