Ferrari Testarossa V1.1 / V1.2 (4-wide)
A small update for my 4-wide Testarossa: A new front end and some new brackets on the rear end. And another (even smaller) update: A new arrangement of tiles and plates on the rear part of the roof
About this creation
The Testarossa was one of the first four 4-wide cars I built last year, but I wasn't very satisfied with the front end (see V1.0 here). I tried some different shapes for it and finally a design very similar to my F40 was the best looking. I've already made this changes a few months ago but have always forgotten to take some photos.

So here it is:


Only a minimal change on the rear end: I used two 2x2 SNOT brackets instead of the 1x4 bracket to close the gap behind the rear wheels.
Only a minimal change on the rear end: I used two 2x2 SNOT brackets instead of the 1x4 bracket to close the gap behind the rear wheels.

The side view didn't change a lot, either. The front end is one stud longer now and with the new brackets the gap between the rear wheels and the rear bumper has been closed.

So this is V1.1 of my 4-wide Ferrari Testarossa.
I hope you like it! :-)

Update January 23, 2012:
A little rearrangement of plates and tiles on the rear roof section for V1.2:

Ryan and Tom, I think you were right, it looks better this way :-))

So this is V1.2 of my 4-wide LEGO Ferrari Testarossa

Update June 25, 2013:
A cool mod for a lot of extra fun:
Pullback motor! :-))

My 4-wide LEGO Ferrari Testarossa with the new pullback motor. The only visible difference is the white rear axle.

Extremely detailed, the newer roof profile is very nice and makes the shape smoother. I must get back into making 5 wides :)

I've just added two photos with V1.2. I think the rear roof section really looks better this way! Thanks Ryan and Tom! :-))

Joe, Patrick, Malte, Tom, Chinchilla, Nick, Ryan and Marcus: Thanks for your comments, I'm glad you like it :-))
Quoting Ryan Link ... the top could use some work in the rear half maybe, ...
Yes, it looks a little long in the side view because of the cheese wedges on the side. I could try a 1x1 plate instead of the 2nd cheese wedge. It would still look higher than the 1x1 tile and lower than the next cheese wedge.
Quoting DeTomaso Pantera ... the roof seems a little high, through to the back. Maybe lose the studs on the top and you have V1.2 ;-)
I always leave some studs to show that it's LEGO ;-)). But you are right, the postion for them is not perfect on this one. I could place the two studs in the middle of the roof (replace the two 1x3 tiles with two 1x2 tile and a 1x2 plate in the center). - Thanks to all of you for your constructive criticism, I appreciate that! Maybe you'll see a V1.2 soon ... :-))

Great! The front is awesome, but the whole thing is quite a gem.

I think the front is spot on, the top could use some work in the rear half maybe, but the back itself looks great. I like your technique for creating the blades on the side panels, great work!

This is cool Nils! I like the front a lot, the roof seems a little high, through to the back. Maybe lose the studs on the top and you have V1.2 ;-)
