LEGO’S 911 GT3 RS TECHNIK GOES END-OF-LINE
Self-build scale model set for replacement
Lego is bringing production of its smash-hit 911 GT3 RS Technik model kit to a close. To celebrate, Lego teamed up with Porsche to capture one of the last kits ‘rolling off’ Porsche’s Zuffenhausen production line.
The 1:8 scale Lego Technic Porsche with its iconic orange bodywork made up of no fewer than 2704 pieces was first released in 2016 and will be replaced by a new model in 2019. The accessible cockpit features a detailed dashboard, working gearbox, steering wheel with gearshift paddles, racing seats and a glove compartment containing a unique serial number. Functions include opening doors and hood with storage compartment and suitcase, and an opening rear lid that houses a detailed flat six engine with moving pistons. The last few kits will be available up until the end of 2018 £259.99.
The kit was pictured with Porsche workers and inproduction vehicles at the company’s Zuffenhausen production line before appearing with a real life Porsche 911 GT3 RS as it exited the site via the famous streets that all Porsche cars travel down as they leave the company’s HQ.
