The LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender Is A Faithful Utility Vehicle Replica

The brick-building king has a special treat coming out soon to please gearheads who also appreciate collectibles. Feast your eyes on the LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender, which will replicate the legendary utility adventure vehicle with impressive accuracy.

This 2,573-piece LEGO Technic set boasts a working steering wheel and a 4-speed sequential gearbox. Taking a closer look, you’ll find the chassis carries three differentials, an independent suspension, and a working winch in case you want to tug on some other brick models. The 16.5-inch-long model is finished in olive green, which is a first for LEGO Technic, and it looks pristine from top to bottom. Although nothing is set in stone, this set is rumored to drop in October. It also looks like it will be based on the 2020 Land Rover Defender. There’s no word yet on how much the set will cost on home turf, but the UK price tag is $203.
