1980 Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo
From one wacky race car to the next. After building my Peugeot 905 I decided to build another racer with an equally unique style. Enter this, the 1979-83 Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo. It was one of many Series-4 Group 5 racecars from the early '80's. FIA's regulations for the racing league stated that a car must retain the same hood, roof, and doors as the production version, therefore numerous manufacturers found a loophole and tacked on huge fender flares. This created some of the most distint looking race cars of all time such as the BMW M1 and Porsche 935. I originally started to build a Lancia 037, but after numerous design failures, I converted it to this Montecarlo. Also this time around, I changed up my backdrop to improve the contrast of the white car on the surface. Please enjoy!
About this creation
Front View.

More detailed than my last MOC, definitely. This one's a bit refreshing, not to mention I finally snapped some good pictures of a White car.

Side view.

Rear 3/4 view.

Aerial view. The Octan livery was added for the current LUGNuts building challenge rules.

Engine. 4-cylinder limited to 300hp by FIA Group 5 regulations. Still, with a car this light, it was quick.

Rear view. I just love the big gap on this car.

Doors open.

Interior, it's basic, but yeah, it's a racecar, so sue me!

This is LEGO contruction at its core! Simple basic bricks, no special things (!), and 100% hit for the important basic elemets of the model to be build. Everybody can definetely identify what was build! Outstanding!

Hi Dylan, beautiful work!!! This car is very accurate and detailled. When I got the mail I sought it was build at a bigger scale. The choice of an italian rally car is excellent for this LUGnuts Octan round and happily surprising for an american young man. It confirms your car culture is great.

Oh, a beauty! This is totally great! It looks very real as well. Good thing is that this car doesn't have much curves. Majority of blocky elements come in handy when you have to do them in LEGO. You also managed details like engine and some small parts very well indeed.

Nice! I too think the gap at the back looks cool. Great job

sweet car man! Love the octan logos you put on the car, could you check out my hot rod i made. please.

Spectacular work! The sweeping angles at the rear combined with the classic "Octan" logos and colors make for one of your best medium-scale cars so far. But is it just me, or do the colors make you want to order a pizza?

Great car! I love the front fender and rear greebles where the rear fender would be if this car had one. The side intakes are great as well... and the angling along the sides of the rear engine compartment. Heck, I like how this is exectued over the entire car... there isn't a single technique I don't like, it looks great! My one complaint is the slightly dark photography, you should probably touch the photos up a little digitally.
