It’s a bit of a thing having Lego brick one of your products.

The latest addition to the range is the Lego Vespa 125 model inspired by the iconic Vespa Piaggio.

This elegant 1106-piece model stands 35cm long, 12cm wide and 22cm high.

It’s 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.

After 76 years of history and more than 19 million scooters, Vespa is a global reference for style and technology, a legend that has surpassed its function of an easy and elegant means of commuting to become an icon of fashion and design.

The new Lego model pays tribute to the original Vespa with its pastel pale blue colour, one of the first colours in which this Italian icon was made.

Fans can further celebrate the heritage of the set by adding a classic 1960s Italian license 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 and spare wheel to the removable engine cover, 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 the always-in-style Italian icon.

“Working with the Vespa team to create this stunning automotive masterpiece was an incredible experience,” Lego’s Florian Muller said.

“Recreating the details of the original model to celebrate the classic 1960s 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.”

The Lego Vespa 125 will be available from LEGO.com, LEGO Stores and other retailers globally from March 1 from a recommended $169.95.
