Here’s a nice one from Lego. The 1967 Ford Mustang, in iconic fastback form and the most famous paintjob available, is the next legend you can build for yourself. This new Lego Creator Expert set will be available from March 1.

Made up of 1,470 pieces, the Lego muscle car comes with a working steering, dark-blue bodywork, white racing stripes, bonnet scoop, printed Mustang grille badge, GT emblems, and five-spoke rims with “road-gripping tyres”.

Measuring over 10 cm high, 34 cm long and 14 cm wide, the ‘Stang will give budding builders the chance to customise their ride thanks to a collection of optional add-ons. Options include a supercharger, rear ducktail spoiler, beefy exhaust pipes, front chin spoiler and a nitrous oxide tank. Yup, NoS.

The replica also allows owners to store items in the boot or lift the hood to reveal a detailed big block 6.4 litre V8 engine with battery, hoses and air filter detailing. The rear axle can be lifted “for an extra-mean look”, the doors can be opened and the roof panel removed to give access to the interior.

Inside, you’ll find classic seats, a radio, working steering and a mid-console gearshift. A printed Mustang grille badge, GT emblems and a selection of license plates add the final touches.

The Lego Creator Expert Ford Mustang retails for 129.99 euros (RM600) in Germany and £119.99 in the UK. Check out Lego’s previous car efforts such as this Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the epic 3,599-piece 1:8 Bugatti Chiron.
