Ferrari 458 Italia (Red and White)
Well, here is the project that I have been working on the past few months. The bulk of the building was done in January, and since then I've been waiting on Bricklink orders and trying to take some decent photos. Now I know, I know, I already made a 458, But I just couldn't help myself from trying it again after several years of staring at the car. It's not that I didn't like the first model, I just wanted to try it differently. Borrowing heavily from the techniques of Malte Dorowski, an unbelievably creative individual (the "Porsche God" himself), the style of this car is different from what I've done in the past. While certain things definitely work much better on this car, there are aspects of my old design I wish I could have incorporated here. That being said, here (and I apologize in advance for taking too many) are the pictures:
About this creation

First, some general shots of the car:

























Now some shots of the opening doors, boot and engine cover:

















Official 458 luggage set for the boot:



The headlights:



For the first time with this model, I was able to include the brake discs as well as the calipers; if you look closely, you will see the dark gray brake discs behind the rims:



This was accomplished by using large Technic steering wheels as rims, and assembling the rest as shown here:



Next some views of the Blu Scuro/Carta di Zucchero interior (notice the carbon fiber trim and the paddle shifters on the steering wheel!):







And the 4.5 Liter, V8 engine for which the car is named:



I love this shot, a view right over the engine to the front:



Some details of the rear diffuser, and the brick-built Italian license plate:





And what's this? It seems a white one has joined for a race!



On your mark, get set, go!



Some shots of the white version:















And the custom black and white leather interior:



Amazingly, my Ferrari mosaic is still complete, so I figured some group shots would be nice:







As well as some group shots with their die-cast counterparts (and custom Hotwheels cars)





I love the style of the available racing seats offered with the 458 Italia, and even though I had originally planned to use standard seats in the white car, I ended up building the racing style for both, just for fun:





Finally, (and thanks for sticking with me, if you made it this far. If you skipped to the end, I won't blame you!), a final picture to leave you with



Thanks for viewing! As always, any comments or ideas are welcome.
Also, again, credit to Malte Dorowski for his curvy techniques, and a special thanks to BrickPicks and A Lot Of Bricks of Bricklink for great service and selection.

the 458 Italia is a beautiful car, and you've done a fantastic job here! great.

This is amazing! I especially love the way you used the hollow tubes and clips to make a curved edge, and the brake discs were very clever.

I'm a HUGE fan of Lego and cars so I have looked at some Lego 458's already and yours is just simply THE best. Love it. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE could you give instructions(preferably LDD [Lego Digital Designer]) because I would really appreciate if you could show me and many others how to make such pieces of art, and it would make everyone of us improve in the art of building.

@LNIA Yes, I did that - it's to scale with the real one; but when you build in LEGO you sometimes have to alter the proportions to make it look right. Trust me. Even high-end 1/18 diecast manufacturers do that sometimes. -LB Jr.

Quoting Lego Builders I had no idea you were back, Ryan! I got my new Enzo to about 95% completed, then I realized the proportions were a bit off, so I think I'm going to start over. -LB Jr.
I like to think I didn't really leave, I've just been insanely busy lately. I've finally had some to build recently though. Too bad about the Enzo, I know that feeling. Just keep at it, I'd love to see it!

Quoting Achintya Prasad Truly staggering work, here! I just watched the Top Gear episode with this car being featured (road trip across America), and this looks unbelievably accurate! I do hope you are planning on releasing something new soon; MOCpages could use some quality MOCs like this one.....
Thanks! I actually have a car nearly ready to post, stay tuned...
  July 16, 2013
Haha, LB JR, that's why i always take the minute or two to get the dimensions of the car and put them to scale :P i learned it the hard way...

Quoting Kevin Dempsey Beautiful MOCs! I know its a little late but i think it would be cool if you built a 2-tone red with a black roof!
Thanks, Kevin! It actually is not too late, the red one is still together and I could pretty easily switch the roof. Hopefully I will get a chance to do it and I'll post some pictures.

I wish I knew what Firas was up to as well; your guess is as good as mine. As for me, I have several projects in the works. Several cars and several large-scale projects, just not enough time on my hands!

