I was never a fan of LEGO Speed Champions series, but the upcoming LEGO 75898 Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY may change my mind.
LEGO teases an image of the newly announced Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 car along with a LEGO version a few days ago. Ever since, I have been digging around the Internet for more details and here are what I have found.
First thing first. The set is real and it will be part of the LEGO Speed Champions series that will drop on January 01, 2020. The pair will be the first of the Speed Champions line to use a new 8-stud-wide design, thus affording more details including side-by-side seating for two minifigures and air gap between the wheels and body on the I-PACE model. Cool!
In a related news, Jaguar Racing is also teaming up with Scalextric to create slot-car versions of Jaguar’s race cars. Sweet.
As far as LEGO 75898 Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY goes, it is still under development. That said, pricing is obviously not known at this point.
