Speed Champions scale Audi R8 First Generation.
About this creation
This is my Speed Champions scale R8 that was derived from set 75873. This is a first revision, with future plans on redesigning due to dissatisfaction with some of the details. Forgive the somewhat sloppy photography, as I got rather lazy. Enjoy!


The front end at this scale is very difficult. The iconic grill and headlights are difficult to capture, and I had 2 front ends I swapped back and forth trying to decide the best one. I'm not satisfied with this result.


I was initially happy with the profile, but have since soured on it in a side-by-side comparison. There is definite room for improvement.


The rear end was a fun challenge, but like the rest of the car, unsatisfactory. I understand why stickers are such a crutch. The taillights are too large in proportion, and sit lower than they should.


I apologize for the washed out photo. Would have been a decent shot.


I hope you enjoyed this model. Though far from my best work, it was still a fun challenge.

Thank you for viewing!

Quoting Nils O. Very cool, another great looking SC Audi R8. I have to say Geoffey's is still my favourite, but there are some details on your one that I might "borrow" for my son's R8 LMS ;-)). For now it only has new head and tail lights (without stickers), but I have some new ideas, now... Great job! :-))
I like his too. I noticed that he used a similar method on his front end that I did for my original front, that will be rephotographed with my Mk2 rear. This was so hard! Thank you for the feedback! :-)

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Ohh. I guess, I should have looked up the builder instead of the creation in the contest group. :-D
Hahaha. No worries! Still cool you suggested the contest. It's the thought that counts. :-)

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Love the absence of stickers! Even if it doesn't look 100% right, it's better than using stickers for, e.g., the headlights. You should enter this one here: http://www.moc-pages.com/group.php/26022 ~Cheers
I appreciate the positive feedback! I already added 2 that are better models, but I might swap one out at some point. This one just doesn't cut it. :-)

Quoting Grand Admiral Thrawn Nice representation of the Audi R8, one of my favorites lol. I can imagine the grill being the hardest, its an odd shape to capture in Lego. Now im inspired to build a speed champions car, just got the Ferrari one a couple of months ago and i love the set.
You should! I decided to branch out into cars when I bought a set and inevitably decided to tinker with it. Go for it!

Quoting High Emperor Duckie Not bad! I agree that there's room for improvement tho...
I appreciate the feedback! This was one of those projects that started with some excitement, but as the design challenges piled up, I realized that I wasn't going to get everything I wanted from it. I'm working on some changes before I give up and move on. :-)
