Earlier this month, we saw the debut of the first 2020 LEGO Speed Champions set in the form of the LEGO Speed Champions Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 Car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY (76898). This time, it looks like it will be joined by another dual-pack set which marks the beginning of another exclusive partnership with LEGO and a world-renowned car brand.
Earlier today, Lamborghini and the LEGO Group has revealed it’s first-ever LEGO Speed Champions dual-pack set: the LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X (76899). The announcement was made in a launching event in Spain. According to a press release from SportsCar365, this new 2020 LEGO Speed Champions set features two of Lamborghini’s most recent racing vehicles: the first being the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO with its signature shark fin, airscoop, and front diffuser, while the Urus ST-X is the company’s first racing super SUV to compete on the track and off-road beginning next year.
“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 LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X (76899) will clock at 659 pieces and will include 2 driver minifigures and several start lights on the track. It will also feature an 8-wide stud design that will allow more room for two minifigs to be placed inside the driver cockpit, and a wider build profile never seen in previous set designs.
We don’t have any official images as of to date, save for these ones courtesy of Stone Wars. But we can expect this latest addition to the 2020 LEGO Speed Champions sets to arrive in LEGO stores and online starting January 1, 2020 retailing for $49.99 USD. The LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X (76899) is the second out of five sets included in this 2020 collection.
