About this creation
Lego Technic Ferrari 250 GTO

Quite possibly the only technic 250 GTO (at least, the only one I've found so far) in existence...



My favourite car of all time, and I think the most beautiful Ferrari ever built. I thought it might be a challenge (understatement!) after the Veyron.

I actually found this one harder to build than the Veyron - the 250 isn't well suited to replication in technic oweing to the large number of body curves and old drivetrain layout. I couldn't use any of the standard wishbones for this set - the V12 has to sit low over the front axle, necessitating a scratch built arm, and odd shock absorber placement (it's actually attached to the front of the engine block). But the back is where it gets exciting: the real car has a live rear axle and leaf springs; I replicated this, too.

Functions:
- Working steering, linked to steering wheel (properly calibrated; 2 turns lock to lock)
- Full suspension, same type as the real car - independent wishbone front, live rear axle with leaf springs and dampers
- Working V12 up front, positioned over front axle
- 3-speed gearbox with shifter between the seats
- Power functions: motor linked to engine flywheel (between gearbox and engine); 'kill switch'; working headlamps

Constructed from: the Bugatti Veyron (ouch) - 8145 Ferrari 599, and 8297 Off Roader.


Okay, more photos and details:



I'm particularly pleased with the way the rear quarter turned out, especially the lower flanks immediately behind the wheels:



The front was almost impossible to build - those curves, aargh!



Side profile. Note the angled wing vents :D



To the bottom. Note the entire car is effectively flat (there are no protruding bits at the bottom) with 2 studs of clearance. The green angled beams are the 'leaf springs' - they don't provide any resistance, but prevent the live rear axle from swaying laterally and back to front. Gearbox is in the middle. Note thin front suspension arms. I er...forgot to put the lower cover on the battery box...



The gearbox, if anybody wants to use these ratios. Note the large gear at top left should be pushed all the way over to the right (immediately next to the gray bushing) - not sure why it slipped here. Current gear is second. The three large gears are not all on the same shaft - the rightmost two are joined to the output shaft, and the left one joined to the input shaft.



Live rear axle and differential. The long horizontal black beam near the battery box is a stabilizer to prevent the axle half shafts from bending instead of the shock absorbers...



Side view, rear wheel removed



Front suspension in more detail



Note the motor mounted directly to the firewall/ front dash. Contained inside are an assortment of gears that are linked to the V12 and gearbox. The motor is also braced from underneath. (Side vents and front wheel removed for this shot)



The V12...and the reason why there are only exhaust stacks on the left hand side...



Kill switch - in reality a pole reverser serving double duty as an extension cable (the motor wire isn't long enough to reach from the engine compartment to the battery box in the rear). Wires were tucked under the 'flooring' to keep everything neat. You can also see the gear knob in the top right.



Driver's view, door open.



Through the rear window. Note windscreen wiper.



I love the way this shot makes it look like a real race car. (passenger seat removed). Note gearbox and bare firewall, just like the real thing. The two red bushes at lower right are the ends of the intermediate gear pinion and PF motor pinion. The universal joint on the output shaft (left) allows the rear axle to float.



Enough of the technical stuff, now for a few artistic shots! If you've enjoyed this MOC please don't forget to rate! Comments are always welcome - as well as suggestions for which car to build next!

Thanks for looking!

*A technical note on photography for the interested - all images except for the last one were shot with a mix of on and off camera flash - Nikon SB900/ SB600. Cameras used were the Nikon D3 (with AFS 105/2.8 VR and AFS 24-70/2.8 lenses; most images) and the Panasonic LX3 (for the wideangle macros, which no DSLR can do).

I don't think I'd be able to build another one as a) I don't plan b) there are no instructions c) every one is slightly different and d) not sure the original source sets are still available. However, I could sell you mine. If you're keen, email me - mingthein@gmail.com

Thank you Bill, yes, it's just the 8297 and 8145. I've acquired more parts but not used them in this MOC... Veyron II...ahh. I don't think that'll be anytime soon - I don't want to break up the GTO either!
Quoting Bill Tanner Hi Ming, beautiful work - inspirational. I'm just wondering if the GTO is made up only from parts from the 8297 Off Roader and the 8145 Ferrari 599, as your Veyron was, or have you managed to source and include more parts since then? Looking forward to seeing the Veyron II, but I think I'd cry if you had to break up the beautiful GTO! All the best, Bill.

The Enzo has V12, steering, hydraulic engine bay, suspension (not sure about that one). The 599 only has V12 and steering. 8448 has steering, V8, suspension, 6speed, folding roof, and I think 4WD.

Thanks! some nice MOCs you've got there too. Love the Lambo and the Viper - no way I could have stuffed a full 6-speed box in the 250 though, the actual car is just way too narrow. Btw, we drive the same car! I've got an 07 Civic FD2 also.

This is indeed better than the real thing. When it comes to transmissions, you and I are in similar situations. I don't have any driving rings. On my Audi R8, I made a 7+R transmission by essentially combining a 4-speed and a 2-speed transmission perpendicular to each other, one on top of the other. That wouldn't fit in here so well, it was about 12x6x4 studs. Just barely fit behind the seats on the R8, much less between the seats on this one.
 I made it 
  May 16, 2009
LOL! Well, better for the sole reason that I can own it... I wanted to do something more fancy with the gearbox but the narrowness of the real thing limited me to a 3-speed between the seats. I've designed a 6-speed 'box that uses two driving rings - akin to the real DSG double clutch system - for a Veyron II should I ever get around to building one...but making it paddle-actuated is going to be a serious challenge.

