According to rumours, the LEGO Group was planning on releasing a Technic supercar in summer 2022. But, the release 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’There are 3,776 total pieces in the set and it is scheduled for release 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 could have used this information to explain why they decided not to remove 42083 Bugatti Chiron 2021 from shelves. In the event that 42143 is delayed, it makes perfect sense to keep 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.
