Ferrari F40 LM . It's the first time I've posted 2 MOCs in one day...and don't expect that to happen again. Here's what you waited for: the legendary Ferrari F40 LM. . Before I started building it, I thought, "It doesn't look too hard. I can probably finish it in a week or so." But after struggling with it for about a month I can tell you that this is not an easy car to build at all (unless you're Sven Bode & Jens Matuscheck or Firas Abu-Jaber). Actually, this isn't my first F40. The first large scale car (14 studs wide) I ever built was a F40...but it wasn't that good. Later, I built it again. I left my comfort zone so I built this 16 studs wide...this is the biggest car I've ever built. It's 16 studs wide, 38 studs long, and it weighs 2 pounds and 2.7 ounces. Most people think that the Ferrari F40 was built mainly to celebrate Ferrari's 40th birthday. But it really was mainly built to compete with Porsche's 959 which was the world's fastest production car until the F40 was built. The Ferrari F40 has a top speed of 201 MPH while the LM version has a top speed of more than 225 MPH. The LM version was built in the late 80s and was raced in the GT class where it was an instant success. Both F40s are powered by a 2.9 liter turbocharged V8. The front view. This was probably the hardest part to build, partly because I built this car 16 studs wide. I must have rebuilt the nose 5 times and a countless number of modifications. The side view. The rear. Unlike the "regular" F40, the LM has 2 exhausts instead of 3...which, for me seems odd. You'd think that race car= more power= more exhaust. Details Vents. The sponsors: Acer and Shell. The rear view mirror. Air intakes. I used some electrical tape for part of the black belt line. The doors can open. Make a gif The engine cover can open. This was the 2nd hardest part to build on the car. Here's the "engine." You'll find out what the battery pack is for later...so you'll just have to keep scrolling down... You can see through the rear vents. Everything is open. The bird's eye view. The interior has everything you could ask for...just don't ask for air conditioning, power windows, cushioned seats, carpets...etc. Here's the battery pack again. Here's how I squeezed it in. Here's the moment you've been waiting for! It's got power lights! Lights are essential for racing at night... Here's how I did part of the wiring. Here's a size comparison with my Maserati Gran Turismo Convertible. Here's a few pictures of it next to my Ferrari Mosaic.
