Lego will soon start selling a new Technic set. For $ 49.99, anyone can purchase a functional replica of the Jeep Wrangler SUV.

“If you’re looking for an off-road vehicle but don’t feel like spending a lot of money to buy one, let the new Lego Technic Jeep Wrangler crawl around your table.” The new kit is priced at $ 49.99 and the company’s website states that the model will go on sale on January 1st.

This 665-part set depicts the Wrangler SUV in the more off-road version of the Rubicon.

The toy car has many of the features of a real car, such as folding rear seats, a full-size spare wheel and a winch. The doors and hood open too. The machine is made in yellow and black colors.

The Lego SUV is about 12 centimeters high, 24 centimeters long and 13 centimeters wide. For movement on the floor, the Lego Wrangler is equipped with steerable wheels with a thumbturn on the back. “Set up some books or other obstacles to create a track on which you can test the impressive articulation of the functional suspension wheels,” reads the official announcement for the new Lego set.

“The Jeep Wrangler is an icon in the off-road world,” said Lars Thigesen, Lego Technic designer. “The Rubicon has many iconic details that are popular with SUV fans around the world, so it was important for me to collect as many authentic, powerful characteristics of a real car as possible in a Lego Technic replica. I hope our builder enthusiasts enjoy every aspect, including the suspension, winch and open design, which we developed with Jeep’s talented design team. ”
