Here come some epic sets of plastic bricks.
LEGO has certainly turned things up a notch in recent years, unleashing a lineup of epic Technic sets paying homage to some of the most iconic vehicles on the planet, from planes, trains and automobiles, to motorcycles, too. And putting them together isn’t just a matter of clicking bricks together, either. Each Technic set features functioning gearboxes, wheels, and axles that you assemble yourself. The bigger the set, the more challenging it is, but they’re all hands-on experiences that’ll have you marveling at the intricate mechanical details—and your own nascent engineering skill.
Let’s take a look at a few.
Peugeot 9X8 24H Le Mans Hybrid Hypercar
Unleash your inner endurance racer and bring to life the intricate V6 piston engine and hybrid system, complete with front steering, suspension, and opening doors. And when the sun goes down, the lights come up on the Technic 9X8—just like the wingless wonder itself.
Porsche 911 RSR
Enter the world of GT endurance racing with the Porsche 911 RSR. Open those doors like a seasoned safe cracker and discover a radar screen, working steering, fire extinguisher system, and even a track map of the fabled Laguna Seca.
Ferrari 488 GTE AF Corse #51
From the front of the pack to the top of your desk, this 488 GTE features a full suspension, opening doors, and a V8 engine with moving pistons. It even comes with exclusive content, including details about the car and the AF Corse 51 team.
Ducati Panigale V4 R
Featuring a first-for-LEGO-motorcycles 2-speed gearbox, the Technic Panigale comes with full suspension, kickstand, exhaust pipe, windshield, dash, and even a Ducati racing stand.
Ferrari Daytona SP3
One of the most expensive LEGO sets not only on this list but of all builds, ever. Designed in collaboration with Ferrari, it features everything from a V12 engine to an 8-speed paddle-shift transmission.
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37
Sublime in lime, this Sián comes with the requisite V12, full suspension, 8-speed sequential transmission and—naturally—billionaire doors. Most unexpected feature: a LEGO-sized duffle bag in the trunk.
BMW M 1000 RR
Featuring a proper chain connecting its four-cylinder engine to its rear wheel—just like the real thing—this is the first Technic motorcycle to come in 1:5 scale. Best part: it includes a LEGO pedestal for showing off.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
Wranglers always look good in yellow—which is the only color this kit comes in, so good thing. All the Wrangler features are there like a seven-slot grille and round headlights, plus a beefy articulated suspension.
In this case, it’s the rally raid muscle car version from 2022’s The Batman, to which we have no objection. Comes with a fire-spinning (yes, spinning) V8 engine and light-up underglow.
Hailing once more from The Batman—something to which we once more have no objection—this bike would be notable just for its oddball H4 engine. Pair it with the Batmobile for the brooding-est Technic collection in town.
Bugatti Bolide Agile
Quite possibly the closest any of us will get to seeing the real thing, much less owning one. Yellow and black like the wasp that wouldn’t leave you alone during your 15-minute lunch break, it features a W16 engine with moving cylinders.
The first of the V6 supercars, the Ford GT is long and low and has the best flying buttresses this side of Strasbourg Cathedral. LEGO has you covered with this kit, featuring a V6 engine with moving pistons, independent suspension on all wheels, and front-axle steering.
McLaren Formula 1 Race Car
LEGO designers worked closely with McLaren Racing on this one, developing their version of the car at the same time for the 2022 race season. Even comes with a coffee-table-style instruction manual explaining the collaboration.
Now, here's the cherry on top: a lot of these sets can betaken to the next level with CONTROL+, a free app that adds elements like movement and sound to your motorized Technic creations. It's engineering meets digital magic, and it’s time to get building.
