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”.
