Product Idea

Audi R8

Hello Speed Champions fans,


my son asked me to build a white Audi R8. Both of us like the Speed Champions sets, therefore I choosen this scale. It is a studless build from standard lego elements and modified City wheels are used instead of Speed Champions ones to keep the height to length ratio more realistic similarly to my earlier ideas.


The front of this car is iconic and it was a real challenge to recreate it in this small size. I made lots of versions and I think the actual one with a tricky solution is the best.


I tried more solutions to the black side blades too, the actual one was inspired by "LEGO Audi R8 instructions (MOC #96)" by "Jerry Builds Bricks" on Youtube, however I modifed it a bit as I wanted tilted blades similarly to the real ones.


Only one sticker is used which is the Audi logo on the front as I'm generally not a fan of the parts with stickers, because of the lack of flexibility in using them with other builds.


The set includes the minifigure shown on the main picture. It comes form the set 75873 but with red helmet.


I have added a rear wing to make the car more dynamic. It differs from the custom Audi wings, but I think it fits to the style of the car and to the side mirrors.



It can be combined with my other submissions:




I hope you enjoy this car. Many thanks for your support!
