Lego Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS - 1
If you’re a fan of Lego, especially the engineering that goes into its Technic series, you’re going to love the Porsche 911 GT3 RS kit that was recently released. Coming in five boxes and a 25 mm thick, 578-page instruction manual, the Lego Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS is for the child in all of us.

That the kit’s build manual is not not far off the size of “War and peace” comes as no surprise, as the 2,704 parts combine into a working model of the flat-six engine, PDK gearbox, and functional steering. The build takes 856 steps, and according to Brickset, takes approximately six hours to complete.

Recommended for ages 16 and above, the reason why becomes apparent when you watch the video of the unboxing and speed-build of Technic kit #42056. While a Lego Technic set is typically not dimensionally accurate, it does duplicate the function of major components. For the Porsche 911 GT3 RS kit, this includes the PDK paddle shifters, and the gear movement of the PDK gearbox.

Coming in a lurid shade of orange, with the brakes in the correct shade of yellow, the kit also includes a sticker sheet that lets the builder put the correct Porsche graphics on the car, and even two stickers for the kit car’s GPS display – one with the unit shut-down and showing the Porsche logo, the other a representation of Porsche’s Weissach test track.

As expected, the price of the Technic Porsche GT3 isn’t cheap. Listed on the Lego website at USD 299.99 (RM1,225), this might not be the kind of ‘toy’ you give to your six-year old niece or nephew. Stock is currently unavailable, based on the Lego website listing, and orders are being taken for customer delivery in 30 days. Orders are limited to two per customer.
