New parts included are 5-spoke rims, 2×8 brick with bow, 1×3 mustang logo tile and 2×4 bow with ‘GT’ Emblem.
“The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic, symbolic cars in history – and to bring this fan favourite muscle car to life in brick form, with this level of customisation, has been exhilarating,” said Jamie Berard, Design Lead on LEGO Creator Expert. “We can’t wait to see our LEGO and Ford Mustang fans’ own creations when they get their hands on this new set. ”
“There are few cars on the road that are as instantly recognizable as the Ford Mustang, and it’s exciting to see the iconic car’s combination of design and heritage come through in this LEGO set,” said Jim Owens, Mustang Marketing Manager.
