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.
“Metamorphosis” is the title of this 30-second video spot from the Dodge YouTube channel that highlights the latest products from the partnership between the automaker and LEGO Group. (video: Dodge/FCA)
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.
“We are thrilled to bring the exciting Dodge designs to a LEGO build and play experience that is sure to capture the imaginations of not only LEGO fans, but also car lovers and the passionate community of Dodge enthusiasts around the world,” said Chris Stamp, senior designer, LEGO Group.
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.
Dodge says that a limited number of the model car sets can be ordered via its website Dodge.com
