New LEGO Creator Expert vehicle rumoured for 2022

Bet you didn’t see this one coming: a new LEGO for Adults (formerly Creator Expert) vehicle is apparently on the way in 2022.

Price comparison site has listed set number 10298 as a Creator Expert vehicle, with a recommended retail price of €99.99. That puts it roughly in the middle of the LEGO for Adults vehicle spectrum: more expensive than 10271 Fiat 500 and 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy (at €79.99 and €89.99 respectively), but cheaper than 10258 London Bus and 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van.

In fact, save for 2011’s 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, €99.99 is actually a brand new price point for the Creator Expert vehicle subtheme. But with no other info to go on at the moment, the set that fills it could really be anything.

That said, Speed Champions could give us a clue, at least based on this year’s 10295 Porsche 911 – which followed 2019’s all-white 75895 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0, a standalone re-colour of the lime green version included in 2018’s 75888 Porsche 911 RSE and 911 Turbo 3.0.

Speed Champions design lead Chris Stamp told Brick Fanatics earlier this year that the LEGO Group opened conversations with Porsche over the Creator Expert 911 while getting approval for its Speed Champions set, which means similar conversations could easily have taken place around 2020 or 2021’s eight-wide cars.

That means this mysterious new LEGO for Adults vehicle could potentially be anything from a Koenigsegg Jesko or Chevrolet Corvette to an Audi Sport Quattro or Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO – or it could be something else altogether.

We won’t know for sure until the LEGO Group officially confirms the existence of 10298, so treat this one lightly for now, but a new Creator Expert vehicle feels like a dead cert for 2022 either way.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
