There are rumours that LEGO Group plans to launch a Technic supercar next summer. It has now been pushed back to next year.
StoneWars Reports state that electricBricks had posted an earlier listing for product 42143 during the week, with the codename “codename”. ‘TBD Technic Ultimate Car 2022’The set contains 3,776 parts and will be released in August 2022. That would follow the LEGO Group’s biennial release pattern for Technic supercars, which began in 2016 with 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
However, the same site now claims that 42143 won’t release in August – or indeed, in 2022 at all. The set has apparently been delayed until 2023, which StoneWars speculates is likely due to a delay to the real-life car that it’s based on. There’s no suggestion of what that might be, but its part count eclipses all three previous supercars, including 42083 Bugatti Chiron and 42115 Lamborghini Sían FKP 37.
LEGO Group may have reacted to this news by not removing 42083 Bugatti Chiron’s shelves from 2021. If 42143 is not available, then it would make sense to own a supercar.
Please be careful as this report has yet to be confirmed. But if it’s true, it’ll be interesting to see whether the LEGO Group accelerates production on a replacement model in the line-up, or just leaves Technic fans without a huge flagship set for 2022.
