With the holiday season only a few weeks away, LEGO and its more advanced Technic line are preparing a special remote-controlled Top Gear GT Rally Car.

Marking LEGO Technic’s first partnership with Top Gear, the 463-piece set features three pieces that enable remote-control action: a large motor, an XL motor, and a Bluetooth-controlled smart hub. Although the car isn’t based on an actual vehicle, LEGO worked closely with the BBC Top Gear team to co-design the Group B-inspired body and the busy sticker set. Additionally the automobile is equipped with chunky tires and a hatchback-like appearance. The vision LEGO and Top Gear had was to create “an ultra-realistic and fast-looking racer that fans are sure to enjoy building at home,” according a LEGO press release.

“It’s exciting to have collaborated with LEGO Technic on this and it’s a very natural fit for the Top Gear brand,” said Jason Easy, Head of Licensing UK, 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.”

Using the LEGO Technic Control+ app, fans will be able to drive the car forward or backwards and steer. The Control+ app is currently available via the Apple store or Google Play and is also compatible with the Technic Liebherr R 9800 Excavator and 4×4 X-treme Off-Roader sets.

Interested readers will be able to purchase the LEGO Technic Top Gear Rally Car set starting December 26 for a retail price of $129 USD.

For more LEGO sets, this 43-inch, 4,784-piece Imperial Star Destroyer Set is perfect gift for that Star Wars fan in your life.
