If the littlest Ford fans in your family are a bit too young for a driver’s license, don’t sweat it. This spring, you’ll be able to get them their very own version of an iconic Ford model!
At the 2016 North American International Auto Show, Ford and LEGO Speed Champions announced the upcoming release of some brand new sets. For the first time, the legendary Ford Mustang and F-150 Raptor will be rolling to you in LEGO form!
As Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, The Americas, says, “The LEGO Group is one of the world’s top toy companies, and is loved by children and adults around the globe. Many of us grew up playing with LEGO, so this is a dream project for all of us – including our engineers.”
Whether it’s a gift for a young Ford fan or the perfect way to show off your love for the automaker in close quarters, these sets are plenty of fun and look great. The 185-piece Mustang kit includes a race driver and time board; the larger 664-piece F-150 Raptor kit comes complete with a trailer and Model A hot rod to tow, a full garage, and Ford technicians.
Performance Sets Ford Apart
While these LEGO miniatures are sure to offer hours of fun for kids and adults alike, the real-deal is a bit more exciting if you love a thrill on the road. After all, a legend like the Mustang has a big reputation to live up to, and at up to 526 horsepower it does exactly that.
Drivers who prefer a little mud on the tires will undoubtedly love the F-150 Raptor. Set to enter the 2017 model year with an all-new design, this beast is ready to deliver on monstrous power with bigger cab options, 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox, and a twin-turbo engine that will outpace the previous 6.2L V8. Stack in a 10-speed transmission, and this truck won’t be flinching away from a challenge any time soon.
To get your hands on one of these new LEGO sets, you’ll want to set your sights on the LEGO Store or Toys R’ Us this March. For a test drive in a full-size Ford model, you’ll want to call Ziems Ford Corners at (888) 375-9581 today!
