It can be said that the popularity of LEGO Speed Champions sets stems from their unique blend of innovation, authenticity, and the timeless appeal of iconic automotive designs. These sets not only capture the essence of beloved real-world vehicles but also provide enthusiasts with an immersive building experience. The attention to detail in replicating every curve and feature of renowned cars, coupled with the inclusion of minifigures, brings these miniature automotive masterpieces to life. A diverse range of well-known car models also makes Speed Champions LEGO sets highly sought after, creating a global community of enthusiasts who appreciate the intersection of play, craftsmanship, and a passion for all things fast and iconic. We take a look at one of our favourites below:
The LEGO® Speed Champions model Koenigsegg Jesko (76900) is a 280-piece marvel that impeccably encapsulates the spirit of the Swedish hypercar. Embodying the advanced aerodynamic design of its real-life counterpart, this detailed replica promises an exhilarating on-track performance. The collectible model showcases a wide chassis, providing ample space for a meticulously crafted 2-seat cockpit and additional authentic detailing. Adding to the appeal of this set is the inclusion of a Koenigsegg driver minifigure, complete with a racing suit, safety helmet, and a wrench. With its precision in design and commitment to realism, the LEGO Speed Champions Koenigsegg Jesko stands as a testament to the intersection of automotive engineering and creative play.
To some LEGO® Koenigsegg Jesko may be a lesser known sports car within the LEGO Speed Champions theme but this is a cracking model of the limited edition Swedish car which sold out on its launch at the Geneva Motor show, and LEGO 76900 is about to follow suit and be fully sold out so you need to be quick. Already out of stock at LEGO.com, there are some available still at Amazon for a 15% discount at 16.99.

We are clearly big fans of the LEGO Speed Champions theme here at Investabrick and this one is no different. The theme has provided average annualised growth of over 20% on the retired sets and this is a great foundation upon which to buy the sets for future investment.
Some great examples within the theme include LEGO Speed Champions Audi R8 LMS Ultra (75873) which retired in December 2017 and is now worth 5 times its final RRP of £13 at £65 (31% annualised growth) and LEGO Speed Champions Bugatti Chiron (75878) which has done even better with a current value of £70 and annualised growth of 37% since retiring in 2018.
