"We worked really closely with the Universal team to bring Dom's Dodge Charger to life in the most minute detail to inspire 'Fast & Furious' fans and Lego Technic builders around the world," said Samuel Tacchi who designed the set for Lego Technic in a press release.

Dom's Dodge Charger opens to show off its V8 engine and the trunk holds nitro bottles in the trunk to give the car an extra kick. The set also comes with a non-working fire extinguisher to keep upfront.
