Inculcate the passion of engineering in your teenager by gifting them a 911 GT3 RS Lego Technic to enable them to build the legendary car – a real challenge made up of 2704 parts. The aerodynamic body made from this kit is just as faithful to the original as is the interior. Be it the racing seats, dashboard or glove compartment with unique serial number – the cockpit of the 911 in the Lego model has been modeled with a great deal of attention to detail.
One extra-special detail is the Porsche PDK dual-clutch transmission with four gears and shift paddles on the steering wheel. The orange super sports car fitted with red axle springs, brake calipers and rims in original design additionally features special low-profile tyres. Under the hinged luggage compartment lid is a storage compartment complete with suitcase.
The assembled Lego Technic Porsche is in 1:8 scale. It is 17 cm high, 57 cm long and 25 cm wide. Also contained in the set is a booklet with comprehensive background information on the development of the Lego Technic 911 GT3 RS. For the first time, the elements of the individual assemblies are also packed in their own separate boxes and, together with the detailed building instructions, give some insight into the assembly process of the actual vehicle.
A real sports car is more than the sum of its parts. The same is true for this tremendously authentic-looking version made of plastic. It’s more than a model. It’s a work of art and a fascinating experience. The concept itself is exceptional and even the packaging is special – for the first time, the elements of the individual assembly groups are packed in separate boxes. Together with the comprehensive construction manual, they give insight into the assembly process of the original.
Even the stages of construction are similar to those of the real thing, including the marriage, when the engine and transmission are joined in the chassis. A minimum age of sixteen is recommended. There’s no mention of an upper age limit, though, because the younger folks will clearly not be the only ones poring over those 2,704 plastic parts. There are 57 centimeters of high technology waiting to be assembled.
