Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 For the Price of 1! I am relatively new to the Lego family (although my older son has been building sets for years and was a big influence on me to start building)...In my youth, I would spend hours upon hours of building, painting, etc. plastic models of all kinds of things...but cars models were my favorite...I recently built the VW Bug (1,167 pieces - 9 hour build) and the Technic Porsche 911 RSR (1,580 Pieces – 21 hours build) and I needed something to get me through the time being spent at home (stay-at-home orders NY) and waiting for my back orders from Lego to be filled... I liked the idea that it was a kit that you could build 2 different models...the ZR1 and a “hot rod”... It was an approximately a 4.5 hour total build (2 hours on the Hot Rod, 2.5 hours on the ZR1)... I built the hot rod first and then broke it down and then built the ZR1...considering the set was a limited amount of pieces (600ish) it was a great set and well worth the price...interesting that the instructions for the hot rod were only on-line - saved on 2 sets of printed plans...I actually liked the on-line instructions - built both models from them...they are great - they are 3D and can be manipulated to turn the images in any direction... The build difficulty was on a 3 level... Needless to say, I am hooked and already on the "slippery slope" of Lego...no surprise here...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rebuild Value! For reference this is my first technic build in years but I had to purchase this as soon as I saw my favorite corvette built after 1969 (stingray). When I saw the rear differential on page 1 I was immediately excited to see what internals this build had in store. The overall design of this set is wonderful with the detail in the motor really shining through. The pistons on this model actually fire and are truly unique to this set as far as I know. They are connected to the rear wheels which is a nice touch considering the zr1 is a rear wheel drive vehicle. I am also very impressed with the turning system. It adds a layer of playability aven for older builders. This set isn't visually perfect but it is always difficult to create curves on a small scale model like this one. The interior of this model is lacking slightly with only 2 racing seats and a steering wheel but I buy technic sets mainly for the mechanical attributes regardless. I also wish that the doors opened but again it is a smaller model and space is at a premium. It comes with 7 extra parts that are all small and easy to lose track of so they were well chosen and appreciated. The most unique part is the rebuild value of this 2in1 set. It can also be made into a hot rod using online instructions. These instructions are, however, not yet available in the website so I cannot yet build it. Hopefully this is fixed in the future as I am looking forward to disassembling and rebuilding this set. Overall this was one of my favorite builds in memory and I highly recommend it. I hope Lego makes more 2in1 sets like this in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2019 Corvette Not bad for a 500+ pieces sport car. Orange color and V-8 hooked up to a drive train will cause the pistons to go up and down when you roll the rear tires!! Must buy for any muscle car lover !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $50 technic set in a while. Just picked up last night. I love the scale of this set. It comes with several new parts like the wheels, smaller wheel arch panels, new free spinning gear like the tan ones, a few rare parts and at least a dozen 3 stud closed ended axles used to make the compact V8, already have plenty of engine block parts. Its full of parts you don't normally get many of without buying the high $ sets. You won't be disappointed. Wish I had two to keep one together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting build details I always enjoy a good Technic build. Although I feel the end result isn't the most pleasing to look at, the building experience is top-notch. LEGO designers always impress me with their techniques. I particularly like the mechanism that allows the steering axle to pass through the plain of the drive-line without interference. They probably could have designed around that detail and made it simpler, but I appreciate the solution they used because it makes it all more enjoyable. I've plans to get the new car transporter (42098) set next. I see that this model can work with it just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun build Overall I had a blast building this car. It was my first Lego set since I was about 10. I had tons of star wars legos. Very easy for beginners.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Corvettes Egg i.e. good in parts! First of all - time taken: working only bits of (most) evenings & with severely limited space (table 2 foot x 14 inches) I transfer the contents of each bag of bits into a large easy seal freezer bag, so I have as many of them as were parts bags. I then pull out of these bags only the bits as illustrated for the particular stage being built - usually from 2 to 10 or 12 parts. I have to search thro' the bags for each stage which slows things down a fair bit... but it works. This Corvette builds quite well. There are only 8 stickers, all quite large and easily placed. There are a few pictures in the manual where the build is obscured but usually it is logical & obvious anyway. Main criticism of the end result is that the rear wheels are too small for the arches, or the arches too big for the wheels, otherwise it looks ok. The remote steering feature could be better - the operating knob on back of the rear panel has too much axle poking out - a bit ugly. The "working engine" feature is gimmicky but works well. Although I still have to add the rear wing as the crucial short axle connector is missing from my set and I have no spare... a part is on the way :-) Overall this 'vette looks not bad when finished (if you like the Technic effect) and is reasonable value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is a cool set, but not the best I recommend this set to everyone, who loves the Corvette. I enjoy building it. This is not the best technic set, but has cool features. One big dissapointment, that the doors can not open, and the steering wheel is fix, dont move. The pistons are very cool. I think i will buy another set and build the B model too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hot rod Recieved this as a gift as I personally did not want to purchase because I don't like the way the ZR1 looks in Lego form. I was going to return the gift but saw that I could build a hot rod instead. The finished rod looks pretty cool. The doors do not open and the only thing that is interactive is the engine pistons moving when the vehicle is pushed. I like the rod but it could have used some flame decals to make it a bit more eye catching.