The Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4’s price tag was beyond many petrol heads’ financial ability. Even if you could afford it, there was the question of limited quantity. For those who did not secure a unit for whatever reasons here’s a consolation: a model version.
Not just any model, though, it is an involved model because you gotta build it. Folks, meet the LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Countach (76908). I think it one-ups the real Countach reboot because it is based on the legendary model that started it all.
The set, which contains 262 pieces, lets you build a detailed LEGO replica of the iconic 1970’s supercar. It comes with a Lamborghini-branded driver, complete with a crash helmet, wig, and a wrench because it needs a driver who also knows how to do some maintenance.
When completed the LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Countach measures about 6 inches long, 2.5 inches wide, and 1.5 inches tall (15 x 7 x 4 cm). It is available now for US$19.99 a pop.
In related news, there is another iconic 70s supercar that joined the LEGO Speed Champions portfolio. It’s the 1970 Ferrari 512 M. If you ask me, I thought LEGO Speed Champions 1970 Ferrari 512 M (76906) is even more impressive than the Countach.
The 291-piece set accurately recreates the flowing lines of the race car with a lot of authentic details. A Minifigure also comes standard, dressed in a Ferrari racing suit and complete with a wig and crash helmet.
The LEGO Speed Champions 1970 Ferrari 512 M (76906) is also available as we speak for US$19.99.
For those who prefer a modern supercar, you may want to know the Lotus Evija is now a LEGO Speed Champions set too. The LEGO Speed Champions Lotus Evija (76907) contains 247 pieces and it is a pretty accurate representation of Lotus’ first all-electric hypercar.
Like sets in LEGO Speed Champions, it does come with a Minifigure in a Lotus racing suit in this instance and is equipped with a crash helmet, wig, and wrench. It is available now for US$19.99.
