1939 Bugatti 57C Le Mans winner . The Bugatti 57C, driven by French pilots Jean-Pierre Vimille and Pierre Veyron, was the overall winner of the 1939 Le mans 24-hour race, the last one taking place before WWII. Powered by an 8-in-line, 3251 cc engine, it covered the total distance of almost 3355 kilometres (248 laps) at an average speed of 139.782 kph. . In this MOC, I tried to replicate as much details as possible of the real car. I admit I failed in most of them; thus, just like LEGO often do in their official LEGO Speed Champions sets, I have also resorted to (homemade) stickers in order to provide the model with a minimum decent look - namely the headlights and the radiator grille. One other problem was to sit the minifigure at a correct off-centre position: I took a small compromise here, so that, though not properliy aligned with the steering wheel, it still does the job... Last but not least - the main body color. As you can see from the pics of a diecast replica down below, the blue tint should be much lighter than this standard LEGO Bright Blue. I'm keeping my fingers crossed hoping that TLG will in the future produce all the needed parts (e.g. the mudguards) in Medium Blue or at least in Medium Azure - that should enable a much more realistic MOC. Tech data: Overall length: 20 studs (ca. 160 mm) Overall width: 7 studs (ca. 56 mm) Overall height: 5.33 bricks (ca. 51 mm) Number of parts: 162 Year created: 2017 For comparison purposes, here are a couple of pics of my Bugatti 57C diecast miniature:
