This has been a bumper year for the Lego car kit, with the Danish toy master who releases the extremely detailed, extremely complicated Bugatti Chiron we have featured on this site, as well as the gadget-loaded Aston Martin DB5 as shown in Gullfinger. The company is ready for an equally big bang in 201
Like Chiron, ZR1 is part of the Technic collection, but unlike the 3,599 piece behemoth, this is a relative lightweight, weighing in at 579 pieces – or to put it another way, there are fewer pieces than what the real car has in actual horsepower.
Nevertheless, this is a rather intricate set that comes with all the stairs to the 1: 1 car. These include the typical Corvette long hood, large black wheels wrapped in low profile tires, massive backswings and quad central exhaust tips. There is even work control and a V8 with pistons moving along with the car, even though there is no transmission like with Chiron.
As a refreshment, the real Corvette ZR1 comes with a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 running out 755 hp and a barely credible 969 Nm torque paired to either a seven-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic. One starts at US $ 119,995 (RM496,400), while the Lego version is yours for just a penny below US $ 50 (RM210).
