Product Idea

Police Pursuit Vehicle

Police Pursuit Vehicle

For the Lego City police theme, I wanted create a unique design of police car and to propose it as a potential Lego product dedicated to the theme, present for many years.

The car:

This model is inspired by the american police cars.  Composed of 275 pieces.

_A new concept for the Lego city car:   Carry three figurines and their accessories. Driver and passenger in the front cabin and one minifig in the prisoner compartment. New doors, roof and trunk, openable. The doors are closed with a slight "click".

_Unprecedented driving position:   Improved steering wheel, speedometer, centre console with gear lever and cup holder, radio and VHF (new decorated plate)

_Carriage of accessories that are stowed and easily accessible:   On the front cabin: binoculars, soda can and gun. In the trunk: rifle, talkie and laptop computer.

_typical equipment for police interceptor car:   push bar, projector, light bar, and radio antenna.

_Evolving model: It is possible to turn it into a police speedboat with almost all pieces of the set. See the last pictures on my Flickr gallery : http://www.flickr.com/photos/154792671@N05/

Why create this model?

To offer a unique model for the Lego City police theme, that is in the values of the brand in terms of build quality and playability, by proposing an idea little or not exploited which is the possibility to take two minifigs in front-seat of the car, by staying in reasonable size of current Lego products of the theme while giving other realistic functions.

Method of construction

The model was realized with Lego Digital Designer and tested in real bricks to find the best assembly with current pieces. The objective is to get reasonable model size with a solid structure, enough realism without unnecessary parts. The bricks are optimally selected by chosing the most suitable parts for use the least pieces possible, for obtaining an solid optimum assembly.

A great Lego set?

The Lego City police seems to survive through time, why not propose a model that meets the expectations of a wider public? With always more playability for the young people and realism for fans of the theme.
