    LEGO’s creator site has a GTI kit pop up pretty regularly, but the beauty of LEGO is that you don’t need to wait for the company to release a kit. If you have a box full of LEGO and some time, you can make your own GTI. Just like this person on YouTube has done. The MkII GTI uses only a few...

    LEGO has just announced its latest Speed Champions set: the 180-piece 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0.

    For all the fidelity of the LEGO Bugatti Chiron, it fails in one important aspect. It isn’t actually an automobile since it isn’t able to make itself move. But Donut Media is here to fix that. In this video, they attempt to make the 1/8th scale LEGO Chiron go 36.2 mph (which is 1/8th of 261...

    If that prototype Quattro just below on the front page is a little too much, or maybe you just don’t have the garage space, then this might be more up your alley. Lego’s latest product idea is a replica of the Audi Sport Quattro that won Pikes Peak in 1987. The Pikes Peak was a bit of a last...
