We're just starting to see this year's car reveals from the Formula 1 teams and just ahead of that we have McLaren and LEGO announcing this collaboration for a Technic set of their 2022 F1 car. In the familiar orange and blue colour scheme and featuring a ton of the 2022 rule change details in the model, LEGO have really brought a fresh new Technic F1 car set here.
LEGO have kept us guessing, with Speed Champions release dates varying massively from their predictable January releases. We've finally gotten a look at the 2022 releases we're going to see - with Ferrari, Lamborghini and the legendary Mercedes-AMG Formula One car making appearances alongside the British Aston Martin and Lotus manufacturers. We've got our usual mix of historics with the Countach and 70s 512 M and right up to date with the hypercar Mercedes-AMG Project One and Aston Martin Valkyrie.
Continuing in the recend trend of a polybag set to support the year's Speed Champions range, we're going to see an Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro polybag this year. The exciting news is we're seeing a step up in width from 4 to 5 wide - giving the chance for more detail.
It's finally that time - with new set releases delayed, we've been waiting over a year to see some new releases in the Speed Champions line up and LEGO havent dissapointed, with six new sets and new brands like Koenigsegg and Toyota making their debuts. We've got Chevrolet, Dodge and Ford making up a US centric lineup, not to forget the McLaren Elva that we've already seen in polybag form. We've got all the details of these new sets due to hit shelves in June.
Taking the Porsche/LEGO collaboration to a new high, we're finally seeing a classic brick-based model of the Porsche 911 in a larger scale. We've got all the details of this new, two-builds in one set featuring the 911 Turbo and Targa models, and coming to the LEGO Store shortly for VIP members.
We're all done with our reviews of the first wave of 2020 Speed Champions releases. The six new models we've seen from five manufacturers, three of which are new to the brand mark the introduction of the new 8 wide format for models and we've been excited to get our hands on them.
Officially revealed today, our first official and detailed look at 2020's flagship LEGO Technic vehicle, the nearly 4,000 piece Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 set. In this stunning Lime Green/Gold Wheels colour matching the launch vehicle for the Sián this is probably LEGO's biggest release of the year. We've got all the details, from the internal mechanisms to most importantly, the price.
We'd reviewed the first Speed Champions polybag set, the Lamborghini Huracan, back in December but since then it's not been clear quite where LEGO were going to make it available (short of some sightings in toy retailers). In the UK at least, it seems LEGO have teamed up with Top Gear Magazine and a UK supermarket to make it available - find out how to get hold of it this month.
With only a few weeks to go before the release of the new (and as yet, unrevealed) Lamborghini ultimate creator series set on June 1, LEGO have posted a teaser trailer. With a few more details visible in the video we can confirm that, as we speculated back in January, we're looking at the set being of the Lamborghini Sian.
As announced/hinted at back in January, there's a new motorcycle addition to the Technic range from Ducati's V4 R Panigale. This bright red superbike is hitting the shelves in August and we've got the full set of pictures and details with it's release for pre-order.
