The Aston Martin RB 001, LMP1 performance for the Road.
About this creation
The Aston Martin RB 001, is a Hyper-car designed in partnership with Red Bull racing and Aston Martin. The performance figures have not even been set in stone yet, but claims are being made that it will lay down LMP1 lap times, and sport a V12 in the middle of this beauty of engineering. also expected is a Track only version which will push it even further, F1 times being the targets for that version. weather it lives up to the hype or not there is no denying that beauty of it's styling.

this Lego version is just as sleek and impressive as the real thing. and an extreme amount of care went into this model both replicating as many features as possible and the spirit of the vehicle. i spent several days refining the lines and adjusting almost every part of the car to include as many of the vents, ducts, and other extreme body work details as i could fit in a 6wide+ car. and at a mere 15 studs long and 3.33 bricks tall it is one of my smallest city scale cars to date. but that's not what you are here for you want to see the car so lets get to it!

this first picture is of the original nose design, which later was replaced with a shorter more accurate nose (the rest of the car is unchanged)

from the side you can see the various ducts in the bodywork. all of which help to keep it on the track or force air into the V12 engine. also the shorter restyled nose can be seen from this angle.

the sleek near stud-less shape of the Lego model is reflective of the real cars flowing lines, and the adjustable rear wing can deploy to increase down-force or help with high speed breaking.

the underside of the car is raised much higher than the average super car and the rear pulls up even further to reduce drag, and increase down force.

the front end has been hollowed out to allow for a vented front splitter, much like the real car there are numerous areas of uninterrupted air flow to allow for greatest down force and minimal drag.

((side note, I rigged up a simple wind tunnel for laughs with this and compared it to the Lego set 60053. and it performed around 30% better in my test meaning an approximate 30% reduction on drag/air resistance. relative to 60053. if anyone is interested in my loosely scientific test I'd be happy to share that in the comments))

The underside isn't as elegant as the other features of the car but shows just how much work was done to keep the car some what similar to the real car given he scales i was working in. every piece is necessary to keep the car intact, but nothing extra, if it could be lost to allow for a higher under body line it was lost.

and finally a quick comparison shot of it with the Speed Champions McLaren (also a 6 wide) the dramatic difference in height and apparent width are easy to see here.

I hope you liked my build! comments and Critiques always welcomed!

Very cool, you've added a lot of details, especially considering the rather small scale. The tail lights are extremely hot! ;-)) Great job! :-))

Sweer car! I love the usage of hot dogs for the taillights! Genius! Also, as an added bonus, if he stops, he can have a snack! :-)

Quoting André Fontes Great model! The shaping and details are really nice, and neat usage of the sausages as rear lights. Such a shame it got so few likes until now because it's a really good model.
thanks, I did post this to Eurobricks, and Brickset (along with my Flickr) so although it's not climbing the likes here there has been a lot of compliments on it. everyone loves sausage, haha.
