Today, the LEGO Group announced its latest vintage car set, the iconic #10304 LEGO Chevrolet Camaro Z28. The new set is a detailed recreation of one of the slickest muscle cars of all time, beloved by automotive enthusiasts from when it launched in the late 60s through to today.
The new LEGO set is brilliantly detailed with functional elements including a working steering wheel, an intensely detailed engine, and opening and closing doors. Allowing builders to customize the car to their desired design, the vehicle comes in gloss black with the iconic racing stripes available in red, white, or gray. You can also choose to build it as a hard top or a convertible, plus choose classic or hideaway headlights to complete the look. The vehicle measures over 3.5 in. (10 cm) high, 14 in. (36 cm) long, and 5.5 in. (14 cm) wide, and comes with 1,458 pieces.
Chevrolet Camaro Product Marketing Manager Harlan Charles said, “The 1969 Camaro Z28 has been turning heads on and off the roads for decades, which is why we are so proud to see it come to life in a brand-new way via LEGO bricks. Anyone who loves the iconic design of the 1969 Camaro Z28 now has the thrill of building this set and displaying it in their home.”
LEGO Designer Sven Franic said, “With its classic lines and sleek design, the 1969 Camaro Z28 is unrivalled in its elegance – which is why it was such a wonderful inspiration for this LEGO design. By building this set, you can envision yourself at the wheel, and all but feel the rumble of the engine taking you down an open road.”