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So its a Corvette In general I am not happy about spending the money on this set - it could be more functional and look more like a Corvette especially from the front - For a Technic there is a bunch of things missing that could have easily been incorporated such as opening doors, moving rear wing, operable steering wheel, and the placement of a gear shift lever (there is none) - I feel honestly that Lego did this one based on the fact that everyone wants a "Vette and will spend the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Technic The other half has been saying I need to try the Technic's kits but I have been resisting as all those tiny little gears and cogs were putting me off. Why? Why did I let that put me off? This was a really fun build although the fact that it comes with a plethora of bags (okay i think it was 4) that are not numbered so you need to open them all before you start the build. My table was covered in pieces because I have to lay everything out in colour and piece order. Yes, it makes building easier for me but it also looks kind of pretty on the table. No joke, half an hour of the build time was just me sorting pieces before I even opened the booklet. I'm not sure how close the finished product is to a genuine Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 but it looks great on my shelf which could just be due to the colour as the orange is really bright. I was going to break it down and download the Hot Rod instructions but I didn't have the heart once it was finished. May buy a second version of the kit just to do the Hot Rod but we shall see. Number Of Pieces: 579 Approximate Price Per Piece: £0.07 Build Time: 3 Hours 10 Minutes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job all in all The designers at Lego have done a phenomenal job with this set. They were able to make a model within a lower price range that does a great job at representing the actual thing. Some people may be unhappy with the lack of detail but honestly the designers did what they could with a small package and I'm honestly proud of being a Lego fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great intro to LEGO cars bought this car to see how I liked the LEGO car builds. I hadn't bought a LEGO set since I was way younger and used to love them, so I figured I'd try one of these. After building this I immediately bought the Mustang set. It's not extremely complicated, but it has 2 builds (the pictured version and the hot rod, this website has instructions for that build) and I had fun with it. Great combo of fun & nostalgia for anyone who grew up building sets; bonus if you're into cars. I'll be buying more Technic/ Creator Expert sets for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need help!! I built this and loved it, but have a problem as it wont move. I did the very first part incorrect. Please see picture. My rear wheels go in opposite directions. Is there any way I can fix this, without taking it all apart???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Technic Car? Yes. Corvette? Not so much. I got this set thinking “Let’s take a whack at a Technic set. I haven’t done one of those in a while.” As a set, it’s okay. It’s a decent looking car with a nice color scheme and pretty cool wheels. What can it do? Steer. That’s it. The doors don’t even open, which is a little strange, but i guess the design didn’t allow for opening doors. Speaking of which, this is *supposed* to look like a Corvette. The most Corvette-looking side is the back with the tail lights, but every other side is just “eh, sort of.” The wheels need to be just a bit bigger to fit the rest of the car, and the front end is a little rough, but looks okay. Not too bad. I found an RC mod for it and plan to increase playability by doing that in the future. If you bought two of these and did one into the Hot Rod, you could have 3 cars on the Car Transporter. Just a thought. Try it out for yourself, but my opinion is it’s alright for the price even if it looks nothing like a Corvette. Have fun and keep building!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from More like a poorvette if you ask me. First things first, LEGO goes on an amazing Streak with the Bugatti Chiron, Porsche 911, and the new ‘67 mustang. All big, detailed, and accurate cars that I would (and will) gladly buy. But then they come out with this. It looked pretty cool on the box, but when I bought it I was thoroughly disappointed. •the look, it doesn’t look like a corvette. It looks like a bunch of curves and angles, with waaaayyyy to many gaps. And large gaps at that. • is that an engine? It’s just some rounded technic pieces pushing on small axles with a half bushing on top! It’s more like a camshaft and the valves to me, I would’ve preferred if they put an actual V8 LEGO engine instead of this poor excuse, why even do that? You have done V8s before! • for a licensed product, it’s like they didn’t even try. They should’ve released either a full sized technic model of this, or, a classic ‘63 stingray to appeal to People who would rather buy a LEGO ‘vette then this.... thing.... All in all, very disappointed, here are some cars LEGO should try either with technic, or with bricks, all full sized though. •a 1963 Chrysler Turbine • a Mazda RX-7 Both of these are cars that have never had a LEGO set made that would cause a lot of new LEGO fans. Thank you for listening to my rant. Goodbye now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set I got this set from my friend's mom. I was surprised when I saw it was $50, but it was a good set to build and it looked pretty good, too. There are yellow and brown axles which go up and down when you move the car. However, you're going to have to move it with an axle at the back of the car which you can twist to make the car turn left or right. Other than that, it was a decent set to get. (You can also turn it into a Hot Rod, which I haven't built yet.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the effort to build it. Just some recommends suggestions when you're building it: Since the bags are not numbered, as they are with Creator Kits, you might want to empty the bags into bowls or similar, so the pieces are easier to sort through. Secondly, follow the instructions carefully because if you go wrong it’s quite a job to take it apart to go back. Otherwise it’s a good absorbing build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great introduction into Lego Technic A little about me at first, I am an avid car enthusiast and I have just started building and painting plastic model car kits. This has been my first Lego set in years. I wanted to try Lego Technic for its moving mechanical components as opposed to the curbside plastic models I glue and paint. I saw this Chevy Corvette and thought why not try it out (as it was cheaper than all other Technic car sets) and its colour is really eye popping. I read all the reviews on this particular model and despite some of the negative feedback, I decided to purchase it. The build experience was a pleasure to the point that I was pacing myself and doing a bit each day to stretch it out over a week and building my corvette was my favourite part of the day to look forward to. The mechanical components like the V8 engine and rear differential assembly were incredibly fun to build. The model itself after being completed resembles a Chevrolet Corvette pretty accurately. Keyword here is resembles... If you are looking for a model replica of the Corvette, look into buying a plastic model kit, not this kit. With what pieces Lego had provided with this kit, I think they did an excellent job. This model now stands beside my other plastic model kits and I will be purchasing other Technic sets after this fun experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lego Corvette- why I think it's worth it As the corvette zr1 is currently my favourite car, I was quick to get one. Overall I think the overall shaping of the car is a little bit off and some very peculiar techniques were used. However it does have that awesome corvette vibe and the car really shines when you flip it over and look deep down inside...
