1997 Volkswagen W12 Syncro
Hooray! A new large scale from me! After almost a month of tinkering and rebuilding, I've finished a 1:17-ish scale version of the Volkswagen W12 Syncro Concept from 1997. I chose to do the yellow and blue version because I wanted to challenge myself. Plus it's adds more color to my plain slection of red and black cars. PLease enjoy! This car was a pain in the neck to build!
About this creation
Front 3/4 view. Notice the racing-style suspension on display by the fron window.

Top 3/4 view. The roof of this car was the hardest part to construct.

Side view. Sorry, this photo is a bit dark. But anyways, you can see how I accomplished the bubbly cockpit design. Some call it cheating, but the legos do stay attached, even in weird positions!

Back 3/4 view. This is the most accurate part on this LEGO model. Just check out the reference photo down below.

Another back view. Goodness, I love Volkswagens!

All open including the scissor doors!

The famous VW W12 engine brought to life! In LEGO form!

Interior. Sadly I didn't have enough blue for the entire seats, so a little black was used.

Another view of the interior. I apologize for using a sticker, but I thought it worked out pretty well.

Refernce of the rear of the Syncro.

Reference photo of the front. I love how this car "smiles" at you!

The coolest car VW has ever built. Unfortunately it never made it into serial production. I canīt tell what I like most about your creation. I think it is the rear section, because you can hardly tell if it is the real or LEGO one!

Quoting Raphael G Dboy, forgive me for not reviewing earlier. My laptop was running like crap yesterday, and especially my internet connection :P My mouse wouldn't work. But now it does, so I can say that this is purely, well. Hmm. I don't know how to put it. Let's see, oh, OK, I found the perfect word for it. FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!! Is the word! Yes, I can't look at this without drooling. I don't really get it with the roof, I think you could have done better on the roof, and the headlights could have been smoother. Other than those small details, this is still awfully realistic! :) btw the chromey agents theme engine bars look really cool here. the back lights are sweet, and pretty realistic, and I really like how you squeezed that little 1x1 yellow tile there for the rear diffusers. That adds an awful lot of character. Anyways, the interior is pretty sweet too. I think that placing the steering wheel in exactly the right place is awfully hard, even in large-scale, and I think you really nailed it here! Does the real one have a light blue interior, though? And how your dog chewed up that 1x2 slope that makes the seats, well no offense but that's kinda hilarious! ;p LOL! Anyways keep up the great work d boy, peace :) >>Raphy<<
Thanks man! And yes, the interior is blue on the real one. Go to google images and search "VW W12 Syncro Interior" You'll see what I mean :P

I have been looking at the main pic whenever I get onto MOCPages for like at least a week, so today I said "Oh well, might as well check it out." I had never heard of this car before...and it was made 12 years ago...and the front shot angle isn't incredible appealing...but dude, this is just as cool as any car I've ever seen on MOCPages. Great work. Just incredible. Great details and shape and front and rear and interior and engine and color and wheels. That's all, -matthew- PS. You are now solidly on my Favorite Builders List.

Simply radical! By the way, I don't call the roof cheating, if it works it fine in my opinion

Absolutely amazing, first time I've heard of and seen this car, nice shape and colour, quite surprising this type of design from VW, attention to details is good, the interior isn't such an issue though, it still has an aesthetic quality and it's functional. Keep up the amazing work mate...Looking forward to your next MOC. Evan

This is awesome, Dylan... the detail is incredible. This is very realistic. I love the engine design & detail. I have redesigned my old LSX, & some of our engine ideas are similar.

Quoting JAYC . Well Dylan,I must say...this has to be one of your best!!!I have one small really little complaint however....It does look a little plain...Maybe one black stripe on the side or something?If you were going for the accuracy of the car then never mind.The front first of all is amazing!!I love how it looks,It has a aggressive look to it!That back looks very awesome!Very accurate as well! The roof thingy Looks very sleek,I love how you built that!Good parts use.However the interior looks like it needs a little work,or maybe it's just from the angle you took the pic with.All in all,Still one of your best for sure!Sadly, I won't be posting for the contest...Well unless i can make a new car in about 2 days... ;D
Thanks! I was going for realism :D and the interior just looks bad because I took poor photos...I took them outside when it was like 26 degrees and really really windy so the only thing I could think about was running back inside, lol

Awesome! I'm not very familiar with this car, but looks like you nailed the shape. The details are fantastic, along with the nice, large scale. You should build more of these large scale cars, I think. Lookin' good!

I think this is really good. However, I think the headlights don't really have the same shape as the real one. I don't say it is not good, it's only a tip to improve your model.
