LEGO planes, trains, and automobiles! Well, maybe not trains, since they don’t like to play with the other LEGO themes, but here you’ll find all our favorite cars, buses, boats, ships, helicopters, and anything else with an engine (and some without).

Life’s too short to build boring cars

I’m in love with this orginally-designed supercar by Portugese builder Alexander Paschoaletto. The builder is certainly no stranger to building wicked sports cars – just look through his Flickr photostream to see a ton of awesome designs, some real, others completely original. Alexander blew it out of the water with his latest creation, which features opening Lambo doors, a lovely color scheme and the curves to drive anyone wild.

No small amount of work went into bringing this lovely design to life and you’ll notice some clever parts usage to achieve this distinctive look. There are lots of details to appreciate, from those awesome looking headlights to the exquisite interior. Even sitting still, this supercar looks like it’s going 200kph.

It takes a cop from the future to fight a game from the past

In my opinion, the best movie from the 80’s has to be Kung Fury. Which is funny considering it’s actually a crowdfunded Swedish short made in 2015. This completely over-the-top parody pays homage to martial arts and cop action movies of the era. It features a murderous arcade machine, dinosaur-riding barbarian women, an army of incompetent Nazis, and even a cameo by David Hasselhoff. Watch it today! I loved it so much I even recreated a scene from the movie in LEGO…

Gangsters beware, the cops are coming

When LEGO gangsters cause mayhem in your town, you need to call in Dario Minisini‘s police flying squad in their vintage car! The shaping on this model is great — I particularly like the curve at the base of the rear bodywork — and the use of skis as front mudguards is inspired. I can almost hear the throaty old-school klaxon’s wail as this beauty skids around the corners of Old Chicago.

This vehicle wouldn’t look out of place in the vintage street scene Dario put together last year…

LEGO Corvette Stingray takes you back to the 60’s

I don’t think many people would disagree with me if I said that the original Corvette Stingray is one of the most beautiful cars ever created. It’s a huge undertaking for a builder to try and replicate it, but luckily Dave Slater is up to the job. This red 1963 Corvette Stingray is just about perfect. Look at those lines!

The superb shaping is obviously the most impressive part of the build, but zoom in and you’ll find more fine details. Shutter pieces used for the hood vents, the long rubber pointed piece completing the stripe down the middle, and the obscure roof pieces used for that iconic split window back are all used to great effect.

This also isn’t the first Stingray this builder has built, it’s the third! We’ve featured his yellow Z51 already, and there’s also his blue 427 that we never got the chance to show off. Here’s a group shot of the trio:

Dodge Challenger 440 big block built in real blocks

I can almost hear the ponies roaring inside this painstakingly detailed LEGO rendition of a 1970 Challenger R/T by Senator Chinchilla. Where to begin on this exquisitely detailed model? Well, for starters, the subtle shaping around the front wheel fenders and engine cowl are both clever and delightful. The back end is quite lovely too and uses a wide assortment of SNOT techniques to accurately recreate the Challenger’s lines.

The use of an antenna part for the “Challenger” logo on the front grill is nothing short of genius:

The doors and engine compartment also open to reveal lots of little details like A/C vents, a complete set of foot pedals, and even a working glovebox:

The fun begins where the pavement ends

I’m certain there’s a bit of the off-road enthusiast in all of us. Who couldn’t possibly enjoy the chance to escape the trappings of urban life and explore the countryside in a rugged 4×4? If it’s something you’ve never thought of before, than you’re sure to develop an interest after seeing this awesome collection of classic 4×4 vehicles by Pixel Fox:

”LEGO

From the Mercedes Unimog and Land Cruiser J70 to the Land Rover Defender and Jeep Cherokee XJ, the builder’s collection has spanned some of the most well-known and capable trail rigs. According to the builder, it all started from inspiration sparked by the wheel fenders included in the LEGO Stunt Truck released earlier this year (you’ll see the part replicated to great effect throughout this series). The mix of LEGO elements and environmental photography combines for a fantastic presentation, though purists are sure to balk. Plus, some of the scenes are just downright awesome, like this one featuring a beautifully-designed Land Rover Defender:

Or the Unimog tree-cutting scene:

Tanks beware, the War Mustang is locked on

Enemy armor slowing you down? Then get ready to pop some tanks with the War Mustang Multi-Purpose Anti-Tank Missle System (try saying that several times real fast) built by Stud Systems. The War Mustang is a lovely and cleverly designed combat vehicle. The coolest detail has to be the poseable missile launcher and guidance system, which conveniently folds down into the roof when not in use.

36,000-piece Ferrari Dealership showcases beautiful LEGO dream cars

Four years of building and gathering parts led to an incredible showroom of LEGO Ferrari models by Ryan Link. The build uses over 36,000 parts: 23,000 parts form the building with a 5,000-piece transporter; finally, eight Ferrari models (including the official Ferrari F40 set) adding another 8,000 parts.

Ferrari Dealership

The dealership interior is well lit by LEDs and built in exquisite detail, with excellent brick-built Ferrari lettering and graphics lining the walls. Of course, this is all to house and showcase the intricate custom built supercars.

Building a bike on a budget

I’m a sucker for builds with low parts counts and clever parts usage, and they don’t come better than this bike by Brian Kescenovitz. It won’t pay to get into each clever use of a part, because almost every brick that went into this is placed in an ingenious manner. However, the use of the Exo-Force leg for the fuel tank and the bad robot arm for the underside of the frame stand out among the rest as examples of perfect placement.

Naked Bike

No less impressive are Brian’s other tiny bikes, a flowing white touring bike and a streamlined red racer.

This Bugatti Veyron gives the Speed Champions line a run for its money

After conquering the worlds of Titanfall and Horizon Zero Dawn,  Marius Herrmann is back to tackle LEGO cars. Bugatti Veyron borrows a lot from the LEGO Speed Champions line, including the windscreen, grille sticker and the new smaller slope pieces. This build’s base design comes from Herrmann’s Audi R8 we highlighted a few weeks ago.
