For those of you who can’t afford a real Nissan GTR Nismo, fear not as LEGO has just announced that they are adding the GTR Nismo to their LEGO speed champions collection which already includes the LEGO Formula E Panasonic Jaguar Racing GEN2 Car & Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY as well as the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X. The model was unveiled today at an event in Yokohama.
The model itself looks very good especially the way they have replicated the tail light of the GTR Nismo and the little red seats, gear stick and steering wheel too add a nice touch. Of course it does not have the carbon fiber or the tuned suspension of the original one but you can still have a lot of fun building it and dismantling it and driving it with your hands.
The 2020 E speed champion set will be 25% bigger then that of the previous years so you can expect the the GTR Nismo to be bigger as well. According to LEGO, the Nismo took around 12 months to make and comes with 298 pieces. It is expected to be available globally in January 2020.
