As Ford puts it, “There are few cars on the road that are as instantly recognizable as the Ford Mustang, and it’s exciting to see the iconic car’s combination of design and heritage come through in this LEGO set.”
Custom Mustang with Options & Add-ons
LEGO Creator Expert Design Lead, Jamie Berard, ensured builders a chance to really customize this car with a collection of optional add-ons. But unlike other LEGO sets, this classic pony won’t convert into a motorcycle, boat, or some off-roader — customize how you wish, this Mustang will always be instantly recognizable and stay to its true form.
Berard says, “The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic, symbolic cars in history – and to bring this fan favourite muscle car to life in brick form, with this level of customization, has been exhilarating. We can’t wait to see our LEGO and Ford Mustang fans’ own creations when they get their hands on this new set. ”
Some of the custom options include a supercharger, rear ducktail spoiler, beefy exhaust pipes, front chin spoiler and a nitrous oxide tank. Nice.
Rolling on 5-spoke rims wrapped in those burly road-gripping tires, expect a complete project here including working steering, dark-blue bodywork, white racing stripes, bonnet scoop, printed Mustang grille badge, and GT emblems.
Pop the trunk open to expose a detailed big block 390 V8 engine, complete with battery, hoses and air filter. For a meaner stance, lift the rear axle.
Inside, the classic seats, radio, working steering and a mid-console gearshift are all on display with a removable roof panel.
When finished, this Fastback will sit 3” (10cm) high, measuring 13” (34cm) long and 5” (14cm) wide. And no question, will absolutely fit in on any office desk or man cave shelf. Oh, or in your kid’s bedroom.
