LEGO Technic 8070 Supercar / Roadster

LEGO Technic 8070 SupercarLEGO Technic 8070 Supercar / Roadster  - a large set of 1282 bricks from 2011. It has not been designed to resemble any particular exotic car model as LEGO has done so far with large models from Racers lineup. Power Functions including in this set make it more attractive and increase potential for playability when rebuilding the model.

In LEGO Technic 8070 Supercar  LEGO decided to use one Power Functions motor with one battery box. This combination is used to automatically open the doors, extend rear spoiler and open the hood of the car. Designers of the model cleverly used the gear lever to switch between those functions.

The steering is done using the knob on the back top of the car.The rear hood opens manually but is designed to allow the spoiler to extend automatically from underneath.

The car looks amazing, although it has many holes so the internal design can be exposed. There is a huge V8 engine at the front visible through the hood and rear contains Power Functions equipment.

LEGO Technic 8070 Super Car is very tightly packed, it is a technical design marvel cleverly planned. It takes a long time to get assembled and this time is a good lesson in mechanics, the downside is that there is not much room for modifications.

LEGO Technic 8070 Roadster Alternate B Model

There is an alternative 8070 B-Model - a Roadster which also uses Power Functions, this time the roof can be automatically hidden inside the back of the car. Naked front looks great, engine and tires are fully exposed to resemble a two seater hot hatch.The "suicide" doors also get opened automatically, but that's all for power functions in B-Model.

Overall  LEGO Technic 8070 Supercar is an amazing set, technically challenging and bringing massive satisfaction. It takes hours of fun to put together and equally many to take apart to create something else. With so many parts, including many complicated bricks, there is a lot that can be done. Money well spent!
