Super Super Cars
No, I didn't got stutterer... but we must distinguish among so called Super Cars...
Former LEGO Designer Nathanaël Kuipers who developed 8674, 8271, 8292 LEGO official Technic sets and shown us about two years ago his Technic Concept Car . Since the beginning he developed the concept around modularity requirements and interchangeable functional blocks (unibody frame, front and rear suspensions; gearbox; engine - front or rear mont; front, rear, or AWD, etc...).
Such concept once achieved in its individual modules, opens endless possibilities. Simply genial and gorgeous!
The original Concept Car, was not a concept in its own, but Nathanaël has meanwhile proven why he called it modular and produced another car based on the same concept.
Concept 4x4 is a Jeep based on some of the same modules (V12 engine and 5+R speed gearbox), a few other compatible ones made new (suspension with higher ground clearance; off-road tires; 4WD with center diff; adjustable seats, etc...) and an almost unchanged frame.
An example from how much variation can be introduced on the same platform and how flexible the concept is.
Enjoy the photos and find more info at MOCpages or Nathanaël's Brickshelf gallery!
This another great example where nothing is missed and what it takes to become a real Technic car Super!
Last but not the least and because it is always good to have a face to put on a name, just look at this photo from Nathanaël, standing in front of one of his LEGO official designs (8292, Cherry Picker).
This guy should still be at TLG playing with our future toys, don't you agree?
