LEGO Technic Getaway Racer Featured In New Video

Rat rod meets racecar, in block form

Oct 25, 2016

We’ve marveled at LEGO’s foray into recreating cars we know and love, from the Caterham Seven to the Beetle to the 911 GT3 RS. Just in time for Christmas 2016, the plastic block maker is ready to release the latest in its Technic line – an original four-wheeled invention that sets out to honor performance cars, racing, and drifting: the Getaway Racer.

The Technic Getaway Racer breaks cover in a new video from LEGO, one that finds the car to scale flying around a full sized, real life vacant garage. To us the toy looks a bit like the LEGO version of a rat rod, complete with flame decals and flame LEGOs shooting out of the exhaust pipes, as well as no fenders and a low-slung roof. The Getaway Racer jumps, slides, and zips like no rat rod we’ve seen before, but when your fuel is imagination – and LEGO’s pull-back motor – anything is possible.

The kit includes 170 pieces and is designed for ages 7 to 14 (though no one’s gonna blame you if your 30-year-old ass picks one up). MSRP is $19.99, though a quick Google search will turn up a couple places that offer it for considerably less. Check out the video below, and for further information head over to the Technic Getaway Racer’s page on the LEGO site.
