As their release for sale gets closer today we've seen official LEGO imagery for the new Lamborghini twin-pack giving us our first proper look at the two models, including the rear of both the Huracan and Urus. We've also had a few new images of the Jaguar twin pack - both due for release January 1, 2020 and presumably making their debut on the LEGO Store some time in December.
After the initial announcement of the Speed Champions Jaguar I-PACE Formula E and E-PACE twin pack, next we're seeing the long awaited introduction of Lamborghini in the Speed Champions line up.

We'd seen some rumblings that a Jaguar Speed Champions twin pack was in the works at LEGO and sure enough, today we're seeing the announcement of a Formula E/iPace double pack.

The LEGO Group and the BBC today announced that we'll be seeing a Top Gear licenced LEGO set early next year, with realistic mechanisms. Based on our earlier post with 2020 Technic set information, we think we've figured out what to expect from this mid-range car themed set.

Given we recently reported the full-size LEGO McLaren Senna was on a small tour of the UK it seemed like a shame not to make a trip out to see it at Bluewater Shopping Center. We went and checked this ultra-realistic build out, along with the LEGO "I Love Cars" promotion going on alongside it.
After noticing an image in the build instructions for the Ferrari F1 Ultimate Garage set of a Speed Champions logo on the flank of a Mercedes-AMG GT we tracked the image down.
