The wait is over! We've been polishing this yellow and black beauty all night so that we could finally present to you the first official images and details of the LEGO Ideas 21307 Caterham Seven 620R! Measuring in at 771 bricks distributed across 3” (10cm) in height, 11” (28cm) in length and 5” (14cm) in width, this Caterham contains stunning details to reproduce that awe inspiring Caterham look. 

This LEGO Caterham is racing to a store near you with availability from the 1st of October, 2016 for a recommended retail price of USD 79.99 / EUR 79,99.

Here is the official product description: 

Create a LEGO® version of the Caterham Seven 620R, a custom-built sports car with an unashamed old-school vibe. Power steering? No chance. Electric windows? Forget it. The Caterham Seven is definitely not for the faint-hearted—luxury is for wimps! Remove the nose cone, engine cover or engine to take a closer look at the authentic details of a LEGO model that’s for true car connoisseurs only.

 

Carl Greatrix, fan designer, and Henrik Andersen, LEGO Designer, share their insights:

"One of the most exhilarating drives I’ve ever had was out on the track in a Caterham Seven. It is brutally fast due to its light weight and tremendous fun to be in. It really struck a chord in my heart that I never forgot", Carl Greatrix a.k.a. bricktrix_Carl explains as he talks about his love for Caterham cars. 

This love turned to inspiration for his future LEGO Caterham model, Carl explains "When I got back into building LEGO car models I thought the shape of the vehicle would lend itself to being modelled well in LEGO bricks as it is very angular and if I could find a suitable scale then I would be able to get all the details into it that I would love to see".

Henrik Andersen, LEGO designer, shared his enthusiasm for Carl's work “Carl really did a great job of converting the real car’s shape into a LEGO version as both the sloping front and the hood are really complex”.

I haven't visited the site for some time but when a saw this clumsy monstrosity I got curious on who might have voted for it. Imagine my surprise when I realized that I was one of them when I finally understood how the original looked (I had to google the original image). Anyway, shame on you Lego for violating another designers work like this!

No, it can´t. It´s kind of weird Lego will produce such a big model without wheel steering, when the original idea had it.

The model looks really good, a little Lego-ish, though. I wish they made the exhausts in chrome silver or pearl silver, they look a little odd in light grey.

This is just typical of the LEGO design staff: they cannot let anyones' work alone. They just cannot imagine someone else might have better ideas.They got to tweak it, till it reaches the standard LEGO blandness that the company is famous for. I hope the original designer will post a Conversion Kit, a listing of parts to replace to kit's so we can retro-grade it back to its previous glory.

Why is it that this one was announced after the Adventure Time set, but is coming out before it?
