Caterham has partnered with LEGO to produce miniature versions of the iconic Caterham Seven.
Set to launch later this year, the Caterham Seven LEGO set will allow both LEGO and car fans alike the chance to build their very own lightweight British sportscar.
The concept of a Caterham Seven set of the famous toy bricks was submitted to the LEGO Ideas system by LEGO builder, Carl Greatrix. It went on to receive 10,000 votes between May and September last year, where it was then considered by the LEGO Ideas Review team, which selects the ideas that will make it through to production.
Mike McCoy, from the LEGO Ideas team, said: “Carl is known in the LEGO community for his photo-realistic models of cars, trains and aircraft. He’s perfectly captured the classic British sportscar in LEGO bricks and now you’ll be able to own one too.”
Caterham Chief Commercial Officer, David Ridley, said: “The LEGO Company is one of the most iconic toy brands in the world so to have our car recreated in the legendary bricks is an enormous honour.
“The great thing about LEGO toys is that they are timeless – it certainly isn’t just children who love it; we have a few of our team members who are avid fans despite being well into their 40s. If you know someone who has always wanted a Caterham Seven, you can now tell them you’re getting them one.”
With the product still under development, the exact styling details of the Caterham Seven LEGO set are yet to be confirmed.
