Technic.LEGO.com Blog - Designing the 8070 Supercar

Uwe Wabra writes about the design process of the 8070, Supercar.
And so we also got to know who has designed the latest LEGO Technic supercar.

"... In the LEGO Technic 8070 Supercar, we have tried to use inspiration from all these different areas. We ended up building a model type that is a muscle car with a V8 engine in the front, distinctive wing doors and a hidden spoiler. We worked hard to make the curves right and designing the angles of the supercar to be as authentic as possible.


Building the 8070 LEGO Technic Supercar has been real enjoyment right from the beginning - finding inspiration, identifying the type of car, developing the functions and finalizing the design. It’s been a truly inspiring and challenging building experience and I hope you will enjoy building it as much as I did."

Yes great design, but I really cant understood why designer make such ugly rear end.Battery box could be easily covered by openable panel.

Only the rear end of the car is the reason why I still did not buy this car.

I must be one of the few people who does not mind the backside of the car. I think it's a suitable compromise, though I also think it should have been designed without a motor so that it sold cheaper. Maybe have made the PF optional.

I too don't mind the back end so much, but I don't like the seats. They just don't look right at all.
