To pay homage to such an icon, we’re releasing a new set based on the Chevrolet Camaro Z28, a model that is considered one of the best-loved Camaros in history and is certain to be a hit with car lovers.
It will also join the line-up of some other iconic classic vehicles that have become LEGO® sets over the years. So, as we launch the Chevrolet Camaro Z28, we thought we’d take a drive down memory lane and remind you about some of the best LEGO car sets for adults. Start your engines and away we go!

LEGO® 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 grey when it comes to the color of the striping and choose which headlights you want to display.
LEGO® 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® 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 Fiat 500
Next, we move on to a delicious dose of high Italian style. The LEGO® Creator Expert Fiat 500 set is based on the Fiat 500F, a legend from the late 1960s and another model that continues into production to this very day.
It’s impossible to see a Fiat 500 without imaging it on the swinging streets of Rome or parked outside a pizzeria in a sleepy Italian town. Newcomers and Fiat fans alike will appreciate all the authentic details in this LEGO vintage car, like the luggage rack with suitcase, detailed interior, and opening roof, doors, hood and tailgate. If you want a taste of La Dolce Vita, then this is the set for you.
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, bonnet 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® Vespa 125
Back to stylish Italian sophistication and another icon of Italian design. Inspired by the classic 1960’s Vespa, this two-wheeled legend includes a brick-build engine with removable cove, 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.
