Dodge Launches LEGO Speed Champions Ad Campaign

LEGO® Speed Champions have been a surprise success since their launch a few years ago. The sets featured in the theme are based on a number of iconic motoring brands and with each new wave of sets, some of the brands really get behind the partnership with various promotional activity. One such car maker is Dodge, who have used one of the latest set releases in a new advertising campaign dubbed Metamorphosis. This short commercial features drag racing champion Leah Pritchett and a young girl playing with the new LEGO Speed Champions 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 1970 Dodge Charger R/T set which is available now.
