First off thanks to all of you who looked and commented on the car before it was done. It really means a lot to know that people care about what I build, and I have to thank you for that. Now, on with the creation. The car has the same internal structure as the W.I.P showed last time, the only difference is the body work. The Appollo R12 LM is Appollo's entry into next years Le Mans race. This is the fastest, most powerful and most technical Appollo ever made. Now before you look to the pictures, I must give a shout-out to some special people. Them being Dennis B, Stormjay rider and Silly productions, who did say white. But the REALLY BIG SHOUT-OUT must go to AADEN HUGHES. He was the one who suggested the colour choice of white in the first place, saying it would be 'simple'. As it turned out, white was also a great challenge for me to build with. Photos are below ladies and gentlemen. So, enjoy...
About this creation
The engine is a fire-breathing monster. A huge 7.2L V12, which thanks to a programmable ECU and titanium exhaust, produces 740 BHP
To see the engine fully, you need to remove some body panels We now step into the drivers cabin
As you can see, it is surrounded by the roll cage
In case you may have forgotten or not seen the internals of the car before the body work was added, here is a reminder...
FRONT: I was very pleased with the front of the car. Unlike my normal builds, I started from the front and worked my way back
Another use for the roll cage
WOW! a towing hook
Ariel view is my favorite
And again, the rear signal the end to the post. Thanks for looking at both this car and the W.I.P version. If you can, please rate and/or comment...THANKS! (and Thanks again to Aaden Hughes!)
Very nice! After seeing the roll cage, I didn't expect the finished car to has as low a profile as it does, but it looks great. Nice details all around, but what really works for me are the black and yellow racing stripes and the shaping of the tail section.
I like it

Amazing! I just saw this on "The Lego Car Blog". Great color choices. The fact that you have a towing attachment is sweet, but having the mandatory red arrow above it is excellent.
WOW! This is amazing! The level of detail is insane, it's beautiful! I love your exterior design too, it goes great with the colour scheme! I'm very glad you chose the white, I think it looks perfect on this car! Thanks for the mention too! Fantastic work mate!
fantastic model. I loved the design, not only on the body but on the amazing chassis too1 the rear reminds me of an Aston Martin, and I just loved that rear bumper wheel diffusors! Great job, you are improving in an incredible rate!
