The LaFerrari represents Ferrari’s most ambitious project yet to push the boundaries of technology on a road car. Only 499 units were produced, and each cost more than 1 million US dollars since its release back in 2013. 

My replica had to be as authentic as possible to the real masterpiece when it comes to both functionality and aesthetics. Therefore I chose for the classis manual chassis rather than a remote controlled version instead. Off coarse I used Sariel’s model scaler to get all proportions right.

Specifications: 
-Length: 53 Studs (42 cm); Width 21 Studs (17 cm); height: 12.5 Studs (9.5 cm)
-Weight: 1100 g
-Parts count: 1566 pcs

Features:
-RWD
-Front and rear independent suspension
-Working fake mini V12 engine (by crowkillers)
-Steering with HOG control and positive Caster angle
-Working diffuser flaps which deploy when steered (Brunojj1’s idea)
-Modular bodywork (easily detachable to reveal chassis)
-Openable butterfly doors with HOG control
-Openable engine bay with knee joint mechanism

Considering it’s scale, the parameters I wanted to include were not easy to achieve at all, resulting in many headaches throughout the design process. The doors are a perfect example: their opening movement had as realistic as possible whilst not interfering with any of the other bodywork or front wheels, as they are part of the fender. When fully opened, the doors also needed to lock into place and they had to be operated using HOGs. The engine bay was a nightmare to design too. Very complicated curves had to be replicated with limited space for connectors to put the panels at the right angles. It Interfering with the chassis was a big bottleneck as well. 

Constructive critics, feedback and questions are as always appreciated!
Enjoy your day!

    Awesome model, so clever building techniques, and to be honest I'm starting to like more the 1:10 cars than the 1:8.
    It's an expensive build because of some parts, but the final result it's worth it 100%.
    Bring it on buddy, eagerly waiting your Centenario. :)
    Uploaded some pics too.

      Thank you very much for your feedback and pictures - you just made my day!

    Thank you T-Lego, the car is truly amazing, but I have to criticize the instructions. They are quite lazily prepared, apparently there was an automation software involved and what saved me is that I'm experienced with technic models, but for a beginner this might be impossible to build. Here are some points that would be great if improved: 
    1. There are steps where it is not clear where a part should be added as it is behind scene and its location is invisible. For example installing the doors have to be done by intuition
    2. The length of axles is not included and when you are dealing with one of the longest axles you can mess your build by applying the wrong length. Of course I don't expect a 1:1 to be added as these are digital instructions, but at least the length in studs can be included in order the builder to measure it and not make mistakes.
    3. There are errors in the order of which parts have to be applied, i.e by executing the current step it seems that the next step is now difficult to execute as the part from previous step is in the way. 
    4. The apparent trap on page 29, where you can totally make the brown axle lock into place and never come back (could be fixed using a 4L axle instead of 3L one, there is enough space to allow this). 
    These are pretty much the issues, fixing of which would accomplish this model as a true perfection. Hope my criticism is constructive and not taken in bad taste, I do love the model and don't regret a tiny bit paying for it and would recommend every fan to buy. Cheers and keep up designing amazing models!

      Hi Joe, I really appreciate you've taken the time to indicate points for improvement. Thank you very much for that! I Agree with everything you mentioned above. This is my first model of which I made digital building instuctions. I used the software Studio 2.0 and as you said, there was indeed semi-automatic software involved. The program for example, did not allow met to automatically insert axle's lenghts. I could have done it manually, but I would have to do it with each individual axle. For this I was too lazy as I assumed the majority of the axle could be correctly guessed. Looking at the model on my shelf, I saw that the brown 3L axle with stop was A mistake and should have been a 4L axle with stop with a bush. Currently, building instructions for my latest model are being made by Thorsten who is way more experienced and uses more sophisticated software. I will also let somebody test the building instructions from now on to spot mistakes and patch notes so the insturctions are in the best quality when officialy released. Have a great day!

    Have you ever considered adding RC functions to the MOC, such as power, to make this Ferrari Rafah really run?
    • 3 months, 2 weeks ago T-Lego Level 8 Designed this MOC
      I have considered to make it RC, but in this scale you would have to sacrifice the fake engine and interior just to fit all of the electronics. That would imo ruin the model.

    Very cool!!!!

    Great MOC! I will be the first to share photos! Hope you will like them :-)
    • 5 months, 2 weeks ago T-Lego Level 8 Designed this MOC
      Oh my gosh.... You photography skills is beyond belief. Thank you so much for sharing!!!
      • 5 months, 2 weeks ago fredleg Level 18
        :-)
        NB: a little problem with steps 28 and 29. It is easy to put the 24316 following step 29, but really difficult (nearly impossible) to retire it when dismantling the MOC...
        • 5 months, 2 weeks ago T-Lego Level 8 Designed this MOC
          Yeah I see it now :/  I should have paid more attention at issues like these when making the instructions ...

    I find it hard to believe this was all accomplished with Lego: the shaping is just too good. Well done!

      Thanks bro!

    You've just made my day.  Thank you!  
    Now to start gathering parts.

      I am glad to hear that my friend.

    Amazing model I like the shade of red you used for the body

    Great looking MOC!  Just missing a few parts.  Look forward to the build!  Thanks for posting an awesome MOC!

      Thanks! Please post your version here, I would love that!

    Wonderful looking car with awesome functions....all packed into a small scale. Great!!
  • 6 months, 4 weeks ago Helge Level 13
    It looks great. But I collect only scale 1:8. I bought a LaFerrari in scale 1:8 on AliExpress. That one is bigger but looks much the same
  • 6 months, 4 weeks ago Loxlego Level 13 MOC Designer
    That is one amazing design!! Great work fitting it all into such a small scale 😎
  • 7 months ago KristofPucejdl Level 12 MOC Designer
    Great model! I like the fact that it's not huge, yet still looks on par with the larger renditions in terms of detail. The only one thing I am not a huge fan of (from what I can see in the video and on pics) is the use of these old finger joint hinges for the windscreen frame. But that's just my personal preference not to use obsolete parts :D
    • 6 months, 4 weeks ago T-Lego Level 8 Designed this MOC
      I agree about prefering not to use older parts. I didn't know lego stopt producing this part arround 20 years ago until your comment.. :p
  • 7 months ago Eric2004 Level 7
    Nice moc,but the instruction is too expensive for me
    • 7 months ago T-Lego Level 8 Designed this MOC
      I am sorry about that man. I spent way too mmuch time on this model and it's development to give it away for free.
    • 7 months ago KristofPucejdl Level 12 MOC Designer
      Very unthoughtful comment. It's more than a fair price if you ask me. If you want to build this, the cost of the instructions will vanish compared to the cost of the parts.
    • 6 months, 4 weeks ago Theoderic Level 16 MOC Designer PRO
      Fair price for a MOC of this caliber, considering people are selling instructions of smaller official sets for this price and more.
    • 6 months, 4 weeks ago charlieca00907 Level 14 PRO
      The price of the instructions is MORE than fair.
  • 7 months ago nkende Level 14 MOC Designer
    This MOC looks amazing! Thanks for sharing
