Lego Group announced Monday that it will launch a scaled-down replica of Nissan Motor Co.’s GT-R Nismo worldwide in January, marking the first-ever partnership between the Danish toy maker and a Japanese automaker.
The mini version of the turbocharged supercar will be the latest addition to the company’s Speed Champions series, which has already brought Lego-brick sports cars like Porsches and Ferraris to life.
The GT-R’s Lego kit, which consists of 298 pieces, will faithfully recreate the iconic taillights and other intricate details of the racing vehicle.
“Besides providing a wonderful and fun building and play experience, we hope the model will also inspire kids to learn more about engineering and how to create things in real life,” said Niels Christiansen, CEO of Lego Group, in a press release.
