Sheepo's Garage is the author of this highly detailed Lego-made Shelby GT500 built on a 1:8 scale and with no less than 3,500 components.

This Lego-made Shelby GT 500 built on a 1:8 scale is far from being a simple toy. Made from no less than 3,500 parts, it's the work of Sheepo's Garage and is fully functional as it has steering and braking systems controllable through a remote control. It also has a sequential five-speed gearbox with reverse and comes with disc brakes connected to a working pedal within the car.

In addition, this miniature Shelby GT 500 boasts McPherson front struts just like the real car and comes with a four-link rear axle. You will notice the steering wheel is functional and the doors, hood and trunk can be opened. The level of detail goes so far that the front seats fold forward to provide improved access to the rear bucket seats.

While it may not have a miniature V8 5.8-liter supercharged engine, the car does come with an electric motor and can reach a top speed of 3 km/h (1.86 mph). Between the front seats it even has a gear indicator and there's a V8 fake engine under the hood. Lastly, the car features a unibody frame as even the roof is part of the frame as a way to improve torsional stiffness.

Its creator mentions the car can be taken apart in less than three minutes but putting it back together will take a lot more. Full instructions will be provided in the near future.
