Owning an actual Porsche 911 GT3 RS is out of the price range for many enthusiasts, but a new Lego kit lets you park a massive example of Porsche’s road-going racecar on your desk. At $299.99, it is certainly not cheap, but this looks to be one of the coolest LEGO models ever.
Inside the box you’ll discover a special collector’s book chronicling the history of LEGO Technic and Porsche GT cars, together with 4 original-design rims bearing the RS emblem. The sets of elements are boxed, and the building sequence gives an insight into the real-life vehicle’s assembly process. The model features detailed, orange bodywork, red suspension springs, detailed headlights, taillights, brake calipers and rims with low-profile tires.
The accessible cockpit features a detailed dashboard, working gearbox, paddle shift steering wheel, racing seats and a glove compartment containing a unique serial number. Other functions include opening doors and hood with storage compartment and suitcase, and an opening rear lid that houses a detailed flat 6 engine with moving pistons.
You definitely need ample free time to finish this kit, though. The 2,704 pieces let you build a working replica and the finished model measures about 22 inches long and nearly 10 inches wide.
