Lego has turned its attention to Jeep’s off-roading Wrangler in a new ultra-realistic model.
Reimagined in brick form, the Lego Technic Jeep Wrangler comprises of 665 pieces and incorporates features such as a button-operated front steering system and axle-articulation suspension which will allow the Wrangler to go here, there and everywhere.
Lars Thygesen, designer, Lego Technic, said: “The Jeep Wrangler is an icon in the off-road world.
“The Rubicon has a lot of the iconic details loved by 4×4 fans the world over, so it was important to me to pack as many of the authentic, powerful features of the real vehicle into the Lego Technic replica. I hope Lego fans and vehicle lovers enjoy all aspects, including the suspension, winch and open-air design that we developed alongside the talented Jeep design team.”
Priced at £44.99 and due to go on sale from January 1, each model features a striking yellow and black colour scheme – just like the real car.
Christian Meunier, global president of the Jeep brand, said: “With an 80-year legacy that reaches around the world, our owners, fans and followers have quite literally grown up with us.
“Our partnership with the Lego Group gives our enthusiasts another inclusive opportunity to share the passion they have for the Jeep Wrangler, a global automotive icon that represents fun, freedom and unbridled adventure.”
