For any fan of classic cars, watching this beautiful automobile — one of ten ever built — meet its demise is one of the more gut-wrenching moments in recent cinematic history. Anyone? Anyone?
Built by amatuer Swedish LEGO engineer Etzel87, this meticulously-detailed diorama recently took first prize in the Swebrick.se “AFOL vs AFOL” design competition, which challenged adult LEGO enthusiasts to recreate a famous movie or television scene involving an automobile. Runners-up included scenes from movies such as Spaceballs and the Shining. Head over to Etzel87’s Flickr page for a complete gallery of the model — detailed down to the individual shards of shattered glass. [Chicagoist]
