Ford has teamed up with Lego for the arrival of the LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang in stores around the Middle East.
The new Creator Expert: Ford Mustang which is the outcome of the partnership between Ford and the LEGO Group is based by the 1967 Fastback. It comprises 1,470 pieces and the set replicates the glorious Mustang complete with a working steering, dark-blue bodywork, white racing stripes, bonnet scoop, printed Mustang grille badge, GT emblems, and five-spoke rims with road-gripping tires.
The new set which measures over 10 centimeters in height, 34 centimeters in length and 14 centimeters in width will give budding builders the chance to customize their Mustang to their own specification as it comes with a number of optional add-ons. At the same time, it retains the instantly recognizable symbol of the Mustang pony logo.
The customization options that are available include a supercharger, rear ducktail spoiler, beefy exhaust pipes, front chin spoiler and a nitrous oxide tank for an authentic muscle car build experience.
Commenting on the set, Jamie Rae, marketing director for Ford Middle East said that the Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic muscle cars of the past 60 years, and the set replicates the model’s combination of design and heritage making it an exciting acquisition for fans of both Ford and LEGO.
Buyers of the set also have the option of storing items in the trunk or of lifting the hood to reveal a detailed big block 390 cubic inch (6.4-litre) V8 engine that houses a battery, hoses and air filter detailing.
It is possible to lift the rear axle of the car for an extra-mean look, the doors can be opened and the roof panel can also be removed for easy access to the detailed interior. The interiors are a faithful replica of the original car 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.
Jamie Berard, Design Lead on LEGO Creator Expert said that with the Ford Mustang being one of the most iconic, symbolic cars in history and a popular fan favorite muscle car, he said it was an exhilarating experience to bring it to life in brick form, with this level of customization.
He concluded, “We can’t wait to see our LEGO and Ford Mustang fans’ own creations when they get their hands on this new set.”
