This is actually an older LEGO Ideas project that achieved 10,000 supporters but it hit the mark during Thanksgiving and I didn’t see it so here’s a post giving it some recognition. The Volkswagen Golf MK1 GTI project by hasskabal only took six weeks to get 10,000 supporters and it is the third most viewed project, as of this post, only behind Minecraft and Back to the Future – DeLorean Time Machine.
The project proposes 1,278 pieces and it is a replicate of the classic 1970’s Volkswagen Golf MK1 GTI. As you can see from the image below, the size of the car is about the same as other LEGO Creator vehicles that have already been released.
The Volkswagen Golf MK1 GTI now joins Boat Repair Shop, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “The Bus” Hulkbuster UCS, LEGO Store Modular Version, Red Dwarf, Landrover 4×4, Vintage Tram, 1950’s Diner, Ship in a Bottle, The Flagship Leviathan, Rey’s Speeder, and The Iron Giant as the projects that qualify the Third 2016 Review Stage.
