Peugeot 9X8 Hypercar in Lego technic form
Peugeot TotalEnergies have revealed its Peugeot 9X8 Hypercar in Lego technic in a 1:10 scale version ahead of this weekend’s 6 Hours of Portimao.
The real-life 4WD Hypercar’s electric powered 7 speed transmission has been replicated in precise scale in this new model, which also sports the hypercar’s unique doors, low-emission hybrid suspension, and elegant profile. Fantastic details such as the V6 engine and glow-in-the-dark light elements truly capture the thrill of racing.
This latest addition to the Lego Technic series measures over 13cm high, 9cm wide and 50 cm long when fully built. It will be available via Lego Stores and www.lego.com and through the Peugeot dealership network from 1 May 2023.
Speaking about the 1,775-piece marvel, Kasper René Hansen, Designer at the Lego Group said: “Our two brands have come together to create a product that celebrates a new era of hybrid racing and engineering. Recreating the shapes and details of such an elegant car using Lego Technic elements wasn’t an easy feat, but it’s been an honor to work so creatively with the Team Peugeot TotalEnergies on this one and I’m proud that together we have been able to build the Hypercar for real in Lego Technic form.”
