Technicians from the specialist British sportscar manufacturer have teamed up with the world-renowned toy maker to create the first ever LEGO Caterham – the 620R – and it's due to hit the shelves next month.
Originally submitted by fanatic Carl Greatrix to the LEGO Ideas platform, in which fans can submit their ideas for new LEGO sets, the Seven gained the requisite 10,000 votes and the LEGO Ideas Review team selected the 620R to go into production.
Consisting of over 770 pieces, including a replica 620R engine and gear stick, the LEGO Caterham stands 10cm tall and 28cm long. Other unique features include:
- Removable nose cone
- Removable engine cover
- Steering wheel
- Opening boot
- Functioning axle stands which allow the wheels to be removed
Caterham Chief Commercial Officer, David Ridley, said: “Caterham has always prided itself on producing bespoke, hand-built cars for its customers. Our army of fans who build their own Caterham Sevens are equally discerning when it comes to the detail and craftsmanship which is central to Caterham, and we worked closely with the LEGO team to ensure the LEGO model replicated that…. It’s really satisfying to know that fans can recreate and build their own 620R with LEGO bricks.”
The Caterham LEGO 620R will be available to buy from October 1, priced at £69.
