LEGO & Top Gear Unleash A Buildable App-Controlled R/C Rally Car

Nov 19, 2019

Category: Gear

LEGO’s Technic line has been chiefly responsible for producing some of the brand’s best automotive-inspired plastic building block sets of all time — including everything from modern hypercars to classic 4x4s. But now, for the first time, they’ve teamed up with the BBC’s Top Gear to produce a buildable, app-controlled R/C Rally Car.

Comprised of 463 different LEGO elements, this killer kit includes all the aggressive body stylings and graphics you’d expect out of a high-speed rally car — including a bevy of Top Gear-branded panels and even Stig-themed light covers on the front end. And while the looks of this set are certainly everything we’d want and more, they’re not nearly the coolest part of this offering. You see, this set includes a Bluetooth-controlled electric motor that allows you to drive the car around via a smartphone-compatible CONTROL+ app — which even contains a number of challenges and achievements for greater engagement. Set for a December 26th release date, this groundbreaking kit will retail for $129.

Purchase: $129
