Building this Lego Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was a blast, and fits right into my car collection.

Ever since I was a little kid I always enjoyed Legos, I had huge amounts of them, and along the way ended up giving them away because I “grew up”. Well here I am later in life deeply regretting that!

This build really does look great, and is perfect for Lego, and car fans

However now I have found a new part of Legos to enjoy! Lego Technic is a little bit different style of legos, where instead of interlocking bricks, you are given interlocking pieces instead of bricks. This allows for a much more “complicated” feel to the build.

My latest build is one of my favorites that I have been looking forward to for a while. The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 pays homage to one of the currently fastest Corvettes (we’ll see what happens when the C8 mid-engine Corvette comes out) that is out right now.

Let’s take a look at the build of this Corvette

The Box for the ZR1

The Lego Technic Box shows that this build has 579 pieces, but you can ignore the 9+ age thing… its fun for older people as well. Like me.

The back of the box shows that this can also be built into a hot rod. But let’s be honest… who will do that.

Building the Corvette

This is the first piece of the build you make. It would be comparable to the transmission.

Here is the beginning of the frame being combined with the transmission

This is the start of the engine components being put together.

The front end of this Lego Corvette looks pretty mean!

Putting the roof on really made this start to look like the end product

And here it is all finished! There is a knob on the back to turn the front wheels, and the pistons go up and down when you roll the car on the ground.

Conclusion of why I like this Corvette build

Okay so this isn’t the most “grown up” thing that I could do with my time. But the Lego Technic Corvette ZR1 was a lot of fun to put together. Now it sits next to one of my other builds.

Also, if you want to buy this one yourself, make sure to check out more about it on Lego’s website. If this set though is a bit out of budget, this set is also a ton of fun.

Now, hopefully they make a Corvette C8 version!
