Released in 2019, 42096 Porsche 911 RSR is a detailed recreation of a real-life endurance racing vehicle. It typically retails for £169.99, but Zavvi are selling it for just £109.99 – allowing you to save a cool £60. That’s a massive 35% off the RRP.
The real-life Porsche 911 RSR was unveiled in 2017, and preceded by several other models of Porsche racing vehicle. Weighing around 1,250kg, this car has participated in prestigious racing events like Le Mans and the IMSA Sports Car Championship. Now you can bring a slice of racing history into your home, at a (likely) more affordable price than the real thing.
The LEGO model of the car comes with a number of real-life technical features for a stimulating building experience. These include a working differential, suspension and an engine with working pistons – a familiar feature of LEGO Technic sets, but always a welcome one.
The set’s cockpit can also be accessed once the car is assembled. This offers a range of real-life features such as working steering, a fire extinguisher and a track map. Real Porsche branding and an accurate, red, white and black colour scheme make this a faithful tribute to the racing car.
With a nice mix of features in a substantial model (the set measures 50cm long once assembled) this is a great mid-level set for LEGO Technic fans. And at this price, you don’t need any excuses to add it to your LEGO Technic fleet – or start a new one.
Picking this set up from Zavvi will cost you £1.99 in delivery costs. However, you can get this set delivered to the US for just £3.99.
