Lego SLS AMG GT3 is an Impressive Home-Built Creation
Over the weekend, we showed you a Lego car that would intimidate even the most seasoned builder. It was a fully functional vehicle built from 500,000 pieces and powered by a compressed air motor. Today, we have something far more attainable and of the supercar persuasion– a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3. The lego creation was built by Malte Dorowski, using the more advanced Lego Technic collection of building materials. It depicts the racing variant of the modern gullwing- and even has fully working doors. (Explosive bolts not included.) RELATED: See Photos of the real thing - the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3
Proportionally, the car is very accurate, including the seating position, the location of the engine, and steering setup. It is quite impressive, considering these parts were not made with this design in mind.

The SLS AMG GT3 is the racing version of the epic Mercedes-Benz SLS-AMG gull wing. It has a 6.3-liter V8 engine, making 571 horsepower and can get from zero to sixty in just 3.7 seconds. While we can’t imagine this lego variant doing the same thing, it stays true to the design, with the aerodynamic fins at the front corners, and the raised rear spoiler.
As far as lego builders go, Dorowski is right up there with the greats.
