    This isn't an official Lego Speed Champion (6 stud wide) car, but a MOC (My Own Creation) by Gallardo of LU. I made some modifications, mostly to the internals to use as many parts as possible from Lego 75899 (La Ferrari) and to provide a stronger chassis lengthwise. The rest of the parts I brick-linked from BrickOwl.

    These 6 stud wide cars are pretty small, and given the inherent limitations of existing Lego parts, it's difficult to get the proportions totally right. I'll probably print out some custom stickers to make a rear window outline closer to the real car.

    BTW, take a guess what this car is. The side mirrors and tailpipes should give it away.

    That's Trump's new presidential state car "The Pagani Beast" painted in republican red. I mean - just look at the flag poles. Dead giveaway.

    Yup, it's the Huayra. Would be neat it Lego came out with a big Technic kit. The Zonda has a rear wing I think. The real Huayra has left and right flaps on the front and rear of the car to assist in high speed braking and turning. It's seems pretty neat, although possibly gimmicky, but still neat nevertheless.

    LOL, I'm working on something like that. I will be building two Lego vehicles which best exemplify Sanders and Trump voters. I'm also working on a urban scene with people who didn't like Trump winning, but in all likelihood probably didn't even bother to vote, like some second string NFL QB, cough cough. And finally, another scene which denotes a get-together of Communist Party of China princelings.

    The Pagini strikes me more of a Clinton type of voter. Maybe someone in my neighborhood who is a major studio executive, or a SF Bay Area Dot-Com 2.0 douchebag in his 30s who beat the crap out of his girlfriend and is now on the run.

    These are way more fun than collecting Matchbox or Hot Wheels cars. In the overall scheme of things, inexpensive ($13-18) per car. They can be quickly built and don't tire out my son (or tire me out) like the 2000 piece Technic kits. There's definitely a formula, with shared components (chassis, wheels, sides) that once you build a few, it's a piece of cake to build more. My son and I have been building one or two cars every night for the past week.

    A Technics set that does this would be pretty awesome:

    Not really a fan of the look of the new Huayra. Compare it to the Zonda F below, now that was a work of art.

    OK, I'll make a Zonda for you. Give me a week or two, might need to order two or three special bricks. You only get it in red too.

    My own Pagani Zonda? Wow, haha. I feel so honored. This semi-vacation must have been good to you. :D

    P.S. I won't hold you to that. Build whatever you damn please.

    I took a bunch of photos of the Lego in varying states of disassembly. I'm pretty sure you can figure it out from here.

    Again, the parts from Lego 75899 (La Ferrari) will give you a good start. This build is a bit different from Gallardo's build. It's more consistent with the "Lego way" on their Speed Champions series.
