Just reading through our past articles here in The Brick Show will easily tell you that LEGO, and its fandom, love cars. The brand has a dedicated car theme in Speed Champions, and many of its Technic sets are speedy vehicles. Automobile love is plain in many best-selling LEGO lines.

If however, you’re interested in making brick-built cars outside of the established LEGO products, then this upcoming book is for you. Co-written by veteran LEGO book contributors, “How to Build Dream Cars with LEGO Bricks” will help its readers do exactly as the cover says.


Mattia Zamboni (“Amazing Vehicles,” “Tiny LEGO Wonders”) joins forces with designer George Panteleon to present detailed instructions on how to assemble 12 sweet high-performance cars out of LEGO. These guides include LEGO-piece list, step-by-step illustrations, and even an info sheet of the cars in question:

  1. Bugatti Atlantic Type 57SC
  2. Corvette Stingray C3
  3. Datsun 240Z
  4. Dodge Charger R/T ’70
  5. Ferrari 458 Italia
  6. Ferrari F40
  7. Ford GT
  8. Ford Mustang GT Fastback ‘67
  9. Lamborghini Countach
  10. Pagani Zonda Cinque
  11. Porsche 911 Turbo
  12. Shelby Cobra 427 S/C

The resulting car builds are smaller than LEGO Speed Champions (can’t fit minifigure drivers) but are uncannily accurate in details and contours to their inspirations. Panteleon and Zamboni achieved that effect through the seamless mixing of traditional LEGO bricks with stud-less Technic parts.


“How to Build Dream Cars with LEGO Bricks” is a paperback reference book and is now available in both US and UK editions of Amazon for $13.38 and £15.26 respectively.
