Your true love may not send you two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree on the second day of Christmas, but that’s when LEGO will launch their new Technic set.
Set to hit the shelves on December 26, it’s been made in collaboration with Top Gear and it’s an app-controlled rally car with a unique design and special stickers, for ages 9 and above, for which you will have to pay $129 in the United States and £124.99 in UK.
The first LEGO Technic set designed in collaboration with the BBC Studios includes 463 small bricks, two motors and a Bluetooth controlled smart hub. After downloading the official app and pairing it to your phone, you will have to complete certain challenges and achievements that will make the whole experience more immersive.
Available in Google Play and App Store, the app supports multi-touch control, gyro control and lets you drive the toy car forwards and backwards, as well as left and right, and includes a few videos that should inspire you on what you can do with it.
“We are really excited to finally reveal the app-controlled Lego Technic Top Gear Rally Car”, said the Danish company’s marketing director, Niels Henrik Horsted. “The car offers a challenging build for ages 9+ who are into authentic play and intrigued about how things work. The Control+ app gives an extensive play experience with several different play modes and exciting challenges.”
