Sometimes it isn’t enough to build one detailed car and leave it out on display. Some LEGO cars are meant to be played with and there are few models that are more tactile and engaging for teens than the Technic Car Transporter 42098 Lego Set. This 2-in-1 model has enough options and moving parts to entertain and educate.
This set provides a combination of building options and moving parts to entertain builders for longer.
This set has two vehicles – the sporty little blue car on its way to the showroom and the large red transporter truck. The truck is the star of this build with all the different moving parts and features. There is a nice design on the cab, which you can also tilt up to reveal the V6 engine. There are also two decks with a connected, pivoting trailer that should allow room for multiple vehicles. So, if you have other models that fit, you can store and transport your collection with ease. This is made easy via the adjustable ramps and the locks for the cars. Make sure to secure everything in place before setting off.
For a secondary element, the show car actually has more features and details than you might expect. There is a V8 engine with its pistons, a steering wheel to move the heels and that sporty shape. You can use this to test out all the ramps, or you could use the compatible 42093 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.
Another fun aspect of this build is that you can take it apart and recreate the car and truck with a whole new design. There are additional instructions for a single-deck trailer with a large cab made out of the blue car. The red elements of the original truck turn into a smaller fan and car. The versatility of this 2-in-1 model is ideal for builders that love playing with cars and don’t want a more complicated static model.
This multi-functional car transporter is a fun toy for kids with engineering aspirations.
While this might be an 11+ model, and therefore ideal for teenagers that want to learn more about cars, it is actually one of the larger LEGO sets of this kind. There are more than 1000 pieces here, which explains why the two models are so unique. This means that kids should enjoy the challenge and creative play of this Technic Car Transporter 42098 Lego Set for a long time.
