LEGO has already teased the rumoured Speed Champions Pagani Utopia

The LEGO Group is rumoured to be adding Pagani to its list of Speed Champions partners in 2023 – and the theme’s design manager has already teased working with the manufacturer.

While the current list of LEGO Speed Champions 2023 sets mostly comprises manufacturers we’ve seen cars from before – including Porsche, McLaren, Nissan and Ferrari – 76915 Pagani Utopia stands apart as the first-ever model from the Italian brand. And while none of these sets have yet been confirmed by the LEGO Group, the Utopia actually seems the most likely of the lot.

That’s because LEGO Speed Champions Design Manager Chris Stamp has already teased a potential partnership with Pagani, citing the manufacturer in a list of other brands he’s worked with – despite the fact no LEGO Pagani sets are currently on shelves.

“I have a lot of close contacts in the automotive industry that I’ve been able to build up over the years. I think to date, we’ve worked with 22 different partners,” he told Road and Track. “I’m already aware of vehicles coming out in 2025, ’26; even though right now they might just be a clay model in a factory or a design studio, we’ve built such strong connections that they’re very open with us and we’re very open with them.

“I look at all partners like that because one of the things I’ve tried to push as well is that I don’t want to pick favourites. I want to treat Ferrari the exact same way I want to treat Porsche and the exact same way I treat Pagani.”

That feels like a very big hint that a LEGO Speed Champions Pagani set is indeed in the works. Whether it’s the rumoured Utopia or something else is less certain, but we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the theme’s scope expand to encompass yet another Italian sports car manufacturer in 2023.

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.
