The perfect muscle car to hoon in isolation

Here’s another reason for Fast and Furious fans to jump for joy. The franchise teamed up with Lego to build Dom Toretto’s Charger and the end result is just as smashing as the Fast and Furious muscle car. Plus, given the whole coronavirus isolation thing going on globally, getting the set will offer a massive boost for any gearhead’s morale these days.

What’s special about the Lego Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger set?

For starters, this is a Technic set, which means a lot of gimmicks are on the menu. Technic lets Lego create features like working engines, gearboxes, and whatnot, and Dom’s Charger makes no exception.

Counting 1,007 pieces, the 1:13-scale car is suitable for kids aged above 10 and features an open hood that lets out a massive supercharger slapped onto a V-8 engine with moving pistons.

What’s more, the car sits on a double wishbone suspension setup and sports a working steering system as well, plus an air blower, nitro bottles hidden in the trunk, and a fire extinguisher in the cockpit.

Heck, Lego Technic even fitted the muscle car with a kickstand of sorts that positions it in a wheelie stance, with the front axle completely off the ground, just how Dominic Toretto likes to start his drag races off the line.

Where and when can I buy the Lego Technic Dom’s Charger set?

Pre-orders are officially open as of March 30 on LEGO.com, although you’ll have to wait for at least four weeks before the car reaches showrooms around the world starting from April 27, 2020. The set retails for $199 and in case you’re not a fan of it for some reason, maybe you can make a gift out of it. A future petrolhead will no doubt thank you someday.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read More
