The best LEGO car sets of 2022


There’s something about cars that lends itself to building with LEGO pieces. This is due to the inherent variety of these types of builds, which require almost every technique in a single compact set. Wheels and axles are needed. Pins and gears are needed to create a steering mechanism. You need LEGO Technic for the chassis of the car. You need printed tiles and a minimalist design to cover the interiors. And finally, you need the classic and traditional bricks to plate the chassis and give the vehicle its characteristic curves.

The cars also make great LEGO sets for adults. Following you will find Top 10 LEGO Car Sets of 2022. These are outstanding vehicle builds (including trucks and a motorcycle) that represent the best in automotive design, from the classic muscle cars of the 1960s to the deadly superhero cars of today.

  • Number of pieces: 1508
  • Dimensions: 15x27x12 cm

5. Ford Mustang

  • Set: #10265
  • Age: +16
  • Number of pieces: 1471

3. DeLorean from Back to the Future

  • Set: #10300
  • Age: +18
  • Number of pieces: 1872
  • Dimensions: 12x35x19 cm

The Back to the Future time machine is a modified Delorean, and this set lets you build all three versions: the original, with a hook on the roof to harness the clock tower’s lightning bolts; the updated version, which flies on fusion energy; and the weathered version of the Old West, with vacuum tubes and whitewall tires.

2. Armored Batmobile

  • Set: #76240
  • Age: +18
  • Number of pieces: 2049
  • Dimensions: 16x45x25 cm

Three years ago, LEGO released a classic Batmobile based on the Michael Keaton movies. This bulky Tumbler is inspired by the military Batmobile from the Dark Knight trilogy, complete with huge tires and a jet engine. Also includes a Heath Ledger Joker LEGO minifigure, complete with his signature grin.

1. Ferrari Daytona SP3

  • Set: #42143
  • Age: +18
  • Number of pieces: 3778
  • Dimensions: 14x59x25 cm

It is the supercar of supercars. This set takes LEGO Technic to its artistic peak. Adding to its sleek design, the LEGO Ferrari features signature butterfly doors that swing up and out, as if you’re about to strap in for take-off. And of course the classic sporty red paint.

The only problem with this set (and most of them) is its price: they are luxury cars at luxury prices. And these prices send a message: that the sets are largely aimed at an adult audience with disposable income.

Yes, there are other vehicle sets that are kid-friendly, but they are the complete opposite of the best: very simple builds that are not challenging for beginners. What LEGO really needs are mid-priced models, between $50 and $150, that give kids and intermediate builders a great experience for less money. Sets like the retired Aston Martin are in short supply. It’s a shame, because the LEGO system is equitable in its very essence. And cross-generational appeal is rarely cost prohibitive.
