Website AutoMotto has this series of images showing a highly-detailed miniature replica of a Lamborghini Countach that transforms into a Sideswipe transformer's model. The car/robot was built entirely out of LEGOs by artist and designer Nathanael Kuipers.

From the article:

Making a deadly combo with Lego and a Lamborghini Countach, the artist has outdone himself immensely. Building the model on a 1:17 scale ratio, the designer feels he could have done better. But then, knowing that Lego is not exactly a very comfortable medium to use for sculptures, he did not let the fact bog him down.

The miniature version also has been created with a V12, downsized according to the model?s height, chrome tints, and a detachable engine cover. Adding to the beauty are the set of operable doors and a detachable hatch for revealing the gear stick and in-built hand brake. Sideswipe has been awarded a new Avatar, thanks to Nathanael Kuipers.
