If you’re a true car enthusiast, you would know the importance of LEGO models of your favorite cars. Land Rover understands that and has come up with the LEGO techno version which looks almost identical to the latest Land Rover Defender. The good news is that it costs only AED 899, so you won’t have to sell your car in Abu Dhabi to buy it. CarSwitch.com brings you the complete updates.
The much awaited Land Rover Defender made a comeback at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor show with some excellent off-road chops and its nostalgic boxy looks. In a crowd of sleek and elegant cars, the Defender stands out as being a rugged four wheeler and those who enjoy off-terrain rides will absolutely love the Defender’s most recent model.
The LEGO Technic version of this legendary off-roader is designed intricately showing even the smaller details of the original car. It packs the gearbox, engine, independent suspension, a working winch as well as an expedition roof rack. It won’t be unfair to say that it actually looks much more sturdy than its actual bigger self.
The LEGO set consists of 2,573 pieces and is 22cm in height, 42 cm in length and 20 cm in width. Looking extremely realistic, it has an independent suspension with a four wheel drive along with a gearbox. The automaker claims that it carries the most sophisticated gearbox they have ever made which can be adjusted for high and low ranges. It comes with accessories which include a working winch, authentic panels and rims, removable roof rack, and a storage box. This much details in a LEGO makes one think that maybe it is really a great time to be a car enthusiast.
If you’re still longing for more, you should know that it also has a detailed cabin. Inside the cabin, you get a working steering wheel and a dashboard with all the extras. You can pick up the bonnet to look at the 6-cylinder engine with moving turbines and surprisingly, you can push the rear seats forward to look at the four-speed sequential gearbox. Additionally, it also gets the rear-mounted spare tire which completes the look of the Defender.
This LEGO Defender is now available for sale all across the UAE. However if you’re planning to sell your car in Abu Dhabi and get the bigger 2020 Defender, we must tell you it will not be up for sale till next year. You can also find other SUVs with some killer off-road chops on CarSwitch.com, in case Defender is just not your thing!
