'Sheepo', also known as 27-year old engineering student, Fernando Benavides, makes amazing replica cars from Lego, from scratch, and his latest creation is possibly the best yet.

His take on the Caterham 7, a continuation of the ultra-lightweight Lotus 7, designed and first built by Lotus founder Colin Chapman in 1957, is a 1:7 scale masterpiece.

The car consists of 2500 pieces, and features a working five-speed gearbox, full suspension (double wishbone front, and de Dion live rear axle), disc brakes and full steering geometry ... all remote-controlled.
