Lego announces Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS complete with working PDK gearbox

2704 pieces and in Lava Orange - one of the greatest Lego kits of all time?

There have been lots of cool Lego Technic kits over the years and up until now it was probably the Unimog (kit number 8110) that was most desired in the evo office. However, now the giant utility vehicle has been superseded, because Lego has just released kit number 42056 – a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. To watch a video of Lego’s Senior Design Manager, Andrew Woodman, taking you through the kit just click below.

It shows a level of collaboration and quality not previously seen in a Lego Technic kit. The build manual is more like something you would find gracing a coffee table, while the wheels are perfect recreations of the real car’s beautiful alloys and there are yellow callipers for the disc brakes just as you’ll find on the carbon ceramics of a real RS. Each car also gets a unique number that comes on a laser-engraved plaque – just like its own VIN plate.

The working parts of a Lego Technic model have always been things of joy and the 991 GT3 RS doesn’t disappoint. As well as working steering and suspension and an adjustable rear wing, there is a fully functional PDK gearbox, complete with paddles. You can even select Drive and Reverse via the tiny gearlever.

The 1:8 scale car comes in Lava Orange and there are 2704 pieces in each kit. The only downside is that just like the real thing, this GT3 RS doesn’t come cheap, retailing at £249.99 from 1st June this year.
