Completed: Lotus Super Twelve Group Build

The Super-Twelve beast for the groupbuild is completed* !
(* except some really minor details but a deadline is a deadline and I'm not at home this weekend..)

It has a 6.0 L Mercedes V12 and Ferrari testarossa front and rear A-arms with custom push-rod shocks.

Thanks to all that have given inspiring comments in the progress thread !
Its been a really great groupbuild with a lot of inspiration from everyone.

The (long..) progress thread is here:
http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbul...d.php?t=623353

Enough talk, lets kill some modems with a "few" pics.
Hope to take some outdoor shots after the weekend.
Enjoy ! I did !

Re: Completed: Lotus Super Twelve Group Build

wow.....just wow, easily my favorite of the sevens in this group build, I just love the whole concept. The carbon fiber, the v12, the wats....it flows well. I really like the look of the lowered front headlights too, it really sets off the badass attitude this car has. Very cool build man!

Great concept and congratulations on being able to finish this beast!

Re: Completed: Lotus Super Twelve Group Build

Holy crap, so many details, so well done!

Great carboning, no not great, superb!

I like all the little extras, and was a bit afraid it was going to be a little bit over the top. But this just beats everything ever made over the top!

Spectacular! Could we perhaps have a comparison pic in size with a normal streetcar model to see it's sheer crazyness?

Hi Martin,

as said before: An absolutely stunning model. Great execution and lovely details.
I love the mean stance and look it has. Surely a beast!

Cheers

Re: Completed: Lotus Super Twelve Group Build

This is an absolute monster. The only thing I would've done different was leave the front wheels bare, those fenders look... I dunno, out of proportion. Not really a criticism though, just a personal preference. The whole thing looks awesome!
