Real Caterham Seven Too Difficult To Build? Lego Launches Official Set

Caterham Lego Set

Car fans gather around, the iconic British lightweight is getting its own Lego set later this year.

After gathering 10,000 votes between May and September last year, Carl Greatrix’s proposal was green-lighted by Lego for production, allowing everyone to build their own miniature version of the Caterham Seven.

“Carl is known in the LEGO community for his photo-realistic models of cars, trains and aircraft,” said Mike McCoy, from the LEGO Ideas team. “He’s perfectly captured the classic British sportscar in LEGO bricks and now you’ll be able to own one too.”

“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 honor,” said David Ridley, Caterham’s Chief Commercial Officer. “If you know someone who has always wanted a Caterham Seven, you can now tell them you’re getting them one.”

The exact styling details of the Caterham Seven Lego set have not yet been finalized but fans will be able to find it in stores later this year.