Hi Ryan. Yes, that's too bad that you had to take apart your cars. They're really cool (especially the F1). I hope your big project won't take as long as my Maserati transporter to build. My Maser is, I'd say, 95% complete, which doesn't seem too bad; but it's been like that since late April (or maybe early May); and first I started building during winter break. It's on hold because of school, lack of money, and other non-LEGO stuff. But I plan on finishing it up after the MocOlympics, as well as updating my 458 Spider and finishing my Fiat 500 Abarth (which I never really finished the right side of the car; that's why I only showed the left side in the photos. ;-0). Then after that (probably during December) I'll start work on my [planned] RC Ferrari 458 GT3. I'm hoping to build it in 20 wide (excluding the wheel arches). So how wide do you think the wheel arches should be, as they're lots wider than on the regular 458? I hope you will post soon...it's weird for MOCpages to be without you and Firas (thankfully Sven & Jens are back!). :-) It's kind of weird...my first year on MOCpages I was posting large scale cars like crazy, and this year I haven't posted many at all. I guess it's either my cars take longer to build (due to me adding more details) or school work is getting heavier. Or maybe both. I hope you are well. -LB Jr.

Hey, Thanks for the comment on my Ford GT, btw i made a Ferrari 458 Spider while i was waiting for my parts for a 71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda. so can you take a look at it and tell me what you think Thanks! http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/339996 P.S. I have a little brother on mocpages called Lego Kid 173, so can you take a look at his ferraris, Thanks!

Quoting Lego Builders Congratulations on 100, Ryan! Ah, so I'm guessing that your McLaren F1 is no more? I plan on building one in the not-so-near future; but a racing version, perhaps. I think I know what your "long term project" is. ;-) I, too, plan on starting another car (this time in XL scale...20+ wide...or maybe a little less...? Not sure yet) in a couple months. I haven't started built a car since...oh...wow...April...? But I'll be back with a new car soon (hopefully). -LB Jr.
Hey, thanks! Sadly, no, the McLaren is no more. Most of it is now part of the white 458 (and the red one ate up most of my FXX). I'd love to see an F1 from you; there are surprisingly few on MOC pages it would seem. As for my bigger project, I finally inventoried all the pieces and now I just need to go through and actually order the ones I need. I think it would be really cool if you built a 20+ wide car, they are very fun to do. My XL Enzo, FXX and Ford GT were all some of my most fun to build cars. The only problem is you run out of pieces a lot quicker! And I know what you mean, it's been a while since I built anything as well, time flies. I was hoping to build this summer, and I was just really busy, though I promise, I'll make something as soon as I can!

Quoting Sven Bode & Jens Matuschek Hey Ryan... first of all: mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa for not commenting earlier on. See, I wasn't that much into LEGO the last months. Anyway, my jaw literally dropped to the floor when I saw this beauty. There are so many innovative techniques in this whole creation... the lines of her are just incredible! When I look at my cars they seem to be built out of bricks. Sure, they are built out of bricks but I mean those brick-shaped bricks... ;) Maybe one day in near future I finally finish my (not yet started) 458 project. And I know: to get a convincing result I will have to take many glances on yours. Dang! So, what's next? The FF? The F12berlinetta? Whatever it'll be, you'll never fail to impress! Best wishes, Jens PS: Comment 100!
Thanks for such kind words! I would love to see a 458 from you, as it is definitely one of my favorite cars (in case you couldn't tell!). Any other big projects coming up? As for me, FF and F12 are definitely on my to-build list, and I have another, larger project which may or may not be completed soon depending on time and bricklink orders...I know very well how easy it is to get caught up in other things

  September 5, 2012
Quoting TheLegoNoitAll . how many other cars did you have (in about this scale) when you built it?
I had one other, which was quickly scavenged for pieces while I was building these two; my collection is relatively small.

I know I've already commented on this, but I just have to say again how brilliant it is. You've included literally everything from the real car, from the brakes to the headlights. The shaping is perfect, especially on the front. The headlights are just incredible though, they look exactly like the ones on the 458. This is one of the best builds on the whole of the MOCpages, just mind blowing!

