The 2021 LEGO Speed Champions sets have been revealed and you can officially consider us hyped for every single one of them. We have a bit of a LEGO addiction around here so any automotive LEGO set is something that is going to grab our attention instantly.
We had no idea when LEGO was going to release more Speed Champions sets or what cars would be featured, but thanks to European retailer JB Spielwaren, we know about all of the new LEGO Speed Champions sets that will kick off 2021.
There are some serious heavy hitters this time around, including the Toyota GR Supra and Koenigsegg Jesko. There’s much more than that but we’ll get into it shortly.
Before diving in, it should be noted that as mentioned previously, these images come from a European retailer and as we’re writing this post, none of these sets are on LEGO’s official website. That being said, there is a chance that some or all of these sets may be exclusive the European market.
Though, chances are at least some of these sets will make their way to the American market soon and when LEGO releases more information we’ll either post about it and/or update this article.
Alright, now that we’ve covered that, let’s take a closer look at all of the LEGO Speed Champions sets that have been revealed (in no particular order)
LEGO Speed Champions Toyota GR Supra (LEGO Set #76901)
We have no doubt that this set will likely be the best selling of the bunch. The A90 Toyota GR Supra is extremely popular right now and LEGO hasn’t produced many SPEED Champions sets of Japanese cars. While we wish LEGO would have opted to make a set from the Super GT version of the GR Supra, we’re more than happy with this one.
Chevrolet Corvette C8-R And 1968 Chevrolet Corvette C3 (LEGO Set #76903)
This is a two-for-one that features the old and the new. A classic Chevrolet ’63 Corvette Stingray comes paired with the brand new Corvette C8-R race car. As far as we can tell, this will be the first time the new C8 Corvette has been available in LEGO form.
LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Elva (LEGO Set #76902)
McLaren‘s super light speedster has only been public information for a few months so we’re pretty impressed that LEGO got to it so quickly. It would have been awesome if it came with a mini LEGO figure of Lando Norris but maybe that will be available later on.
MOPAR Dodge //SRT Top Fuel Dragster & 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A (LEGO Set #76904)
Here is another American Muscle two-for-one set. This time it’s a MOPAR Dodge-powered Top Fuel drag racer paired with a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A in the classic purple and black color scheme. We’re big fans of the way the Challenger looks in this set. The LEGO bricks actually do a good job of emulating the Challenger’s classic shape.
LEGO Speed Champions Koenigsegg Jesko (LEGO Set #76900)
Last but not least, is hyper-est of the hypercars, the Koenigsegg Jesko. Named after brand CEO Christian von Koenigsegg’s father, the Jesko is one of the fastest, most powerful road cars Koenigsegg has ever produced. The Jesko has a distinctively smooth shape so translating it to plastic bricks was likely a challenge for LEGO artisans but we’re still impressed with the result.
Ford GT Heritage Edition And Ford Bronco R (LEGO Set #76905)
The last set is another American car double-header. The FordFord GT heritage edition and Ford Bronco R is bound to be a highly sought after set. Especially considering how popular the new Bronco is right now. Like the C8 Corvette, this set is the first time the new Bronco has been seen in LEGO form
Those are all of the LEGO Speed Champions sets that are slated for release in 2021. At least that’s what we think. As mentioned before, technically none of these sets have been officially confirmed by LEGO (as of the time of this article) but these images look pretty legit. According to the JB Spielwaren retailer page, all of these sets are due to release on June 1st, 2021. However, that date may just be for the European market.
We’re hoping LEGO drops some official information on the new Speed Champions sets soon. In the meantime, let us know which one of these sets is your favorite in the comments below or tweet to us at @MotorworldHype.
