A Countach reduced to brick
Legendary Lamborghini Countach reaches the catalog In the most iconic bodywork look that clearly evokes late-career LP500 S Quatrovalvole versions, as evidenced by the majestic rear spoiler and body kit under the front bumper. The wheels with five circular holes are reproduced using decals. And the quad exhaust sound immediately sets the tone. As you can tell, despite its flawless white hue, this isn’t a revived hybrid version of the Countach LPI 800-4, but maybe later (but at this scale and with this mounting method the difference isn’t very obvious). The car is white with a contrasting red dashboard. The kit consists of 262 pieces.

Lotus Evija available on Lego
The second innovation is the Lotus Evija hypercar, presented in an English green look enriched with yellow elements, a two-tone shell that perfectly matches the brand’s colours. With a skillful set of stickers, the cockpit, while identical to that of the aforementioned Lamborghini, looks clearly different. An example of a successful trompe l’oeil. Two wheel models with five or nine spokes are in the program according to your request. The kit consists of 247 pieces. Both are faithfully reproduced, which isn’t always the case with the Speed Champions series.
Motor racing in the veins
Finally, Lego also presents a faithful reproduction of the 1970 Ferrari 512 M, which the manufacturer is dedicated to endurance racing and specifically participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. For those who like more modern cars, the manufacturer offers two kits: one in Mercedes-AMG and the other in Aston Martin colors. The first proposes to put together an F1 and the famous “Project One” project, a hypercar with more than 1,000 hp. The other box consists of Valkyrie AMR Pro and Vantage GT3. Two race cars that come with 2 pilot minifigures in overalls, helmets and adjustable wrenches. All these new Lego items will be released from 1st.private March 2022. Prices range from €19.99 for iconic models to €39.99 for kits consisting of two vehicles.
