[MOC] BMW M8 Competition (new photos)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello everyone!

I am really excited to present you my new MOC, a replica of the BMW M8 Competition in 1:10 scale (just about). I was always a fan of this car since for me this is one of the best looking and performing BMWs ever.

I have to credit @Jeroen Ottens for the brilliant use of the hero factory claw element used for the grille, which I saw in his BMW, element: 92220.t1.png

The model has the typical supercar features:

-double wishbone suspension all around

-working fake engine (v8 in this case)

-working steering wheel
-opening of the doors, hood and trunk

Eagle eyes have all ready spotted the Hofmeister-Knick :wink:

I always wanted to make a black body car and this was the best opportunity as the car looks great in real life in this color. Color swap should be possible with ease in red and white all though it may need extra small modifications

I feel the headlights and the tail lights were the biggest challenge for me when designing this car, as they are so specific in the look the provide.

The model is remote controlled but it the motors are not part of the chassis so the car be built without them. There are 2 L motors for driving, 1 servo for steering, 1 buwizz and 3 pairs of LEDs to get that bright night vision (you can se the lights on at night in the vid).

Also the interior is really important part of any car. Here I tried to replicate it in the best way I could at this scale from the seats, to the air vents, to the M buttons on the steering wheel.

There is no rear bench as all of the electronics are located in that area.

Here is the video on youtube: 

 

Also there is the building instruction available on rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-103353/Alex Ilea/bmw-m8-competition/#details

As I have said on the Lego Technic FB group this looks very very close to the real one. I love how the white panel is used inside the door frame.

Thanks Jerry! No, it’s just direct drive, I wanted an RC car with this build, my next car will have some insane gearbox action :sweet:

Thank you! I think you mean the M buttons on the steering wheel. It would have been cool to have turn lights.

I mean that the orange turn signals are not working when you made turns. Just like most of the real models, they don't work when going left or right.

Very nice MOC! This is the best-looking BMW I've ever seen - and it's RC. Excellent demonstration that 1:8 scale is not required to have great features.

I’m glad you like it! I really like 1:10 scale, but 1:8 is also really fun. I’m building a 1:8 right now, and it presents some nice challenges.
