Therefore, a great set, whether you just like cars, want to play with an interesting one, need useful parts, or want to learn from it.
▪ BUILDING, IDEAS AND CONCEPTS
Fantastic construction ― nice, efficient and strong, though not the easiest to build. So tightly packed with functions, it is almost impossible to put a sugarcube anywhere in the model. Interesting concepts too with the motorized panels around the car controlled by the centralized gearbox. Although there is not anything we haven't seen yet, the feat of putting all that within the given volume (quite small in sportscars) is in itself a very good learning material.
It is not overly difficult for disassembly either, avoiding difficult parts (half-width 2L Technic beams) as much as possible.
▪ PARTS SUPPLY
You will find some very useful parts for any car, such as the suspension wishbones, hubs, engine, racing tyres, etc., and the set contains also a PF battery pack and a medium-size motor. The rest is a standard Technic building material with plenty of beams, pins, axles and a couple of panels. And with a bit over 1200 parts, it is a good amount, too.
Since the machinery is so deeply integrated, there's not much freedom to modify the car without having to rebuild some components entirely. A most basic addition would be to introduce PF lights in the headlights (this is so obvious that I'm somewhat confused TLG did not do it already). But there's little else to add.
▪ GENERAL PROS & CONS
+ Clever construction, great to learn strong and efficient Technic design
+ Lots of functions
+ Considerable supply of parts
+ Really nice to play with
+ Superb looks, very realistic
- Not trivial to build, needs some patience
- Steering wheel in the cabin does not work
▪▪ VERDICT ▪▪
With its complexity, advanced ideas and intelligent construction, the new addition to the Technic Supercars line up is certainly up to standard. It is not among the cheaper models, but one really does get a lot in return. Highly recommended, especially if you're into building MOC cars ― in that case you will find some very useful specialized parts here.
