Caterham Seven gets the Lego treatment

Published 15 March 2016

It’s one of the most recognisable car designs – now the Caterham Seven is to be immortalised with a new Lego set.

The kit will allow fans of sports cars and the popular construction kit to build their very own version of the British two-seater.

Like the Land Rover, DeLorean and Mini builds that went before it, the Seven was submitted to the Danish company via its ‘Ideas’ system.

Lego builder Carl Greatrix submitted the Caterham concept and gained the required 10,000 votes between May and September last year.

After being reviewed by the company, the kit has been given the green light and will go into production later this year – although prices and colour schemes have yet to be confirmed.

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

David Ridley, Caterham’s chief commercial officer, said it was an honour for the model to get its own Lego kit, adding, ‘The great thing about Lego toys is that they are timeless.’

Ridley said, ‘If you know someone who has always wanted a Caterham Seven, you can now tell them you’re getting them one.’
