Top Gear: The ten greatest Lego replica cars

You have to give it to TLG, they certainly know how to boost their brand by picking iconic models that create a media frenzy. I've never seen so many gadget, IT and male dominated websites talk about Lego so much.

    TG's journalism in that article isn't great either - they make some comment saying the only scale cars Lego has made are the Mini and the Camper Van, ignoring all the Ferraris, the two Lamborghinis, the VW Beetle and several others! What's worse is they then feature the Polizia Lamborghini as someone's own creation...

    Anyhow, rant aside, Lego have certainly done the right thing here media-wise.

    I kinda likes the vintage cars Lego produced back in the early '70s. e.g. #395

    Nice link, but the main thing it proves is that Lego is a pretty poor medium for doing cars. Interestingly, the two most successful lego cars of recent times have been Ecto 1 and the VW Minibus. But in both cases its gadgets and interior details that give them their charm.

    Apparently they have never seen any of Firas Abu-Jaber's cars, because his work is the top of the food chain...
