2 new cars added to the Speed Champions lineup
Photos of sets of “champions of speed” that have not yet been officially presented by Lego are circulating on the Internet. The information was leaked through a dealer of a Danish company. We are talking about two new products that should appear in August: 76911 LEGO Speed Champions Aston Martin DB5 and 76912 LEGO Speed Champions “Fast and Furious 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.”.
76911 LEGO Speed Champions «Aston Martin DB5″
super agent fans James Bond by the image on the front side of the branded box, they will understand that the model was created according to an episode from the movie “No Time to Die”. Agent 007, along with Madeleine Swann, are driving along the street of the small town of Matera, which is located in southern Italy, in the same car, the model of which is proposed to be built by the creators of this project.
But the main thing is that for the Speed Champions line, the appearance of the 007 car model will be a premiere in itself. It just so happened that the previously famous vehicle fell out of the sight of the designers of the prefabricated toys of the themed series.
However, the set in question will definitely arouse increased interest not only among fans of “speed champions”. The last time the Lego model of the legendary car was implemented in 2018. 4 years in the “world of cubes” is a long enough period for this or that model to be in the rare category.
Special value set 76911 LEGO Speed Champions Aston Martin DB5 Adds a licensed James Bond minifigure (inspired by actor Daniel Craig) to the buildable toy. Fans of agent 007 have long wanted to see a similar miniature figure of the hero in related Lego constructors. However, they did not expect that an agent of Her Majesty’s Secret Service would appear before them with a wrench in his hand instead of the more familiar “Walter”.
Overall, the Aston Martin DB5 has a classic look with some new shapes. Of course, the toy will be able to change license plates. It’s not clear from the pictures if 007’s car is equipped with concealed machine guns, as the front end, with grille and headlights, looks like it’s a sticker. But it is possible that this is just an optical illusion.
76911 LEGO Speed Champions Aston Martin DB5 set contains 298 pieces and 1 minifigure.

The picture of the buildable car on the front of the packaging of the second set also hints at what inspired the toy’s creators. The model was developed according to the plot of the first film “Fast and the Furious”, which was released in theaters in 2001. It features the gorgeous Dominic Toretto in his charging car in a drag race against Brian O’Connor (played by Paul Walker) in a Toyota Supra.
As you can see, the model is not new. In 2020, the Danish manufacturer implemented a similar project as a technical counterpart. However, the demand for the novelty is guaranteed. For true fans, there is not enough technology, so they are interested in all kits with prefabricated cars. Moreover, the model of the famous car of the Fast and the Furious series includes the first minifigure of Dominic Toretto, “photographed” from the image of the leading actor Vin Diesel.
Kit 76912 LEGO Speed Champions “Fast and Furious 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.” Made from 345 parts and 1 minifigure.
It is reported that both considered constructors will appear in the assortment of stores on August 1, 2022. But with the cost of new products is still unclear. Initially it was assumed that the price will be 19.99 euros. But due to the announced increase in prices for Lego products, it is likely to rise to 24.99 euros.
