Lego is marking a milestone celebration of 70 years of the iconic Chevrolet Corvette with an all-new set honoring the most resilient car nameplate on the market today. This eye-catching Lego Icons Chevy Corvette set pays tribute to the dynamic ’61 model, a defining vehicle in the Corvette’s rich history. The C1 design was the foundation for this commorative creation, but the ’61 iteration provided a fitting canvas to pay homage to this beloved classic.
The iconic LEGO sports car is back! The newly redesigned set features four headlights, white wall tires, and ‘chrome’ bumpers for a two-tone design. But the real treat lies beneath the hood – it has an opening hood with a detailed engine bay and a spinning radiator fan. You can also find three license plates and a detailed interior with a working steering wheel, a shifter, rearview mirror, and radio.
And to top it off, the model can be built as either a coupe or convertible so you can choose your favorite vehicle style. With 1,210 pieces in its kit, this LEGO set measures over 12.5 inches (32 cm) long, 4 inches (10 cm) tall, and 5.5 inches (14 cm) wide.
It’s value priced at $149.99 and will be available to VIPs starting on August 1st, followed by a wider release online and in LEGO stores on August 4th. So get ready to unleash your creativity and build the ultimate LEGO sports car today!
