I just found these amazing chassis on brickshelf (by Nathanael Kuipers).

Medium sized Technic chassis with similar features as the Supercars, like full suspension, V8 piston engine, working steering wheel and 4-speed gearbox. Rear axle is driven with live axle suspension. HoG is included as well. Bodywork will follow.

Cool! :classic: I love Nathanael's building style. Can't wait to see how his turns out. The wheels seem just a bit too narrow for the size. Or maybe it's just me. :hmpf:

Watermark says 2012, folder was created today.

I'm really looking forward to this.  It was Nathanael's Supercar that got me back into Technic.

There is always something new to learn when Nathanaƫl builds a model, that is for sure...

Very nice work - super compact and tidy and good techniques.  I love how the frame rails hug that V8 nice and tight.  It would be a bear to put headers on it.   :classic:

Sigh... just shows you how much you need Technic Frames these days, to do decent, compact studless models
it's a shame Lego didn't create these frames 10 years ago!

wish they were a bit cheaper on bricklink!

Yep, this has got "pony car" written all over it.  Judging by Nathanael's previous MOCs, though, it won't be a model of any specific car.

As Sama noted, there are now 23 pictures on Nathanael Kuipers (industrialdesigner) Brickshelf folder --  "Medium sized Technic car with similar features as bigger Supercars, like full suspension, V8 piston engine, working steering wheel and 4-speed gearbox. Rear axle is driven with live axle suspension. Has HoG steering as well. WiP."  I wonder what kind of body he will place on it?

I sure hope he makes some instructions for this model! It looks very many-featured and compact! Great Job Nathaniel Kupiers!

@ fourlord:
Maybe you could get in touch with Nathanaƫl..
"Some say he eats ABS for Breakfast. Some say he dreams in Building Instructions. All we know is, he's called JunkstyleGio...."
Check out my LDD Brickshelf or my regular Brickshelf for anything technic.

Well, i will continue to build the whole car.
I will not contact him since i'm lazy and i think he will sell instructions instead of share but thats his business (maybe he will read this ;)).

This MOC is so professional it looks like an official lego set/model.

Thinking a TVR speed 12 style body in a dark colour would look nice.
