This LEGO Plymouth Superbird is the LEGO Kit We Deserve
One of my favorite car designs of all time has to be the 1970 Superbird. Plymouth’s crazy muscle car was just so fantastically over the top with that massive wing out back, and a sharpened grille that looked ready to slice its way through the air.

Working BMW Transformer: Robots in Disguise

Working BMW Transformer: Robots in Disguise
One of the more incredible custom car builds I’ve ever seen has to be this BMW from Letrons. It looks just like a regular BMW when parked, but then opens up to form a giant mech, just like a Transformer. Unfortunately, the car isn’t big enough to hold a human driver or passenger, but it does drive using a remote control.
