Ferrari 308 GTS
7 wide wheelbase (5 x 12 ground plate). Openable doors. Credits to Sabby M (use of panels as doors) and to Legohaulic (use of the technic axle with stud). Both was quite important here. The pop-up headlights (already used with the first supercar) are taken from somebody I don't remember, sorry. - More and better photos to come. Thanks for looking!
About this creation


The car is fully playable and very stable. It is based on exactly the same platform as the other 7 wide vehicles (1 x 12 + 4 x 12 baseplate). All measures between the wheels of these vehicles are identical, only front- and backends differ.

A strong 3-leveled middle beam provides for a high level of stability (another advantage of a 7 wide). There is room for it anyway which is necessary for the fig's arms. A roof is not required in terms of stability - thus you can convert each of these cars into, well, convertibles. The doors must consist of tiles or - as here - of panels since there has to be room for the fig's arms again.

On the other hand there are no seats, the figs are sitting right on the floor - this is necessary to keep the whole thing low enough not to "dwarf" the figs too much. But if you are allowed to ride a Ferrari - you don't ask for a seat, right? (Padding had to be removed from the seat to fit the less dwarf-like Tom Selleck into the car, so that's okay for the figs.)

I really like this :) The lights at the front are great, they give the model character :) 5/5

Que Magnum P.I. theme! Great MOC, a little more blocky then the real thing, but that is to be expected from a LEGO version. Good job on it, the headlights are a nice touch. Nice.

Thank you all very much, guys, glad you like it. @Gabor: Yes, I am dismantling the older ones. I used some elements of my first supercar here, as Marcel has recognized. But the basic construction and the frame are completely different. I am rather a builder who tries to improve a platform than to create something completely new with every MOC (see my homepage).

What a cool car! It looks very fast. I like the back, but the best are the headlights. A question: do you have all of your cars, or you have taken apart the older ones?

Thank you all very much guys, very glad you like it! I will add some better photos to show the openable stuff (@Austin), with and without driver ASAP (same for the Vette) - there has to be a ray of sunlight to do so, hope this will happen before spring ;-)

Haha that new picture is Priceless!
  January 23, 2012
Yeah, the new picture is cool! And he's to tall for the car, too, just like Magnum! I remember that you always could see his hair above the windscreen :-)) Thanks for that picture! :-))

Quoting Nils O. Wow that's a cool 308 GTS. Very cool shaping for the rather small scale! The doors look like they can be opened, please add a picture of that! A minifig would be great in it too, the best would be one with a moustache and a Hawaii shirt :-)) Great job! :-)) You could add it to the group "Ferrari Owners Club".
Thanks Nils, of course I will add some more photos - I just took some pictures when the rain stopped for a minute ;-) Since I have only a few minifigs, there is quite a lack of moustaches and of Hawaii shirts - but there is a basecap! Probably Thomas and Michael can go for a ride soon ;-) Thanks for the hint, I will add it to this group.

FAN-tastic! Some brilliant ideas with some gaps, which I might try my own hands on some day... -But the most inspiring is how you implemented Technic liftarms in the construction!

Where's Magnum?
  January 23, 2012
...Marcus you are so right. Ok the challenge is on - I will widen it and maybe try some 6 or 7 wides shortly :). Thanks for the inspiration :). These arches and wheels are very difficult to use with odd number wide cars- I've been experimenting. Happy days :).

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Exceptional work. I can't believe how accurate this is. Especially at the this scale. I love the back. My black semi is almost at the perfect scale to transport this, maybe i will try a few more 6 wides and build a trailer. Thanks for your comments.
Thanks a lot MortalSwordsman! I fear your semi is too small since this is a 7 wide, like all the others (7+ because of the town mudguards). It goes well with an 8w truck (like my pumper). But I deeply regret this - they would indeed look great together!
