The Danish toy maker will release a miniature Caterham on 1 October, priced at £69
15 September 2016

The iconic Caterham Seven has been recreated in miniature by Lego and is due for official release next month.

Buyers of Lego set number 21307 can build the Caterham 620R using more than 770 individual bricks. The finished model is 10cm tall and 28cm long, and features a removable nose cone and engine cover, an opening boot and axle stands that allow the wheels to be removed.

 

The genesis of the project came from a Caterham fan, Carl Greatrix, who submitted his own design of Caterham Seven model to Lego’s Ideas platform, which lets the public vote on what should become an official set. After Carl’s idea received the requisite 10,000 votes, Lego examined the suggestion and approved it for production. It’ll go on sale on 1 October, priced at £69.

“Caterham has always prided itself on producing bespoke, hand-built cars for its customers,” said David Ridley, Caterham’s chief commercial officer. “Our army of fans who build their own Caterham Sevens are equally discerning when it comes to the detail and craftsmanship that is central to Caterham, and we worked closely with the Lego team to ensure the Lego model replicated that.

“The Lego 620R has various unique features – the intricately-designed engine was certainly a surprise when we lifted the bonnet for the first time. It’s really satisfying to know that fans can recreate and build their own 620R with Lego bricks.”

Lego fans haven’t been short of car models lately, as recent releases from the Danish toy maker include a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Volkswagen Beetle, Ferrari F40 and a Mini, as well as numerous racing cars.
