This is my first ever supercar! I kind of mixed the 8880, 8448, 8466 and 8297 features together. The car uses all wheel drive and steering, wherebye the rear wheels steer at a lower angle than front. The gearbox is a 5+R, which uniquely uses both gears of the differential to power it. All gears with exception of reverse are powered by the central diff, the reverse is by front wheel drive only. Gearbox has the following gear ratios:
1 gear 2,5
2 gear 1,67
3 gear 1,5
4 gear 1,0
5 gear 0,9
R gear 1,4
Picture of gearbox at start of the build:
I tryed to make car as functional as possible, so there are 3 buttons in the dashboard.
The first one when tilted pops up the lights in front and turns them on.
The second button pops up the hood and the third one opens and closes the motorized roof. Also the doors have working handles, that automatically lock when doors close, to keep them from opening.
The suspension uses horizontal mounted springs to save on space.
Front has almost 50 grill pieces to cool the massive V12 engine.
The rear has mustang-like lights and 2 massive exhaustst.
You can see the roof mechanics here:
All the mechanical guts are visible here. Can you count all the gears ?

I hope you guys like it! It may not be as stylish as Crowkiler's monsters, but I think it's quite neat.
