For reference this is my first technic build in years but I had to purchase this as soon as I saw my favorite corvette built after 1969 (stingray). When I saw the rear differential on page 1 I was immediately excited to see what internals this build had in store. The overall design of this set is wonderful with the detail in the motor really shining through. The pistons on this model actually fire and are truly unique to this set as far as I know. They are connected to the rear wheels which is a nice touch considering the zr1 is a rear wheel drive vehicle. I am also very impressed with the turning system. It adds a layer of playability aven for older builders. This set isn't visually perfect but it is always difficult to create curves on a small scale model like this one. The interior of this model is lacking slightly with only 2 racing seats and a steering wheel but I buy technic sets mainly for the mechanical attributes regardless. I also wish that the doors opened but again it is a smaller model and space is at a premium. It comes with 7 extra parts that are all small and easy to lose track of so they were well chosen and appreciated. The most unique part is the rebuild value of this 2in1 set. It can also be made into a hot rod using online instructions. These instructions are, however, not yet available in the website so I cannot yet build it. Hopefully this is fixed in the future as I am looking forward to disassembling and rebuilding this set. Overall this was one of my favorite builds in memory and I highly recommend it. I hope Lego makes more 2in1 sets like this in the future.

C'mon, you know you want to buy this becasue of the hot rod build. :) I am about halfway through the build and really like this set. The ‘vette is OK, but I wish LEGO would release a giant sized hot rod set. I have been buying several LEGO sets because the alternate builds are cooler than the front of box ones. I've been playing with them for forty years and still having fun. Update: Finished both builds. My opinion is that this kit was designed by the accountants at LEGO. It should have been marketed as a retro hot rod kit at $25-30. Then there should have been a larger $350 super detailed large Corvette kit released in the style of their big Bugatti kit. Instead, you get the most underwhelming ‘vette build ever and an awesome, but overpriced hot rod. Total missed opportunity on both ends. I still think the hot rod is great though. ;)

average 7.8 / 10 by Jim

I love everything about this model. Given the scale, the designer really made this model stand out. And for 40 euros you get a very fun little model. That boils down to only 6,5 eurocent per part, which is cheap. This is the perfect gift if you are looking for a reasonably priced Technic set. Two big thumbs up for this set! I sure hope we get more sets like this, which obviously is to be expected.

I really had a blast building this set, right from the first step to the last. The final model looks fantastic, sleek and is a great representation of one the world's finest supercars. It is also one of the most photogenic sets I have had the pleasure to shoot this year. For seasoned builders, there is a lot of enjoyment to be had with this set and for younger builders it will be on the right side of challenging as well as being an amazing introduction into the world of engineering. It is a great piece to have on display and with a fairly modest price tag this set comes highly recommended.

42093 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is an impressive model on the whole, although its comparatively small scale has imposed some notable limitations upon the design. For instance, the nose appears realistic when viewed from certain angles but a number of important details have been omitted. Moreover, the tyres are disproportionately small which detracts from the vehicle's appearance in my opinion.
