LEGO Speed Champions sets are a great gift for kids who love cars. Each set features an authentic recreation of a real racing car. Some of the cars are modern, and others match classic vehicles that are famous in racing history.
Each Speed Champions set comes with at least one car, one minifigure, and a few accessories. Some sets come with racetrack pieces; if you collect multiple sets, you’ll be able to build a fully fledged racing set on your kitchen table. As with all LEGO sets, the parts can be swapped around. Once your kid has built the original car, they can put together a different design to show off their creativity. Minifigure parts can also be swapped to create the racer of their dreams.
These sets are intended for kids ages seven to fourteen. The cars are slightly more difficult to put together than some LEGO sculptures; every set comes with instructions to help your kid get started.
This two-car set is a great way to introduce your kids to the Speed Champions series. The set comes with everything you need to build a lime-green Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 and a classic racing-themed Porsche 911 RSR. You’ll also get to build a miniature wall pit that comes with a checkered flag, a fence for figurines to lean over, and an adjustable scoreboard to track the progress of your race.
This set comes with three racecar driver minifigures; two are boys, and one is a girl. Two of the drivers are wearing 911 RSR racing gear, and the other is wearing a lime-green outfit that matches the 911 Turbo. The drivers also come with two racing helmets, a race marshall’s hat, and a wrench accessory for car maintenance.
This set is incredibly interactive. The minifigs can hold the checkered flag, and any of the figurines can be placed inside the cars. Your kids will have a blast as they conduct tabletop races and count both the laps and the score.
This Speed Champions kit only comes with one car, but it’s a car that your kid will definitely want to add to their collection. LEGO’s version of the Ferrari F40 Competizione is sleek, red, and speedy. The tires are rubber, and your kid will be able to choose from multiple different hubcap styles.
What makes this particular set unique is that you can transform the F40 by changing out the spoilers and hood; at any moment, your kid could either be driving a Competizione or a traditional F40 road car. This rebuild only takes a few moments, so your kid might even swap the car around in the middle of their LEGO races.
