Caterham Seven 620R immortalised by LEGO

British sports car marque Caterham and iconic toy maker LEGO have teamed up to create a plastic brick version of the barnstorming 620R.

Consisting of more than 770 pieces, including a replica 620R engine, it’s Caterham’s very first immortalisation in LEGO form.

Fan Carl Greatrix originally submitted his plan for a new set to the LEGO Ideas platform. The Caterham Seven gained the requisite 10,000 votes and the LEGO Ideas Review team selected the 620R to go into production.

The LEGO Caterham, which is priced at £69 and hits the shelves in october, stands 10cm tall and 28cm long. Other unique features which may cause fans to blow a gasket include:

  • Removable nose cone
  • Removable engine cover
  • Steering wheel
  • Opening boot
  • Functioning axle stands which allow the wheels to be removed

“Caterham has always prided itself on producing bespoke, hand-built cars for its customers,” said Caterham’s David Ridley.

“Our army of fans who build their own Caterham Sevens are equally discerning when it comes to the detail and craftsmanship which 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.”
