Product Idea

Caterham Super Seven

Caterham Super Seven approved for production as a LEGO Ideas set!

We’re very excited to release bricktrix_Carl's Caterham Super Seven project as our next LEGO Ideas set! The final design, pricing and release date are still being worked out. For more information, see the LEGO Ideas Blog.


Congratulations on 10,000 supporters, bricktrix_Carl!

Dear bricktrix_Carl,

Congratulations on crossing the finish line with your Caterham Super Seven project! 10,000 race fans agree, and want to see your car turned into an official LEGO set. Your model perfectly captures the long legacy of Lotus and Caterham sports cars in LEGO bricks.

You've now qualified, and we officially advance this project to the Review phase.

What happens now?

This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A "LEGO Review Board" composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We'll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.

The LEGO Review Begins in September

This project qualifies for the Second 2015 Review, which includes projects that reach 10,000 supporters between early May and early September. For more information about the LEGO review process, please see the Project Guidelines and House Rules.

The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a "go/no go" decision to develop and sell a product based on the Caterham Super Seven.

When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.

We will post follow-up information and our decision here.


Congratulations! Your project's deadline has been extended.

On April 15, we announced in a blog post that LEGO Ideas is extending the time limit for projects to reach 10,000 supporters. Because your project originally reached at least 1,000 supporters within its first year (365 days), we've automatically added 182 days to your countdown clock, from the date your project was originally posted. If your project has over 5,000 supporters at the time of this comment, you've earned an additional extension of 182 days! Note: since these extra days are based on your project's original post date (and not today's date), you may see less than the maximum possible days reflected on your countdown clock.

For more information, see the time limit section of the Project Guidelines and House Rules. We hope you enjoy the extra time to reach 10,000 supporters, and best of luck on your project's continued journey.


Congratulations on 5,000+ Supporters!

Dear bricktrix_Carl,

You're well over halfway to the finish line! Such a beautiful model, and we love that you keep refining it into a viable LEGO product concept. It's almost as if you're applying Colin Chapman's "Simplify, then add lightness" design philosophy in your work.

Best of luck as you race on toward 10,000 supporters!


Congratulations on 1,000 Supporters!

Welcome to the 1k Club! You’ve reached an important milestone on your journey to 10,000 supporters and demonstrated that your idea is one people like; give yourself a pat on the back. You aren’t done yet however, so keep up the good work, and good luck!
