This is the muscle car owned by the main character in the first half of the Fast and Furious series, Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto. The sleek, polished black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T is the latest Lego Technic kit to join the new Lego “Technic” line. The vehicle is a memorable cast-member in some respects to the Fast and the Furious film. A memorable ’70 Charger R/T from the first film of the long-running franchise.
