A new LEGO Ideas contest has finally revealed the new 40448 Vintage Car set, which depicts a classic American vehicle with two included minifigures. The new set has been confirmed since it won the vote in the LEGO Ideas vintage car contest.
The first look at the set came when an image of the box was discovered in the LEGO Group’s legal certification database. Then it was rumoured to be offered as a gift with purchase at the start of January, before finally being spotted in a LEGO store.
The set includes a blue car with two minifigures, hanging surfboards at the side to give a unique design to the model and an appearance generally true to the original contest submission.
Other prizes included in the contest are a custom LEGO trophy, 21321 International Space Station, 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay, 21323 Grand Piano, 21324 123 Sesame Street, a tote bag and whatever the next LEGO Ideas set may be.
At the moment, there is still no confirmation that this new set will be offered as part of the January deals, with any potential threshold still unconfirmed. However, if rumours are to be believed, it will come free with any purchase over €85 / $85 / £85. Also on offer in January will be the LEGO Harry Potter 30628 Monster Book of Monsters with purchases of £75 or more in the UK.
