2019 saw LEGO Speed Champions at the heart of the latest expansion in Forza Horizon (the open-world racing game), plus LEGO introduced Dodge and Mini to the theme with LEGO 75894 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally and 2018 MINI John Cooper Works Buggy and LEGO 75893 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 1970 Dodge Charger R/T.

More iconic vehicles were released in 2020, such as LEGO 76899 Lamborghini Urus ST-X & Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO, and LEGO 76895 Ferrari F8 Tributo. There was quite a noticeable change in the construction, this being that the vehicles were now two studs wider than before, so the change in scale led naturally to a change in price.

In terms of tangible cars, LEGO Speed Champions released LEGO 76917 2 Fast 2 Furious Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) and LEGO 76915 Pagani Utopia, to name two of the six.

That brings us up to the present day, 2024. Nine sets have been released so far, but some are double packs, so that actually provides us with 14 vehicles in total. Included in these nine are:

The grand total of LEGO Speed Champion sets released from the start is 64 (64 sets in nine years is good going!). LEGO Speed Champions is an awesome theme and adults and children alike can enjoy the build process and the aesthetics of them. We hope that LEGO keeps producing them at such a healthy rate.
