LEGO’s Speed Champions range has recently expanded. Not just in number, like your Mom’s list of past boyfriends, but in girth, just like your Mom. As revealed here last month the new Speed Champions sets have adopted increased dimensions, going from from six studs in width to eight. This brings with it an increased level of realism as well as the ability for two mini-figures to fit side-by-side.
One of LEGO’s previous Speed Champions sets, the 75884 Ford Mustang, now looks a little thin by comparison, so Joao Campos of MOCpages has given it a thorough update to match the new 8-wide Speed Champions scale.
Suggested by a reader, Joao’s classic Ford Mustang Fastback looks every bit as good as LEGO’s latest Speed Champions releases, and whole lot better than the already decent official set (which you can see pictured alongside it in the images above)
With only 230 parts Joao’s Mustang also looks to be an easy recreation for other builders to try, particularly those that own the official 75884 set already. Head to Joao’s Ford Mustang page on MOCpages to see the complete gallery of images.