Thank you! That'd be an awesome job, but I suspect they're all taken...and the last guy who got a job by building an MOC did that incredible F-14 Tomcat. My gearbox works okay. It only has three gears. The problem I'm having is keeping the selector in place so it doesn't change by itself. I actually have a true twin-shaft, double clutch design but the actuation mechanism is presenting a bit of a problem at the moment (and besides, they didn't have double clutch 'boxes back in '63 - that's for the Veyron II). There's a closeup of the gearbox about half way down the page. The top shaft slides back and forth; input is on the right, output is on the left (they look like the same shaft, but are actually divided halfway through the big sand colored gears).
Quoting Vibor Cavor I have nothing else to say but bravo!!! Man, You can easily build stuff for Lego! Great work. Say, I am having problems with understanding how the gears work. In fact I haven't seen a Lego gearbox that works without problems. Your gears work well? If so would it be hard for you if you would give me a sketch of the gearbox?

Thank you! Unfortunately I have some not so good news for you friend...you will need MANY gears to build something like this - firstly for the steering rack, secondly even if you don't motorize it or use a gearbox, you still need some way of linking the engine with the rear wheels. And then there's the issue of the differential - without one, you'll find it very hard to turn the car. But I suppose you could have a dummy engine and independent wheels... Start by laying out the chassis beams and wheel positions - that gives you an idea of proportions, and how much space you have to fit stuff in. For the main longitudinal chassis members, try to double them up for stiffness, and lock them in with those L beams. You can attach lateral members to these, and then from there work out how to attach the outer frame. Most of the shape is given by the flex tubes, so all you have to do is figure out where to put the mounting points - which isn't so hard, because flex tubes will attach to just about anything. Good luck!
Quoting Armaan Ujra Ferrari is my favourite manufacturer and I must say this would be the most accurate 250 GTO in Technic pieces I have ever seen. I have a lot of Technic pieces which I build cars from...could you please send me some tips to build this or the Bugatti, but without the technical stuff(I have only about 4 gears)... Anyway great MOC and I can't wait for the next one!!!

I absolutely love this. I am a true Ferrari fan and the 250 series are the true gt's. Although i am not a fan of the new technic style, i must say you captured the round shape very well. Truly good work. The only thing i miss is some detailled carburators in the engine bay, that should give some neat extra detail. Very good!

Awesome, never seen this car before, but you have well and truly captured the shape and lines. Like to say thanks as well for the excellent photography, it will allow me to create parts that I need to make for a project, this new style of technic is foreign to me, I can use the older style with ease, but this new design is trickier. I have the 8145 Ferrari and the 8294 excavator that I'm going to use to create my MOC, been putting it off as I don't know where to begin. I'd like to build a 2008 Holden Commodore SS Ute, if you have any tips or idea's they would be greatly appreciated. Enough said of that though. This MOC is amazing, cannot think of a better word to describe it. Do keep up the good work and am waiting in anticipation for your next creation. Cheers P.S. email is evan_188@hotmail.com if you do have any ideas/tips. Evan

Thanks! My one gripe about the pole reverser is that there's no way to attach it to a studless construction - and I didn't have any studded beams handy, so it's kinda just wedged in behind the passenger seat. I've only got one gear ring so that's out unless you want two-speed only. Gears were done the old-fashioned way by having fixed input and output shafts, and a sliding transfer shaft. I wouldn't have a clue how to use the gear rings, to be honest. Also, the 250 GTO is a narrow car, and I doubt very much I could stuff a gearbox in there using gear rings - all of the 5/6 speeders I've seen are at least 6 studs wide, if not more. I've got exactly *three* studs between the seats :P The front suspension is done with a normal beam with one of those angle connectors at one end, attached to a shaft on the chassis; the wheel end (upright) is one of those H-shaped gray connectors, which is secured to the beam at right angles by one end only so it can move, and I use a steering pushrod on the other free end. This is connected to a rack in the normal way. The shock absorber is attached to the main beam. There's no upper arm (seeing as the suspension movement is so small anyway, geometry changes are negligible), and the main advantage is the whole thing is so low that it can fit underneath the engine - and the top of the engine is still lower than the tops of the tires. The rear end has a diff in a cage, with shafts that are attached to floating arms (the green beams) to prevent front/back and left/right movement, and shock absorbers to allow vertical movement. The whole thing is attached to the drivetrain with universal joints.
Quoting JAYC . Woah,Here I thought I was good with Power functions,But you rock!!The car it self is awesome!I see you managed to get the perfect shape of the car and it looks great!That idea of the extension cable using the pole reverser is pretty smart.Also I would like to comment on two things,First thing...On the front suspension...How did you manage to getting working steering and suspension without the suspension arms?That's pretty smart!Also did you make your gear box without gear rings?if so, how did you accomplish that task?!

Wow! One of the most difficult cars to make ever. Amazing Technic features and wonderful (and accurate) bodywork. This is genuinely perhaps the best Technic Supercar on the net. 10/10. I can't see any way this could be made better. It would make an awesome set. Stunning : )

Outstanding car! and I think you're right, this is the only Ferrari 250 GTO I have seen here.
