Ford Mustang Lego hero

The Lego Ford Mustang is launching in SA, and here’s what you need to know about the pint-sized replica!

To celebrate International Lego Day (which is 28 January, for those who may not know), Ford and the Lego Group have teamed-up to release a brand-new 1967 Fastback set, which is available to purchase in South Africa.

Made up of 1,470 pieces, the nostalgic muscle car comes complete with working steering, dark-blue bodywork, white racing stripes, bonnet scoop, printed Mustang grille badge, GT emblems, and five-spoke rims with road-gripping tyres. Measuring over 10 centimetres high, 34 centimetres long and 14 centimetres wide, the set gives budding builders the chance to customise their all-American icon to their own specification thanks to a collection of optional add-ons – while retaining its instantly recognisable symbol of the Mustang pony logo.

Customisation options include a supercharger, rear ducktail spoiler, beefy exhaust pipes, front chin spoiler and a nitrous oxide tank for an authentic muscle car build experience. “The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic muscle cars of the past six decades, and to have its combination of design and heritage replicated by this set is exciting for fans of both Ford and Lego,” says Doreen Mashinini, General Manager Marketing at Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA).

The authentic replica model also allows owners to store items in the trunk or lift the hood to reveal a detailed big block 6.4-litre V8 engine with battery, hoses and air filter detailing. The rear axle of the car can be lifted for an extra-mean look, the doors can be opened and the roof panel removed to give access to the detailed interior 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.

While the 1967 Fastback is a great choice for LEGO fans the latest Ford Mustang offerings are sure to get your heart racing. In South Africa the Ford Mustang is available in fastback and convertible body styles, with a choice of a 331kW 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine, or the 213kW 2.3-litre EcoBoost petrol engine – all using Ford’s advanced 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Ford Mustang Fastback Lego set is priced at R2,589 and is available on Takealot.
