Lego Ferrari was 4 years in the making

We reported recently on a Lego Lancia that had been built by an enthusiast hoping the famed toy maker would make it a reality, this however is on a bit of grander scale. Reported by Motor, this particular Lego creation took Four years, 36,000 pieces of Lego, some LED lights, a passion for Ferraris and a lot of patience!

Ryan Link has shared the details of one of his creations on a Lego forum, and it’s incredibly detailed. The creator has made a Ferrari dealership over a 4 year period.

The dealership is complete with a detailed interior, including ceiling lights, showroom display models and wall art depicting classic Ferraris.

Ryan says the building alone used up about 23,000 pieces, with a transporter made from a further 5000, and 8000 being used for the cars.

“I incorporated 3rd party LED lights to illuminate the interior of the building, which can be seen lining the ceiling.”

“On the rear section of the building, there is a lounge with comfortable furniture to sit upon while selecting just the right trim options for your brand new car. Above, 288 GTO and LaFerrari mosaics appear next to another prancing horse to help strike inspiration.”

“From the early stages of this build, I knew I was going to incorporate LED lighting… I was able to build all of the wiring into the ceiling, wrapping around and meeting at one side in the centre.”

“The wires then route down through a hollow support pillar, underneath the tile flooring, and out the side of the model to plug into the wall.”

It’s an outstanding piece of creative work, Lego themselves are unlikely to commission it in their range which is a shame but having said that it would not be cheap so would probably be out of the range of most people. Nonetheless we applaud Ryan for creating a brilliant piece.
