6 Best Lego Creator Car Sets – Reviews
Today I will review the 6 best Lego Creator Expert car sets that you can currently buy. My list will include brief reviews of the top models in this Lego category. All of these models are exclusive Lego Creator sets developed in partnerships with appropriate automotive companies.
Before we start, I’d like to note that if you are looking for more technical and more advanced sports cars Lego sets, I recommend you to check out my other article on this blog that reviews the top 7 car Lego sets that you can purchase today. That list includes the well-known Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián set or the Porsche 911 set as well.
Now let’s dive in to my reviews:
Lego Creator Expert 10265 Ford Mustang
I’m starting off my list with the Lego Creator Expert car set that I personally like most, the Ford Mustang set. It is a realistic model of the 60s Mustang. It was created in partnership with the Ford Motor company. The model features a nicely detailed interior. And you can also customize it with a front splitter, front & rear spoilers, large compressor, short exhaust headers or nitrous oxide tank. Besides all that, it features adjustable suspension, too. And it comes with more variations of license plates that you can use. Overall, I would say this is a really nice Lego set and it could be an ideal gift for every boy (16+) or even for adult men.
Lego Creator Expert 10252 Volkswagen Beetle
The second place on this list is reserved for the cyan blue Volkswagen Beetle. This vehicle is a classical model that made a remarkable impact in both German and global automotive industry history. This authentic Lego set nicely shows the VW Beetle’s characteristic design. You can open the hood and will be able to see a backup wheel and the fuel tank. Other features include the typical rounded lights and turn signal lights. The interior is very detailed, like on all Creator Expert sets. In conclusion, I can say that Lego has done a great job in converting this car icon with its iconic design into a nice Lego set.
Lego Creator 10242 Mini Cooper
The next one on my list is the smallest one from all these reviews. It’s the typical Mini Cooper MK IV in the dark green color. You may know this car model from the Mr Bean’s TV comedy series. This Mini Cooper model was produced in late 1997 / early 1998. The features of this set include a spare wheel, the boot or even a pick-nick hamper with bread, cheese and glasses. This English classic vehicle Lego model has the dimensions of 9″ long, 4″ high and 5″ wide.
Lego Creator 10262 Aston Martin 007
The fourth set on this list is a model of the authentic replica of the famous sports vehicle Aston Martin DB5 from the year 1964. This exact model was used in a James Bond movie. It features a V6 engine or other clever solutions like revolving number plates, working ejector seat, hidden telephone, front wing machine guns and bulletproof shield. The model comes in the original silver birch color. The dimensions of the finished set are 13 inches long, 3 inches high and 4 inches wide.
Lego Exclusives 10220 VW T1 Camper Van
Another one on my list is a Lego replica of the Volkswagen T1 Camper Van from the year 1962. This VW caravan model comes in red & white color. This is an older set from 2011. Despite being an older Lego set, I decided to include it in this list, as it still looks good. It comes with some realistic details like, for example, classical VW logo, 4-cylinder engine, rounded roof and the windscreen made of 3 parts. This set comes with 1,332 pieces.
Lego Creator 10271 Fiat 500
This Fiat 500 Lego set is an exclusive model of the traditional Italian car icon from the Italian automotive history. You could have seen this car model being featured in many older Italian movies representing the “La Dolce Vita”. For example, one of these movies that I’ve personally seen is called Under the Tuscan sun. Or if you know the Italian city called Positano (on the Amalfi Coast), this car model was representing this city in the past, too.
Finally, to conclude this Lego Creator car sets reviews, I’d like to say that I pretty-much enjoyed writing this article, as I’m a big car fan and a Lego lover, as well. And if you are wondering which set from this list would be my choice, it would be the Ford Mustang, as it reminds me the Fast & Furious movie. However, I would also consider the Fiat 500, because I love Italy and its history.
I hope I have helped you to choose your favorite car Creator Lego set. 🙂
