The LEGO Group has struck up a partnership with the German car manufacturer Volkswagen to launch the latest version of the ubiquitous LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van, expanding upon its portfolio of cult vehicle LEGO builds.
The new LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van is based on its namesake of the late 1960s and ’70s and succeeds the previous LEGO Creator Expert Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, adding a whole host of new features, including a scaled up build and a new paint colour, sliding doors, as well as the trademark T2 wraparound baywindow front windscreen.
Under the hood, the set also features working steering. The LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van’s detailed camping interior is also fully equipped for the open road, with opening cabinets, fridge, sink and a gas stove with a teapot. The set even comes with a set of folding chairs and a surfboard.
Volkswagen Campers are of course synonymous with customisation, and the LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van set is fully prepared for personalisation, with a sticker set including retro decals and a choice of German or US number plates.
LEGO Designer Sven Franic, said: “The Volkswagen Camper is a rare breed of vehicle that commands affection like few others, and we know the LEGO version will bring a lot of fun to people who’ve been lucky enough to have or go camping in one, or always wanted one.
“Though the Volkswagen Camper is no stranger to our LEGO cars collection, this latest iteration brings even more delights for LEGO builders. The meticulously kitted out interior is sure to charm seasoned campers and adventurers alike, while the eye-catching exterior with pop-up roof is a feat of engineering just like the original.”
The LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van goes on sale on August 1st 2021 from LEGO stores and on LEGO.com at RRP 159.99 EUR / 179.99 USD / 149.99 GBP.
