8815+8820+8024=red race car

gelkstergelkster MN, USAMember Posts: 489
So I got this (dismantled as requested) in a recent score but cannot find directions online to build the red car pictured. I checked my big 3 sites (Bricklink, Brickset, peeron) for links/clues but got zilch. Can anyone direct me to the manual?

    It's posted here under the 8000-8099 category. This is my go to site for older instructions.

    Good design. The whole design remembers me of the Lamborghini Countach.

    Heh, still have it built from my childhood years, very dusty, and including the 9V motor from back in that day, and a technic fig inside!

    Why did I click on a thread with a Countach in it? For the rest of the day I'll now have wistful yearnings for an official Countach set which I suspect will never be made - is it too much to ask that they choose one from Countach, Diablo, Miura, Aventador or Murcielago? I'm aware of #8169 but it's long out of production. It's not like they don't have a deal with VW Audi is it?

    I've got plans to a really slick Miura I found on Flickr a year or two ago. Still need to get parts gathered for it though.

    not sure if you are into BrickLinking custom MOCs but I have been watching this builder on Rebrickable and he has quite a few good car designs, including a Countach.  I personally have not ordered any oh his instructions yet but looked interesting...

    Here is a pic from his Instagram...

    Thanks for that link - I'll check it out, although looking at the A pillars it doesn't look like he's using legal connections...

    After re-reading this thread I dug out our #8169... not a bad rendition and fits pretty well with the Ferrari and Mini size-wise... I know we have the Polizia version #8214 around somewhere if I look hard enough.

    Now you're just taunting me! :-) If I could do the headlights & taillights without resorting to stickers I'd think about bricklinking that one - it's pretty good for a decade old set.
    The urge to try and MOC it is almost outweighing my lack of skills in actually doing so, but the vision in my head with all the new parts we have could not possibly translate to the actual result. :-(
