Live Out Your Fast And Furious Dreams With Dom’s Charger R/T From Lego Technic

Fast and Furious fans will have to wait a little longer to see Dominic Toretto and the gang as F9 was pushed back until April 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, you can still get your Fast and Furious fix thanks to a new kit from Lego Technic.

Dubbed Dom’s Dodge Charger, the kit is a replica of the 1970 Charger R/T that has been featured in numerous Fast and Furious films. It, of course, played a central role in the original movie and has reappeared a few times since then.
