My design for a 6-wide 4 seater Red Cabriolet, which can actually accommodate 3 minifigs.

It is inspired by the red car in the Police Chase (#3648).

Part of the challenge was to create opening bonnet, boot and doors while still be able to leave room for 3 minifigs.

Well your digital creation pulled it off, three figures into a six wide....finally a realistic wide body car ! :thumbup:

But now build it for real 'Vincent' - that would be AWESOME if you did ! :wink:

Keep on designing ! :grin:

Very nice LDD design Vincent, the fact that you were able to create a decently-sized minifig-scale car that can accommodate three passengers and has opening hood and doors is really an impressive feat! Now all we need to see is the real brickbuild version of this one. Great job! :thumbup:

There are some minor changes compared to the LDD model due to the available parts in my collection.

The front bumper is moved half a stud to the front, because it was locking the front wheel.

Very nice! Looks much even better in real bricks! The opening hood and rear compartment are really pretty neat details.

Great job! I always like seeing something which has been envisioned in LDD turned into a real tangible creation.
