After the Jaguar Speed Champions dual pack announcement in early October 2019, we are treated with news that Lamborghini now enters the LEGO Speed Champions scene with their own dual pack featuring the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo Evo and Urus ST-X. The announcement was made during the Super Trofeo World Final in Jerez, Spain. With this press release, it is now confirmed that the 2020 Speed Champions will feature the new “more accurate” 8 studs wide design as compared to the traditional 6 studs wide car designs for previous Speed Champions sets.
Lamborghini and the LEGO Group unveiled their exclusive version of the Huracan Super Trofeo Evo and Urus ST-X, marking the Lamborghini LEGO Speed Champions debut during the Super Trofeo World Final in Jerez.
The LEGO Speed Champions model of Lamborghini’s Huracan Super Trofeo Evo boasts brilliantly realistic car details including the shark fin, airscoop and front diffuser, replicating the most significant features of the car, equipped with 5.2-liter V10 engine producing 620 hp.
The second LEGO Speed Champions model is based on the brand new Lamborghini Urus ST-X. The toy car replicates the world’s first racing super SUV that will compete on the track and off-road starting from Oct. 2020 at Misano World Final in a special World Final champions race.
“We’re extremely excited to welcome Lamborghini into the LEGO Speed Champions family, and can’t wait to see what this partnership brings,” said Chris Stamp, LEGO Speed Champions design manager specialist.
“As one of the most famous automotive brands in the world, Lamborghini has always been on our dream list. It’s just been a question of when.”
“Fortunately, 2020 marks the start of a new chapter for LEGO Speed Champions with the evolution to the more accurate ‘8 Studs Wide’ design and we felt that we could now do the popular brand justice.”
“Especially the wide body of the Huracan Super Trefeo Evo, and with the awesome Urus ST-X we also introduce our first super SUV into the theme, which fans will hopefully be just as thrilled with as we are.”
The 659-piece building set, including the two race cars, start ‘lights’ and two driver minifigures, will be available to buy from Jan. 1, 2020.
