The new transmission system sports two levers for engaging high or low ratios and even a selector for changing gear. That’s not all, you can also fold the rear seat forward to view the four-speed sequential gearbox or lift the hood to view the in-line six cylinder engine with moving pistons. Available October 1, priced at $199.99.
“With every LEGO element, children can build anything they can imagine. I’m very excited about this new model – a truly impressive job done by our LEGO designers. Together with Land Rover, we’ve blended elements, design and innovative engineering into a set that shows the boundless creativity of LEGO play, and that with LEGO Technic you can build for real,” said Niels Henrik Horsted, Marketing Director at the LEGO Group.
