There have been plenty cool LEGO versions of real cars over the years, but Sariel built a working LEGO RC Land Rover Defender 90 that blows them all out of the water. Powered by two PF XL motors and featuring four-wheel drive, a four-speed transmission, locking differentials, front-mounted winch and working lights, it’s possible to mistake this impressive creation for the real thing during close up shots. This isn’t an official set, nor is it for sale, but it’s one hell of a reason to pick up a box of bricks and get building.
