Land Rover Defender 110 Scale Lego Model is Crazy Cool
Lego replicas are usually pretty lame, but this Land Rover Defender 110 proves that a legitimate scale car model can come out of the little plastic pieces with shocking accuracy.
In fact, the 1:8.5 version has everything you would expect, thigns you wouldnít and some stuff beyond what most would imagine. The equipment list includes a functioning differential, five-speed transmission with reverse, a long-travel suspension, functional disc brakes, two- and four-wheel drive modes and more.
The body easily detaches from the chassis so you can see the drivetrain from all angles and the steering wheel with the same number of turns-to-lock as the actual truck. Itís no small task to build, though. There are 2,800 parts in total, including seven motors. It can travel up to 2.5 mph and is operated via remote control.
Not a native Lego build, the replica came from an enthusiast, but thereís a chance you can have one too. The company picked it up and says it will offer a kit if it gets 10,000 votes. The video below shows the car in full detail, which is really the only way to recognize how impressive it is.
