A special collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and CaDA has led to the creation of a detailed 1:8 scale replica of the famous Mercedes-AMG One hypercar. Made from an impressive 3,295 interlocking building blocks this model is a precise representation of the real thing.
BrunoJJ1 who is popular for designing outstanding Lego and block cars is the genius behind this replica. He has made sure to include the hypercar’s standout features like the longitudinal fin retractable rear wing and detailed 10-spoke wheels with patterns that mimic Michelin tires.
Not just good to look at this model is also functional. It has dimensions of 22.4 inches by 9.6 inches by 6.3 inches. It comes with a lot of interior and exterior details.
A big highlight is its fully motorized design. It comes with features like independent front and rear suspension shock absorbers and working LED lights. The engine of the model takes inspiration from the original six-cylinder one. It also cleverly uses pullback motors to give an idea of the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS).
Its advanced drivetrain is similar to the real AMG One. This is due to the two L-motors that come with a separate control via an included remote. What makes it unique is its two-speed transmission which is not common for interlocking building block sets. The remote lets users control various features like direction speed and even the lights. It also has doors that can be operated remotely.
Recently the 1:8 scale model world has seen some very realistic cars. An example is a Ferrari 296 GTS model which takes 300 hours to make and costs $14,750. For those who love old cars there is the DeLorean BTTF RC car.
Given that the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar is seen as a high point in car making its 1:8 scale model is a way to celebrate it. This makes it a must-have for those who collect such models and car lovers.
