Very Realistic, But Model Is Flimsy.
" I got this set on Ebay in 2020, after it had retired, and it was almost as good as I hoped. The color scheme and lack of stickers is nice, and the engine and engine bay is phenomenal. The overall shape is good, too and the exhaust pipe is clever. The hood and trunk are not secured on well, but they still stay in place surprisingly well. However, the headlights, front mudguards, and dashboard feel loose and the heavy front piece is always falling off. And when the model is up on it's flimsy stilts, the slightest pressure is applied and DISASTER. The seatsand the transmission cover pop off, and the model partially breaks in half and is hard to fix. NOT good. Also, the model's playability can barely compete with a speed champions set- the front wheels are attached to each other, so the model can barely turn! This set is strictly a display model.
If you are looking for a display set or something for you'r antique car club, this is the set for you. If you want something to play with, I suggest the Creator Expert Ford Mustang or James Bond Aston Martin DB5.

Fun Build, Looks Great!
" I got more than I expected when I bought this set. It has A LOT of pieces for a 1-car Speed Champions set, and looks extremely realistic. The build seems different from most Speed Champions builds. The 36 stickers make it look extra- realistic, and the opening back windshield and moving roll cage add extra playability. I do wish that some of the stickers covered multiple pieces, as I had to spent extra time getting them on and lined up with each other. Not fun. I also wish that the color under the back end was consistent gray or black, not a mixture of blue, gray and black.
If you are looking for a realistic set or a good deal, this is the perfect set for you. If you hate stickers, I reccomend the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger set.

Realistic, but color is wrong.
" I always enjoy building Lego motorbikes, and this is one of my favorites. The build is new and fun for a Creator Expert set, and the pieces are easy to find, and the model is realistic and huge. The V2 engine is realistic but dumb because the pistons are totally hidden from sight. And pretty much the every light bluish gray piece should be replaced with a chrome silver one. I am positive that there is no Fat Boy in the world with anything but a silver engine, shock absorbers, wheels, and handlebars. The light bluish gray mistake wrecks the motorbike’s looks. I also wish that pieces more smooth than barrels were used to end the exhausts and shock absorbers. I would also like to see the back fender secured on better, as it bends down onto the back wheel if pressure is applied. And, all the studs under the chain get to me.
This is overall a good set, and would recommend it to anybody looking for a fun and exciting Creator Expert set to build. And would advise anyone who cares about colors or perfect realisticness to buy the Ford Mustang instead.

Great value for price!
" This is way, way more than I would expect from a $13 Technic set. It has no more features than the Porsche 911 RSR, which costs over 10 times its price. and, all of it's features work great! However, I do wish that a little effort was put into making sides for the hood. It looks weird seeing the chassis and gears in there. And also, lime pins would have done this set a big favor.
If you are looking for a good deal on a small lego technic set, buy this set with no further delay. I never get tired of playing with it.

" Well, this set is bad and good at the same time. For $150 and having 1,580 pieces, this set is absolutely immense. It is almost as big as the Chiron, the Sián, and the 911 GT3 RS, but for half or less of the price. But gave this set an average rating because the body is full of gaps and holes, there are almost 60 stickers, the headlights bulge unrealistically, the engine compartment looks like a pile of technic pieces, and the whole car only has 2 features, one of which hardly functions. Yes, I did say 2 features on a $150 TECHNIC SET!!! And, the steering has the most backlash I have ever seen on a Lego set, and it barely works. Also, to reach the steering wheel, you need to remove the seat. This set is screaming out for a steering knob in the engine compartment! At least the super-unrealistic engine works great.
If you are looking for a highly functional or realistic set, spend extra and save up for the Chiron, the Sián, or the 911 GT3 RS. If you are trying to save money or trying to find a cheap but large display piece, buy this set with no further delay.
