Lego 76896 Speed Champions Nissan GT-R Nismo Review

If you have been reading my blog for some time already, you probably know that I’m a big fan of Lego cars. Recently I visited a local toys store and I spotted this small Nissan Lego model in it. I decided to buy it and give a try to this small set. In the following lines, I will give you an idea of this Lego kit.


Lego 76896 Nissan GT-R Nismo Set


To start off, I would like to say that this Lego building kit belongs to the Speed Champions collector’s Lego series (I also have an article about Ferrari Speed Champions Lego models on this blog, so be sure to check that one out as well if you like Ferraris). This Lego kit was released in 2020 and it is an official licensed product by Nissan. Actually, it is a realistic replica of the Nissan GT-R Nismo (racing version).

The whole model consists of 298 bricks and they are divided into 2 packs in the packaging. The first one includes bricks for the chassis of the vehicle and the second one includes the wheels, the windshield, the spoiler and some other exterior details. The color scheme of this car model is mostly white & black with some red detailing.

The building kit also includes racing stickers, actually there are 26 stickers in total for this model. I think that’s a pretty high number for such a small Lego model. It is a racing vehicle though, so that may explain that as racing sport cars usually feature many sponsors’ stickers (like e.g. the Motul ones).

It took me 1 and a half hours (with one small break) to fully assemble this small car Lego set. And I must say that it was a pretty easy build. I only had little problems with sticking some of the stickers properly.

This Lego kit also comes with one minifigure (dressed in the Nissan racing suit) that features the driver with a wrench. You can also choose to have either hair or the red driving helmet on it. And you can fit this minifigure into the cockpit of the vehicle as well.

Also, in the packaging you will find two different sets for the wheels’ rims so you have two options for their design to choose from.

The model is 6” (16 cm) long, 2” (5 cm) high and 3” (7 cm) wide. Also, since 2020, all Speed Champions Lego car sets are 25% bigger in order to include more details from the original car models.

This Lego set is recommended for kids of the age 7+. I believe it could be a great gift for every young boy.
