Is This Lego Caterham the Best Kit Car Ever?

A tiny model of a tiny car…

What do you get when you cross the greatest toy ever, a classic British car manufacturer and 10,000 fans? The promise that the iconic Caterham Seven will be immortalised in Lego.

Lego builder Carl Greatrix submitted the Caterham concept to Lego Ideas last year. Ideas which receive 10,000 votes of support from Lego fans are then considered by the review team, which selects the ideas that will make it through to production.

Carl’s Lego Caterham gained 10,000 votes between May and September last year, and will now go in to production, although he retail price and colour scheme of the set are yet to be confirmed.

The new set will allow Lego and car fans the chance to build their very own miniature version of the lightweight British sportscar, once production starts later in 2016.

Mike McCoy, from the Lego Ideas team, said: “Carl is known in the Lego community for his realistic models of cars, trains and aircraft. He’s perfectly captured the classic British sportscar in Lego bricks.”

“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,” added Caterham chief commercial officer, David Ridley. “The great thing about Lego toys is that they are timeless – 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.”
