You may not be able to afford to buy every supercar you’ve ever wanted to own, but there’s a good chance there’s going to be a LEGO Technic you can build that will let you geek out on the darn thing anyway. If Ford’s mid-engine supercar is one of those vehicles you’ve been pining to bring into your life since the second generation line started production over six years ago, then it’s probably a good idea to assuage the longing with the LEGO Technic 2022 Ford GT.
That’s right, the Technic line is bringing Ford’s ultimate halo car to its fleet, allowing you to add a new supercar to your ever-growing LEGO garage. Whether you’re an avid Technic collector, an American sports car enthusiast, or just a car guy who wants something to remember the Ford GT while we wait for the next generation, this set should make for a fun time building and a lot of fun time admiring once it’s done.
The LEGO Technic 2022 Ford GT is a 1:12-scale recreation of the American supercar’s final year model, reprising its aerodynamic shape and sporty styling. Nearly every exterior detail gets recreated, from its low profile and flowing lines to the sloping hood and large rear wing, so it’s like you get to build your own supercar from scratch. Well… one that you can’t drive anyway. Suffice to say, if you admire the Ford GT’s aggressive looks, you’ll probably gain an even deeper appreciate for it while putting this together.
Like many Technic cars, it comes with some functional mechanical parts, so the true car nerds can actually feel like they’re working on an actual car. These include the rear-wheel drive with differential, the independent suspension on each wheel, and the front axle steering, so you can actually see mechanical parts moving as you push the car around a table pretending to race it. Same goes for the V6 engine, which comes with moving pistons that animate as the car moves around. Other moving parts include the hood, the doors, the headlights, and the spoiler wing around the back, so there are plenty of things here to play around with after you’re done building.
The LEGO Technic 2022 Ford GT measures 15 x 7 x 3.5 inches (length x width x height), so it’s big enough to really draw attention anywhere you decide to display the finished model. It comes with 1,466 pieces, by the way, so this will take some to build out, so best prepare a couple hours a night for a week or so if you want to get the thing done in short order. Well… that or cancel all your plans for the entire weekend. Your call.
Like other Technic models, this is designed for adults, as it requires some more complicated assembly that younger LEGO fans might not quite be able to appreciate. In case it gets a little too tough, by the way, just use the LEGO Builder app to make it easier to organize the instructions and track your progress.
The LEGO Technic 2022 Ford GT goes on sale starting March 1st, priced at $119.99.
