To capture the vehicle’s powerful appearance, LEGO imagined the model with the same sharp contours and aerodynamic mold of the actual supercar, coupled with a flurry of details to mirror its engine. The model sports an independent suspension and a six-cylinder boxer engine that comes with moving pistons. A radar screen, working steering and fire extinguisher system can be seen in the model’s accessible cockpit. Most of the figure’s body is decorated in red, black and white, complemented by a track map of the Laguna Seca circuit on the driver door. Other details like black spoked rims, head and taillights, side mirrors, an extended rear diffuser and a rear wing with “swan neck” mounts have been designed to get a look that comes as close to the real vehicle as possible.
LEGO Technic’s 1,580-piece Porsche Design 911 RSR is currently available on LEGO’s website for $150 USD.
