Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona (4-Wide)
My 4-wide version of the iconic GT from good old Italy.
About this creation
Last summer Starscream Soundwave (SSSW) and The LegoNoitAll (TLNIA) asked me to be judge in a MOCoff between both of them. The task was to build a 4-wide car model without using "cheese wedges" (1x1x2/3 or 1x2x2/3 slopes). I also had the "job" to select which model they should build. So I started turning the pages of a big book about automotive design to search for inspiration. When I saw the "Daytona" I knew that this would be the car to be built.

When they built their models I couldn't resist and built one myself. You can see their results here and here. I also posted a first preview picture of my version on flickr, but still wasn't really satisfied with it. So I kept on building new versions. I wasn't satisfied until I tried to use the top section of my Porsche 911 for the Daytona. So this is it:



A long, long design process...


Side view:


And the rear end:
No space for four tail lights, so two will have to do.

The air intakes on the hood:
SSSW and TLNIA both made them the same way. I think there is just no better way to build this detail in this scale.

Some more pictures with more "wide angle"...






The rivals:
Meet the Cobra.

This is my 4-wide Lego Ferrari 365 GTB/4 "Daytona". I hope you like it :-))

Ich antworte mal auf Englisch für alle hier: The tires are the normal "Tiny Turbo" tires (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=50945). The basic rims are the "Y-spoke" versions (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=93595). These ones here are original Lego parts which have been chromed later. There are some Bricklink shops which offer this kind of parts (just search for shops with "chrome" in the shop name).----- Thank you. These rims I know, but I've never brought in compound with the Chrome.
