The Black Dragon is a sports car or a roadster with:
- V8 engine
- Hood opening
- Scissor doors with dumped shocks.
Unlike Johnl, I see them closer to Butterfly doors, because they also move outwards, unlike Scissor doors, which only move up
- Convertible rooftop (incredibly realistic mechanism)
- 5+R gearbox
- 4-wheel independent suspension
- HOG and realistic steering wheel
This is a totally unconventional LEGO Technic car, which exploits some different approaches to achieve the body form. Namely the extensive use of angle-connectors which confer its very unique forms.
Realize this car uses the old Technic black panels in a way, we probably haven't imagined possible anymore. The red contour line is also very eye-catching and distinctive, but this car has lot of other supreme design details: curved windshield topline, distinct and innovative gearbox lever design, incredibly achieved doors design and also very well done tail lights (color, form and tilt), just to mention a few.
You may find a few other images from John's BS folder, inclusive some renders with the chassis building steps.
But as you may expect, also Blakbird didn't resist to build, model, render and do some animations from another unofficial LEGO Technic Supercar!...
For the case you want to build this model, Blakbird may share his CAD model from the Black Dragon, if this is also the will of Jovel.
