The universe of LEGO is vast, the kits cover an extensive range of cars and buildings that span an impressive variety of themes. Whether you're interested in classic cars, modern cars or supercars and racecars, you're guaranteed to find a LEGO set that sparks your imagination and is good enough to make you happy with the purchase price. To cater to the different skill levels and interests of builders, LEGO offers a diverse range of kit sizes, from small and simple sets suitable for kids to larger, more complex sets that require a bit more technical prowess and are better suited for bigger kids and their dads. Enter LEGO Technic - These advanced building kits are composed of a unique type of LEGO block that includes movable parts and mechanisms, making them perfect for building more complex and technical creations like p[urpose-built racecars. While the end result of these kits is often much larger and more intricate than other sets, they also tend to be more expensive. While Peugeot isn’t one of the more mainstream automakers, the latest kit soon to be available from LEGO Technic is the Peugeot 9X8 24H Le Mans Hybrid Hypercar (kit build number 42156), and the kit pays tribute to 100 years of racing action at Le Mans in 2023, where the car makes its debut in the LMH class of the World Endurance Championship.

With a large total of 1775 pieces, this 1:10 scale model is an intricate project that will keep you busy for hours. This kit features faithful detailing, from the hybrid system with its V6 piston engine and model version of the electric motor and battery to the specially designed suspension and steering that can be operated using either the steering wheel or gear wheel on top of the car. The set includes LEGO Technic light elements that glow in the dark to capture the atmosphere of a real 24-hour race. The finished model measures over 13 cm high, 50 cm long, and 22 cm wide, making it a brilliant display piece for any car or LEGO lover's collection. While these things will usually end up on display, there are no worries if someone wants to play with it or if it gets dropped being moved between display spots because LEGO Technic components meet rigorous standards ensuring the components are strong and sturdy, which is why they are dropped, heated, crushed, twisted and analysed to make sure they meet strict global safety standards. With a price point of R3299 or R1.89 per brick (as per the site, but that may change depending on a variety of factors), it makes this kit a high-quality investment and will impress whoever sees it displayed.
