The 1970 Dodge Charger From ‘Fast and Furious’ Is Now a Lego Model
Build this impressively detailed replica while stuck at home.
The custom 1970 Dodge Charger R/T that Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto whips through corners in the Fast and Furious franchise is the latest rad ride to get the Lego Technic treatment.
The 1:13-scale replica of the Hollywood hot rod boasts miniaturized versions of the same components seen in the movies, including a supercharged V8 with moving pistons, double wishbone suspension, wheelie bar, and nitrous oxide boost canisters in the trunk.
With 1,077 pieces, the relatively simple Dodge Charger kit is recommended for ages 10 and up, making it a great option for a father-son bonding activity during, say, a seemingly never-ending coronavirus quarantine.
The last F&F installment to feature the pony car was Furious 7. And with the release of Fast 9 postponed until April 2, 2021 due to the current global pandemic, fans will have to wait a full year to see if the Charger makes a reprisal. In the meantime, we’re sure Diesel will be driving his 1,650-horsepower Charger restomod by Speedkore Performance.
The Lego Technic “Dom’s Dodge Charger” is available to preorder online for $99.99 before shipments begin on April 27.
