This Working, Electric Lego Corvette ZR1 is Downright Awesome
Legos are cool, awesome, and all the superlatives you can throw in between. The things that you can create with these bricks are limited only by your imagination. What makes the toy even better are the things that you can do with it, like, say, add a fully functional electric powertrain on a Lego Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. One guy did exactly that, and he even created a video demonstration of his masterpiece. In the video, we see the Lego Technic Corvette ZR1 strapped on a dyno that’s made from — you guessed it — Lego bricks. What comes next is a four-minute video that’s going to make you want to buy a Technic Corvette ZR1, build your own dyno, and outfit your Lego ‘Vette with its own functional electric powertrain.
Someone Recreated The Entire GTE Pro Field From Le Mans 2018 As Lego Cars
The 2018 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans was a historic one for a number of reasons, chief among which being Toyota’s first-ever outright victory in a race the Japanese automaker had been trying to conquer for some three-and-a-half decades.
But, lower down the order, it was the GTE-Pro battle that kept us on the edge of our seats as for the first time in a long time no less than six manufacturers battled for glory in a 17-strong field that featured no weak driver pairing. Now, someone recreated that entire field in small-scale Lego models for all of us to enjoy.
You Can Own a Bentley Continental GT For As Little as $16
The Bentley Continental GT starts at over $220,000. It’s an expensive car that most of us can’t afford, so if you find yourself priced out of a Continental GT, there are ways to get one without having to spend an exorbitant amount of money. There is one catch, though: you can’t fit in any of them.
Bentley, in all its vexing might, has launched a series of Continental GT scale models, ranging from an affordable 1:64 scale model to a 1:8 scale model that’ll set you back around $10,000.

Most Anticipated 2020 Lego Speed Champions Car Sets
Lego won’t slow down its Speed Champions range expansion in 2020, which means one thing: we are in for some interesting new sets which, in case you didn’t get the memo, will be 25% larger (eight-stud wide instead of six-stud wide) than the previous ones, so this basically means more details without the use of stickers and the fact that you’ll be able to fit two mini-figures inside a car, as it will no longer use a centrally-mounted steering wheel setup.
The Danish toymaker has confirmed five 2020 Speed Champions sets so far, but in typical Lego fashion, we’re willing to bet that more builds are going to be announced along the way. In all fairness, we’re eager to get our hands on each and every of these sets, so that’s why we’ve included all of them below. Luckily, we won’t have to wait too much for them to hit the stores (physical or online, for that matter) as Lego’s planning to launch them on January 1, 2020. They’re not yet on sale, but we’ll update the article with extra links once they hit the market.
Best Lego Speed Champions Sets of 2019
2019 was a good year for Lego fans around the world, particularly for those who have learned to cherish the Danish toymaker’s Speed Champions sets, as the brand has been churning out some interesting builds.
What’s more, Lego isn’t keen on slowing down its Speed Champions charge, so 2020 is bound to bring its fair share of stunning car sets to our desks. We’ll treat that topic in a separate article, though, so for now, let’s see what were 2019’s best Lego Speed Champions sets.
LEGO Speed Champions Introduces a Nissan GT-R NISMO We Can All Afford
The Nissan GT-R NISMO is the latest supercar to join the ranks of LEGO’s Speed Champions line, adding another drool-worthy car kit to a lineup of brick sets that already includes the Ferrari F40, MINI Cooper, McLaren Senna, and Dodge Demon.
The Nissan-LEGO partnership was struck in part to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Japanese nameplate, and one of the early offsprings of that partnership is this 298-piece Nissan GT-R NISMO Speed Champions kit that will surely be a hot ticket item when it arrives sometime in January 2020. All car kits that are a part of LEGO’s 2020 Speed Champions lineup will also be bigger by 25 percent compared to previous versions. If for nothing else, the LEGO Nissan GT-R NISMO will look a lot more life-like than past Speed Champions cars.
Is It Possible to Like This Custom LEGO Tesla Cybertruck More Than the Real Thing?
The Tesla Cybertruck has now been immortalized in LEGO form, except that it’s not an official LEGO creation. The custom LEGO build comes to us by way of Peter Blackert, and the details involved in this build are nothing short of impressive. Using only his creativity, Blackert was able to recreate a scaled version of the Cybertruck, complete with the Cyberquad and what we only assume to be a LEGO version of no less than Elon Musk himself.
There are a lot of things that are cool about this LEGO version of the Tesla Cybertruck, and while we don’t know if LEGO will actually offer an official version of the truck, we’re more than happy to use Blackert’s version as a peg to create our own LEGO Cybertrucks.
Top Gear’s Rally Car Gets The LEGO Technic Treatment
The recently announced marriage between LEGO and Top Gear has given birth to its first child. No, it’s not a LEGO Stig - it’s the Top Gear GT Rally Car, and it’s not your typical LEGO set. It’s a creation of LEGO Technic, which means that you can expect it to be trickier and far more complicated than your run-of-the-mill build. The Top Gear GT Rally Car is the first of what should be a series of kits that will be co-created by LEGO and Top Gear. There’s no word on what the future products will look like, but you can expect this set to go on sale at the end of the year.
The New Michael Keaton Lego DC Batman Car is Two-Foot of Childhood Dreams Come True
One of the most important Hollywood cars is about to get the LEGO treatment. In what could be the best LEGO car of all time, the iconic Batmobile from the 1989 Batman movie has now been immortalized in bricks. Otherwise known as the 1989 Tim Burton Batmobile, this LEGO car is a showstopper when fully built and a huge challenge to actually build. It’s made up of 3,306 pieces, which is around 200 fewer pieces than the LEGO Bugatti Chiron. The LEGO Batmobile, which arrives in time for the Tim Burton film’s 30th anniversary and the 80th anniversary of the Batman character, will be released on November 29 (Black Friday) at a price of $250.
