    That's not a Moonhawk bumper.

    The shape is completely different, it's a new bumper. I wonder if it means a facelift/prefacelift of the LeGran, or maybe it will be the Wendover bumper?

    Don't think it would be the Wendover bumper, but you never know. This is what one of the bumpers looks like:

    It looks like it, I think that like it looks different because of the angle of the camera in the photo

    to be honest, I think you're a bit wrong there
    if you look at the wendover, no it isn't the wendover bumper, as the wendover is curved, not a solid metal bar
    I think its a new moonhawk or legran-prefacelift bumper, or at least it looks like it
    the 2 bumpers, the current (moonhawk bumper) and unknown one are pretty similar, and they're both bruckell so it could fit both
    but I'm sure 100% it has nothing to do with the wendover
    that isn't the wendovers bumper period
    his prediction makes sense

    Maybe it's just a reworked Moonhawk bumper then?

    I don't think it is a Moonhawk bumper at all, I think it's more likely that it is just the bumper for the Legran's facelift.

    Nah, you don't notice it, but there is a bend in that bumper. Look at the shading.

    I think that's a Moonhawk bumper. You can see weld lines in it where it's sectioned to make it narrower to fit onto the front of the LeGran. Even the bolts lineup.

    This LeGran will most likely be an early 90's facelift as it really wouldn't make since to have a LeGran type car in the US in the 1970s.

    It's a whole new nose cone which to me suggests the LeGran might be getting new composite headlights to cover the 1988+ model years.

    That would be an incredibly strange choice for a factory bumper, I'm sure it was just grafted onto the derby config off of the Moonhawk as an alternate to the welded derby bumper

    I had a hunch that we could see a new fascia alongside the wagon. Can't wait to mess about with it in the near future,

    Wooooo! It's finally here, the wagon looks awesome. Those derby configs look better than your average derby/beater variant with more parts and overall looks cooler, I wonder if they're going to "remaster" the existing ones we have currently and add more little parts and little details to those. And I love that they used the Moonhawk bumper as an improvised replacement, makes it have that rough and buggered look.

    I assume we will see realistic derby configs in addition to the more rallyraid style beaters we have now.

    Proper derby configs will all require an interior up to the current standards (as well as a place for a fuel cell and any extra options) since they need to be stripped down. So I doubt we will see a full derby vehicle content update just since so many cars need their interiors brought up to current standards first, unless we see WIP configs for the older cars (which would be out of character for the team lately)

    Me, it would be a nice addition.

    If we look closely we can see that ETK 800 and K-series already have rear parking sensors modeled on the bumper. And the K-series has a front camera under the front badge.
