LEGO fans who also love awesome cars were the target of last month’s latest Creator Expert release, the legendary Ford Mustang (10265). The number of build options for the set, and the extras that were had during purchase, made it a sweet acquisition for collectors.
Still, some might had hoped that the Mustang was interpreted in another, more complex line. We need look no further than LEGO Technic for samples of magnificent automobiles. Let’s recall the Chevy Corvette ZR1 (42093), Porsche 911 RSR (42096), and the car/myth/legend Bugatti Chiron (42083). A LEGO builder just put together a Technic rendition of a particular Ford Mustang variant.
Lachlan Cameron has recreated the trusty ride of professional rally and stunt driver Ken Block from the Hoonigan Racing Division. His creation is the mighty Ford Mustang RTR “Hoonicorn” V2, a black 1400hp racer made out of LEGO Technic pieces.
All the indicators that this custom Mustang is that of Ken Block’s own are there: chrome finish, number 43, accurate decal stickers and flared fenders. The detailing is so accurate that Ken Block himself featured Lachlan Cameron’s work on his Facebook page. And why shouldn’t he be impressed? The build has functional steering and transmission, all-wheel drive, in-board suspension and lights, all via Power Functions.
For any LEGO Technic builders with pieces to spare, you can try building Ken Block’s Ford Mustang RTR “Hoonicorn” V2 yourself. Cameron has offered the building instructions for sale on the Rebrickable platform, if there are LEGO car enthusiasts interested.
