Since Honda has entered WEC this year with 3 new prototypes, and won the 24 hour at Daytona Lego should definitely pick up Honda Licensing.
here are a couple pictures of my heavily modified 917K (stickers will be added once I am completely sure I wont change it again) it may not be obvious at first glance but the sides, and the tail are about the only parts that have not have been altered so far. The rest has been thoroughly reworked (even the chassis piece is gone) included are the mandated spare tire, and luggage (briefcase hidden inside the build)
I must say that I cannot stand the sticker front for the R8. While I do understand it was probably the best that Lego could do, it is the deciding factor for me not buying it.
@crazycarl What mods did you do on the Mustang?I'm sitting on one right now and am itching to build it.Just want to know what they are so I can tinker a bit.Thanks in advance.
...the stickers cause the front part of the car to look extremely accurate. But the rest of the body is still "LEGOified" and there is a bad contrast between these parts.
That's a really good point. I can cope with some proportions not being correct as minifigs are also not proportionate to RL people, but changes in levels of realism will cause some problems. Look at 75899: LaFerrari - the blockiness at the front looks somewhat at odds with the real car:
but it works because Lego sensibilities allow it. But a car that is too long or too narrow... that is something which can be fixed in Lego, so is not as acceptable.
PS: Where's the hyperlink button?

On my version of IE (patched, supported - I'm not running XP), I can't see any row above the comment box. Only by hovering my mouse can I see that a link to something is there (and the blank white background changes to light grey). How very odd.
Here's an image:
This is all to prove I'm not being thick! Thanks for letting me know.
The buttons workFor pretty much all the links
Lists make it complicatedand Format is not working.
