The past couple of years, toymaker Lego has put out Speed Champions sets that allow hobbyists to put together a variety of supercars and muscle cars from the stick-together blocks.
These sets are usually announced by Lego at the beginning of the year, but there’s been no official word on Speed Champions 2021 so far.
However, a German website called Promobricks is reporting that there will indeed be Speed Champions for this year, and for Corvette fans, that’s good news because the Corvette C8.R and 1968 Corvette are both said to be included in one of the sets.
Both Corvettes include 512 pieces each and will cost about $50, according to the Promobricks story.
The C8.R will be gray with yellow and black accents, while the ’68 Stingray will be red.
Also said to be featured for 2021 are:
- Koenigsegg Jesko (280 parts for 19.99 euros or about $25) – white with lime green and black accents.
- Toyota GR Supra (299 parts for 19.99 euros or about $25) – yellow.
- McLaren Elva (263 parts for 19.99 euros or about $25) – blue.
- Mopar Dodge/SRT Top Fuel Dragster and 1970 Dodge Challenger (627 parts for 59.99 euros or about $73) – black and yellow dragster and purple Challenger.
Promobricks believes the Speed Champions sets will be released in June.
