RacerRabbit replied to Digger of Bricks's topic in LEGO TownNOTE: This is a wish list. Not confirmed at all. Hi there, i've been doing some thinking about what sets would be released in the Speed Champions range for the next two years if I were in charge of it. I wanted to include a few new manufacturers and have some cars from manufacturers that are already asscociated with the theme. I won't be able to include photos of the cars due to the memory limit so, you'll have to look them up if you want to know what they look like. Please let me know what you think. Thank you. 2020 Newcomers: BMW & Lamborghini Stand-Alone Cars Lamborghini Aventador SVJ The range has almost all of the major supercar manufacturers. But not Lamborghini. Why? They're owned by VW like Audi and Bugatti are, so Lambo should be within easy reach. So, in this wave, Lambo is represented in the stand-alone £12.99 car collection by the latest variation of the company's flagship: The Aventador SVJ. My choice of colour scheme would be a yellow one with black wheels. The accessory would be an overhanging set of traffic lights. BMW iFE. 18 Another easy manufacturer to drag into the SC range would be Mini's current owners: BMW. Not only that but their entry in the current season of Formula E. It would really be interesting to see how Lego would tackle the complex design of current Formula E cars such as the wings and the halo around the cockpit. The trackside accessory would be a piece of wall with a jail door piece attached to the top as a fence. Ferrari 330 P4 Yes, I know, Ferrari have shown up to the party a lot already but when it comes to classics, the Stable Of The Prancing Horse still has some unplumbed depths. Plus, the 330 P4 would be a way to get the new mudguard pieces in red cheaper and easier. It wouldn't have a trackside accessory but instead, similar to the F40, this set would include pieces to turn it from the hard top Berlinetta version to the open top spider version. BMW M4 GTS We round up the 2020 stand alone car range with another Beemer. This time, the hardcore M4 GTS. It would be coloured dark grey and include orange wheels with silver wheel covers. The McLaren Senna was dark grey with orange wheels so the M4 GTS should already be easier to make. The trackside accessory would be a tool cart. Playsets 2019 BMW M8 GTE & 1979 BMW M1 Procar This would be the small £34.99 price range playset for 2020 and features two BMW race cars both old and new. Both would share similar paint schemes (white, red and blue) and would also include a pit wall with a control centre. Minifigures included would of course be two drivers and two BMW pit crew members. One male, one female. Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO & Diablo GT2 Challenge Finally, we top off the 2020 range with a set that fits into the £69.99 range. It would include the latest iteration of Lambo's Huracan GT3 race car in lime green and the 1998 GT2 spec Diablo in orange. And the buildings included would be a start/finish line light setup, a podium building similar to that from the 2015 Porsche 911 GT set, a tool cart, a fuel cart and a jumbotron with interchangeable decorated tiles, each with an image of one of the two cars racing around the track with some TV graphics. Minifigs would include 2 drivers, 3 pit crew members, a cameraman and a reporter with a microphone. 2021 Newcomers: Toyota and Aston Martin Stand-Alone Cars Mercedes Benz AMG ONE Mercedes are readying their new F1 engined hypercar, the AMG ONE. Now, come on. How could this not be in the Speed Champions range? Mercedes have been a partner of the theme already and I feel if they were to return, it should be with this. It would be light bluish grey with silver wheels. The trackside accessory would be a set of cones like you got with the McLaren P1 and Bugatti Chiron sets. Aston Martin Valkyrie The AMG ONE's main rival should also make an appearance here too. In a similar way the 2015 range kicked off with the "Hybrid Hypercar Holy Trinity". It'd be interesting to see how TLG would pull off it's simple yet complex shape. The colour would either be dark grey, dark blue or black with black wheels. The trackside accessory would be a digital readout similar to the accessory we got with the 1968 Mustang set but with a speed readout. Mini John Cooper Works GP Last year, at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed, I first laid eyes on the latest Mini JCW GP in concept form and thought it was one of the best looking hot hatches I had ever seen, especially amongst the vintage racing paraphernalia that was displayed with it. It would also be a way that Lego could release the SC wheels in red. The accessory included would be a pair of 1x6 rumble strips. Toyota Supra Many fans have begged for a Japanese manufacturer to appear in the SC range and after some consideration, the one most likely to show up would be Toyota which is being represented in the £12.99 range by none other than the new Supra. Possible colours would either be red, yellow or white. Or if the Supra were to take part in GTE racing, than that version would be the one getting picked. The accessory would depend on which one is chosen. If it's the road one, then a traffic light. If it's the race version, a small podium with a gold cup. Playsets 2020 Toyota GR Super Sport "LM Hypercar" & 1999 Toyota GT-ONE This is where things get good. In case you don't know, in 2020, the WEC is to replace LMP1 with a new class of "Hypercars" which will be more cost efficient and more based around road cars. Plus, Toyota recently announced that they would be making a new supercar after their 2018 Le Mans victory. I have no doubt in my mind that the GR Super Sport will be Toyota's representitive in this new class and as a result, this set will include the racing version of that. As for the other car, anyone who is familiar with the Gran Turismo games will know this car. A fine example of the old GT1 class that used to rule Le Mans in the 90's. It would be cool to include it in this set. The accessory would be a medium sized trophy podium. Minifigures would include 2 drivers and a photographer. Aston Martin Vantage GTE Fuel Stop The mid-size playset in this range would include a lime green GTE spec Vantage but without a second car, it leaves more room for a larger structure. In this case a pit stop similar to the one from set 75883 but a bit shorter in length and include a fuel tank on the outside of the pit entrance, a tool cart, and a small control centre on the inside of the garage. Minifigures included would be a driver and 4 pit crew members. 1954 Mercedes Race Transporter, 1954 W196 and 2020 Mercedes Petronas F1 Car And we top it all off with a very interesting addition. The very unique blue "Renntransporter" would be an 8 wide build with the SC wheels coming out in blue for the first time. The set would also include the number #12 W196 F1 car driven by Jaun Manuel Fangio and of course, a modern Mercedes F1 from 2020. Accessories would include a finish line with some rumble strips and a small marshal's post. Because this set would include 2 cars and a medium sized truck, the rest of the set would be quite minimalistic. Minifigures would include drivers for the 2 F1 cars and the truck, a marshal with flags and a spectating enthusiast. So, that's it. That's what I would have lined up for the Speed Champions range if I were put in charge of it. Please let me know what you think of my ideas below. Thanks for reading!
