This car is meant to have a lot of the sophistication and functions of my 1:8 cars, but in a much smaller package!
About this creation

Aesthetics: I think it looks pretty good, with LED headlights and a sweeping rear. It seems quite British from the back, but it reminds me more of Lego's Aston Martin DB5 than a Jaguar!
























Interior: It has a full interior, just like my big cars. The steering wheel works, and the seats can slide forward and backwards.





















Opening stuff: The doors open and have auto-locks, and the hood opens as well.









Suspension: There is full independent double-wishbone suspension with one hard shock per wheel.

















Drive: There are two L-motors to power the AWD with a central differential and a micro V8 piston engine. It drove quite well!















Steering: A servo steered the front wheels along with the steering wheel.







Gearbox: I used my new 8-speed gearbox (Type 1), posted elsewhere. It was shifted by an M-motor through a worm gear, and had a speed indicator. It worked quite well!









Adjustable suspension:
This was the hardest function to fit, and was powered by an M-motor through a worm gear, a whole slew of bevel gears, and four small linear actuators connected to the shocks. It lowered well, but was too weak to lift itself.























Overall, I am quite pleased at this 1:12 car. I used to build almost only these cars, since they were the biggest wheels I had! It was fun to return to this size with my current skills, and I am pleased with the result.
