The new LEGO Speed Champions sets will be available starting in March and one of the new ones that I was very looking forward to building was the 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback (75884). It is one of the two Ford that will be releasing in this wave. I don’t have the piece count because this is the European version of the set and it will probably retail for $14.99.

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.
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.
“We worked closely with LEGO to design a vintage Mustang, personalizing the fastback with stripes and decals that harken back to Ford’s racing heritage,”
