A nice slice of nostalgiaI purchased 75881 solely for the 1966 Ford GT40, a car I immediately fell in love with because of the beauty of the design, and I cannot say I am disappointed, having bought and built that car. The mixture of building techniques is brilliant, especially, in my opinion the, the building of the front of the car. My only complaint is the usage of stickers- but with the amount of decals included, I am not suprised by a lacklustre amount of printed parts.
The 2016 car is also quite neat, although I must admit I am not a fan of it's blue/red transformation color scheme, although I know many will disagree. This car is alot more hulking than it's smaller brother, and once again, the only complaint is the number of stickers (althoughthe windscreen is printed which is great).
Finally,the winner podium is a nice, but ultimately forgettable addition to the set, although the use of dark green parts is good, as it makes a change from grey or red.
Finnally the minfigures are well done, in particular the vintage jumpsuit driver, which brought a smile to my face due to the detail on him. Overall, a well done set, held back only by the usage of stickers, although this is not really the fault of the designers.

A Must for any Ford FanThe press pictures don't do these models enough justice; these models are even better in person! Nice attention to detail, given the size and scale we’re dealing with. They’re lighter than the Mustang GT, but just as durable. As with any modern race car, there is little ground clearance, so play on anything than a hard surface is not recommended. Take care when placing the wheels on the GT40; if they’re pushed all the way on, the wheels won’t spin as freely. Still more decals than I would like, but that seems to be the trend with this series. I do wish Lego would find a better way to package the decals, as they always seem to arrive bent or wrinkled. All-in-all, this set makes a wonderful addition to the Mustang GT, Raptor, and Model A Hot Rod Ford family.

A great setA very nice display set. Lego, please do more sets like that this show a snapshot of the history of the cars. You've done this recently with the excellent ultimate Ferrari Garage, so more please!
As with all Speed Champions, they have a lot of stickers which isn't everyone's taste, but I have no trouble with them, as working in engineering for over 20 years I delight in fine detail of all types.
I do often find the manuals and sticker sheets folded in half in the boxes which devalues the feel slightly, but overall, and excellent set.
