If you're into Lego and cars, you'll know that Lego has a range called Speed Champions. This range includes various replicas of road cars and racing cars. In recent days, the Danish company has unveiled three new products.

Aston Martin AMR23 and Vantage Safety Car

Firstly, there's the kit comprising the Aston Martin AMR23 and Vantage Safety Car. The former is a replica of the British team's F1 car. Note that this is not the current single-seater, but one from last season. The second represents the safety car of the Formula 1 World Championship. Since 2021, Aston Martin has shared this role with Mercedes.

In terms of dimensions, the Formula 1 car is 4 cm high, 19 cm long and 7 cm wide. The measurements of the Safety Car are not given, but it should be smaller, taller and retain the same width. The whole set comprises 564 parts and costs £44.99.

The second kit is also made up of two vehicles: the Mercedes-AMG G 63 and the SL 63. The former is sold in black and measures over 7 cm in height, 18 cm in length and 8 cm in width, while the cabriolet is sold in yellow, but the dimensions are not given. Just over 800 parts are required to build the two vehicles. As with the Aston Martin kit, the two Mercedes-AMGs cost £44.99.

The third and final model is an individual vehicle. It's the Lamborghini Lambo V12 Vision GT. Made up of 230 parts, it is 3 cm high, 16 cm long and 7 cm wide. This is the only 'real' Lambo V12 Gran Turismo, as it is a concept car created solely for the 'Gran Turismo' video game. Unlike the two previous kits, the Lamborghini alone has a price tag of £20.99.
