Update 11/10/2014 : New front
About this creation
My last entry for Speedy September




PLEASE SUPPORT MY CREATION HERE, I WOULD BE VERY GLAD TO SEE IT AS AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET:








When I first saw the pictures of the I8, I was thinking “this is the car I need!”. Because I have not enough money (price = 120 000 euros; I need 119 999e to have the right money 8-D) I decided to build it as a Lego car.




The I8 is BMW new attempt to beat Porsche in their domain. This 3 cylinder Hybride sportscar has a very futuristic design (I saw 2 on the autobahn and I can admit this) and mind blowing engineering (laser lights). It is the future.




First attempt : (((pure catastrophe)))
It all started with a chassis (this one), then I tried to build the front, and it definitively looked like this . It was red, black and blue … 8-S I destroyed it immediately, but the chassis still exists.




Chapter two : New attempt
But I decided to not give up and had another try the other day with LDD this time (right pieces and right color scheme). After some hours of work, this came out.
The body : I really love the back, but the front is so/so. I played a lot with the color scheme (white-blue-black-grey). I think it worked. What do you think?
The interior : the lines of the real interior of the i8 are impossible to recreate at this scale in Lego. I tried something, and I’m happy with it.
Some notable details : there is a three cylinder engine recreated in the back. And there are working doors (those McLaren F1 styled doors).




I hope you liked my new creation. I thank you for watching, and a potential comment or/and rating! And please keep in mind that the i8 is one of the most difficult cars to build in Legos nowadays.
Kindly, XY EZ 8-)

Quoting Nick Barrett Far from easy to do, I'm sure! Nice try - a bigger scale might be needed for this one.
Thanks Nick! If I find the time, then yes I will build a bigger one... 8-)

Quoting sam the first I think the front is pretty good! I'd try a larger scale, at this scale, only Gandalf would get close, and he would have to use every spell in the book. ;D

Quoting Sven Jagdmann Hey Mate, this is a really nice Lego version of the I8. Too bad, it's innovative but really expensive. Saw it last year as prototype on the Autobahn and took some pics of it :) Keep up your great work!
Thanks Sven!! I also saw 2 i8s on the autobahn! It's a gorgeous car!! 8-)

Quoting Alex Sonny Very nice and you captured the shape well enough considering the scale. With such a fluent car design, you should really build bigger, so you can get most od those slopes right. Still, a considerable effort, especially on the front intakes.
Thanks Alex! I totally understand and I already had in mind to built a much bigger one, at the scale of the chassis I prepared. But it would be with ldd, because with real bricks, the at would be red ..... 8-)
