If you’ve ever wanted to build your very own Audi Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) race car, here’s your chance … in Lego form.
That’s right; Hungarian Audi fan Máté Lipkovics created a scale version of the infamous German Touring Car Masters RS5, which he has offered up on Lego’s Ideas page.
Featuring independent pushrod suspension, a four-speed manual transmission, a V8 engine, rear wheel drive, Hand of God and cockpit steering, opening and locking doors, monocoque chassis and roll-cage, and adjustable rear wing, the RS5 DTM Lego racer is comprised by 2,000 components and can be easily motorized.
How does the intricacy of this 1:10 scale model hold up against the full meal deal? The Audi-built RS5 DTM is composed of 4,000 parts. So, for a replica, it’s pretty darn complex.
Keen to get your hands on this red beauty? Well, you can’t – at least not yet.
If you want to adorn the bookshelf of your bachelor pad with one of these bad boys, you’ll need to logon to the Lego Idea page and ‘support’ the car. If enough people support the kit, 10,000 to be exact, Lego will consider building it.
Should it get past the Lego Review stage, what might the RS5 DTM cost? Lego wagers somewhere between 120-150 € – or the equivalent of $200.00. Sure, it’s not as cool as a real race car, but it’s a sight cheaper.
