LEGO Speed Champions Nissan GT-R Nismo (76896) Arriving in 2020

LEGO has just made a press release in Yokohama, Japan announcing the arrival of another LEGO Speed Champions set for 2020. The LEGO Speed Champions Nissan GT-R Nismo (76896) is the fifth set (and perhaps the last to be offered in 2020) announced for next year’s selection of brick speedsters. The venue for this official announcement couldn’t be more fitting since LEGO is now paying tribute to one of the most iconic Japanese supercars as the latter celebrates the 50th year of the Nissan GT-R powerhouse.

The LEGO Speed Champions Nissan GT-R Nismo (76896) clocks in at 298 pieces and is expected to retail for $19.99 USD once it is offered to the public from December 26 onwards. It joins other previously announced Speed Champions sets for 2020 which includes:

The LEGO Group brings iconic Nissan GT-R NISMO to life in bricks

LEGO® Speed Champions Nissan GT-R NISMO pays tribute to the legendary Japanese supercar. The set will be available in the first half of 2020.

Yokohama, Japan, November 25: Since the introduction of the LEGO® wheel in 1962, cars have played a central role in thousands of LEGO sets and in the hearts, minds and play of millions of children across the world. Today, the LEGO Group and Nissan have revealed a model that pays tribute to one of the most iconic Japanese supercars, the Nissan GT-R NISMO. This is the first-ever partnership between LEGO and a Japanese automaker.

The LEGO model was revealed by LEGO Group CEO Niels B. Christiansen and Asako Hoshino, executive vice president at Nissan, at the automaker’s global headquarters in Yokohama today.

Niels B. Christiansen said: “In addition to offering a wonderful and fun building and play experience, we hope the model will also inspire children to learn more about engineering and how to create things in real life. Just as engineers across decades have improved the design and performance of this car, children build, unbuild and rebuild during play – stimulating and developing crucial skills, such as creativity, resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking. Inspiring them to become the builders of tomorrow is our mission.”

Nissan GT-R Nismo (76896)

Asako Hoshino said: “The Nissan GT-R and the LEGO brand are both renowned and loved by fans of all ages throughout the world, and we are honored to be the first-ever Japanese car manufacturer to partner with the LEGO Group. Many of our Nissan customers can trace their automotive passion back to when they built LEGO cars as children. With this partnership, everyone can be a `takumi’ – the specialized craftsmen that build the GT-R. And, it’s the GT-R’s 50th anniversary this year, so what better way to celebrate than to share the GT-R with Nissan and LEGO fans around the world!”

Iconic taillights recreated in bricks

The LEGO Speed Champions Nissan GT-R NISMO will be available globally in January 2020. It’s one of the first in the 2020 Speed Champions themed sets, which will be 25% bigger than in previous years. The GT-R NISMO model, made from 298 LEGO elements, captures the authentic and intricate details of the life-size race car in a relatively small LEGO model. This posed an interesting challenge for LEGO design lead Chris Stamp.

“In LEGO Speed Champions, we always aim to include new types of racing vehicles. And when we focused on drifting and racing, the record-breaking Nissan GT-R, and especially the new GT-R NISMO, was at the top of our wish list. Authenticity is always our main concern, and we spent a lot of time exploring different building techniques to correctly recreate the taillights, as they are one of the most recognizable details on the car. I am really happy with the end result!”

Hiroshi Tamura, Nissan’s chief product specialist for the GT-R – known informally as “Mr. GT-R” – gave the scaled-down LEGO version his stamp of approval: “The GT-R has been part of my life since I was 10 years old. Working with the LEGO Group was like awakening my inner 10-year-old self to rediscover what makes the GT-R so special to me. It’s amazing how much the LEGO Group’s attention to detail reminds me of our own craftsmen.”

Appearing alongside the LEGO Speed Champions Nissan GT-R NISMO at today’s event was the 2020 GT-R NISMO. Available now, the most extreme, most capable GT-R in history features carbon-fiber front and rear bumpers, roof, trunk and rear spoiler; carbon-fiber front fenders with special scalloped vents; new lightweight wheels and new tires; tuned suspension and transmission; Brembo carbon brakes; and new turbochargers.

Another 2020 LEGO Speed Champions Set Revealed

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.

2020 LEGO Speed Champions

“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.

New LEGO Speed Champions Set for 2020 Revealed

A new LEGO Speed Champions set that will debut in the first quarter of 2020 has just been revealed. The LEGO Speed Champions Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 Car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY (76898) is a dual-pack set that features two of Jaguar’s latest innovation in electric vehicle technology in partnership with the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team. The LEGO Speed Champions reveal also coincide with the latter’s announcement of their new Formula E I-TYPE 4 race car, while the Jaguar I-PACE underscores the company’s latest all-electric SUV to be marketed to the public in direct competition with Tesla’s Model X.

According to a report from The Brothers Brick, this latest new LEGO Speed Champions set will feature a first-ever 8-stud wide design for the series which significantly improves the design and model accuracy of the theme. All Speed Champions sets as of to date follow a 6-stud wide design which makes them look narrower as compared to their real-life counterparts. This new design also allows for the creation of a new LEGO element – such as a huge 6×12 modified plate – to accommodate the adjustment in size. This also allows two minifigures (in the case of the I-PACE brick model) to be seated in front for a more realistic brick rendition. Other new elements also include 3×2 wedge plates and 6-stud wide windscreen.

New LEGO Speed Champions Set

Looking at the set’s box art, I can say that the new 8-stud design is a significant improvement in the LEGO Speed Champions series. It introduces a new length-to-width ratio that comes closer to how these LEGO versions accurately represent their real-life vehicle counterparts. I just hope that this will be the same for all upcoming Speed Champions sets in 2020.

There are no details yet as of the moment regarding this new LEGO Speed Champions set’s piece count and retail price, but we can expect more info and additional images to be revealed in the coming weeks. The LEGO Speed Champions Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 Car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY (76898) is slated to be released on January 1, 2020. Be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for the rest of the currently available LEGO Speed Champions sets.

Coming Soon: A New LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Set for 2019

LEGO has already revealed a handful of 2019 LEGO Speed Champion sets to watch out for in January, and it looks like the reveals doesn’t end there. A couple of days ago, the official Facebook page of McLaren Automotive shared a teaser on what’s building at LEGO HQ, particularly with regards to its speedster line of brick-built supercars. McLaren fans were quick to point out that the rear end of this next LEGO Speed Champions set belongs to one of the company’s most recent creation: the McLaren Senna. Just to be sure, this new 2019 LEGO Speed Champions set is not yet confirmed, though it should be noted that LEGO has already announced a LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Senna (75892) as part of its 2019 repertoire scheduled for release in January 1st.

This new set, if ever it turned out to be another Senna, sports a camouflaged finish on top of predominantly white pieces. The only turnoff from this set, like in any other LEGO Speed Champion set, is the vast amount of stickers that you need to apply in order to create that camouflaged effect. I can already feel my stubby, little  fingers complaining.

Now just to be clear, these are all speculations at the moment until such time that LEGO and McLaren do a full reveal.  Perhaps we’ll hear more about this collaboration soon enough just in time for the 2019 Nuremberg Toy Fairin Germany. For now, let’s just wait and see how things will turn out.
