Folks, meet the LEGO 42138 Technic Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. That’s right. It is the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 immortalized as a LEGO set. We are not often thrilled by Technic automobiles but holy mother of… this iteration of the modern legend using LEGO Technic elements is almost spot on.
It is not a big set, though – coming at just 544 pieces – but this also means it is easy on your wallet. Or US$49.99 to be precise. Even better is, it is not a static set; the LEGO 42138 Technic Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 actually packs two pull-back motors so you can send it speeding across the floor using pull-back action.
In addition, this set supports augmented reality. Using the LEGO Technic AR app, you can put the car to the test on a virtual racetrack.
When completed, the LEGO 42138 Technic Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 measures over 3 inches high, 10.5 inches long, and 4.5 inches wide (8 x 27 x 12 cm).
From the product images, the details are pretty up there, and most importantly for fans of Shelby American, it has the iconic cobra logo. Sweet.
The LEGO 42138 Technic Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is available now, limited to 3 units per account, on LEGO.com for the aforementioned US$49.99.
