As a product of LEGO’s partnership with Land Rover, the latest Technic Land Rover Defender is designed completely to replicate the real vehicle, with never-seen-before details and mechanisms ensuring the highest level of realism. Consisting 2,573 pieces, the model includes accurately replicated unique body panels and rims, a fully independent suspension, a working winch, LEGO Technic’s most complicated gearbox ever designed, and actually runs as a four-wheel drive with three differentials.
“With every LEGO element, children can build anything they can imagine. I’m very excited about this new model – a truly impressive job done by our LEGO Group designers,” says Niels Henrik Horsted, Marketing Director of LEGO. “Together with Land Rover, we’ve blended elements, design and innovative engineering into a set that shows the boundless creativity of LEGO play, and that with LEGO Technic you can build for real.”
For the LEGO and automotive fans out there, the new LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender will be available October 1 at your local Land Rover retailer.
