The LEGO Group has revealed the first-ever LEGO Technic Top Gear Set in partnership with BBC Studios. The new LEGO Technic App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car is an authentic-looking GT Rally car for ages 9 and above.
LEGO Technic designers joined forces with the BBC “Top Gear” team to co-design the body of the car and accompanying stickers.
“It’s exciting to have collaborated with LEGO Technic on this and it’s a very natural fit for the Top Gear brand,” says Jason Easy, head, licensing U.K., BBC Studios. “The LEGO Technic Top Gear Rally Car is the result of several months hard work from the LEGO and BBC Studios teams, and we can’t wait to see it on the shelves soon.”
The model is remote controlled via the “LEGO Technic Control+” app and contains functions such as steering, multi-touch control and different challenges and achievements. The rally car comes complete with one large motor, one XL motor and one Bluetooth controlled smart hub.
“We are really excited to finally reveal the app-controlled LEGO Technic Top Gear Rally Car,” says Niels Henrik Horsted, marketing director, LEGO Technic. “The car offers a challenging build for ages 9+ who are into authentic play and intrigued about how things work. The control+ app gives an extensive play experience with several different play modes and exciting challenges.”
The LEGO Technic Top Gear Set will be available globally starting Dec. 26.