Hi Ryan, hope you are well. I know I have commented on this before but I just had to look at it again. The roofline is sooo good. Such a shame that the like system crashed as this deserved 100. I know it’s not about ‘likes’ but this (and you) deserve it big time. Thanks for your recent support of my mocs. It is always a pleasure to receive comments from you. Any plans for a future moc? I have finally finished my GT40 (not posted it yet I need some time to photo it) thanks for your words of advice/support. As you know I am more of a studded builder but I am going to try another smooth car soon. Hope your studies are going well? Talk soon :D

Wow, this is incredibly good! your representation of such a difficult and swoopy car is spectacular but as always with legos, could be a little better, IMO the roof is a bit to tall and the shape is slightly off, the taillight section is a tad off too, not that i could do it better, just some friendly critiquing. it is still a fantastic model and you did very well, especially with the wheels. 5/5 doesn't do it justice.

Very nifty! And there's 2 of them! =O I really like the the back and side bit turned out, all that cheese is excellent. I'm not entirely sold by the front, though most of it looks good. The front's good, though, just not amazing or anything. Like 4.99999 / 5. =P The interiors are both very great, especially the shifters and consoles. Very neat looking and colorful.

Seriously?! Did you HAVE to post this? Gee, every time I try to make a really good MOC, someone beats me to it. Just joking. :0 Your old one was already super good and this one is even better! I quite like the way you were able to bring out the curves on the side; it has a different "interpretation" of the curves and in some areas, it looks better than your old version. I'm not sure if I'm fond of the new headlights (I understand why you made them with 1 by 1 plates). Maybe it's just a matter of taste. I do, however, like the fact that the headlights no longer has that odd gap that you had on your old 458. I've also found a way to make the front similar to your old one without having the gap. The side profile is really, nice (okay - extremely amazing) but I feel like the front nose area (with Dorowski's cheese technique) looks rather odd and the rear pillars look a tad short (add 1/2 a stud?). But I really think it's just me. The rear is GREATLY improved! I like how there's no longer that 1/2 plate gap! Sorry for being so particular. I do truly think it's WAY better than mine! You are so amazing, Mr. Ferrari! Eh? Fond of the 458 Italia? I should say! You made three! I am also quite fond of it too. Mine should be posted once I get the contest results (probably mid-March). Keep up the great work! @DeTomaso - You really like to rub it in, huh? :) BTW, you need to join the MocAthalon group (not just the team) and sign up if you haven't already. Sorry if I was unclear. ~Lego Builder Jr.

Quoting Joost Cumps (I do like the 458 as the most beautiful sportscar ever made, does it show ? :-) )
Maybe...although if you couldn't tell from my collection, I'm rather fond of the car myself!

Well, I felt bad when I saw he was planning on posting one, but at that point, mine were already half-built, and his is the Spider version at least so hopefully he will forgive me! As for Firas, I would love to see either the 458 or the F40, or anything new, really!

Well then I am quite jealous! Saw an F430 Spider once and a couple of Californias, but that's about it

Wow, that's awesome! The design is very close to perfect, especially the shape of the side panel. My favourite detils are the seats and the wheel construction. Great job! :-))

The capture of the elegant forms, and the details are fascinating! Most i like the defusor, and the lights, but the curves of the body are also real great! The interior- style and colour-sheme of the red one makes my eyes shine. Congratulation to your new Ferrari.

I can't believe how fantastic this came out. You got the shape exactly right, you get the feeling of the modern-goodlooking-perfectionist-best on the road-supercar s-p-o-t-o-n!. This is the best t-h-e b-e-s-t ! you can get in this scale! (I do like the 458 as the most beautiful sportscar ever made, does it show ? :-) )

You've outdone yourself here Ryan! These are brilliant! Maltes technique has worked wonders with the shape. I have a suspicion that Firas is building this at the moment and i'm not sure he could do much better. Well done to the "Ferrari master" ;-)

WOW, your Ferraris are absolutely great, full of YourOwnTecnic the shape are perfect, I love all the details, the brakes are heavymetal. The picture with the different white 458 are a beauty. Keep your great Artworks!

The engine looks fantastic! I like the white model! 5-5 :-)

Hi Ryan, they are absolutely fantastic. No need to apologise for the amount of photos. There is so much to say - I love the hood especially but the interior is also excellent. Great wheel technique and I love the bag. The shape is perfect.
