Oh man they’ve nailed the back, it’s BONKERS.

I assume those are CLAAS hubs behind the discs.

I'm still curious about the spoiler function. It could be the same as the Porsche but it can also be integrated with the brakes. Seeing how much emphasis they are putting on brakes, it could be a possibility.

Brakes are fake, they do not work,

Definitely not orange

Medium Dark Flesh or something like that.

No thanks, not yet another additional colour for Technic. Looking at the front images it seem to be Tan.

Ok summarized, there are obviously no working brakes, no brake lights and no paddle shifters. I wonder if there is a unique function and what it could be.

Most of parts are System, not technic

Yeah, like beams & panels, which are seat mostly made of. I really hope it is Tan.

So it looks like this set won't get the "premium packaging" like the 42056? The cardboard seems to be very thin, on the one hand, it loses a bit of its "premium" feel, on the other hand, could LEGO prevent the scenario we had with the Porsche, two years ago.

The rear wing can be lowered/raised (if not, it would have been visible in the front view), and by the looks of it it'll rotate too (for the air-brake function). It of course remains to be seen how 'automated' this will be.

[EDIT] The high-res pic I just saw shows two blue  3L and two black 2L pins, i.e. all friction pins, which would facilitate tilting of the wing. That would make it 'pose-able', not 'movable'. Oh well. And besides, it's not as if I have ever gotten anything right from looking at leaks/prelims :)

There will be either a knob for the spoiler or a linkage to a brake pedal or sth. Cant imagine it's manual, like grabbing the spoiler and pull it up from the rear. Since it's a premium model I would be inclined towards the latter. That could also be the wow function for this set.

The static part, yes. The rotating half is new and integrated with the disc brake. And I hope it will have less slack.

That would be interesting to see on @Jim's review :wink: I know that there will be excellent photos showing the whole solution

Judging from the hole in the middle, new discs are compatible with old rims so we'll see them in other sets for sure.

I am the last person to get excited about cars, but this thing is seriously cool. I was a bit underwhelmed with the front, but the back rocks! Great detailing and shape. :thumbup:

To not to increase the offset, it should be indeed a new hub with integrated disc brake imitation.

I think so too. If you use them for existing rims (using 3 2L pins), the offset will increase by at least half a stud, depending on the exact geometry of the new hubs.

Oh man... I'm not still dreaming, am I?! That rear looks awesome!!! Not entirely sold on the front yet, but it appears to be more aggressive than the real thing.

2 new flex axles, 7L dark blue!! and 19L (?) in medium blue. (PLEASE, Lego, PLEASE!!!!)

Are those stud-shooters holding the rear lightbar to the back of the car?

Looks spectacular!  7l flexaxle is new in dark blue. But on the rear I see the same as in the front: no connectors in bodywork color, just beams and panels. Connectors in black are even visible in between the dark blue here... I really hoped for at least a few recolored connectors...
