Here's a Land Rover Defender you'll be able to get before Christmas...but you'll have to build it yourself ... wonder if it'll break down?

The only way to get a new Land Rover Defender before the end of the year is to buy one you have to build yourself. Enter the Lego Technic Land Rover Defender.

The hype surrounding the New Land Rover Defender has been building for years. And while we’ve finally seen the thing in all its detail, Defender fans still have to wait until June next year (2020) to get their hands on one.

However, all is not lost. See, Lego has teamed up with Land Rover and launched the Lego Technic Defender, on-sale globally from 1 October. The launch of a Lego model isn’t a surprise as one of the Defender leaks was the box of the Lego Technic Defender model. Constructed from 2573 pieces of Lego, the Defender features an in-line six-cylinder engine, gearbox with high- and low-ratios, working winch, expedition roof rack, as well as the controversial independent suspension.

Both Lego and Land Rover believe the finished product is an excellent representation of the Defender with Joe Sinclair, Director of Branded Goods and Licensing at Jaguar Land Rover stating, “The level of detail and engineering that has gone into creating this Lego model perfectly reflects the work of our own designers and engineers who have been so dedicated to bringing a motoring icon back for the 21st century.”

The model's detail doesn’t stop with the exterior, though, and the Defender’s updated interior also included, with a detailed dashboard as well as working steering wheel. The transmission has two levers as well as a gear shifter connected to what LEGO Technic claim to be its “most sophisticated gearbox yet”.

The Lego Technic Land Rover Defender comes with four opening doors, and you can open the swing-out tailgate by turning the spare wheel. “You can also fold the rear seat forward to view the four-speed sequential gearbox, lift the bonnet to view the in-line six-cylinder engine with moving pistons and turn the rear-mounted spare wheel to open the rear door,” Lego said. The Lego Technic Land Rover Defender model measures 22cm tall, 42cm long, and 20cm wide, and comes in olive green, grey or black colour schemes.
