Lamborghini unveils the new 8-stud wide LEGO Speed Champions Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and Urus ST-X [News]

Earlier this month Jaguar shared the new LEGO Speed Champions in its new 8-stud wide design.

The two new models were revealed at the Super Trofeo World Final on stage in Jerez.

Below is a closer look at both vehicles at the unveiling during the event.

Here’s the official press release from Lamborghini:

Lamborghini first LEGO® Speed Champions model cars unveiled at the Super Trofeo World Final

Sant’Agata Bolognese/Jerez de la Frontera, 29 October 2019 – Lamborghini and the LEGO group unveiled their exclusive version of the Huracán Super Trofeo EVO and Urus ST-X, marking the Lamborghini LEGO® Speed Champions debut during the Super Trofeo World Finals in Jerez.
The Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO race car competes in the fastest one-make championship in the world. The LEGO Speed Champions model boasts brilliantly realistic car details including the shark fin, airscoop and front diffuser, replicating the most significant features of the car, equipped with 5.2cc V10 engine with 620hp.

The second LEGO Speed Champions model is based on the brand new Lamborghini Urus ST-X. The toy car replicates the world’s first racing Super SUV that will compete on the track and off-road starting from October 2020 at Misano World Final in a special World Final champions race.

“We’re extremely excited to welcome Lamborghini into the LEGO Speed Champions family, and can’t wait to see what this partnership brings. As one of the most famous automotive brands in the world, Lamborghini has always been on our dream list. It’s just been a question of when”, says Chris Stamp, LEGO Speed Champions design manager specialist.

“Fortunately, 2020 marks the start of a new chapter for LEGO Speed Champions with the evolution to the more accurate ‘8 Studs Wide’ design and we felt that we could now do the popular brand justice. Especially the wide body of the Huracán Super Trefeo EVO. And with the awesome Urus ST-X we also introduce our first Super SUV into the theme, which fans will hopefully be just as thrilled with as we are.”

The 659-piece building set, including the two racecars, start ’lights’ and 2 driver minifigures will be available for purchase from 1st January 2020. Are you ready to puts kids behind the new mini racing wheel?

    i hope you guys were able to get an advance look at these, like you were with the jaguars. the urus looks really similar to the i-pace, but that just may be angles. or maybe all SUVs just kinda have the same shape. i’m looking forward to some more detailed images and the rest of the speed champions line in general. the move to 8 studs seems to be polarizing, but i’m all for it.

    I am unreasonably excited for an 8-stud-wide standard, but not thrilled with the amount of stickers on the EVO. They don’t seem to photograph well, either — they look super obvious and kinda cheap. But I’ll wait and see how they appear in a no-doubt-upcoming closer “closer look”.

    Hey, LEGO, when can we get some wider road baseplates? ;)

    to be fair, almost all of the race cars are loaded with stickers. these aren’t official shots, so i wouldn’t expect them to look polished (though, this may be a more realistic depiction…). i wasn’t thrilled with the massive stickers along the back, but looking at the actual race car, they were left with little choice.

    I wish the speed champion series would come with two sticker sheets so one might choose race car or a more street look. I have passed on several in the series because they had to many stickers with essential details and race emblems on the same sticker
