Top 10 Coollectible Lego Cars

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve most likely seen some of the awesome Lego cars the company has been producing lately via their regular Lego line, but also under some of their other lines, like Creator, Speed Champions, or Technic. It’s important to note that all cars are officially licensed, therefore incredible attention to detail goes into the creation of each car, no matter the price tag.

But how did Lego get its start bringing today’s most exquisite cars to living rooms? Well, it all started in the ’70s with a line called Lego Racers. This was Legos’ first attempt at bringing Formula 1 cars to its builders. It was instantly a hit and several race track themed sets were produced in the ’80s and ’90s.  Fast forward a few years and we now have several lines dedicated to the auto industry.
