And they look awesome.
Playing with Lego bricks used to be considered a children's pastime, but the company has successfully managed to pivot towards an adult customer base with more technical kits and has done a great job of drawing in petrol heads with its intricate tributes to modern sports cars. The company has recently announced a new range of Speed Champions sets which include some modern supercars and even SUVs such as the stunning McLaren Elva, and Ford Bronco R. These sets are aimed at young and old and don't look too complicated to build, but the end result looks so cool, we'd be happy to display them in the CarBuzz office.
The first, and possibly coolest of the new range is the Koenigsegg Jesko. This kit consists of only 280 pieces and includes cool little details such as the trademark swooping wing. This kit will set you back around $28. Another gorgeous supercar, the McLaren Elva is a 263-piece kit and does an excellent job of replicating the real thing in plastic blocks. This kit is also priced at around $28. The Toyota GR Supra is one of the boldest offerings. This 299 piece kit is offered in a striking yellow color and features a removable hardtop.
Two Chevrolet Corvette models are on offer: the mean Corvette C8-R, and the classic 1968 Chevy Corvette. The best part is that they come in the same kit which consists of 512 pieces. With two cars in the set, the price rises to $55.50. Dodge is represented by an SRT Top Fuel Dragster, and a 1970 Dodge Challenger, both included in the same package for $83.50. Finally, Ford makes an appearance with a dual set consisting of a Ford GT Heritage Edition, and a Ford Bronco R. This 660 piece kit goes for around $70. We'll have one of each.
