While the specific makeup of the four sets hasn’t been confirmed by brickmerge.de, which has so far only listed product numbers and price points for next year’s Speed Champions range, their price tags can clue us in to their contents based on previous waves.
76906, 76907 and 76908 will reportedly all ring in at €19.99 apiece, which matches the cost of this year’s single-car sets, including 76900 Koenigsegg Jesko (review), 76901 Toyota GR Supra (review) and 76902 McLaren Elva (review).
76910, meanwhile, comes in slightly higher at €39.99 – the same price tag as 2021’s smallest two-pack, 76903 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R Race Car and 1968 Chevrolet Corvette (review). While we don’t yet know which manufacturers or cars the theme will tackle in 2022, it looks like it will continue to follow the same format at eight studs wide as it has in 2020 and 2021.
With that in mind, only four Speed Champions sets in 2022 would represent a 33% cut on this year’s six-strong wave, so more sets could well be in store beyond those currently listed by brickmerge. There’s a vacant product number in 76909, for instance, which leaves room for another potential two-pack to slot in.
We already know Speed Champions is continuing until at least 2023, so news of more sets isn’t exactly surprising – but given 2021’s models were pushed from their usual March release date to June, hearing about 2022’s sets this early suggests they’ll be returning to their previous spring launch window next year.
