Sports Tuner

Since the rise of the car tuning culture, many people have been customizing their fast cars into faster cars. This nimble looking vehicle is based on the popular Japanese all-wheel-drive rally cars during the 1990s. This car is fitted with stylish wheels and a giant spoiler.

Ever since I got my hands on my first video game console, I have been obsessed with a game based on street racing (street racing is bad). Because the game allowed cars to be customized (and the game was really good), I quickly became a fan of tuners, and like many people dreamed about customizing my very own car some day. I think building this sporty looking noise maker will warm the hearts of many people of my time...or maybe not...

This car is 6 studs wide, and about 9 centimetres long including the spoiler. It is 4.5 centimeters tall and the mini-figure sits upright. The front and rear bumpers can be easily removed along with the roof and the spoiler. The interior colour can be changed by replacing 5 Lego bricks (one is a bit difficult to remove). The design is relatively durable if no vital bricks are removed, which includes the bottom plate if changing interior colour. 

This model can fit one mini-figure. The hood, windshield along with roof can tilt forward with a built in joint. This feature is probably useful because the roof height is really low and I barely tell if the roof is actually hitting the mini-figure’s head. So a 1x4 can be easily added to improve “mini-figure safety.”

Thanks for reading all this (if you actually did) and I hope you enjoyed these pictures (if you saw them).
