LEGO® Icons Chevrolet Camaro Z28

With the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 set, you can expect iconic details like the classic twin rally stripe running through its hood and trunk, a detailed engine based on the original V8, a functioning steering mechanism, as well as opening doors to show off the interior. Oh, and did we mention, it’s a convertible? Whether you want something stunning to sit on your shelf or to imagine yourself cruising the sun-kissed highways of the USA, this is sure to be one of the best LEGO cars for adults and will be the perfect set for you.

There are even ways to customize your Camaro. Choose between red, white and gray when it comes to the color of the striping and choose which headlights you want to display.

LEGO® Icons Porsche 911

There’s an old expression that perfectly sums up the Porsche 911: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This iconic German sports car debuted in 1963 and has been in continuous production ever since, with only minor adjustments and modernizations along the way. After all, it is one of the most successful competition cars ever and one of the most iconic sports cars in history, so why change it?

The LEGO® Icons Porsche 911 set features authentic details like the front and rear bumpers, angled headlights, printed logo and license plates. And the interior is just as impressive with working steering, gearstick, emergency brake, tilting seats and a dark-orange-and-nougat color scheme. You’ll have the choice of building the Turbo model with a turbo-charged engine or the Targa with a removable roof stored under the hood.

LEGO® Creator Expert Ford Mustang

Just one look at this 1960s American muscle car and you can almost hear the rumble of the engine and smell the scent of burning rubber. The LEGO® Creator Expert Ford Mustang recreates this iconic car with dark-blue bodywork with white racing stripes, air scoop, printed Mustang grille badge, GT emblems and 5-spoke rims with road-gripping tires.

You can even pop the hood for a look at the detailed V8 engine or customize your car with a supercharger, ducktail spoiler or four-pipe exhaust. And if fast isn’t fast enough, you can add a nitrous oxide tank in the trunk, so that no one will be able to keep up with you.

LEGO® Icons Vespa 125

We present stylish Italian sophistication and an absolute icon of Italian design. Inspired by the classic 1960’s Vespa, this two-wheeled legend includes a brick-built engine with removable cover, realistic steering, spare wheel and a functioning kickstand. This scooter also comes with two seats, a basket with a bouquet of flowers and a stylish helmet, just perfect for being displayed in your home.
