Two New LEGO Summer 2022 Speed Champions Sets Revealed
14th June 2022
Earlier today two new summer LEGO Speed Champions sets were revealed, the Aston Martin DB5 (76911) and the Fast & Furious 1970 Dodge Charger R/T (76912). They were revealed by French retailer joueclub.fr who posted product listings on their website for the two new sets. LEGO fans will be no strangers to these vehicles as we have already seen them in LEGO sets (Creator Export Aston Martin DB5 & Technic Dom's Dodge Charger), albeit in a larger scale
The DB5 has 298 pieces, while the Dodge Charger has 345 pieces and both sets will continue the £17.99 / $19.99 price point for single vehicle Speed Champions sets. However those prices could increase by 25% if LEGO applies the same price increases it intends to apply to the 1970 Ferrari 512M, Lotus Evija and Lamborghini Countach in August.
Both of these sets look fantastic and the designer has done a great job of capturing the shape and dimensions of the vehicles. The Aston Martin DB5 set comes with interchangeable license plates as well as a James Bond minifigure which LEGO fans have long been requesting! The 1970 Dodge Charger also comes with a single minifigure of Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel).
This is also a first for the LEGO Speed Champions theme, where they are recreating famous movie vehicles in the 8 stud wide scale. This also potentially opens up the door for other famous vehicles to be turned into LEGO sets, such as the Beetle from Herbie, Starsky & Hutch's Ford Gran Torino or just other cars from the James Bond and Fast & Furious franchises.
These sets will be on sale from 1st August at Lego.com.
