LEGO Technic has unveiled a new 1:8 scale recreation of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Set number 42056 will hit online shelves this June with over 2,700 pieces. Inside the box you’ll find a special collector’s edition book that details the history of LEGO Technic and Porsche. This kit was designed specifically for auto enthusiasts with a different build pattern then we traditionally see. LEGO went to painstaking efforts to develop a sequence that mirrors the actual real-life assembly process for this car.
While the kit is certainly a LEGO spin-off, it appears to be a beautiful reproduction. From the orange body work and red suspension springs to detailed rims, this is one lustworthy set. You’ll be able to open all of the doors and hood (which features a storage compartment) plus the rear lid where the engine sits. There are even moving pistons! All together, this looks like another home run from LEGO.
This set will hit stores in June with a steep $299.99 price tag. More information can be found below the reveal video in the official press release from LEGO.
