Not every movie can turn into a mega-successful series that produces nine original movies after the original. Such is the case with the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. To add to the ever-growing popularity among fans is a new lego set that allows fans to recreate the famed Dodge Charger vehicle driven by the main character in the first half of the Fast and Furious series, Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. His 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is the newest Lego Technic kit to join the modern Lego “Technic” line. Even non-fan of the Fast and the Furious should recognize the memorable ’70 Charger R/T from the original entry of the franchise.

Relevance of the Dodge Charger

The black muscle car that went head-to-head with an orange Toyota Supra, the 1970 Charger R/T, stands out for many reasons. Keep in mind, the Dodge Charger R/T is still available in 2020 in its current form. As owners of any muscle car can tell you, owning one is one of the most memorable and happiest feelings a driver can experience. The popularity of the Fast and the Furious franchise is not stuck on just a single vehicle, but no other vehicle stands out as a way of bringing to mind the origin of the “Fast” story. Drag racing and seeing who could win, whether by an inch or a mile, winning is winning” as Toretto famously said. We know all about winning with the fresh, new line-up of Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars waiting for our customers.

More On the New Lego Technic Model

As for the Lego Technic model, it will debut as a 1:13 scale, 1,077-piece kit. The Lego Technic even includes a replica V8 engine under the hood with active, movable pistons! Also included is a wheelie bar and the famed NOS tanks to stash in the trunk. Don’t worry about the NOS making this replica version go any faster, but in the event it does happen, a toy fire extinguisher is placed inside of the cabin. Overall, the set looks like a very accurate representation of the Charger. The Dodge Charger models back in the 1970s provided a very strong and bold look, much like today and Lego Technic has done a great job of bringing out the design flawless. The detail can be noticed even within the headlights and taillights that give off a sense of realism to the final Lego build.
