Dodge and LEGO Deliver Palm-Sized Challenger SRT Demon – New Speed Champions Set

By Steve & Tamami Laser

Over the years, we’ve owned more than 20 collector cars. While we don’t have any full-size vintage vehicles or muscle cars right now, our toy box is overflowing with scale models. A new dynamic duo announced today by Dodge and LEGO® is the latest addition to our wish list.

Designed for fans of all ages, a new building set from LEGO® Speed Champions includes a “race ready” Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and vintage Dodge Charger R/T.

Leah Pritchett (above), National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) drag racing champion, holds the LEGO® Challenger SRT Demon in her hand following performance driving in the full-size muscle car on a closed-circuit course.

In addition to the two cars, the LEGO® Speed Champions set includes goodies like a trio of mini-figures (drivers for both cars plus a race marshal).

The buildable 2018 Challenger has a removable windshield, two sets of wheels with rubber tires, dual exhaust, a rear spoiler, and decorative stickers. The vintage 1970 Charger is similarly equipped and also features a removable supercharger, alternate engine cover, and translucent light-style detailing.
