Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 '14
Scale 1:8. Full motorized. 5+R speed sequential gearbox, disc brakes and more.
About this creation
This is the secret car that I showed in the Lego Fan Weekend two weks ago.

The Mustang is one of the most famous cars in the world since 1964 with its first generation.
One year after the Mustang was released, Ford wanted a enhanced version of its car for run at the same level of its rivals in the US races. To design this car Ford hired the driver and car designer Carroll Shelby (1923-2012).





The first Mustang modified by Shelby was the GT350, released in 1965, and the next year(1966) Ford and Shelby showed the legendary Shelby GT500. The collaboration between Shelby and Ford continues today.
And this is my interpretation of the current version of that historic collaboration.

The real one.










This creation is made in scale 1:8. The total size is: 75 studs of length, 29 wide and 21 of high (60x23x17 cm)

The weight is 3.1 kgs, with around 3500 parts and 5 motors.




It includes some remote controlled functions:
- Steering (M motor)
- Drive (2 L motors)
- Sequential gearbox (PF Servo motor)
- Disc brakes (M motor)







The sequential gearbox is an improved version of my previous Caterham ones (3rd Gen V2), with 5+R and auto-clutch.

The speeds ratio:

R - 2.08:1
1 - 1.67:1
2 - 1.25:1
3 - 1:1
4 - 1:1.33
5 - 1:1.67

The max speed in 5th speed is 3 kph (~2 mph)
It has a gear indicator in the interior, between the front seats.




V8 fake engine under the bonnet.




A complete bodywork with openable doors, bonnet and rear truck hood.
The bonnet can be opened from the interior using a little lever just front of the right seat.
Also the doors have lock, you need turn the door handle to open it.




It has 4 full size seats and folding front seats.




For make more easy the gearbox tests the car in has a rear support to keep the rear axle lifted




The suspension is based in the real one: front McPherson axle and a rear 4-links live axle.

The front axle also has advenced geometry: Camber angle(2), caster angle(3.5) and kingpin angle(7)







The steering has ackerman geometry and working steering wheel.

The car also has working disc brakes in all wheels, they are very powerfull and includes functional brake pedal.




Now the "most wanted" picture for technic fans:




Like the real one, this creation has unibody frame. The roof is part of the frame too, it improve a lot the torsional stiffness.




You can disassemble the whole car in less than 3 minutes. But you will need a little bit more time to reassemble it again...





COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE COMING SOON!!


Finally as always a little video:

I can tell now that the lever is part of the advancement mechanism, but I just can't tell how it works.

What does that lever for the gearbox do exactly? I can see its important, but I can't quite tell how... Also I assume that the brakes are basically the same as in the Porsche.

I'm really curious as to how you did the rear brakes?

Really impressive as well as inspiring to see what can be achieved with Technic and a creative mastermind. The video is very convincing, although the speed seems a bit low.

I've seen this MOC before, but I still have to comment on it here -- It is awe-inspiring. The technical features and physical details are perfect. The picture from the side really shows how well you've matched the contours of the real Mustang, and the front grille looks fantastic as well. Add to that some incredible Technic functions (I really like the disc brakes), and this is one of the all-time great Technic car MOCs.

Wow, amazing, it has all the Technic goodies just like the real car. Suspesion angles, Ackermann steering, sequential gearbox, ... Wow! I'm impressed! Great job, again! (O, si quieres: D.P.M.!) :-))
