If you’ve long lusted after a classic VW T1 Camper, this new low-cost model might be just what you’re looking for.

The bad news is that is really is a ‘model’ — one made from LEGO, in fact. The good news is that for around £70 (€70.99), it’s much more affordable than the real thing; as long as you can justify spending that amount of money on a box of 1,322 plastic bricks, that is.

The 1962 VW T1 Camper is 30cm long and 14cm high, and comes with 11 windows with plaid-print textile curtains, a detailed engine and a kitted-out Westphalia interior with a bench seat/folding bed. That authentic 1962 feel is also captured by the inclusion of a lava lamp. Non-functional, sadly…

It’s on sale from 1st October online and in stores, so until then, here’s a video that gives a bit more detail about the kit, along with a few photos.
