Manifesting the engineering, design, and functionality from the legendary 911 family, this exclusive Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS shows a masterpiece in top-level building- blocks construction and quality that has never before seen in a LEGO Technic kit, in partnership with Dr. Ing. h.c.F. Porsche AG.
As a premium product through and through, the beauty of Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS begins with its box. The elegantly packaged model with its sleek aerodynamic lines, adjustable rear spoiler and orange bodywork is packed with authentic features and functions that capture the magic of the iconic supercar.
The 1:8 scale exceptional sports car model, which has 2,704 elements, also delights consumers with sleek, aerodynamic lines and an adjustable rear spoiler. Besides many authentic features, the packaging and accessories that come with this complex Lego Technic model also contribute to a building experience rich in variety: among other things, the box contains a swanky comprehensive collector’s book with exclusive background information on the development of the model. Furthermore, the elements of the individual assembly groups are packed in separate boxes for the first time and, together with the detailed instructions, provide an insight into the assembly process of the actual vehicle.
Dan Luo, the Managing Director of Lego Singapore said: ”The Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS has redefined the art of engineering, design, and functionality, literally. A fruition that took close to three years of designing, approving and manufacturing; we are extremely thrilled to add the Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS to the Lego Technic range. This 2,704- piece beast is certainly not your usual Lego toy. It gave me a great admiration for the incredible scrutiny with which every single piece is placed.”
According to Ferry Porsche, driving enjoyment is not created by comfort – quite the opposite is the case. Consequently, the Lego model also features a few rough edges that give it identity and character, just like the powerful original on which it is based: the authentically recreated bodywork is convincingly realistic with its characteristically low and sloping design, the large cooling air intakes at the front, the surface contouring of its roof and compartment lid, the unique front wheel arch air outlets of the lightweight carbon fenders and the striking rear wings.
Both the performance and the sportiness of the original have been credibly reproduced in various technical features on the Lego model. One key highlight is the fully functional Porsche double-clutch transmission with four gears and gearshift paddles on the steering wheel. But all technically minded Lego fans will especially love building and playing with the six-cylinder boxer engine with moving pistons underneath the rear lid.
In addition to the technical features, the interior of the model is also authentic and close to the original. A detailed dashboard, a steering wheel with gearshift paddles, racing seats, and a glove compartment concealing a unique serial number can all be found in the easily accessible cockpit.

The 1:8 scale model measures 17cm high, 57cm long and 25cm wide. Under the rear lid you’ll find the vehicle’s moving flat 6 engine. When the stick is in gear, gears engage and the motor moves. When the stick is in neutral, the car’s wheels still move, but the engine does not.
