Hello to all LEGO fans.

Today I am presenting you the future of racing cars of 24 hours Lemans.

TESLA concept race car.

It is driven by 2 electric Buggy motors.Power suply is via freshly charged batteries. ( our future i think)

It has a concept steering mechanisem for better driving propertis. It is a concept from Tesla and Michelin group. Its called Das koncept.

The whole car inspired me to make someting like the real concept of Tesla T1.But not in the shape, only the steerin system. ( it is ugly ) So i decided to make my own version of the body shape and chassis.

Lets see some pictures of my design:

Some detailed interior with opening the cabin.

Picture of the undercarriage. As you can see, nothing special.

It has full independent suspension on all wheels. Rear axle is direct driven from iner output of buggy motors.

Frot axle is steered via RC unit.

Some dimensions:

lenght: 62 studs,  width: 28 studs,  height:14 studs.

weight is 1380 grams.

Speed: I did not measure it, But for this weight and size its wery wery fast.

After the shooting for the video, i was playing with this litle race monster abouth 1 hour or something. Spectacular driving. I was again a litle child.

And the video.

 

 

I hope you like it.

Best regards, Valter

I really like the look of this concept.  The steering looks interesting.  Does it use a turntable?

In the future I would suggest you restrain from using brand logos in your videos, but nice work!

Really good looking! I like that shaping of cabin with axles.

Steering also interesting, but don't know if it would be better than traditional.

Very cool looking concept and seems very stable driving around.  Any plans for instructions?

IMO no no no. It is horible. Maybe i wil try with diferentials. The cars speed slows down a litle bit when turning. I think the diferential must be integrated. In this case was weight, speed and looks on first place. No room for difs.

Tesla. You used the Tesla Logo. I doubt you'll have a problem with them but there has been cases where YTers will use a brand logo then get a nasty email from said brand.

If this was real, I'd be so amazed :wub:  this is awesome. Might even sketch this as a real car and post it here.

I quess you coupled the 2 motors by one axle...? Just seperate this connection... use 1 motor for each wheel, and here you go... you will have your differential-effect ;)

 

BTW... i guess, its the Tesla T1 wich you rebuildet.. right?

Awesome!!!!!:laugh:

Please make instructions, this would be cool to build!

 

I dont make instructions. But i can make pictures of disasembling. I think it is totaly easy to reproduce it.

I really like this MOC. The lines flow so well, your version of the Tesla car is better than the original IMO and obviously great speed. The wheels add a different style than I've seen before and I like it!

Very good model, the front wheel guards are very good but I don't like the steering. I think it should be more traditional steering. Reminds me of a formula E car.

The design also reminds me of like a Polaris Slingshot but obviously without the single wheel at the rear......
