O, Corvette, Corvette, Corvette. Who doesn't love a Corvette, especially a very orange one made from plastic but won't kill you when it crashes?
Welcome to the LEGO Technic 42093 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.
With available horsepower of 755, top speed of 212 mph and the capability of doing 0 to 60 mph in 2.85 seconds, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a real beast. I bet it's got to be a proper beast.
However, the cost of a real 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 starts at $121,000. Now with just 0.04 per cent of that, you can have your own Corvette ZR1. One day, if you're sick with it, you may even build it into something else. I say it's better than the real car...
To be honest, I don't think the design of the front in the LEGO model really does the real car justice. Perhaps it is due to the scale limit, so the design merely catches the shape. But anyway, to my eye the designer does give the model a pretty nice profile.
Some may argue that the LEGO model doesn't do the real car's beautiful tail design justice as well. But at the scale of this model, with the building techniques and parts used put into consideration, it's perfect enough.
Like many other LEGO Technic models, the 42093 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 comes with an "alternative build". And this time, it's a hot rod. Of course, I'm sure we may come up something even better!
The LEGO Technic 42093 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a mid-scale model containing 579 pieces, and will be released on 1 January 2019.
Price: £39.99 / $49.99 / 39,99 €
It's a great entry level build, and a great gift for Corvette lovers as well!
