Think the legendary 911 GT3 RS sportscar is expensive? Why not own a Lego version
THE Porsche 911 isn’t just a sportscar—it’s a masterclass in race car building. And its hunkier version, the 911 GT3
RS (Racing Sport), takes it to a whole new level. Lego has now come up with a perfect scaleddown
tribute to this legendary piece of machinery. It may just be one-eighth the size of the actual Porsche, but it’s a brick-by-brick representation
of the complete experience of the car— all the way from building it to owning it. To help owners put together the 2,704 pieces, Lego
has included an instruction manual that catalogues details of the build process of the original Porsche and what needs to done to get your set to look like the real sportscar.
By the piece
The wheel rims on the Lego car are the original design, with the RS emblem. In fact, every design and aerodynamic element is loyal to the original—including the Lava Orange colour. The doors open, the spoiler pops up and down, and the tiny steering wheel even turns the front
wheels. What’s more, the six-cylinder boxer engine in the rear has moving pistons. There’s also a fully functional four-speed Porsche doubleclutch transmission in there. Sounds complicated to build out of Lego? It’s all worth it.
Available at Lego stores in Delhi and Chennai.
From August 1. Rs 20,000.
