In the lower price bracket we've 4 basic car sets at £12.99. Each has the vehicle, driver and a small accessory - chequered flag, trophy, barrier, fantastic little 2 part orange cones which really work far better than they have a right to.
Personally we think it's excellent that LEGO have chosen to feature these big 3 Hybrid Supercars. Without the big money pumped into research by these huge companies, the technology would never become cheap enough to trickle down to the everyday user.

The McLaren P1 set 75909....which we review here...
The next in the range is the McLaren Mercedes Pit Stop set 75911, including the MP4-29 Formula 1 Car - with a spare nose!
The Porsche 911 GT Finish Line Set 75912 is the next at £39.99 for a 551 piece set with 2 Porsche 911 GT cars, a 2in1 mini pit garage and podium with a flag that raises, and an overhead gantry finish line with dropping start lights.
The largest set is the F14T and Scuderia Ferrari Truck at £79.99 for 884 pieces. The truck, the Ferrari F14T Formula 1 car and a multitude of tools and crew, including a spare nose and wheels.
I expected the LEGO Speed Champions sets to be expensive, and potentially a bit flat. In fact I think they're stunningly good value and they offer a great deal for adult collectors and fans, and youngsters alike.
All of the Speed Champions are recommended for 7-14, and that seems right to me because they're intricate and use a lot of small parts attached to other small parts (tricky for very young fingers), and the builds aren't instantly rewarding in the way that younger builders need - so that they don't become bored before they have something recognisable in their hand.
The cars are incredibly solid builds that have good weight in your hand and will not fall apart during play or transportation, and they look great.
