Perfect for gearheads of all ages who also like to build, these Lego cars come in a wide variety of designs. Each falls under the Speed Champions, Creator, or Technic lines, which feature gradually increasing levels of difficulty, respectively. If you’re a fan of flashy racing cars, our list has lots to offer, like the Mercedes-AMG GT3 or the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. If, instead, you’re partial to classic automobiles, you’ll certainly appreciate the Mini Cooper 10242 or the Volkswagen T1 10220.
In today’s update, we added the Lamborghini 76899, a set that was released just a few weeks prior to this writing, yet is quickly becoming a popular seller. It features not one, but two racing vehicles: The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo and the Lamborghini Urus ST-X. They boast ultra-cool color schemes of bright green, as well as black and gold, and come with two race driver minifigures. The combined total piece count is 663. It should be noted that in 2020, Lego has started increasing the size of its Speed Champions models, which are now 25% larger than previous ones – meaning they’re eight-stud wide instead of six-stud wide. As such, you’ll be able to fit two minifigures inside the cockpits, and a centrally mounted steering wheel is no longer necessary. This model replaces the McLaren 720S on our list, which is not a very realistic representation of the real deal, when compared to how well other sets stack up to their real-life counterparts.
For any classic race car lover, the Ferrari F40 10248 and the Ford Mustang GT 75871 are also worthy of a look. Both feature eye-catching, sporty colors and fun details like authentic logos and realistic replicas of the V8 engines. The Mustang comes with a minifigure with a tool and interchangeable wheel trims, to add to the role-playing fun.
No matter which you choose, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s stated age guidelines before giving any of these sets to a child, and always supervise them with their toys for a safe playtime.
