LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720S (75880) Official Images

LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720S (75880)

A few weeks ago, LEGO revealed the new LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720s (75880) and there are now official images of the set. There are some slight differences between these images and the ones from before. The McLaren 720s itself seems to be the same however the designer minifigure’s hair is different.

LEGO design manager Craig Callum did an interview with Top Gear and he gave some details about the set as well as the LEGO Speed Champions theme.

The McLaren 720S (75880) will be available later this year for probably $14.99, similar to the other single vehicle sets.

LEGO has revealed the new LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720S (75880) over on their Facebook Page. There isn’t much information on it but it does say that it will be available in June. I’m assuming that it will be the same size and the $14.99 price point as the individual Speed Champions vehicles.

Update: DriveTribe has more images of the McLaren 720S. The set will also include a McLaren designer instead of a driver and his design office desk.

LEGO Speed Champions 2017 Press Release

LEGO Speed Champions Ford GT 2016 & Ford 1966 GT40 (75881)

LEGO has released a press release regarding the 2017 wave of LEGO Speed Champions sets. The set that is referenced is the 2016 Ford GT & 1966 Ford GT40 (75881).

NOVEMBER 29, 2016

Designed to Inspire Tomorrow’s Racing Drivers, Engineers and Designers – Ford’s Le Mans Victories in LEGO® Bricks

• Ford race cars that won 1966 and 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours will be available as part of the exclusive LEGO® Speed Champions range of models

• New kit brings to life iconic Ford GT40 and today’s Ford GT race car. Minifigures, chequered flag and trophy will help to bring famous victories to life again and again

• Designing the exclusive kit was a “dream project” for LEGO design lead Craig Callum, a former car designer who races Fords in his spare time

COLOGNE, Germany, Nov. 29, 2016 – It’s a gift 50 years in the making that could set your child on the path to becoming a racing legend. The iconic Ford GT40 and new Ford GT that won Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966 and 2016 are being brought to life in LEGO® bricks.

The new LEGO Speed Champions set will include both cars as well as racing driver minifigures, a chequered flag and even a trophy to make it easy to recreate those history-making victories.

“Many people in my team grew up with the legend of Ford’s history-making 1966 victory – and experienced the excitement of building and design for the first time through LEGO bricks,” said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. “This kit is a powerful way to tell our Le Mans story, and will hopefully inspire the race drivers, engineers, and designers of the future.”

Ford won at Le Mans earlier this year after returning to the scene of what was a historic 1-2-3 clean sweep 50 years previously. The LEGO Group worked closely with Ford’s design and licensing teams on every detail of the 1966 winning car, and the new Ford GT race car.

“This was a dream project – with a lot of pressure. The Ford GT40 is one of the most iconic race cars of all time, and the new Ford GT is just incredible,” said Craig Callum, head of design, LEGO Speed Champions. “Designed for children, but with grown-ups fans in mind too, we know these models will be closely scrutinized for authenticity.”

Callum, who in his spare time races a Ford Model A hot-rod, and started out as a designer of full-sized cars, helped develop ten prototypes before the final versions of each model were selected, all created from existing LEGO bricks.

You can watch Callum assemble the new kit in record time here.
