Caterham Seven Gets a Lego Kit

Build a scale replica out of plastic blocks.

For those wanting a build-it-yourself scale replica of the Caterham Seven, Lego has your answer. The plastic brick toy brand is releasing a new kit to build the iconic lightweight roadster.

The idea for a Caterham Seven Lego kit was submitted by Carl Greatrix to the Lego Ideas Review team. The submission reached 10,000 votes from Lego fans from May to September last year, the minimum number of votes needed for a submission to be considered for production.

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

Although Greatrix supplied several complete cars constructed out of Lego blocks, the official kit is still in development and will likely vary in appearance once they go on sale in the U.K. later in 2016.

"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," said Caterham chief commercial officer David Ridley. "If you know someone who has always wanted a Caterham Seven, you can now tell them you're getting them one."

Pricing and colors of the kit will be revealed closer to release. Lego hasn't said whether the Caterham Seven kit will come to the U.S.

Earlier this year, Lego revealed a Ford Mustang kit and a Ford F-150 Raptor with Model A hot rod kit at the 2016 Detroit auto show.
