LEGO set names just keep getting longer. This is the new Speed Champions 76899 Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X set, the latest in LEGO’s rather excellent line of officially licensed real-world vehicles. Joining the likes of Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, McLaren, Jaguar, and Mini, plus VW Group brands Porsche and Audi, Lamborghini (another brand within the Volkswagen empire) are the latest manufacturer to partner with LEGO’s Speed Champions range.
The new set brings two Lamborghini cars to bedroom floors around the world, the marvellous Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and the hideous Urus ST-X. Each model is built in LEGO’s new 8-wide scale, includes a mini-figure driver, and deploys an array of stickerage to add visual realism (or cheat, depending on your point of view), with the Huracán looking rather lovely and the Urus spectacularly ugly, so correct on both counts.
The obligatory start/finish gantry that seems to be included in every Speed Champions set makes an appearance as expected, whilst another 660-odd pieces make up the two cars. 76899 will reach stores imminently, and whilst we do really hate that Urus, adding Lamborghini cars to the LEGO line-up (even if one is a Urus) is a welcome move. More please LEGO!
Aaaand we’re back with car! And what a car. This is a Lamborghini Huracan Performante, the track-focussed, more powerful, lighter weight version of the V10 supercar.
This stunning Technic recreation of the Performante comes from newcomer Jerry LEGO Creations who has not only captured the Huracan’s visuals brilliantly in Technic form, there’s a working V10 engine driven by all four wheels, all-wheel suspension with anti-rollbars, working steering, opening doors and hood, and a detailed interior too.
A proper Technic Supercar then, and there’s more to see of Jerry’s spellbinding build at the Eurobricks forum. Click the link above to make the jump.
We’ve blogged quite a few classic vehicles here at The Lego Car Blog recently, so to bring a bit of balance we’d like to post a duo of cars so newly-released we’ve not even seen them on the road yet. Luckily though, the Elves rediscovered the page of our very promising Featured TFOL Alexander Paschoaletto, and his two latest cars; the 2014 Lamborghini Huracán, and the 2014 Subaru WRX STI*.
Making modern cars is getting harder, with lots of curves and angles appearing on everything from city runabouts to limited-run exotica, but Alexander has managed to pull off the curves found on these two nicely. See more of both creations via the links to Alexander’s pages.
*Our American readers may think the Subaru should read ‘2015’. Our marketing department refuses to time travel.
