Don’t get us wrong. As LEGOs in their own universe, they are superb. But they were far off the real car.
Of course, LEGO’s blocky nature doesn’t really translate well onto smaller scale round things such as cars. But still, some models were not that great looking.
This is where LEGO’s 1960s Ford Mustang comes in. It might just be LEGO’s best vehicle model yet. The Mustang isn’t tat boxy, but LEGO has finally been able go capture the overall look and feel of the car.
The model doesn’t have large opened sections, it has the main lines or the car right and offers a realistic looking front. And we can see LEGO has introduced new parts, like the curved pieces for the hood. The wheels and rims are also spot on.
The LEGO Ford Mustang comes in at 1470 pieces. You can open the doors and even remove the roof panel to access the interior. The interior is detailed, the steering works and so on. You also have a fully functional trunk and a working LEGO V8 engine with hoses, air filter and a battery.
Finally, the Mustang measures over 3” (10cm) high, 13” (34cm) long and 5” (14cm) wide when complete. You will also have the option to add a tuner kit on it with sporty bumpers, bigger engine and a spoiler. Sales will start on March 1, 2019 and the price is $149.99.
