One of the biggest lego 917 seen on internet.


- Shocks on 4 wheels
- Technic Flat 12 engine
- Steering
- Treillis chassis
- Lots of details in engine bay, cockpit, front bay. Most of the real car has been recreated in lego parts.
- But....no gearbox (sorry).


This car could be a "flagship" for a Lego/Porsche range, alonside a 962 or modern 911. It could easily be built with other color, as "Salzburg", Gesipa, Gulf John Wyer etc etc...
This one Shows the 71 version but it can easily be reconfigurate in 70 techspecs with a different rear engine cover, without shark fins.
As Porsche is on to lauch the 918 (shown as a 917 successor), this kind of lego set could be part of the merchandising for the new top range of the german car manufacturer.
It can also be a perfect gift for all 917 enthusiast over the world. 32 years after its last race, 917 is still in all memories and hearts. For sure, the most beautifull racecar of all time.....that could be yours at a huge 1/8 scale (length: 53 cm), lego made of.

Heart of the beast: the mighty flat 12 engine, type "912".

All what you can find on the real 917 will be find too on this one.
