LEGO has just re­leased its lat­est car kit — and it’s a Corvette. Not just any Corvette, though. It’s the top-of-the-line ZR1, which in full scale boasts 755 horse­power. The LEGO kit, sold un­der the Tech­nic line, fea­tures real steer­ing and even a V-8 with work­ing pis­tons, which you can see stick­ing out of the hood. The model can also be con­fig­ured as a mid-engined C-8, too! Just kid­ding, but you can build it as a clas­sic hot rod. The kit doesn’t look as clean as other models, such as the Fer­rari F40. The wild aero­dy­nam­ics of the Corvette don’t look very good here and nei­ther do most of the body pan­els. But for a Corvette en­thu­si­ast, it doesn’t get much bet­ter than this, con­sid­er­ing the price and the size. This model is about half the size of more ex­pen­sive kits in the lineup and costs $69.99, a far cry from the wild prices of some of the other LEGO Tech­nic kits.
