The LEGO Group has revealed the results of its first collaborative effort with BBC Studios’ Top Gear with the unveiling of its LEGO Technic App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car.
The new launch is an authentic looking GT Rally car for fans aged nine years and above and will be available globally from December, 26 2019.
LEGO Technic designers joined forces with the BBC Top Gear team to co-design the body of the car and accompanying stickers to create a realistic and fast-looking racer that fans are sure to enjoy building at home.
The model is remote controlled via the LEGO Technic Control+ app and contains functions such as steering, multi-touch control and gyro control as well as different challenges and achievements to deliver a thrilling, immersive play experience.
The rally car comes complete with one large motor, one XL motor and one Bluetooth controlled smart hub.
“It’s exciting to have collaborated with LEGO Technic on this and it’s a very natural fit for the Top Gear brand. 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,” said Jason Easy, head of licensing UK, BBC Studios.
