The new 2018 wave of the LEGO Speed Champions sets will be coming out very soon and Ford has released a press release for their 1968 Mustang Fastback. This set will join five other sets in the wave and we’ll be taking a look at all of these sets when they become available.

LEGO Speed Champions Mustang Fastback (75884)

Ford and LEGO® are celebrating Ford’s heritage by adding a 1968 Mustang fastback race car to the LEGO Speed Champions lineup.

As a tribute to America’s favorite sports car, the 183-piece Ford Mustang kit features green bodywork with gold dual stripes and wheels, race graphic stickers, removable windscreen and a mini-figure driver wearing a classic racing suit. For added fun, the race car set includes a Ford-branded timing board.

“The new Ford Mustang LEGO Speed Champions set gives parents and children the chance to share their passions – generations of fans have grown up building LEGO sets and spending time together behind the wheel,” said Myra Lind, LEGO Speed Champions marketing manager. “This partnership of iconic brands allows kids of all ages to enjoy the latest products from two great companies.”

As a natural fit for the new 2018 Mustang launch – the most personalized Mustang ever – Ford’s Design and Licensing teams worked closely with LEGO to create a 1968 Mustang fastback race car set that speaks to the passion, creativity and personalization pony car fans will appreciate.

On sale March 1, the 1968 Ford Mustang joins the historic Ford GT40 and new Ford GT race cars, Ford F-150 Raptor high-performance off-road truck, a Ford Fiesta WRC rally car, a classic Ford hot rod and a 2015 Ford Mustang as part of the LEGO Speed Champions Ford collection.

LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720S (75880)

There is now an official image of the box art for the upcoming LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720S (75880) coming out of Carscoops. We’ve already seen the product images last month which shows that instead of the drivers we’re used to getting, we’re actually getting a designer and his desk with a drawing board. There’s no word on piece count or pricing but I assume it’ll be at $14.99 like the other single car sets.
