Stunning Lego supercars mirror the real thing
This stunning model is an incredibly accurate replica of an £85,000 Aston Martin V8 Vantage built out children's (and adult's) toy Lego.
Last week, we got the chance to get behind the wheel of the luxury supercar and without the best part of £100,000 to spend this represents the next best thing.
However, the car, built by Lego car enthusiasts Sven Bode and Jens Matuschek on the MOCpages website, a community of Lego builders, is entirely custom-built and is not available to buy - unless you can build it yourself of course.
The accuracy of the 2005 coupe model is extraordinary, bringing together all the design touches described in the car's press release right down to the luxury interior and luggage shelf in the boot.
The design stays true to the original including the distinctive Aston Martin grille, engine bay and alloy wheels.
The 4.3-litre V8 supercar develops 420bhp and can accelerate from 0-62mph in less than five seconds in full production variation and remains a classic thanks to the brand's association with the James Bond films.
This is not the first time the duo have wowed with their Lego-based car designs. Previous creations include a Ferrari Enzo with a modded front end, a Lamborghini Murcielago LP and a Koenigsegg CCX.
While the Aston Martin uses the more traditional Lego bricks, other Lego car builders have embraced the new Lego Technic series by creating fully-working model cars.
For example, this Lego Pagani Zonda includes a high-precision steering system, front and rear suspension system with shock absorbers and even a fully-functional steering wheel.
The radio-controlled car is built by master Lego builder Sariel and is a skeletal replica of the 200mph Zonda hypercar, one of the fastest and most expensive cars in the world.
Designing Lego supercars is the kind of internet craze we can fully get behind; after all, Lego is the world's biggest producer of tyres and recently launched this incredible 1962 Lego Volkswagen Campervan that is built from 1,300 pieces and costs £100.
