Week TechVideo, 2009 #50 - One 1:7 Supercar

As it seems at least some of you also have interest about LEGO Technic Supercars...

So, I found this for you... A 1:7 scale Supercar, made by jamesbond0096 (Marvin G.).
Somehow it resembles the 8880 Supercar from the 90s, but it is definitely something different... Probably one of the most complete LEGO Technic Supercars I've ever seen.
A nice video indeed! Enjoy.

The car features:
  • All Wheel Drive (AWD)
  • 5-Speed Gearbox + Reverse
  • Working V12 Engine
  • Working Brakes for each wheel (handbrake + footbrake)
  • Electric Headlights
  • Differential Lock (for middle diff)
  • Pneumatic Convertible Roof, with onboard electric pump
  • Independent Adjustable Suspension (Lowrider)
  • Gullwing Doors

This is a large Technic car with very detailed and advanced functions. For instance it uses the old Flex System to command the wheel brakes and has an interesting convertible roof where the trunk opens first, the roof comes out and then the roof closes again.
But you may find a lot more from the YT video above, or the images and details at MOCpages.

Found also very interesting another Disk Brake system for Technic Cars, created by Marvin and explained at one of his MOCpages folders.

A nice creation, but as the author explains it wears the parts if taken into functional usage. Nevertheless I see some other ways for improvement and to make it useful.

Still, there are a lot more Technic Supercars out there. Stay tunned!

Awesome! All this model needs is a working accelerator pedal and it will be complete!

I'm surprised how he could fit all of that into a car of that size and with such precision, well done!
