A few weeks ago, I picked up some polybags at Wal-Mart and one of them was the new Speed Champions polybag, the Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO. This set comes with 70 parts and 4 stickers, tucked inside a box within the packaging. Black is the dominant color here, with a touch of gold that provides a great accent color for the car.
The build starts out by constructing the base of the car. Angle plates begin to shape the front of the car, with metallic gold 1 x 1 flat tiles providing the start of the car’s accent stripe.
The first sticker is used for the brake lights on the rear of the car. The rear also includes a 1 x 4 flat tile spoiler, clipped into place by two clear 1 x 1 round plates with underside bar.
The next steps build up the middle section of the car. Metallic gold 1 x 2 flat plates provide more of the car’s accent stripe. Unfortunately two studs are visible on each side; this is due to the SNOT brackets used to build up the side of the car. It’s a clever use of the brackets for the SNOT building techniques, so we’ll have to see how those two studs look in the end.
Next, more of the car’s middle section is built. This includes a pearl gold bar attached by a 1x 1 plate with clip on the rear of the car. This represents the “shark fin” that is present on the real version of the car.
And finally, the finishing details are added to the front of the car. Two grey sloped curves are used for the windshield, and three additional stickers are placed for the headlights and the Lamborghini logo on the hood.
The Speed Champions Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO polybag is a fun little build. Creative build techniques are used in several places, such as the gold accent stripe running down the side of the car (although at the unfortunate expense of two visible studs on either side of the car). The use of the gold rod to form the “shark fin” in the rear of the car is also a clever touch.
Polybags are great deal when you have the urge to make a quick LEGO build. The Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo EVO is well-worth the minimal investment in cost and time. With any luck, we’ll see more polybag-sized Speed Champions sets in the future.
