That…. really does look like a Ford MustangThe latest addition to Lego’s line of classic cars is the iconic 1967 Ford Mustang, with an amazing recreation of the American muscle car.
It’s been obvious for a long while now that it’s not just kids that adults buy Lego for, sometimes it’s for themselves as well.
Many of the most expensive sets are clearly aimed at parents more than their children and none more so than the latest Creator Expert set, which recreates the 1967 Ford Mustang fastback in full brick-based glory.
The set follows in the wake of the James Bond Aston Martin DB5, as well as the likes of the Mini Cooper and Volkswagen Beetle, and is possibly the most realistic one yet.
It’s fully customisable tooAs with all the Lego Expert sets the model has been designed in conjunction with the original manufacturer, with Ford overseeing the look of the model and making sure it’s as realistic as it can be.
In a first for the series the set has working steering and a range of optional extras, as well as opening doors, trunk, and hood – where you can see the brick-built 390 V8 engine.
The rear axel can also be lifted up if you want your car to look just that little bit more intimidating.
Who cares what the kids think of itBut you can also customise it further with an optional supercharger, rear ducktail spoiler, beefier exhaust pipes, front chin spoiler, and a turbo boost-powering nitrous oxide tank (that, obviously, doesn’t contain any nitrous oxide).
The model is made up of 1,471 pieces and measure over 3” (10cm) high, 13” (34cm) long, and 5” (14cm) wide. The suggested age range is 16+ and the price is a surprisingly reasonable – considering how much some Lego sets cost – £119.99.
The set (number 10265) is available from 1 March, but you can only get it from official Lego stores and online shop.
