This is of course not the first Ford Mustang of this era to appear as a LEGO Set, with a similar version appearing in green and black racing livery in last year’s Speed Champions range… albeit slightly cheaper and smaller!

A true American hero will soon be screeching into stores with the arrival of the LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang from March 1st .
Developed in partnership with Ford, the new Creator Expert: Ford Mustang model is based on a 1967 Fastback. Made up of 1,470 pieces, the nostalgic muscle car comes complete with working steering, dark-blue bodywork, white racing stripes, bonnet scoop, printed Mustang grille badge, GT emblems, and 5-spoke rims with road-gripping tyres.
It measures over 3” (10cm) high, 13” (34cm) long and 5” (14cm) wide and will give budding builders the chance to customize their all-American icon to their own specification thanks to a collection of optional add-ons – whilst still retaining its instantly recognisable symbol of the Mustang pony logo.
Customization options include a supercharger, rear ducktail spoiler, beefy exhaust pipes, front chin spoiler and a nitrous oxide tank for an authentic muscle car build experience.
Jamie Berard, Design Lead on LEGO Creator Expert, said: “The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic, symbolic cars in history – and to bring this fan favourite muscle car to life in brick form, with this level of customisation, has been exhilarating. We can’t wait to see our LEGO and Ford Mustang fans’ own creations when they get their hands on this new set. ”
Jim Owens, Mustang Marketing Manager, said: “There are few cars on the road that are as instantly recognizable as the Ford Mustang, and it’s exciting to see the iconic car’s combination of design and heritage come through in this LEGO set.”
The authentic replica model also allows owners to store items in the trunk or lift the hood to reveal a detailed big block 390 V8 engine with battery, hoses and air filter detailing.
The rear axle of the car can be lifted too for an extra-mean look, the doors can be opened and the roof panel removed to give access to the detailed interior with classic seats, radio, working steering and a mid-console gearshift.
A printed mustang grille badge, GT emblems and a selection of license plates add the final touches to this extraordinary LEGO Creator Expert model!

I love the look of this iconic vehicle: it is priced similarly to the recent additions to the range of Creator Expert vehicles. It is certainly a move away from the more British and European cars of this scale that we have seen previously. I am sure some fans of this kind of car are already thinking about how to customise it, beyond the options already supplied. what do you think? Why not leave your comments below, and until next time,
