This is my latest 7 wide car. It is a Ferrari type mid engine sports car and was the inspiration for my entry in the modular madness contest. I always wanted to make a mid engine type sports car with the engine visible behind a transparent clear panel like in a Ferrari F430 or 360 Modena and I was finally able to make it. I built the car in red, black and light gray and will proably do some other colors in the future. Thanks for looking.

These are all amazing as I already said on your Modular entry. Especially since they are 7 wide.  :wub_drool:

I love how you can see the engine too. I might have to take a look at your Ebay sometime and maybe buy one if you ever put this design up.  :wink:

Awesome convertibles dtm11! Love the detail fit in 7 wide. They look like a combination of an Enzo and 458. Keep these fantastic 7W vehicles coming   Posted Image

That's a great looking Ferrari-esque car. It has some nice lines and details. Looks to be an F430 Spyder to me.

Thanks prateek. With only 5 pics allowed for the modular contest, I though this was a good way to show more pics of the cars.

Thanks lightningtiger. I am glad you like the red one, if your going to have a Ferrari it has to be in red.

Thanks Legocrazy81. The F430 Spyder provided a lot of inspiration fot this car. I looked at a lot of pics of that car on the internet when doing the design.

Looking at these again, the backs would benefit if you add 2 more red studs to look like this:
OO===OO :laugh:
Just like the real Ferraris. I don't know how you've built it exactly, but it seems possible. :wink:

These look fantastic. I am not too familiar with building cars in 7 wide format, but it is very impressive. I may need to start in the future.

I would also like to see instructions or tips on how to build them. But if you've built some for selling purposes, I doubt you will be sharing any instructions with us.

Keep up the great builds!

Great suggestion prateek, I thought about doing that and its possible but I would be giving up some statiblity on the back bumper. I wanted to try using the new 1 x 1 round tile for the build and they give a more bulky look when two are next to each other. Proably would have to go back to the 1 x 1 round plates intstead if I were to go that route.

Thanks TheLegoDr. You should definatly try buidling in 7 wide format its a little more challenging because of the odd number stud width but allows for a little more detail than the classic 4 wide format. Sorry no instructions. Some tips for buidling would be to keep the cars low as they are on the larger end of the minifig scale. Also a good way to learn how to build 7 wide is to take an official 6 stud vehicle and try to convert it to 7 studs or take one of the creator 8 stud vehicles and downsize it to 7 studs. The first 7 wide car I made was based off one of the 8 wide speed racers car sets that came out a few years back. I thought it looked to big for my town so I redesigned it to be 7 wide.

The drivers look too grumpy to be driving such beautiful cars! :laugh:

These MOCs are great, I'd have to say my favourite parts are the poited nose, and the glass cover over the engine. Love the cars, maybe we'll see them in a bigger MOC? :sadnew:
