Ford's Le Mans Victories in LEGO® Bricks

LEGOs Speed Champions: The Building Blocks of Future Dreamers

Many ideas begin with a simple thought and sometimes grow into something much bigger. And old-fashion mediums like molding clay and pencil sketches are still used in design studios today along with modern tools like 3D CAD, digital illustration, and 3D printing. LEGOs may lack the ability to do fluid curves but they are still excellent building blocks for kids of all ages.

Do you think LEGOs are just for kids? Well, think again. Lately, LEGOs are enjoying a resurgence in popularity with kids – young and old – and have become more than just a toy by ushering in a new era of creativity for a fresh generation. The options for growth are almost limitless and the number of new building kits being introduced shows no signs of slowing down.

To express your go-fast ego in small bricks, you can choose from 14 different kits for legos from the LEGO Speed Champions sets. Porsche, McLaren, Ferrari, Audi, Ford, and Chevrolet are already represented. In the near future, two more Speed Champions sets will be released: 2016 Ford GT and 1966 Ford GT40. The iconic Ford GT40 that won Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966 and the new Ford GT that also placed on the podium in 2016 are being brought to life in special LEGO kits that also include mini figures, checkered flag, and trophy.
