Lego Le Mans Ford GT Cars

Whether you are a racing fan or a just die hard LEGO guy, it’s hard not to get excited about the newly announced release from the plastic brick maker. Introducing the Lego Le Mans Ford GT Cars.

The two cars are modeled after the 1966 and 2016 winners of the oldest endurance race out there, Le Mans 24 Hours. The lead designer of the Speed Champions project, Craig Callum, took a lot of time and care putting these cars together. According to LEGO, they went through up to 10 different prototypes before finding something they were happy with. The finished product will include both cars, as well as miniature figures, a checkered flag, and a trophy. Thanks to all of that hard work on the part of the Danish company and Craig, grown up fans of racing and kids alike will be able to enjoy getting a close up look of these iconic cars. They’re expected to be released in March and will retail for around $37. [Purchase]
