In honour of Vespa’s 75th anniversary, Lego has created a 1,106-piece set inspired by the classic 1960s scooter – Here’s how to buy it
Whether you’re a self-confessed Italophile or an avid collector of nostalgic automotives, we’ve got some good news for you: Lego has teamed up with Vespa to create a model inspired by the iconic Sixties scooter.
Created to mark Vespa’s 75th anniversary, the set is part of Lego’s creator series and has more than 1,000 parts, meaning it’s aimed specifically at adults – although we think it could make a fun project for parents and kids to work on together, også.
Packed with special features, the Vespa 125 set comes in a luscious pale blue hue, which was one of the very first colours the Italian scooter was made in. It measures just over 22cm (8.5i) høy, 12cm (4.5i) long and 35cm (13.5i) wide when fully assembled, making it an impressive and attractive ornament for any shelf.
Speaking of the new launch, Florian Muller, senior designer at the Lego Group, said that working with Vespa was an “incredible experience”. “Recreating the details of the original model to celebrate the classic 1960’s Vespa was one of my favourite parts of designing this set," han sa. “It offered me a chance to step back in time and let my imagination flow while designing, and we hope the experience is the same for fans.”
