Lamborghini Aventador A-E2 . Ultimate Papercraft Supercar

Featured

Having completed my Lamborghini Aventador Hot Pursuit papercrafts in early part of 2013, I got an unsettling urge to build another big model, after a two year break since my 7ft Gundam project. The idea was to build a near-life-size replica of my Aventador Interceptor model, but small enough that I could get it out of my house. After proposing the idea to my wife, she dared me to it and the challenge was on!

For this project I experimented with new materials, new techniques, and larger prints than any of my previous papercraft models. The name Aventador A-E2 is derived from the Architectural E2 paper sheets used for the prints, mounted to thick chipboard material for added strength.

Overall I am very pleased with the final outcome of this experiment. I learned many new lessons and the artwork makes a great display on my wall. The completed model measures 8' x 3.8' x 2.1' (244 x 115 x 63cm), weighs 25lb (11.3kg), making it my biggest and heaviest papercraft model to date. ...Did I mention most expensive? The cost for printing and materials set me back $1,000, but the creative experience was well worth it.

Watch this video to see how this gigantic papercraft was assembled.

I've always been a fan of paper modeling, you've taken it to the next level, very nice! I know, (for I have it), there is a Pmodel of the Tyrrell P34, but not in your giant scale!!

Thanks! Taking it to the extreme is the way I like it.

just awesome...but for $1,000 dollars expense is a no no...for me
If I was going to spend $1,000 I'd have to put a motor and RC system in it!

All of that carefully engineered high speed aerodynamics... only to be ruined by a light bar.
That bar makes a low pressure zone behind it along the top of the car reducing acceleration, braking, and cornering control at high speed.
Of course, cops aren't intelligent enough to know about these things anyway.
A lot of cops are intelligent enough to know these types of things and I've seen some light bars that are aerodynamically sound...but the paper pushing bureaucrats that make purchasing decisions are usually a different matter altogether. These cars and the officers who drive them definitely deserve something more than such an incongruous travesty.

omg: you should make one that could fit around a bicycle, then drive it around: like this guy did: bicycle porsche (http://youtu.be/GaQB_tgS7f0)

Great job, now you just need to scale up to 1:1 and use aliuminium.
visualspicer (author)  latexmallard7 months ago
Lamborghini already do that. I'm going for something more original. ;)

Great Car and awesome work!!
The Verse got me! It came up just as I finished a call about some work which I was worried about not taking up because I do not know much about that field. This is the same Verse I have written on a card and carry in my wallet and see first whenever I open it!! Wonderful - and thanks for the inspiration!
visualspicer (author)  dalythomas7 months ago
That's awesome. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
Thanks so much I think I will buy the kit it's cheap.
