There are rumours that LEGO Group plans to launch a new LEGO Group product. TechnicSupercar for summer 2022 But, the project has been delayed until next year.
StoneWars According to reports, electricBricks listed product 42143 in their listing earlier this week using the 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 TechnicSupercars were first introduced in 2016 by the 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 could have used this information to explain why they decided not to remove 42083 Bugatti Chiron 2021 from shelves. If 42143 is not available, then it would make sense to own a supercar.
This story is not confirmed so please be cautious. 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 TechnicFans without an enormous flagship set in 2022.
