If you like cars and Lego, then the brand’s Speed Champions sets are perfect for you, but since only a handful are available, your favorite car may not be offered by the toy company.
If you’re as talented as well-known Lego builder Firas Abu-Jaber, then that’s no problem for you. His favorite car is an R35 Nissan GT-R, but instead of waiting for Lego to produce a kit of the GT-R, he built one himself. His replica, which is actually of the track prepped Nismo GT-R, looks fairly accurate with the low, flat rear wing, circular taillights, and large front grille. The interior is fairly spot-on as well with red and black trim and even a little navigation screen.
Abu-Jaber says this project was actually pretty tough and that’s saying a lot considering his Flickr page is full of similarly intricate builds, including a very impressive Lamborghini Aventador SV Lego replica. We’d love to see Lego add a GT-R to its Speed Champions set, but for now, we’ll just have to appreciate this one-off fan build.
