Hope you haven’t spent all your Christmas money yet. Pictures of Lego’s upcoming Speed Champions set for 2016 recently surfaced on Brickset, and this time around it isn’t just supercars and race cars alone. 

Comprising of seven new sets, the headlining addition to the range are cars from Audi, Chevrolet, and Ford.

From Audi Lego has recreated the Audi R18 e-tron quattro Le Mans Prototype race car (pictured above), and the Audi R8 LMS ultra race cars.

Chevrolet makes an appearance in this collection with the new Corvette Z06, and a drag race set complete with a classic Camaro and the new Camaro.

Ford on the other hand brings the most interesting sets to the collection with the new Ford Mustang GT, and the Ford F-150 Raptor with a trailer and a Ford Model A Hot Rod.

That being said, last year’s crop of supercar brands isn’t entirely excluded from 2016. Of the three, only Porsche makes a return with their Le Mans pit lane set, which also includes their Le Mans-winning Porsche 919 Hybrid and 917K. Talk about rubbing in their 2015 Le Mans victory to Audi. 

Update: It appears that Brickset has taken down the images of their 2016 Speed Champions sets. But the sets are still listed in their 2016 collection.
