Get a taste of genuine Italian style with the new LEGO® Vespa 125 model inspired by the iconic Vespa Piaggio. This elegant 1,106 piece set is designed to help style lovers find a moment of mindfulness through LEGO building as they step back in time to create this elegant display piece.
The new LEGO model pays tribute to the original Vespa with its pastel pale blue colour which resembles one of the first colours of this Italian icon. Fans can further celebrate the heritage of the set by adding a classic 1960s Italian licence plate and the Vespa logo.
Like the original this model is full of beautiful details and sophisticated design touches. From a bunch of flowers in the bike’s basket to the spare wheel, it also has a brick-built engine, kickstand and working steering, this model is sure to be one that is displayed with pride in your home or office to create your own tribute to Vespa.
“Working with the Vespa team to create this stunning automotive masterpiece 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. The set 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.” said Florian Muller, Senior Designer at the LEGO Group.
Marco Lambri, Head of the Piaggio Group Design Centre: “Working with the LEGO Group was an extraordinary experience, because it brought together two dreams – the LEGO brand and Vespa. Two outstanding brands able to span different ages, always able to reinvent themselves because they have the capacity to unite and to build in their DNA. As designers, the challenge was to have the soft shapes of Vespa coexist with the form of Lego bricks, a challenge I believe we met with flying colours.”
The LEGO Vespa 125 will be available from LEGO.com, LEGO Stores and other retailers globally from March 1st.
