LEGO Technic Corvette ZR-1 Doubles as a Hot Rod

We like our LEGO around these parts. Usually, when we are talking about a LEGO Technic car kit, we are talking about an insanely complex and expensive bag of parts. The $350, 3599-piece Bugatti Veyron kit is an excellent example of how extravagant LEGO car kits can be.

Good news for LEGO car fans who don’t have the budget or time for Bugattis. The LEGO Technic kit 42093 is of an American supercar, the Corvette ZR-1, and like the real deal, it’s a fraction of the cost and complexity of a Veyron. Priced at just $49.99, this 579-piece kit is much cheaper and is easier to build.

The car has lots of neat details, including a big wing out back, quad exhaust pipes, black-spoked rims, a working steering wheel, and a V8 engine with pistons that move. The finished model measures 3″ high, 4″ wide, and 11″ long.

The ZR-1 kit also comes with a set of instructions that allow you to build a classic Hot Rod with the same parts. Best of all, it’s available right now from the LEGO Shop.
