Dodge and Lego Launch Top Fuel Dragster and ’70 Challenger

The brick dragway is ready for action

  • Kit includes both cars, available June 1

  • Dodge and Lego’s second high-performance offering


Dodge’s latest pair of drag racers are the least powerful they’ve ever built. And probably the most fun. They’re new from Dodge SRT and Lego and they’re a Plum Crazy Challenger and the first-ever Lego Top Fuel Dragster in the Lego Speed Champion series.

The head of the Dodge brand, Tim Kuniskis, knows that muscle car is more than just an actual vehicle. “Owning, or aspiring to own, a Dodge muscle car is as much about the lifestyle of joining the Brotherhood of Muscle as it is about the vehicle purchase,” he said, adding that “our brand enthusiasts are passionate about all things Dodge, including the latest cool collectables.”

So Dodge is back with Lego with this cool 627-piece kit that allows the young and young at heart to build an iconic 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A in Plum Crazy and a 13.5-inch long “incredibly detailed” Top Fuel Dragster, both in Lego’s 8W scale. The Top Fuel Dragster gets a proper-looking supercharger and the Challenger is wearing a massive hood scoop.

The kit’s Challenger is the first purple Speed Champions vehicle, Dodge says, and we believe them. The kit also comes with two drivers, one female-presenting with a Dodge-branded racing suit, the other male-presenting and wearing Dodge-branded casual clothing. Both come with hair and racing helmet bricks.

The kit is a follow-up for Dodge and Lego Speed Champions of a kit launched in 2019 that featured the 2018 Challenger SRT Demon and a 1970 Charger R/T.

Dodge and Lego’s latest will be available to order from Lego on June 1st, priced from US $49.99 and $69.99 in Canada.
