Danver LM GTR
This MOC is the first in a series of builds that are slightly larger than Speed Champions-scale, but use SC parts & pieces.
About this creation
Much like Joao Campos , I was somewhat disappointed in how the official builds of Prototype race cars that competed in the World Endurance Championship looked in the "Traditional" 6-wide Speed Champions scale. And just like him, I chose to make a series of 8-wide vehicles that I feel capture the intricate details of the real-life cars they're based off of without the excessive use of stickers.



First up is a MOC based on a real-life car, the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO. (Specifically, the slightly-revised version that was tested but never actually raced.) While the car was by all intents and measures a complete failure due to a laundry-list of issues, I always felt that the basic design concept had merit and appreciated Nissan for trying something new and different. Plus, IMO it had a relatively smooth, uncomplicated shape that could be replicated fairly-well in LEGO®.



The Red body color with White & Blue stripes livery is a small nod to the fact that the real-life inspiration was designed, built and tested in The United States. It also matches up well with the minifigures I want to get for drivers.



Also, the name of this MOC is a small nod to one of the manufacturers featured in the arcade-y racing game series "Ridge Racer", with Danver being known for building big, front-engined cars.





There's also a Blue car with Red & White stripes to complete the team.





As always, Comment, Rate & Review.

Ver nice couple of cars! Totally agree with what’s being said here on the SC mudguards. They’re just too bulky for most 6 wide cars. These look fantastic though.

Agree with Luuk, Speed Champions mudguards look cool in 6 wide muscle cars, but with low supercars they're odd. But in the 8-wides they're really useful. Anyway, another epic car grom you. Keep on building!

I agree that 8-wides usually look better, a lot of cars just look odd in 6. I guess cars in LEGO are 6 wide because 8-wides use quite a lot more pieces and LEGO wants to keep their sets cheaper. Nice job, I like the colors.
